Outstanding opportunity to acquire a uniquely positioned renewable energy provider specialising in the design, installation and maintenance of ground source heat pump systems.
Trading for just over 6 years, the company offers a compelling free of charge service to its clients by utilising a UK government funding scheme providing a guaranteed 20 year revenue stream.
The company already owns and operates 36 commercial heat pump installations, increasing to over 100 by 2021 based on projects already committed. Guaranteed revenues from these installations alone are £44.8m.
