We are proud to announce we were named Scotland’s Solar PV Installer and Contractor of the Year at the Energy Efficiency Awards in Glasgow last night (7 June 2019).
We also picked up a commendation for excelling in Vulnerable Customer Support, recognising the designated AES Solar helpline offering free advice in light of recent solar scams.
These prestigious accolades comes less than two months after a regional energy efficiency award panel chose AES Solar to win the Best Energy Efficiency in House Design or Build category for our work on a remote property in the West Highlands, and featured on Channel Four’s Grand Designs House of the Year 2018.
A year of celebration
It adds to what has become a busy year of celebrations for the company which has been successfully trading for 40 years.
George Goudsmit, managing director, said: “Every day we strive to be the best in the business, and this accolade shows that those efforts have paid off. We were up against tough competition, and to win this award makes us proud to have built a team that truly is the best.
“This is the icing on the cake for our birthday year. It’s good news for our customers too. They can be confident that from beginning to end they are dealing with a professional, industry-leading company, whether they are a single domestic user or a large housing developer.
AES Solar is the only manufacturer of solar thermal panels in Scotland, employing 15 people at their head office in Forres with a recently opened Edinburgh branch to meet the growing Central Belt demand.
Adapting to change
Technical director Campbell MacLennan added: “We started in 1979 designing and manufacturing solar thermal panels. Over the years solar PV evolved, becoming more widespread and cost-effective. We have continuously adapted to these changes in the marketplace, reflected in our position as multi-award winning industry experts.
“Awards are a fitting recognition and reward for always striving towards the highest quality of products and workmanship. Strengthened further by our MCS and ISO 9001 accreditation, which we’ve held for more than 10 years, this provides our customers with the high level of confidence they require.
We really are the solar specialists and wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and expertise of our excellent team.
