ZERO CAPITAL CLEAN ENERGY – REDUCE ENERGY COSTS – EV CHARGING GRANTS – BATTERY STORAGE

From SevernNet Member Solarsense …

Powering the UK towards a smart, clean energy future

Climate Change & rising energy costs are concerns for us all.

At Solarsense we take our environmental responsibilities seriously and work hard to develop sustainable solutions for our clients.

Our clean energy proposal enables clients to reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions to achieve long term financial savings; by generating their own clean electricity under our fully-funded, subsidy-free, solar photovoltaic (PV) Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

We provide a “solar as a service” zero-capital route to reducing your energy costs, carbon emissions and protection from long-term energy price increases, as the scheme is locked into the RPI.

Use our capital today to start your clean energy journey and sometime down the line, when the timing is right, buy the system back from us if you choose.

We help companies like yours to enjoy the many benefits of sustainable clean energy technologies whilst preserving their capital.

Solar PV, battery storage, electric vehicle charging, LED lighting are just a few ways that Solarsense, the UK’s leading sustainable solutions company can help you to reduce your carbon footprint.

About Flexology
Kristal and her business partner have a background in Senior Management roles in Business. When looking for a new challenge they realised there’s a huge lack of options for those that want flexibility, with less than 1 in 10 roles advertised in this way. The research they completed showed a huge demand for flexible working from candidates, therefore they launched Flexology. They help clients close their skill and talent gaps, finding talented professionals, who are looked for full and part time roles, offered with flexibility.
