In 2006, Founder and Managing Director Paul Hutchens was down in the dumps! He had sold his previous business which distributed car parts – not for very much – and was trying to figure out what to do next. He considered going back to “corporate life” selling IT solutions to global businesses but his heart was not in it and this reflected in the fact that he did not get offered any positions.
He looked at numerous options and did some ad hoc consulting work to make ends meet but then a conversation with a friend changed everything! They were mulling over possible ideas for future opportunities. They had already considered property investing (good job that did not materialise before the global recession and credit crunch) and various distribution options. Paul’s friend, Gil, then asked Paul what he actually cared about. Paul reeled off a few things including his family, child welfare and the environment. Gil then asked “what about alternative energy that does not create pollution”?
That question set Paul off on a path of research to look at how he could create a business that made money and contributed towards saving the earth from climate change. His research found that solar technologies that had been around for decades were starting to become economically viable for homeowners and owners of commercial buildings.
As a result, Paul established Eco2Solar in 2007 to address the threat of climate change, by reducing CO2 emissions and fuel shortages through the application of solar energy. Since then, we have added a number of other products and services; particularly a full electrical package for new build housing.
After 13 years in business, Eco2Solar is still a family run Midlands based company providing professional, cost-effective solar panel, EV charging and battery storage installations that significantly reduce the installation costs of the necessary sustainable measures for construction companies to meet their targets; particularly house builders and developers such as Barratts, Persimmon and Lovells.
Eco2Solar has grown rapidly since 2007, expanding to become a significant Worcestershire based employer in the last 12 years.
