Deepings firm a partner in new solar power venture

Have your say

A ROOFING firm has joined forces with an electrical engineering company to launch a new business specialising in installing and maintaining solar panels.

Deeping St James-based Manor Roofing and Bourne-based Cawoods Electrical last week launched Manor Solar which will provide photovoltaic (PV) panel services across the East of England region.

The firm will be based at Manor Roofing’s current premises at the Old Station Yard, in Station Road, Deeping St James, and a new website has been launched.

Ian Holdup, Manor Roofing contracts director and Manor Solar co-founder, thinks the solar panel industry is on an upward curve at the moment and the partnership was an extremely sensible move given the expertise of both firms.

He said: “Solar energy is becoming more widespread in the UK but we quickly realised that to give home owners the most appropriate products for their property requires the combined knowledge and expertise of qualified roofers and solar PV panel engineers.

“Our two firms offer expertise in our own field, which means we can provide a complete solution under the new company, not just a bolt on to our regular individual services.”
