Why Beba?

BeBa Energy UK are on a mission to mitigate climate change by deploying as many solar PV systems as possible in the UK. We’re also on a mission to ensure that we get the absolute best out of the solar arrays that we install and maintain.

Set up over 10 years ago, BeBa’s pedigree comes from Germany – the home of solar PV. We took the experiences of the German market – a market that is around 10 years more advanced than that of the UK – and replicated them here.

As a result, not only do we have a solution to almost every application, we also know what challenges we might face in the future and how to build the systems to avoid them.

Since 2010 we have installed well over 500 systems and we currently manage and maintain over £147m of solar PV systems.
