Following a 200% increase in sales this year, Neal Energy Solutions, run by brother and sister team Shawn and Samantha Hogan, has, today, launched a new showroom to capitalise on the surge in orders.
More than £20,00 has been invested in kitting out the facility, which is on the outskirts of the city, with a host of solar panels, EV charging points and air source heat pumps suitable for both domestic and commercial applications.
Natural next step
“This was a natural next investment for us having passed the £2m sales mark early this year,” explained Shawn, who has been specialising in solar solutions since 2018.
“Interest is coming from homeowners and businesses, and we can only see this continuing as we all look at more cost-effective ways to power our houses, offices and factories.”
“We wanted to give ourselves a physical presence,” he continued. “So, we decided to take on the showroom on the Stafford Road, one of Wolverhampton’s busiest routes and close to the main motorway network.
“There’s lots of space to showcase brands and products and that will help guide the conversation with the customer, giving them the immersive opportunity to compare models side by side.”
Technical experts will be on hand to talk customers through product features and the latest innovations, with the back office also acting as the logistical hub for planning what is often 50 plus installations every week.
The showroom was officially opened today with legendary Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Steve Bull cutting the ribbon and staying to talk and sign autographs for the 100 or so guests expected to be present.
Ahead of today’s event, Samantha commented: “We are really looking forward to the celebrations. A lot of businesses are already signed-up to attend and we’ll also be welcoming people who may just be popping by and want to see what we do.”
Accredited to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and Home Insulation & Energy Systems (HIES), Neal Energy Solutions is also approved to deliver the eco4Scheme, a programme designed to address fuel poverty and promote energy efficiency in households.
This gives homeowners access to funding to fit energy-efficient measures, such as insulation, heating upgrades and renewable energy installations.
