New jobs at Carlisle renewable energy firm
Last updated at 14:11, Friday, 23 November 2012
Seven jobs have been created at Global Heat Source, the Carlisle-based renewable energy firm.
The venture, which is only two years old, moved to bigger premises at Atlantic House, Parkhouse, earlier this month. It was previously at the adjoining Pacific House.
Its workforce has grown from four to 11 this year and more jobs are in the pipeline.
The company started life primarily as a wholesaler supplying solar photovoltaic, solar-thermal and heat-pump technology to public and private-sector projects and installers across the country. It is now installing solar products directly in Cumbria and southern Scotland.
Managing director James McLinden said: “We have built our market share through controlling every aspect of our supply chain through importing units and designing our own equipment.
“We are aiming to do the same with the local domestic and commercial solar market.
“Control, supply and installation and drive the market by competitive pricing and outstanding customer service.
“For example there’s still a perception that solar costs the earth.
“But Global is putting together packages such as a 4KW photovoltaic domestic system including survey, fitting and grid connection, with a starting price of less than £5,000.”
He added: “Lots of people got into solar and then just as quickly got out but we are in it for the long haul.”
