A renewable technology installer from Highbridge has been named May's 2014's Installer of the Month by Navitron – one of the UK's leading designers and suppliers of green energy systems.

Greenacre Renewables received the accolade after having continuously gone above and beyond for customers throughout the region during recent solar installation projects.

Mark Johnson of Greenacre Renewables, commented: "We couldn't be more proud to be named Navitron's Installer of the Month and have our hard work recognised!"

"Working as one of Navitron's partner installers over the past three years has been a great experience – and we look forward to helping even more homeowners and businesses save money on their utility bills and reduce their carbon footprints."

Over the past three years, Greenacre Renewables has performed over 70 solar PV and solar thermal installations throughout the Southwest - saving home and business owners thousands of pounds. 

Stephen Knight, Commercial Director at Navitron, commented: "Every installation is always finished to the highest of standards, so it was an obvious decision to award Greenacre Renewables as our latest 'Installer of the Month'. Mark Johnson is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of solar energy and he always ensures his customers fully understand all that there is to know about their new solar panels. 

Stuart Symonds from Burnham-on-Sea, commented: We had our Solar PV panels installed by Greenacre Renewables back in December 2011, and I couldn't be more pleased with the fantastic service they provided. 

"They were so helpful throughout the whole process. Not only were they on time and quick to work, but very friendly when it came to answering our questions – even tailoring the system to our needs and leaving us with comprehensive information about our installation. I've even recommended them to my neighbours who've had them install panels on their roofs! 

Stephen Knight, continued: "Thanks to Greenacre Renewables' expert work, home and business owners from across the Southwest have been able to enjoy the money saving benefits from renewable energy and government payback schemes – the Feed-In Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive."

Introduced by the Government during 2010 to help increase the level of renewable energy generation in the UK, the Feed-In Tariff is a scheme that pays people for creating their own 'green electricity' through the use of renewable technology. 

The RHI is the world's first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat which, similar to the Feed-In Tariff, pays participants that generate and use renewable energy to heat their homes or office buildings. 

Phase 1 of the RHI scheme, targeting businesses and non-domestic properties was launched in 2011; and Phase 2, which allows homes and other domestic buildings to benefit from government incentives, was recently launched on 9th April 2014. 

Both schemes were implemented as a way of helping the UK reach its target of 15% of total energy being generated by renewables by the year 2020.
