The company’s industry experience has positioned them as industry leaders in accessing various funding opportunities including the Energy Company Obligation (ECO4), Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF), the Great British Insulation scheme (GBIS) and many others.

With the solar market growing at a strong pace, InstaGroup has launched its first fully-connected Solar PV system, InstaGen, which includes panels, battery storage and inverters, along with a user-friendly app that enables the consumer to be in control of their system and energy usage. With increased demand for this product, they have partnered with award-winning UK renewables wholesaler, Midsummer.

Next level service and support

Tom Livesey, Purchasing Director at Midsummer comments: “Here at Midsummer, we are thrilled to announce our new partnership with InstaGroup to distribute their range of InstaGen products. InstaGen has been tried and tested internally at InstaGroup, and their extensive on-the-tools experience ensures it will deliver the next level of service and support that the industry demands.

“Instagroup places a high value on customer relationships and prioritises customer service – something that closely aligns with our values at Midsummer. Combining Midsummer’s expertise in full system design, warehousing, and nationwide logistics, with InstaGroup’s knowledge and resources in the ECO4 and scheme space marks the beginning of an exciting journey together.”

Paul Griffiths, Solar Manager at InstaGroup adds: “During the peak of the feed-in tariff, circa 2012, the supply of InstaGen panels enabled us to support our vast network of customers and navigate the hurdles that they encounter within the renewables sector.

“The complexities of integrating products from various manufacturers can often lead to complications, therefore, we developed a fully connected system along with a consumer app that offers technical support and product monitoring.

“The expertise from Midsummer, including bespoke software, helps solar installers master the complex process of project design and optimisation, which is impressive. We’re looking forward to working with Midsummer as this new partnership ensures the installers needs are met and a personable experience is provided from beginning to end”.
