HIT Energy Services has been named as one of the top green companies in the U.K., fighting to save the environment.
Hundreds of organisations had been eligible to feature on the EnviroTech 50 list.
But a shortlist of 93 was compiled, with readers of Business Cloud magazine having their say before an independent judging panel put together the final list.
Not only did HIT Energy Services make the top 50 – but the company was ranked at number six overall.
“This is amazing news. We started as a small Lincolnshire company, but to be recognised like this nationally illustrates how much we have grown,” said Simon Hopkins of HIT Energy Services.
“Our inaugural EnviroTech 50 ranking is the latest in our innovation series across sectors – and a showcase for companies with truly ground-breaking solutions to protect the environment and boost sustainability,” said Jonathan Symcox, editor, BusinessCloud.
“Green energy is central to this and it’s fantastic to see HIT Energy Services, a company we have long been aware of, ranking so highly.
“It’s a privilege to shine a light on so many admirable companies.”
Simon added “When we set out on our journey only a few years ago, we wanted to make solar a reliable, green and viable form of energy for everyone.
“Our reach has grown massively in a short space of time, and we believe there are exciting times ahead for our innovations and services.
“To have this recognised by being placed in the top 10 of the EnviroTech 50 list is incredible and shows what a bright future solar has.”
The 93 companies that had been shortlisted are all headquartered in the UK and are creating original tech for green energy and to protect the environment.
Business Cloud readers first of all got seven days to cast their votes, before judges gave their input – with HIT Energy Services one of the top ranking companies.
Simon added: “We are passionate about helping people live greener lives and were thrilled to just get shortlisted.
“To make the top 50 and to feature so high up is incredible and we can use that as a springboard to keep growing our reach across the U.K.”
It is an exciting time for HIT Energy Services after the company teamed up with Boston Renewables, in a move that will help thousands of people make the most out of solar.
We have also started offering licences to like-minded electrical contractors to help us spread our reach across the country.
This means they will be able to access our award-winning platform, installing and maintaining it for solar users in their local area.
“As a licence holder, electrical contractors will be able to work with us to help us keep up with increasing demand,” Simon said.
“There is currently huge demand in the solar market for our products – so we want to find experienced electrical contractors who understand the importance of marketing and have a strong customer services ethos.
“As part of the licence package, we will give them a designated area of the U.K. to operate in exclusively. We believe it really is an exciting time to come on board with us.”
Services we offer include our free health checks of Solar PV – where our engineers will get the systems generating to their full potential.
When they carry this out, we can give a valuation of export tariffs, and how much the system owner could generate from excess energy.
Through our HIT Energy Guard, we can also monitor performance 24/7, meaning if it ever drops again, even for a short time, we can fix it – this has saved some owners hundreds or even thousands of pounds a month.
Our work has been recognised with a string of accolades – at Lamma 2020, we scooped the online innovation award, while we also beat hundreds of other products to be ranked seventh in the Midlands Tech 50 list.
Simon added: “we want to make solar the green energy of choice for as many people as possible across the country.
“While we still have a long way to go before we reach everyone who can benefit from our services, making the EnviroTech 50 list shows we are on the right path and our innovations have an exciting future.”
