Client Comments

“Whilst our needs and desires to improve our green credentials and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels has been a key focus over recent years, we are also ever mindful of the financial strength of our business. Our new solar pv array will generate green power for just 1.6p per kWh. This is an 87% reduction on today’s open market value of electricity! Boston Renewables have done a great job for us and we’d have no hesitation in recommending them to other businesses.”
