EcolivingCSE only use the best technologies developed over many years by leading manufacturers and carefully selected installers of micro renewable energy systems.

After many years spent flying to far-flung corners of the planet doing business around the world, several years ago our Reading based Regional Director in Frank McElroy decided do make a radical change and indulge his passion for all things renewable. "I am convinced that the worldwide society needs to turn its considerable talent and energy to ending the ever increasing consumption of finite resources with no thought to the end game" says Frank "It is not beyond our wit to manage our planet the way we manage our bank accounts. We all make sure our spending is balanced by our income in our personal lives. Sustainable living at a societal level is just as important, in order to stop the planetary asset stripping"

"The part of my job I enjoy most is seeing the dawning of understanding on people's faces as I explain what is possible, what their options are and what the benefits are to them" continues Frank.
"So many people have commented to me how much they valued the free consultation service that we offer; how it has given them the confidence to invest in something that until then they had very little knowledge of."
