Chorley-headquartered Centreco is a specialist provider of commercial solar panel systems to firms across the UK. 

The company, which has 85 staff, has grown rapidly in the past decade, making “significant” gains in the commercial rooftop sector.   

It is the first specialist commercial solar provider to join Certas’ renewable energy solutions and services portfolio.  

Centreco will play an integral role in Certas’ renewables offering, providing a complete turnkey solution, to help businesses with their energy transition.   

It follows the acquisition of Hafod Renewable Energy, and the purchase of Freedom Heat Pumps. 

“This acquisition represents a major milestone for both Certas Energy and Centreco,” said Steve Little, MD of Certas Energy. “As demand for self-generated solar energy systems continues to grow, powered by energy security concerns, electricity cost mitigation, and environmental legislation, Certas Energy and Centreco will be perfectly poised to meet this need.  

“We are delighted to welcome the Centreco team on board and have no doubt that their technical skills, business development and operational capabilities will further enhance our expanding range of renewable solutions and elevate Certas Energy’s position as the energy partner of choice.”
