Customer Feedback

We asked HMK’s Operations Manager (Steve Hardy) a selection of questions to provide additional background on HMK’s goals and feedback regarding the Solar PV system and its installation.

What factors were involved in your decision to install Solar?

The ability to produce clean energy from a sustainable source coupled with the financial ROI. The installation of the solar system will form a key factor in HMK’s application to obtain ISO14001 (Environmental Management System).

How did you find the service you received from Genfit?

GenFIT proved to be a knowledgeable partner who undertook the work in a professional manner.

Would you recommend a solar project to other businesses, if so why?

Yes, solar power generation offers a clean source of power generation that, once installed, offers superb benefits for the business – both in terms of onsite generated power and the financial payback.

How does it feel to see the project completed?

Excellent, it is very satisfying see the solar system operating at full capacity.

What did you think of the speed of installation (from planning to installation)?

The whole service was efficient from the planning phase through to installation and ultimately commissioning and testing
