Though the raw materials needed to survive the notion of renewable energy are available, the high cost drives the public to shift focus and choose other exhaustive means. However, where there is a will, there is a way! Ploughcroft Renewables, UK’s most accredited renewable energy installer seemed to pave the way.
Established in 1996, Ploughcroft Renewables was started as a family business by a father –son duo, Chris and Bill Hopkins. The award winning company offers advice and installation of solar panels. The group also provides its services as attractive package deals to help the budget buyers. Ploughcroft, since its inception, has always worked on the solid principle of customer satisfaction. To ensure the same, the company also runs free surveys. The surveys promise ‘no forced buying’ but just plain advice to help you calculate your savings and detail you the benefits.
The basic aim of the group is to drive a clean energy revolution. Amongst others, heat pump services are provided to achieve the same. The heat pumps are available in variants, ground source and air source, to meet the requirements of the varied customer base. The heat pumps help to keep the UK buildings warm during the unpleasantly cold winter months. The fact that they use clean energy is what makes them popular.
When it comes to building and roofing, the quality of workmanship has made the company’s approach to be famously known as ‘Ploughcroft approach.’ The passion to deliver and the quality promise drove Chris Hopkins, to develop high class training to teach people the technique and the benefits of building and roofing with solar panels. Chris walked with an ideology of training people with high level techniques and then encouraging them to build their own businesses. While the father saw the idea as bonkers, Chris proceeded with it. The founder incorporated NVQ guilds for high level training. This led to the creation of franchise trademarked with the name ‘Roofman’. With the help of franchises, the company’s approach trickled down to the local level, thus continuing the success story. Building and Roofing service includes everything from refurbishment to full rewiring to plastering and fixing leaks.
Home Care package is another service on the company’s offer palette. The package delivers full fledged solar panel maintenance to its customers. The group, unlike other solar panel advisors, advices only once in a year thorough cleaning of the solar panels. Ploughcroft cleaning services sector uses, de-ionised and chemical free water to clean the PV panels. The Home Care package also includes a 6 monthly survey to check the output delivered by the PV panels installed.
Ploughcroft encourages people to install wind turbines and thus resort to clean and green energy for the home or office use. The expert wind turbine installation targets for the same. The group educates its potential customers about the wind turbines through simple tools developed on its online portal. Before making a decision to install one for your farm, home or office, with the help of wind power calculator and wind speed lookup, it’s easier to chalk out the benefits well before proceeding.
Even after boasting of a huge success story, the organization has not stopped its efforts to spread the word. It has just tweaked the means to get people hooked on to the means of conventional energy to suit the modern needs. As an incentive, the group offers to hand over Mark and Spencers voucher, worth 300 Pounds, to the family that successfully recommends Ploughcroft to friends and colleagues.
With development of tools like ‘Saving Calculator’ or online advice direct from the Managing Director of the company, Ploughcroft endeavors to inform and educate its visitors. The campaign of informing and making its potential customers aware is the Eco Roof Visitor centre. The Centre is built for the people who would want to assess the practical benefits of the renewable energy sources and then take decisions. At Eco Roof, NVQ trained professionals educate people with live demos and informative exhibits.
