Advice on finding an installer of renewable energy systems

Energy Alton recommends using particular websites to find installers of renewable energy in your area.

We have decided not to recommend companies because it is hard to keep up to date and to find recent relevant experience to promote any one installer.

First go to our website and look at the advice section.  You can also check out the Carbon Trust and Energy Saving Trust advice sections too.

Then look for installers in your area.

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) lists all accredited installers of renewable technologies.

The government endorsed Trustmark website is a good place to look for reputable installers.

Preferably invite quotations from two or three suppliers and be sure to ask for references or up-to-date testimonials.  A quick chat with someone who has just had work done is valuable.
