I was very happy to be asked by Storm, one of the 2 principals (the other being Charlie) to write a review of our recent solar panels and accompanying battery installation by them. I have been successfully self employed myself over 50 years and know a thing or two about knowing when you are dealing with a top class firm and these two professionals are without a shadow of a doubt, a top class firm. We knew absolutely nothing about solar only a few weeks ago, and these guys have guided us, advised us and crucially installed a fantastic system at a very fair price. If our experience is anything to go by, look no further than Storm and Charlie at Glo Renewables

I am starting this review with the fact that I would have no hesitation in recommending Glo Renewables. I already have solar panels and didn't know whether to add a battery or not. I was given very helpful information. There was no pressure in making a decision, and they didn't mind my questions. They helped me chose a battery that fitted my needs. The site was visited so that a suitable position for the battery that suited me was found. The installation is very neat and tidy. I have been visited to help me understand some of the technical side in relation to the app. and tariffs available with my energy supplier. They offer on going support. Glo Renewables to me appear a very happy, enthusiastic Team who care about what you want and how they and their work comes across.

I contacted Glo Renewables to help me with an installation that hadn't been completed properly. They have done a wonderful job of bringing it up to standard and providing me with all the certification I need. They are very professional, thorough and friendly - my whole experience has been so warm and positive - cannot recommend them highly enough!! Thank you again Storm and Charlie for doing such a brilliant job!

The knowledge, service and attention to detail provided by Storm, Charlie and George before, during and after the solar and battery installation was first class. Their support in designing the system and suggestions given made the whole process stress-free. They all went above and beyond to ensure we were more than pleased with the end result.I would whole heartedly recommend Glo Renewables.Thank you.

We were recommended Glo by a good friend. Our property is over 100 years old and although it's been rewired in the past it wasn't up to modern day standards. We now are glad to recommended Charlie and Storm for a fantastic job done here in Paignton. Very professional job and work is second to none.. thanks guys 5*

As someone who has been wanting solar PV for a long time and been in the industry for around 10 yrs, I was very pleased to find Glo Renewables. Their knowledge and customer service was excellent throughout our 6.8 kWp solar PV and smart charger installation. And their pricing was very competitive. I would thoroughly recommend them as an installer and I have already suggested to members of my family.

I've had a great experience with Storm and Charlie from the outset. In our initial discussions, Storm showed great enthusiasm and a deep knowledge of and passion for his field, which was the factor that decided me in favour of Glo over similarly-priced competitors. Subsequent meetings strengthened this feeling, and the whole process went quickly and smoothly. Several times Storm went out of his way (and out of pocket) on his own initiative to ensure the system worked as well as possible, and when I noticed the output was lower than predicted after a few days, Storm didn't hesitate to look for possible reasons and solutions. A few years ago I had a similar situation with a PV system consistently underperforming over several weeks after install, and the installer grumpily told me to wait at least a year before coming to any conclusions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glo to anyone who's thinking of installing or upgrading PV, home storage or EV charging.

Decided to add Battery Storage to our existing Solar PV System. Approached several companies for help and advice. Glo Renewables stood out from Day 1 with their friendly, helpful approach and knowledge. Had lower quotes from elsewhere though decided to go with Storm, Charlie and the Team at Glo because of the way they helped and advised over the phone and in person.Installation Day went without a hitch and the area in our garage was tidier, cleaner after the install than before. Battery System in operation for a week now and gaining more understanding of how it all works daily with ongoing support from Storm & Charlie by phone. Nothing is too much for them.I have no hesitation in highly recommending Glo Renewables, Totnes, Devon.

In October, Glo Renewables took over TRESOC’s maintenance contract. They quickly identified and fixed problems that have plagued one of our large systems for years, and it is now running better than ever. Storm and Charlie are both fully qualified electricians, which is why I think they are so good. They have gone above and beyond what has been required of them in our dealings with them so far, and have demonstrated great interpersonal skills. I can’t fault their service and would happily recommend them.

Storm and Charlie did a great job at our property. They listened to our requests whilst offering great advice that has increased the overall efficiency of our system, the work was completed to a really high standard. The site was left tidy and they even helped to fix a few other issues with the building outside the scope of the electrical work

Storm and his team were professional, friendly and went above and beyond for us from the moment they came to give us a quote to the day they finished the work. The installation was carried out impeccably and they really took the time to make that we understand how to maximise our solar panel usage. I would highly recommend Glo Renewables to anyone thinking about switching to solar panels.

Out of the several solar companies I approached for quotes, these guys were the only ones who really looked at my requirements and came up with a system to fully meet my needs. Being electric only with high usage and huge bills, even with an existing solar system, the design was not going to be simple.Good communication throughout the design & install and great after-sales service & support. They may not have been the cheapest quote, but they were the only company to deliver a package that perfectly matched my needs.Very happy with my system, three months since install now, and have saved well over £1000 in electricity bills over the last 3 months compared to the same period in 2022.Would totally recommend Glo Renewables.

The installer was helpful and supportive before, during and after the installation. Each member of staff involved with the project was equally helpful. All questions by e-mail was answered swiftly and courteously. They dealt with the National Grid on my behalf and supplied documents quickly as the National grid process would allow. When any problem or issue was raised by phone or e-mail their response was supportive and this gave us a confident assurance that we were dealing with installers of a high calibre. The installation was achieved in just over a day and all connections were as we wished and to a highly professional standard as confirmed by a builder and electrician friend.

Having tried pretty much all the local options and found them seriously unable to communicate properly or even give a sensible quotation (sound familiar yet?) I came across Storm and Charlie who were a breath of fresh air. Attentive, good communicators, excellent sensitive installation and superb after service. Can't recommend highly enough.

Absolutely Thrilled with Solar Panel Installation!I recently had the pleasure of having solar panels installed on my home, and I cannot express enough how delighted I am with the entire experience.What really blew me away was the attention to detail from the team. The whole system looks fantastic, and it's clear they care about both quality and sustainability.I must mention Charlie too, who is a credit to the business! What a pleasant chap, extremely knowledgeable and his attention to detail (along with the rest of the team in-fact) was second to none.In a nutshell, this solar panel installation service was a win-win. If you're thinking about going solar, these guys are the way to go. I couldn't be happier.Thank you Glo Renewables, I feel confident I have made the right choice for both my home and the environment!

Storm and Charlie have provided an excellent service in providing and installing solar panels, a battery and an EV charger. They explained our options clearly and suggested appropriate solutions for our particular requirements. Their installation was efficient and on-time and they were always cheerful, informative and responsive to our needs. There were teething problems with the equipment but they responded rapidly, kept us fully informed of developments, and ultimately found the necessary solutions. I would strongly recommend Glo Renewables for the installation of solar panel and EV charger systems.

We wanted to add significantly to our existing 16 panel solar installation. Extra panels (19), battery and compatible EV charger were on our shopping listGloRenewables provided excellent support, service, value and advice from our initial enquiry, through the necessary approvals to a smooth installation and commissioning. The guys have been an absolute pleasure to work with and to have in our home. No issue has been too small for them to consider and their after sales commitment has, so far, been equally impressive. We would have no qualms in highly recommending Storm and Charlie - GloRenewables - to anyone contemplating either a new solar implementation or additions to existing.They are definitely a 5* supplier!

Glo fitted a 6Kw array, inverter and a 9.5Kw battery. We are WSW facing and the performance of the system has been superb.We live in a Victorian property with a fragile slate tile roof and were keen to work with a smaller more agile firm that could adapt their approach during the works if needed. We believed a large commercial firm would be less likely to give the job the attention it required.We benchmarked the quote from Glo with local and national fitters and found it to be competitive. The professionalism and customer centricity of Glo really stood them apart.The team at Glo have a great relationship with their scaffolders who in turn were very considerate when installing to avoid damaging our ancient Wisteria! Plant pots were carefully moved, benches relocated and the whole site left tidy.The quality of the work from the Glo team was excellent with close attention to detail, taking extra time to make an incredibly neat and compact install, repairing tiles where possible, replacing where necessary. The supply cable was expertly hidden behind drain pipes etc to be essentially invisible. The inverter and battery install was well thought out for future servicing. Very impressive.The post install support has been proactive and Glo have patiently supported me through the process of seeking approval for SEG payments.Overall I would highly recommend Glo for similar projects.

After having Glo install our solar panels, I'm very happy to highly recommend them. I found them to be very hard-working, punctual, pleasant and very knowledgeable about all aspects of the installation. Their attention to detail, such as adding a fire-board behind the battery, and using non-melting clips to keep power cables in place, was very impressive.It was a pleasure to have them around for a few days and I'm delighted with the end result. It feels like we are definitely in safe hands!
