Project Better Energy is a leading independent clean technology and heating solutions provider based in Burton upon Trent. At the forefront of green innovation, Project Better Energy is focused on delivering renewable energy solutions to help their customers reduce their environmental impact, as well as their energy bills.

Since it was founded in 2011, Project Better Energy has become one of the leading providers of green solutions to the residential, commercial and public sectors, selling and installing nearly 40,000 solar energy systems and approximately 80,000 electric vehicle chargers through its divisions.
