The Green Electrician Group has expanded its product portfolio to include solar panels from UK manufacturer Romag. 

County Durham-based Romag has been manufacturing panels since 2004 as an extension to its 70-year old world business of specialist glass manufacturing.  Romag panels use no Chinese components avoiding exposure to the European Commission’s Chinese anti-dumping investigation.

“There is a genuine appetite for British-made solar products and Romag has worked hard to improve pricing to compete on the world market,” said the Green Electrician Group’s managing director, Rupert Higgin.

“We are delighted to be offering Romag products to our customers, not only for their quality and performance but also for their low CO2 content due to the delivery and manufacturing process being close to home.”

A spokesman for Romag added: “We look forward to working with the Green Electrician Group to offer their customers the best of British manufacturing.  As the first UK solar panel manufacturer to receive the BSI kite mark, the performance and reliability of our solar products have been proved repeatedly in high profile installations across the country.  We continue to develop our solar product range to adapt to the ever-changing market offering on roof, in roof and bespoke options to meet various customer needs.”
