8th July 2022

2022 has already been an incredibly busy year for our team so far, as we continue helping ever-growing numbers of businesses to realise their Net Zero ambitions with low-carbon technologies like commercial solar panels. In recognition of our team’s hard work, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for the Burnley Business Awards in June 2022!

We’ve won the Environmental Excellence award at the Burnley Business Awards

We’re over the moon to have been named as the winner of the Environmental Excellence award at the Burnley Business Awards!

You’ve probably heard of the Burnley Business Awards – the annual event is organised by Burnley Council, with the singular aim of recognising, promoting and celebrating local enterprise. After an enforced hiatus over the last few years, the event enjoyed a stunning return to form this year with a glittering ceremony at Towneley Hall, attended by almost 500 people from the Burnley Business community.

As you’d expect, that meant competition for the awards themselves was quite intense, and things were no different for the Environmental Excellence category. We were up against some hugely impressive businesses, so it was a close contest, but ultimately we came out on top.

The judges specifically highlighted that we were chosen not just because of our focus on developing our own in-house team, but also our commitment to furthering environmental awareness and education in the community at large. (For example, we work closely with a respected charity to install solar panels in schools, and distribute a monthly e-book to our growing list of email subscribers.)

“It’s an absolutely amazing achievement for our team,” said Ged Ennis, our managing director. “We’ve always been very proud of being a Burnley-based business, and we take great pride in our continuing work with so many brilliant individuals and organisations in this fantastic community.

It’s heartening to do business with so many people in Burnley who are as passionate about the environment and sustainability as we are, and we’re excited to see what the future brings!”

The Chief Executive at Burnley Council, Mick Cartledge, said: “Yesterday evening truly was a celebration of the resilience of the people and businesses in our borough.

“It was an incredibly uplifting event and I know myself, UCLan and all of the judges and sponsors were blown away by the tenacity shown, as well as the incredible success stories.

“After a three-year break, the 2022 Burnley Business Awards will certainly be remembered. A huge congratulations to everyone who entered, who was shortlisted and who took home a coveted award.”

We are thrilled beyond measure to win this highly competitive award, but ultimately what matters most to us is, quite simply, helping customers like you to realise your own low-carbon ambitions.
