Are your customers’ needs changing?
There has been a significant increase in the renewable energy technology installations in homes. By now, almost 90% of our work in new builds includes heat pumps or PV panels. There is certainly more awareness among customers and using renewable energy is even more popular in the countryside where houses and businesses are not connected to the mains.
Why did you decide to register with Sero Net Gwynedd?
The opportunity to develop skills within our company and the ability to be trained locally appealed to me, especially as we work in such a rural and often remote area. Quality is very important to me in the business, so these courses help us keep up to date with the latest standards. Taking part also helps us evolve the business as we continuing to learn.

Have the skills you have learned through the project been useful to you?
I want to prepare my business for the future and the almost certain increase in demand for renewable energy installation skills. I want to be among the companies in this area who can meet this demand.
