Two minutes with Hero Renewables


Who are you?
Jill Oldham, managing director of Hero Renewables

What do you do?
I run the best renewable energy company in the country. We specialise in heat pumps, biomass and solar.

Where are you?
I’m standing outside our brand new head office in Middlewich, Cheshire. We have just opened our fabulous new showroom where we welcome the general public to visit us to learn about our renewable technologies.

How’s business at the moment?
Business is booming, word of mouth has become a major part of our business strategy, derived from our excellent customer service and professional installations up and down the country.

How could business be better?
The answer is obvious; the government needs to stop holding back on the renewable energy industry and start educating the UK instead of putting financial factors first. It’s their job to reduce the UK’s carbon footprint and protect the future for our children, at the moment they are failing us.

Who do you admire in renewables?
I admire my own team as they have such fantastic knowledge and their passion for renewables is second to none.

What’s the best business advice you’ve ever received?
Always plan ahead, if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Listen to your clients, without them you do not have a business – this is the reason why customers return to Hero Renewables.
