New base and team member as we look forward to a solar-powered 2021 

It has been a challenging year for everyone, but we are looking positively to the future after appointing a business development manager and opening another new base.

HIT Energy Services is pleased to announce that  Debbie Parker has joined us and will be looking to develop our services in Worcestershire and Bury St Edmunds.

Debbie was a regional manager for a leading vehicle firm and will help us in our ambition of keeping more and more of the U.K. solar powered.

To achieve this, we are also opening a new office in Warwickshire, which will enable us to help more farmers, landowners and businesses with Solar PV in the area.

“It is kind of fitting that Debbie joins us as we announce the opening of another new base,” said Simon Hopkins of HIT Energy Services.

“Ironically, despite Covid locking us down for much of the year, 2020 was a period of great expansion for us.

“From our Lincoln headquarters, we are slowly growing our services around the country as more and more people join our solar revolution.”

While lockdown in the first half of 2020 created many challenges for us and our customers, the second half has proven one of the busiest, with a number of new developments and awards.

One of the most exciting of these came in August when we moved into a new base at Lincoln University.

From the site, we monitor £16.5m worth of solar assets across the U.K., which are in areas ranging from Great Yarmouth to West Wales and Southampton to Glasgow.

The move also means we can continue to innovate and develop our technology with some of the university’s most creative minds.

Then in September came an incredible achievement for our company – we beat hundreds of others to finish seventh in a list of some of the brightest businesses in the region.

The Midlands Tech 50 ranks the most exciting and innovative firms, from start-ups to established players, and is compiled by industry news magazine BusinessCloud.

And then in October, we opened a base at the Active Business Centre in Bury St Edmunds, which will help us monitor Solar PV systems in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.

Simon added: “I think most people will be glad to see the back of 2020, and all the challenges it brought to everyone.

“But I am proud of how the team pulled together in what were at times difficult circumstances.

“We would like to wish a very merry Christmas to all our customers and clients and look forward to what promises to be an exciting 2021.”
