Going renewable?

We discover how OPC Energy Ltd can help anybody considering a renewable energy solution for their home or business.

Time spent at home has somewhat defined the past year of our lives, and with so many days spent between those same four walls, many have found themselves finding ways in which to improve them, from simple licks of paint and perhaps a new piece of furniture, to the very way in which they warm and power their homes. For those thinking about the latter, finding a renewable energy solution is quite possibly near, if not at, the top of the list of priorities. In fact, at a time when the impact of a changing climate has never been more apparent, it’s fair to say that more people than ever are looking for ways in which they can play their part in the building of a cleaner, greener future.

But what, exactly, is renewable energy? By now, most of us have a rough idea. Solar power, for instance, quickly springs to mind, but by definition, any renewable energy source is one that will naturally replenish and, crucially, never run out. That last point is of particular importance, given the increasingly demanding lifestyles that those in the modern world lead. Whilst the move away from traditional energy sources like coal and natural gas is key in how we combat climate change, there’s no denying that their renewable replacements have their work cut out for them. Just think about all of the devices, lights and appliances that your household runs during the average day, and you’ll realise just how true that is!

If this sounds like you, then you’ll be on the lookout for a tried and trusted expert in renewable energy, preferably one with years of experience and with access to the industry’s best available technology and solutions. This is where OPC Energy comes in. OPC Energy was established in 2012 by Managing Director, Gary Salter, who has worked in the renewable industry since 2006. An early adopter of new technologies and renewable energy, Gary is truly an innovator at heart, and has built a company whose sole motivation is improving the energy efficiencies of homes throughout the UK.

Since starting the business, Gary has built a team that offers expertise across the full range of renewable technologies, as well as some more traditional heating solutions. But with a number of renewable companies offering renewable energy, why choose OPC? “Our commitment is to provide our valued clients with the best eco-friendly solutions. We love doing what we do, and our teams consist of friendly industry experts, so when you work with us, you’ll feel like part of the family,” says Gary, summarising the OPC Energy ethos. With full accreditation and compliance with all industry standards, the company has worked closely with countless homeowners, architects, developers and housing associations across the UK, and now, it brings this wealth of experience to the very heart of Cornwall.

Based in Scorrier, OPC Energy’s newest office is in prime position to cater to the whole of the Duchy, and with more interest than ever from home and business owners who are looking to future-proof their Cornish properties, without compromising on any aspect of their dream by-the-sea lifestyle, it could not have opened at a better time. If your home improvement goal is to ensure your home is playing its part in the fight for a cleaner future, then be sure to give OPC Energy Ltd a call.
