Cel-F Solar Systems Limited

Cel-F Solar Systems Limited

Ecolution began as Cel-F Solar Systems Limited renewable technology installation subcontractors operating within the commercial and domestic markets. We installed everything from solar PV, solar hot water, heat pumps, wind turbines, ventilation and heat recovery system within the South East. Starting as a small company, we had just 5 members of staff based in our very first office in Reading with only 3 vans of engineers out on the road completing the installations.

1999

Launch of the Ecolution Brand

Launch of the Ecolution Brand

As our business continued to grow we decided to rebrand and reinvent the company as we started our journey into new markets and larger prospects, Cel-F Solar Systems Limited soon became the well-known Ecolution brand. Our business model remained the installation of renewable systems however as our business continued to grow we started to target larger scale projects including the new build industry. We expanded our services nationwide, in order to keep up with the increasing number of projects each month our team also grew to 15 office staff and 5 vans of engineers.

Joint venture with HaWi UK

Joint venture with HaWi UK

Our distribution business began when entering into a joint venture with HaWi UK, German based solar photovoltaic distributors. They were seeking to move into the UK market so it made sense to partner with a leading UK solar installation company like Ecolution due to our knowledge and experience within the market. As the company diversified into different aspects of the renewable market we dramatically increased our customer base as we were now selling to other renewable installation companies across the UK.

New offices; Ecolution House

New offices; Ecolution House

As our company diversified we soon outgrew our East Park office and moved into our current head office based in West Malling, Kent. Ecolution House is a great location for us providing larger office spaces and warehousing for both our installation and distribution companies. Being a renewable energy based company it is our aim to ensure that we operate in a sustainable manner which is why when first moving into our brand new offices we installed a 10 kWp solar photovoltaic system which not only helps reduce our businesses running costs but most importantly helping us offset C0₂ each year.

2011

The launch of Ecolution Products

The launch of Ecolution Products

After initially partnering with HaWi UK to start up our venture into renewable distribution we decided it was time to continue this journey on our own which is when Ecolution Products was born. We launched a brand new website complete with an integrated solar PV design tool.

2012

Expanding our warehousing

Expanding our warehousing

Our installation and distribution businesses were booming so to keep up with the growing demand of the industry we expanded our warehousing. We converted a previously used store on a local farm just 5 minutes down the road, doubling our warehousing capacity. This tactical move enabled us to not only expand our products ranges within our distribution arm but also meant our installation company could provide much wider offerings to meet our clients’ needs. As we did with our head offices we wanted to ensure our new warehousing operation was also sustainable which is why we installed a 29 kWp solar photovoltaic system on the roof.

2013

The launch of Ecolution Energy Services

The launch of Ecolution Energy Services

After the success of our distribution company we became hungry to further expand the Ecolution Group, we quickly identified that there was a gap in the market for renewable technology maintenance, hence, Ecolution Energy Services was born. It was apparent that many customers with renewable systems were unaware or unsure of how to go about registering them for government incentives which is why as part of an additional service our team have been helping users with their Feed-In Tariff (FIT) payments.

The launch of Ecolution Electrical

The launch of Ecolution Electrical

Since 1999, Ecolution have provided electrical contracting as part of our package when tendering for renewable installations. However, due to the ever increasing demand we strategically choose to branch off this area of the company to launch our Ecolution Electrical. We now have a dedicated team of specialists focusing on the high quality electrical contracting allowing us to not only increase the value of contracts we can now look after but also improve our quality of service.

Additional Offices - Ecolution Barn

Additional Offices - Ecolution Barn

Check out our shiny new offices with an outstanding view of the countryside. As our Group expanded we soon outgrew our main office, we quickly renovated a unit next door to our second warehouse Ecolution Barn. This tactical move gave us additional space to further expand and also meant we could keep all our in-house workforce within just a 5-minute drive of one another.
