Renewable energy operator Agrivert has expanded it’s offering to include solar photovoltaics (PV) and battery storage following the acquisition of Chiltern Solar Limited.
Chiltern Solar, founded in 2011, is an MCS-certified independently run business designing, supplying and installing solar PV, as well as battery storage and EV chargepoints, undertaking “well over 1,00 installations” in the past five years, according to the company.
Specialising in producing biomethane to generate renewable energy by engineering and operating anaerobic digestion facilities that treat food waste and agricultural wastes, the acquisition will allow Agrivert to extend its product offering to include solar PV, battery energy storage systems (BESS), and electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions to both domestic and commercial customers throughout the southeast of England.
Phil Earl, Agrivert’s chief executive called the acquisition an “important next step” for the group as it widens its customer base, offering a wider variety of renewable technologies to its customers.
“We have been very impressed with Chiltern Solar’s growth in recent years, their capability and expertise in solar PV and look forward to accelerating that as part of Agrivert,” said Earl.
Steve Gamston, Chiltern Solar’s co-founder added: “This strategic move opens doors to new resources, expertise and opportunities and will enable the business to extend its reach and increase its impact in the Solar PV marketplace.
“Our decision to sell Chiltern Solar was made with confidence in Agrivert’s commitment to upholding our values, their proven track record in the renewable energy sector, and their vision for continued growth and success.”
Following the acquisition a period of transition will take place as Agrivert integrates Chiltern Solar’s operations team and processes into the wider group.
