The Contact Group was established with the birth of Contact Packaging Ltd. Since then, the group has continuously progressed and extended its products and services. To lead by example, Contact Renewables & Solar Ltd, the renewable energy arm of the group, designed and installed a modest 50kW solar array for Contact Packagings warehouse facility in Preston.
We are proud to extend an open invitation to anyone who may be curious about our foray into renewable energy. You are welcome to visit our facility in Preston to experience first-hand how our state-of-the-art 50kW solar array operates. Witness the meter that barely moves now as the solar generation powers an entire warehouse inclusive of office space and industrial printing machinery. It’s an enlightening demonstration of how we are offsetting our own bills while advancing toward a more sustainable future. Your visit will be a testament to our commitment to progress and the benefits of leaning into renewable energy sources.

Trading for an impressive 43 years, the Contact brand has built a legacy of reliability and innovation. The journey began in 1980 with Contact Packaging Ltd, and the company has continued to evolve, incorporating diverse sectors such as property, and luxury outdoor living. A key milestone in this evolution has been the establishment of Contact Renewables and Solar Ltd. This arm of the group is dedicated to making renewable energy technologies accessible and affordable for everyone. Recognising the economic and environmental benefits of renewable energy, Contact Renewables and Solar Ltd provide a cost-effective route for both businesses and residential clients to have solar installations incorporated into their properties. This allows clients to not only reduce their carbon footprint but also save money in the long run, making the choice to go solar a win-win situation.

At Contact Renewables, we have the privilege of offering you the finest selection of modules, inverters, and batteries at the most competitive prices possible. Our access to top-tier brands in the renewable energy space ensures quality and lasting durability. With us, you get more than just a product – you get a comprehensive service that includes the design & installation of your solar array. We are transforming the industry’s traditional approach. We eliminate the need for middlemen; we have no pushy salesmen, and we table transparent and easy-to-understand proposals. We stock, and install all the equipment required, maintaining the highest standards of workmanship that the Contact brand has been known for, over the past four decades. Our promise to you is longevity; in another 43 years, we will still be here, offering unwavering support and services to help you stay ahead of the escalating energy crisis. We are not just a company, but a partner committed to your financial and environmental sustainability.

Alongside our corporate projects, Contact Renewables has been successful in bringing the benefits of solar energy to many residential clients around the northwest. We have equipped numerous homes with domestic solar arrays, significantly reducing their running costs and increasing their financial stability. The positive effects of these installations are twofold – while residents enjoy lower utility bills, the environment benefits from a decrease in carbon emissions.
Moreover, Contact Renewables has been a trusted partner to many of Contact Packaging’s clients, aiding them in their switch to renewable energy. We’ve installed solar arrays ranging from 20kW to a robust 600kW, each one tailored to the client’s specific needs. The impact of these installations has been profound. The generated solar power has significantly reduced energy bills for these businesses, bringing about financial stability in an unpredictable market.

However, perhaps more importantly, we’ve been able to help these businesses reduce their carbon footprint. The less energy imported from the national grid, the lower the carbon emissions, leading to a healthier environment. This isn’t just about good PR – it’s an essential step towards a sustainable future for the generations to come. Contact Renewables are committed to creating a legacy of sustainability, not just for us, but for our children and their children after them.
Our mission to propel businesses and homes into a sustainable future doesn’t stop at solar energy. We’re proud to bring our clients a broad range of energy solutions to further increase efficiency and savings. We’ve added EV chargers to our portfolio, catering to both domestic and commercial clients, and supporting the growing shift towards electric vehicles. Our automation services optimise energy use for maximum efficiency. Furthermore, we offer LED lighting solutions that significantly reduce energy demand, allowing your solar generation to extend even further.

What makes us stand out in the industry is our comprehensive approach to energy solutions and our relentless dedication to delivering exceptional workmanship. As a part of the Contact Group, a specialist working with some of the UK’s largest businesses, we pride ourselves on being a B2B specialist.
But our services don’t stop there. We understand that every pound matters when running a business; that’s why we offer energy procurement services to further reduce overhead costs. And it gets better – we can set up an export tariff for you, so any excess solar generation becomes an automated revenue stream, offering an even better return on investment. Our goal is not just to help you save money and reduce carbon emissions, it’s to make your transition to renewable energy as profitable and effortless as possible.
