Customer Comments

“BeBa Energy UK came up with a well thought-out proposal for a 250kW solar system, which was the optimum size to allow the business to get maximum benefit from the Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs),” said Bill. “They did an excellent job of installing and commissioning the system, which is already performing well and is likely to pay for itself in around six years.”
