The company works in both the domestic and commercial markets where its bespoke packages, high quality service and competitive pricing has earned it a 5 star, 100% customer satisfaction rating ( ) since being founded in 2011.

The company recently scooped the ‘Low Carbon, Corporate Responsibility & Environment’ Award at the prestigious 2014 North East Business Awards and is set to go from strength to strength with plans to penetrate new markets - including renewable heat and anaerobic digestion - as well as  building a 1 megawatt Solar PV Park located in the North East. 

However, Mark Dunville, Technical Director of ARP believes there is still some work to be done in simply educating people on the benefits of Solar PV.  He said; “Regardless of whether you’re a business owner or a home-owner, people like to make savings and the benefits of installing Solar PV at your home, office, school or factory extends well beyond reducing your carbon footprint.

“Not only are energy bills slashed by up to 50% but you are also paid by your energy provider for the electricity generated, whether it’s used or not.  

“People don’t realise that Solar still gives you a return on investment of between 9-15%, which is more than any cash ISA on the market.

“We work in a constantly evolving sector which can be quite confusing to the layman.  As a market leader we’ll be looking to host a number of events aimed at informing people of the economic and environmental benefits of Solar PV.”

ARP is headquartered at state of the art eco-business centre, One Trinity Green, South Shields.  To find out more about their services contact one of ARP’s energy experts on 0191 481 3316 or visit
