Solar Installation at Lou’s Tyres Ltd


Flixborough Eco Technologies were approached by Lou’s Tyres to install Solar PV in 2015. We met Simon, Director of Lou’s Tyres, to discuss renewable energy and how it can help his business be more sustainable. Throughout the installation, Lou’s Tyres Ltd were informed of each ongoing process and once completed, were shown how to work everything from the inverter and it’s display to how to shut down the    system in an emergency.

Lou’s Tyres Ltd is a local family tyre suppler and fitting centre serving Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas for over 25 years; offering personal service and local knowledge along with an excellent range of tyre brands to suit all pockets and vehicles.

“I have and will continue to highly recommend Giles and his team with confidence.”

We carried out an energy audit to investigate what savings we could make for Lou’s Tyres. The decision to proceed with Solar PV was finalised and Flixborough Eco Technologies tailored a system to suit Lou’s Tyres needs perfectly. We worked with Lou’s Tyres throughout the installation, including the survey, design, installation, commissioning and handover pack. By investing in Solar PV, Lou’s Tyres have been able to cut their energy costs significantly. We have more recently worked with Simon to install Infra-Red Radiant Heating at Lou’s Tyres to cut energy costs again.

When Lou’s Tyres Limited carry out work to a customer’s vehicle, we always have their needs at the forefront of what we do. We like to explain what we are doing and the costs before we do anything to a customer’s vehicle.

When we decided at Lou’s Tyres Ltd that we wanted to save the planet and have Solar Panels fitted, we asked Giles and Stuart to come and explain the benefits and savings to us.  We were very impressed with their knowledge and the prices of the panels was very competitive also.  We proceeded with having the Solar Panels fitted by Flixborough Eco Technologies Limited.

The contractors that Giles used were very polite, efficient and are a good advert to Flixborough Eco Technologies.  I have and will continue to highly recommend Giles and his team with confidence.  We are looking forward to our first feed in tariff payment.  Many Thanks.
