What people say

We value the experience and due-diligence applied to this project by Planet Solar Consulting, a team of industry insiders with practical experience of project development, design and implementation over nearly two decades.

Will Johnston – HSE Manager – Ryobi Aluminum Castings (UK) Ltd

Planet Solar Consulting provides a level of solar focused services that are not readily available from the usual Low Carbon and M&E practices, and we recommend Andy as a trusted and experienced solar professional

Sam Pickles – Environmental Manager – GMFRS

I’ve known and worked with Andy on solar projects since 2005. He delivers projects on time and on budget, every time. The solar market has never been busier, and working out the best option can be bewildering. Andy makes going solar simple and assured.

Alan Rea – Social & Affordable Housing Professional

Pembroke Alliance reduces costs and increases profitability – Planet Solar Consulting are a valued and key part of our team, enabling us to deliver excellence in solar on behalf of our commercial clients.

John Daly – CEO – Pembroke Alliance

Element Consultants has worked closely with Planet Solar Consulting for over a decade. Our success depends on a network of experts that complements our experience base. We are a trusted practice with an impressive reputation. Planet Solar enables the very best standards in solar to be delivered throughout the project lifecycle.

Tony Traill – Director – Element Consultants

The advice we received from solar installers varied widely in terms of system size, specification, performance forecast and price. We therefore employed Planet Solar Consulting to manage the whole process on our behalf. This has proved a valuable insurance policy against a major capital investment.

Michael Petticrew – Operations Director – Dennisons Volvo

Our architect recommended Andy and the Planet Solar Consulting team. We were able to understand our solar and battery storage options, realistic system performance based on our household and lifestyle, and make an informed buying decision. We couldn’t have differentiated between the quotes received without Andy’s advice. Getting reliable and trusted advice before buying solar proved to be a sound investment.

Michael & Aleksandra Parker – Homeowners

Working with Andy was an absolute pleasure, professional, efficient and friendly from the very start. His knowledge and insights when evaluating our solar options was extensive, we became aware of details that we simply would not have seen if it wasn’t for his guidance. I wouldn’t hesitate to work alongside Planet Solar Consulting again.
