Research recently undertaken by renewable energy firm, Puragen, has revealed that electrical contractors are embracing the renewables revolution to future-proof their business.

Nearly a third (31%) have already moved into the renewables market in recognition that it’s the future for their career, and more than half (52%) are keen to look into the possibility with 29% considering expanding their offer as a means to grow their business.

Puragen’s Jeremy Malindine commented, “Venturing into renewables really is a fantastic opportunity for contractors who already have the basic skills and technical knowledge to understand solutions such as solar PV. There clearly is an appetite among businesses and homeowners to consider renewable solutions, so for contractors eager to become more forward thinking, by looking at partnerships, support networks and franchise opportunities that can support them in this aim, they are future-proofing their business.”
