Solar PV consultancy

We are solar specialists


ChargeWorks specialises in making the most of your upcoming solar PV, energy storage and electric vehicle charging projects. We help landlords and occupiers reduce energy bills, save money, future-proof their buildings and work towards their net zero goals.

We smooth out the process by helping you make informed decisions which will be reflected in the total cost of ownership.

Our team of experts can handle the entire process on your behalf. We bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to each and every project. As independent and impartial advisors we focus on your needs and ambitions, ensuring you avoid common pitfalls and only spend money on what’s right and necessary for you.

Working with ChargeWorks ensures you have the right people in place to deliver your project. 

As independent consultants, we offer impartial advice and recommendations.  We can make introductions to local/regional/national installers as appropriate to obtain quotes prior to installation or handle the entire tender process. 

Once an installation is underway we can monitor the standard of work and highlight any issues.  

We can manage the whole process or help you wherever you need support.

    "I have been immensely impressed by the service offered by Tom and Tim at the pre-planning stages. The level of detail provided is very helpful from a strategic viewpoint, and greatly assists the designers to develop their schemes and demonstrate the energy/carbon obligations which is often heavily reliant on PV."

    "With extensive practical experience behind them, ChargeWorks offer a rare service in the form of bespoke, independent, and impartial consultancy on all things solar and clean energy. For us as architects, their value is in providing this expert advice quickly and affordably at an early stage to understand feasibility and optimisation, helping to keep our projects running smoothly."

    "Tim and Tom always went above and beyond, they made the project a great success in terms of quality design, specification and customer satisfaction. Without their involvement and commitment to the project it wouldn’t have come to fruition. I would highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking to invest in a quality solar PV system."

    “Tim and Tom provided excellent advice and modelling at the design stage for a number of our development sites. They have great knowledge and experience in solar PV and offered a high standard of support.”

    “The solar design and consultancy service we received from Tom and Tim helped us to fulfil our ambitions for solar PV on our award-winning scheme at Springfield Meadows. Working closely with our in-house architects and technical specialists, they came up with design solutions that maximised the space available, complied with roof loading constraints and maintained a great aesthetic.”

    Ian Pritchett
    Managing Director
    Greencore Construction

    “We have collaborated with ChargeWorks on several of our residential schemes when selecting PV systems and Electric Vehicle Chargers - they are quite simply our ‘go to’ consultants. Always competent, conscientious, and accessible when needed; they work to proactively address and anticipate design issues before problems occur, and they always have the client’s best interest in mind. It is for these reasons I would recommend ChargeWorks without hesitation”

    Colin Lehane
    Bee Green Consulting

    “The advice and support Tom at Chargeworks has provided to us on our journey in de-carbonising our energy usage has been excellent. We had a rather complex solar panel installation and Tom got alongside us on the project and was able to provide outstanding advice and guidance on all aspects of our solar requirements particularly with smaller details we would not have considered otherwise. Tom has excellent knowledge of solar PV systems and ethical procurement which is just what’s needed in the current climate”
