Customer reviews and testimonials
Our customer's say much more about us than we ever could...
"As we have expanded the business, our power costs have increased. With solar offering cheaper electricity, a good return on investment and the commercial benefits of being a "green" plant hire Company, it was not a difficult decision to make. The solar will also really help us towards our ISO 14000 accreditation.
We were very pleased with the first installation Mypower did for us in 2011 and had no qualms in asking them to quote for solar on our new building. The upfront advice received from Mypower was very helpful and their involvement with WPD saved us some money. Ben worked with us every step of the way to dovetail the installation in with the erection of the new building, saving us money on access and scaffolding. He was very professional in all that he did, taking control but keeping us fully informed throughout the project and dealing with all the paperwork. The installation team were friendly, helpful and flexible with all going to plan and the deadlines being met."
Simon Tomblin, Managing Director, Rocket Rentals
"Choosing the right installation contractor involved the selection of a firm who were able to deliver an installation to match the quality of the building, work within the restrictions of a structure of this age and in harmony with the cathedral’s status as a place of daily worship which is also visited by nearly 500,000 people each year….The installation of solar panels on such a beautiful and beloved building as Gloucester Cathedral has raised interest locally and nationally so it's been fantastic that Mypower have been taking such great care with the work. Since starting on site, the team have identified a way of hiding the ballast beneath the panels which our structural engineer is delighted with. And they've managed to accommodate both the physical restrictions of the site and the fact that we're a place of worship as well as a busy destination for visitors. We’re delighted with [the solar panels] – and with Mypower generally and Ben specifically!"
"I’ve just taken Dean Stephen up to the roof. He is extraordinarily impressed and looking forward to meeting you and thanking you personally"
Anne Cranston, Gloucester Cathedral's Project Manager
Speaking on BBC Radio, the Dean of Gloucester said "It's actually an incredible installation, it's so well done by Mypower... It's a work of art when you can see it and of course when people do go up one of the tower tours, that's the only place they'll be able to see the solar panels from"
"Mypower responded magnificently to the challenge of installing the solar PV array to the nave roof at Gloucester Cathedral. The logistics were daunting, and the need to work respectfully in this ancient place of worship added further complexities to the project. However, Mypower were always ready to rise to the challenge and added creatively to the process, resulting in a beautiful as well as functional, end product"
Antony Feltham-King, Principle Architect for the cathedral
"From the first moment I stepped onto the roof of this incredible building, I knew it was going to be a challenging but thrilling project to be involved in. Everyone involved has worked together in full cohesion to deliver a common goal, to protect the historic building and create a green energy source for the long-term sustainable future of the Cathedral. We are all incredibly proud of what has been achieved - it has been the opportunity of a lifetime"
Ben Harrison, managing partner of Mypower
"I would have no hesitation recommending Mypower to any potential customer. Of special note was Ben Harrison's attention to detail and energy, driving the project to a successful conclusion during Bako Western's peak summer trading period.
The management team at Bako Western now view the weather forecast with extra interest and have already monitored significant savings since the installation was commissioned".
Stuart Wilson, General Manager, Bako Western
“Investigating the right supplier takes time which can be hard to find and having decided to commit our business to Mypower, the whole job was taken off our hands. Mypower managed the scheme completely and efficiently, so that we could get on with our business. It was all very fuss free and well managed. The panels are hardly visible on the new building and don’t spoil the look of any of the older buildings, a very important factor for Sheppy’s.”
Louisa Sheppy, Sheppy's Cider
"Our PV array not only makes financial sense but also differentiates us in the marketplace extracting further commercial value from the initiative. Credit must go to the whole team at Mypower who calmly delivered the project against the inevitable FiT revision deadline".
"This investment not only supports our zero carbon operation goals but also demonstrates the scale of our commitment to a move to a sustainable economy.
Currently my Tesla is the only vehicle that runs on electricity but as we electrify more of our distribution fleet we are likely to be back for an extension to the installation to cover the flat roof over the offices".
Toby Robins, Sustainable Development Director, Wiles Greenworld
To Steve Edmunds of Mole Valley Farmers
"As advised we contacted your office who put us in touch with Ben Harrison from Mypower. We could not have asked for a more helpful person. He has guided us through everything we needed to do in order to get a 20kw system up and running before March 3rd.
Along with his team Ben was extremely conscientious and efficient. The whole process went through very smoothly and we are delighted to be producing our own energy.
His design of the construction, explanations and keeping us informed along the way as well as his helpfulness with the paperwork and advice was exactly what was needed.
Thank you for putting us in touch with Ben Harrison and Mypower. We would highly recommend them."
J Hitchon, Ledbury, Herefordshire (Mr. Hitchon now has 50kwp of solar)
“Making any new investment into technology that is an unknown to you takes a lot of research, meeting numerous suppliers and getting a consensus of target results to be achieved. After my detailed research I always felt a roll out to a bigger system was likely. I engaged with an engineer to help me with the final selection.
Ben Harrison of Mypower worked hard to gain the order, planned and installed the system with a very high degree of professionalism. Mypower’s price in the tender process was competitive and following my research on Mypower and verifying their references I awarded them the contract based on professionalism, attention to detail and price as well as their complete project management offering. We are very happy with the results to date."
Alan Walsh, Chairman, Walsh Mushrooms
"I felt I must write directly to you following the installation of the PV equipment. It is a rarity these days to have contractors do what they say they will, when they say they will and better!
I must praise your installation team who installed the PV units on the roof, working around the roof lights and doing a very smart job. The installation of the meters was really thoroughly, professionally carried out.
I would also like to give a special thank you to Mr Ben Harrison who has patiently dealt with a thousand questions from us and once we had decided to go ahead dealing with the minutiae of the paperwork, we would have been lost without him.
A very big thank you to all concerned."
Mr & Mrs Meek, Cam, Gloucestershire
“We are very pleased with the PV installation, not only is it perfectly matched to our refrigeration requirement, producing more electricity when we need the most refrigeration, it is also performing above expectation. The installation itself was hassle free and didn't impact on the day to day operations here at Lye Cross Farm, overall a very worthwhile project".
Peter Alvis of Lye Cross Farm, Bristol
“From start to finish Mypower were so professional and everything was delivered on time as promised. I didn’t believe it was going to be so straight forward and involve so little of my time, all I had to do was listen, take advice from my accountant and sign the cheques! Ben organised everything".
Potato farmer, Cornwall
"I had been thinking about investing in renewable energies to make our properties more attractive to tenants. Solar was a logical investment and offers protection against rising electricity costs which means we can pass the savings onto our tenants".
Craig Sharp, Managing Director, Allen Fabrications Ltd
"It was important we found the best location for the panels. With Ben Harrison's advice we decided the best spot was a small paddock grazed by sheep which had easy access but wasn't an 'eye sore' to anyone. From start to finish Mypower were so professional and everything was delivered on time as promised".
Mr Bullock, Aston Farm, Bourton on the Water
Farmer and TV presenter, Adam Henson..."I'm Stow born and bred and the rugby club featured strongly in my youth. Now that the likes of Alfie and Jack are coming up through the rugby club, it's great to know that its future is being secured through great, sustainable initiatives like this".
"Adam is a great supporter of the club - it's because people like Adam and Ben care so much about the club that we can be so forward thinking. This is a major project for the club but one which will reap returns for us for many years and help secure our future". Dave Oughton, U-17 Coach and Stow Rugby Club Committee member
