Renewable energy company Engenera Renewables Group has signed an agreement with Costco Wholesale to promote solar power as a means to reduce energy costs.
As part of the agreement, the two businesses will combine their expertise, meaning Costco – a global network of membership-only retail stores – will be able to make bespoke solar PV systems, sold with a full warranty, available to its members.
According to the companies, all systems will exclusively be designed and installed by Engenera Renewables, with each to feature fully calibrated high energy-yielding solar panels, a 5.4kW Huawei battery and a smart energy inverter.
Customers will also benefit from a Smart Home App that helps to track performance and clearly displays generation and consumption data. All systems will be installed by fully qualified engineers and then commissioned and tested by an electrical team to ensure it is Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) compliant.
“This partnership represents an exciting step for the business, but it is also a natural progression for us on the back of the way the company has developed in recent years. We now have the expertise and capacity to commit to a partnership on this scale and we could not think of a better company than Costco to be working with on this,” said Lloyd Lawson, chief strategy officer at Engenera Renewables Group.
“Underpinning this deal is a commitment from both companies to help people; rising energy costs are putting incredible strain on households. Embracing renewable energy offers a way of reducing bills and offering long-term energy security, while also doing the right thing for the planet in the context of global warming.”
Last year, Solar Power Portal reported that Engenera Renewables was eyeing a UK-wide expansion by hiring new key members of its team.
The expansion of the company’s team would allow it to broaden its impact in the energy and solar sector. The firm had been working to support a range of renewable technologies such as solar PV and battery storage, air and ground source heat pumps, combined heat and power, electric vehicle (EV) charging points and LED lighting.
