There are 3 main parts to our business: 1. Contract manufacture: We manufacture the award-winning range of C21e tiles and slates. These solar tiles and slates fit onto your roof like a standard tile; a 21st century building product, integrated and seamless. 2. Projects: We work directly with our clients to develop, design and install commercial, industrial and utility-scale solar. From barn roofs to grand bridges to ground-mounted solar, we’ve put solar on more types of sites than any other company in the industry. 3. Residential programmes: We work with social housing groups, retailers, banks and utilities to set up a system whereby they can offer domestic-scale solar to their customers. Just look at our success selling solar in Ikea stores. All our customers benefit from our experience in terms of engineering quality, superior yields and sheer breadth of deployment.
