In addition, Solarscotia is able to offer regular service and support contracts for system users.

It is with great delight that AES Solar and Solarscotia are pleased to announce that they have joined forces! AES Solar established in 1979 are an experienced manufacturer, designer, supplier and installer of solar thermal and photovoltaic systems and in the industry hold a respected presence with the Solar Trade Association and other influential trade bodies.

Solarscotia are a small firm established in 2007 and were among the first companies to be accredited for solar installations in Scotland and have built a reputation on high quality installations with a friendly service delivered with exceptional technical expertise.

The merger of these two North-East firms, who between them have designed, installed and commissioned some of the largest Solar Thermal systems in the UK, gives the opportunity to expand their reach and reputation whilst still retaining excellent customer service, comprehensive local knowledge and unrivalled technical expertise within the solar technologies market. The brand of Solarscotia will remain and will continue to operate under the umbrella of AES Solar to continue to harness the sun for Scotland and beyond.

George Goudsmit, Managing Director of AES Solar, said “The merging of the two major players in the North of Scotland renewable energy arena offers fresh and unique standards of system design and installation abilities. With over 46 years of heritage between us, we will continue to offer supreme service from our highly experienced and qualified teams along with tested backing and warrantees. We are confident that together we will ensure sustained growth for the company and our local area.”

Stuart Danning, Director of Solarscotia, said “I am delighted with the outcome of this merger and it gives two like-minded organisations the capability to further their reach and deliver carbon savings to the high standards our customers deserve.”

An ‘average’ installation will save 400kg of carbon over a year from being released into the atmosphere – depending upon what fuel you are replacing (EST). Other than saving money on your hot water and producing less CO2 you’ll be doing another good thing too. A solar thermal or PV (photovoltaic) system may increase the value of your property by improving your homes energy performance rating.

Did you know that the amount of solar energy intercepted by the earth each minute is MORE than the amount of energy that the world uses in fossil fuels each year!!(Wikipedia). There is no shortage of solar energy – EVEN in Scotland – here in the North East we get around 1000Kw hours per square metre (Scottish Solar Energy group). After everything this could provide up to 70% of your hot water needs over a year.

Photovoltaic systems have enjoyed outstanding recent popularity, largely due to the Feed In Tariff but also because of falling material costs. The Feed In Tariff is now the subject of quarterly reviews in terms of the tariffs paid however, it is our genuine opinion that PV will still constitute a solid investment once the new rate is applied, offering returns of around 4.8% p.a. Returns will improve as power costs increase over the coming years and we genuinely believe that renewable technologies in receipt of Feed In Tariff income will form a new and stable investment class.

It is our aim at Solarscotia to continue delivering sound advice coupled with first class design and installation services to this developing sector for both domestic and commercial clients.
