Award Winning Green Energy at Sheffield Assay Office

If you've visited us here at Sheffield Assay Office recently, you may have noticed we've had a bit of work done. We are delighted with our new solar panel installation from Custom Solar Ltd, meaning we can continue to be as green as possible.

It's also great to see that Custom Solar Ltd have won an award for their energy efficient work! For their installation here at Sheffield Assay Office, the Custom Solar team were commended for the 'Regional Small Scale Project of the Year' at the 2023 Yorkshire & Humberside Energy Efficiency Awards. A huge well done to all involved! 


Speaking about the solar panel installation and award win, our Assay Master Ashley Carson said; "Thank you and congratulations to the team! It was a first rate project and completed absolutely bang on time. I am delighted with the end result."
