Company description

Oxford Solar PV is a family owned company specialising in the design and installation of domestic and commercial Solar PV systems across Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas.

We take great pride in every project and each installation is attended personally by Jonny Wilson, one of the Directors of the company. We design each system to your specific requirements and budget. As an MCS registered company we install and commission each system to the highest of standards, enabling you to access payments from the 'Feed in Tariff' scheme. We assist all customers with Fit applications or RooFit paperwork, as well as their EPC requirements.

We do not use sales people but only qualified engineers who are passionate about what they do. Our staff are all fully employed and insured and we do not use sub-contracted installation teams.

We operate from our offices in Wheatley near Oxford where we have a fully functioning PV system available to be viewed and inspected by appointment. We are also a 'Which Local' recommended installer and members of the Renewable Energy Consumer Code. We are MCS approved with the NICEIC as well as being NICEIC Domestic Installers.
