- MBE Energy is a local solar pv installation company focussing on domestic and commercial installations in and around a 25 mile radius of Garstang, Lancashire. The family business began trading in 2010 following the roll out of the feed in tariff. Since starting the company I have installed thousands of pv panels on domestic properties and commercial/farm sites. I have never employed sales people in the business having relied entirely on word of mouth and customer referrals. An increasing part of the business is the installation of battery storage systems to enable the full potential of pv to be realised. In 2019 I also became accredited to install electric vehicle charging points.
