A DONCASTER firm drafted in Labour leader and former energy secretary Ed Miliband to open its green energy showroom.

Family-owned business Green Energy Solutions UK Ltd held an official launch to mark the opening of its new state-of-the-art facility at Jupiter Business Park in Bentley.

The company, which specialises in the supply of alternative energy products including solar and photovoltaic panels and ground-source heat pumps, has seen its turnover increase three-fold since it began trading just three years ago.

It installs products in residential and commercial buildings, affordable housing schemes and other local authority projects in the UK.

Managing director Marcus Payne, a shareholder along with wife Sally, and father David, said: “Today marks a new generation of business development for us, and it’s very exciting.

“The company has largely grown through word of mouth, but the fact that we can now physically show people how alternative energy equipment works in order to heat their home or office and significantly reduce their energy bills means that we can really develop the business.”
