AES Solar has been named the best in Scotland after winning PV installer and contractor of the year at the Energy Efficiency Awards in Glasgow.

The Forres-based company is the longest established solar company in Europe, has now proven it is also the best in the country after winning the award in Glasgow on Friday, June 7.

AES Solar also received a commendation recognising the designated AES Solar helpline offering free advice in light of recent solar scams.

The company, which has been trading for 40 years, also won a regional award two months ago.

This recognised AES Solar for its work on a remote property in the West Highlands, featured on Channel Four’s Grand Designs in 2018.

George Goudsmit, managing director, said: "We strive to be the best in the business, and these accolades show that those efforts have paid off. We were up against tough competition, and to win this award makes us proud to have built a team that truly is the best.

"This is the icing on the cake for our anniversary year. Three awards in the space of two months is good news for our customers too. They can be confident that from beginning to end they are dealing with a professional, industry-leading company, whether they are a single domestic user or a large housing developer."

AES Solar is the only manufacturer of solar thermal panels in Scotland, employing 15 people at their head office in Forres with a recently opened Edinburgh branch to meet the growing central belt demand.

Technical director Campbell MacLennan added: "These awards are a fitting recognition, and a reward for always striving towards the highest quality of products and workmanship.

"We really are the solar specialists and wouldn’t be where we are today without the dedication and expertise of our excellent team."
