Renewable technology provider Shawton Energy has welcomed two new members to its team, as it looks set to deliver more than £50million of invested capital in high-quality solar projects over the next five years.

Technical Manager Carl Peters and Administrator Michelle Young have joined the Newton-le-Willows firm, which has developed a significant number of solar, battery and renewable energy projects over the past two years.

Led by Director Jamie Shaw, Shawton Energy’s portfolio boasts a diverse range of successful solar installations, powering commercial and industrial properties up and down the country. These include Dakota Hotel Group, Dunham Forest Golf Course, Truck and Marine Cranes Ltd HQ in Staffordshire and BMW, including franchises in Lincoln and Wakefield.

“We have always strived to be at the forefront of the solar energy revolution. It’s incredibly gratifying to see our hard work and dedication pay off, enabling us to lead the way towards a greener and more sustainable future.”

With full responsibility for the technical side of the business, Carl will play a key role in meeting the company’s growth goals. Using his 20 years of mechanical and electrical engineering experience, he will be responsible for overseeing the technical aspects of Shawton Energy’s solar energy installations and ensuring that they are completed to the highest standards of quality and safety.

Michelle will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the company and ensuring that clients receive the highest level of service. With an HND in Graphic Design, she will work closely with the rest of the team to ensure that the company runs smoothly and that customers are kept informed of progress on projects.

Jamie added: “It’s great to welcome Carl and Michelle to our team as we continue our journey towards transforming the global energy landscape. Our people are the driving force behind our success, and their dedication is what sets us apart in the industry.”
