Having long dreamed of a hydro installation on our private burn, we sought high and low for a company who were willing to take on a smaller scale scheme which remained viable within the parameters of our finite budget. Renewables First happily stepped in to accommodate us, providing importantly a positive feasibility study and secondly going on to carry out and manage all aspects of the scheme, including design and construction; taking us through the complicated planning process involving a sensitive tree protection area as well as obtaining all the necessary environmental agency approvals and licences and finally obtaining OFGEN registration and accreditation. To the layman, this service was invaluable.
We found all the engineers at Renewables First extremely professional and very personable. We were kept fully in the picture at every stage and provided with patient advice and assistance, even after commissioning. Thanks especially go to our project manager, Adrian Ezard, who ended up becoming a friend in the process.
