Plumb Center Green Award win

11 October 2010

Plumb Center has scooped the prize for the best Green Initiative at this year’s CORGI Awards held at the Ricoh Arena.

The accolade was awarded for SolarReady, a solar roofing service designed specifically with the needs of the solar installer in mind.

The service takes away all the hassle of installing solar panels on the roof of a property, leaving the installer free to carry out all the internal associated pipe work and plumbing.

Plumb Center teamed up with leading roofing company, Ploughcroft to provide the service which saves the installer time, effort and expense by removing the need for working at height, invest in safety training or the purchase/hire of costly installation equipment.

“We are delighted to win this prestigious Green Award,” said Simon Allan, Renewables Director, Plumb Center. “We are committed to helping traditional plumbing & heating engineers to be successful in the renewable heating sector allowing them to capitalise on the business opportunity at the same time as helping their customers reduce their carbon footprint.

For many the thought of handling a 40kg panel at the top of a ladder is a major barrier and without the required training can often be dangerous. “The SolarReady service ensures that the solar panels are expertly fitted by roofing contractors qualified to work on all types of roof.

This leaves the installer free to do what they are experienced and comfortable to do – all the associated plumbing work. “And, for the homeowner, faced with increasing energy costs, and the ever increasing desire to reduce CO2 emissions solar panels are becoming a good investment.”
