Renewable energy experts Geo Green Power have moved to new head office premises at Bradmore Business Park, Nottingham, thanks to rapid growth in demand for its green energy solutions which is expected to see the business double in size by 2025.

With the company on target to grow its turnover by 50 percent this year to more than £18m (from £12m to 31 March 2023), Geo Green needs more space as team numbers have passed 60 people and will continue to rise. At 6000 ft over two floors, the new head office can house the existing office team of around 30 with capacity to more than double in the years ahead. Warehousing and supply will continue at Geo Green’s existing premises in Costock.

Geo Green Power operates nationally with multiple teams installing solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, electric vehicle (EV) charging, heat pump and battery storage systems in both the commercial and residential sectors for customers including Kingspan, Mitchells & Butlers, Inchcape, Mercedes-Benz and JCB.

James Cunningham, MD, Geo Green Power, said: “It’s been an incredible three years at Geo Green Power, our purpose-built offices have served us well but the rapid expansion that we have seen since 2021 has quite literally seen them overflow.  

“We’ve a fantastic team, and it was important that we moved to a location that would enable us to keep them all. I’m delighted that our new offices will give our people much needed space and storage, more meeting rooms, kitchen facilities and a fabulous break area which we’re still fitting out. It’s absolutely what they deserve for the hard work and commitment they have shown while delivering year on year growth.”

The recent energy crisis and the growing requirement for businesses to put in place meaningful sustainability plans to meet the UK’s Net Zero targets as well as growing consumer awareness of climate change is driving the renewable energy market. During COP28 it was highlighted that renewable energy would have to triple this decade in order to keep 1.5°C of warming as an achievable target. 

James added: “Modern renewable energy systems, solar PV in particular, have become even more efficient in recent years and at the same time installation costs have fallen. Payback is now typically within five years because of the significant reduction in energy usage and costs that can be delivered. There is also a huge emissions saving which can be achieved.”

Practising what it preaches, the company is planning to install 50kW of solar PV to power its new offices and four EV chargers for its growing fleet of EV and plug-in hybrid cars. 

Geo Green worked with commercial property agents FHP to secure the new premises at Bradmore (Unit A, Bradmore Business Park, Loughborough Road, Nottingham, NG11 6QA), which includes 25 car parking spaces and is leased for five years. Interior design and office fitout work was undertaken by 360 Commercial Projects.

Turnover growth at Geo Green has been driven primarily by the commercial sector, particularly in solar, and the company has secured major contracts in the automotive and manufacturing sectors. The company specialises in large-scale commercial projects for both new build and renovation projects and is able to deliver solutions that provide significant reductions in energy costs. 

Geo Green’s installation teams operate nationwide and at any one time the company is carrying out multiple renewable energy infrastructure projects. Typically, a large solar installation is carried out with little or no disruption while the customer continues to operate its business. Commercial installation work is generally completed and fully operational within a couple of weeks depending on scale.

James Cunningham said: “Through our installations we give our customers control of their energy and support for their sustainability goals. Our renewable energy systems are guaranteed for 25 years. We build strong customer relationships, providing ongoing service and maintenance for their systems and partnering with them on further renewable investments, as such we enjoy a significant amount of repeat business and recommendations. We have a strong commitment to high quality work and keeping our customers happy which will serve us well in the years ahead in our new home.”
