Why us? For more than 25 years we have helped shape the solar PV industry in the UK - Whilst we are not arrogant enough to say we are industry leaders, there has certainly been times when we have helped point the direction in which it was heading. For example, when there were no "off the shelf" roof-fixings for solar arrays, MD Chris Goodings had to invent them. It was reassuring that later the industry standard "dowel screw" followed similar designs. Also SEA started using water and salt resistant connectors borrowed from the sub-sea survey industry long before such things came into common use, setting standards long before they became industry "good practice". To the point, for the last 25 years Solar Energy Alliance is proud of keeping up with the latest developments in our industry, the aim being to provide our customers with the very best, most efficient, cost competitive products available.
Keeping it simple. Our MD comes from a wooden boatbuilding background and his first use of solar panels involved powering his home on a converted Danish trawler because he was fed up with running the engine for 5 hours to get a charge into the battery bank. This meant that initially he was strictly an end user, with this in mind he had to cut through any scientific jargon and understand it in simple terms and although today SEA employs electrical and electronic engineers, this ethos still pervades - we try to explain things in an understandable way - although if you want deeply technical, we can do that too.
No salesmen. We are a best practice company that does not use “sales tactics”; that's not our style, we just present the facts, give good advice, answer questions and leave people to make up their own minds.
