About us

Welcome to Spirit

Spirit About Us.jpg

Established in January 2010, Spirit Energy is based in Reading, Berkshire and installs renewable energy systems all over southern England and Wales (anywhere from Taunton up to Birmingham, and across to Norfolk and Kent). 

We have installed hundreds of residential solar PV systems, and an increasing number of battery storage systems. We have installed several MW of solar PV in the commercial arena, working on behalf of a diverse range of corporate clients, schools, universities, further education colleges, councils, housebuilders and contractors. Overall we have installed over 2000 systems.

Our website showcases some of our work including solar PV, LED lighting retrofits, battery storage, EV charging units. In addition we are frequently asked to carry out feasibility studies and portfolio analysis to look at the potential for solar PV and battery storage across a portfolio of properties.  We are also often asked for bespoke solutions, anything from a particularly challenging UPS system for an industrial site, to the installation of PV cladding for the side of an Oxford tower block. Increasingly, the requests are for off-grid systems and microgrids, both locally and in far flung locations across the globe.

Recent  installs include 634kWp of solar PV for Sparsholt and Andover College (the largest installation of solar PV for a UK educational institution),103kWp solar PV installed for Morgan Sindall on the Dolphin Retail Park in Salisbury, and 50kWp installed for Oxford City Council at its Horspath Depot, as well as many battery storage systems and commercial LED retrofits.

We are passionate about the potential of technology to improve the efficiency and sustainability of energy generation, transmission, storage and usage.  We are not salespeople, just engineers with a commitment to technical excellence and a belief that we can help to pioneer a more sustainable future.

We would be delighted to assist you in your project, whether residential or commercial, so please get in touch if you would like further information, or a quotation.
