A renewable energy centre has opened in Preston city centre.

Energy company BGreenn is behind the initiative, which is aimed at informing households and businesses about the benefits of adopting solar energy and other renewable heating systems.

This firm says the concept, brought to life under the leadership of CEO Junaid Patel, will revolutionise how people perceive and utilise renewable energy.

Located at 3 Fox Street, the BGreenn Renewable Energy Centre offers immediate quotations based on a desktop survey of property rooftops and locations. Comprehensive analysis of solar generation and income forecasts will help clients make informed decisions.

Full-scale rooftop models provide insight into how a system could transform a home, while detailed storyboard panels serve as a roadmap through the installation process.

Bgreenn’s mission to revolutionise renewable energy adoption will include working with the community, for instance by inviting local schools to visit the centre.

The centre’s launch event was attended by local like-minded businesses and individuals, including Councillor Matthew Brown, Leader of Preston City Council. The Mayor of Preston, Councillor Yakub Patel, officiated.

Councillor Patel said: “We applaud BGreenn for their vision in launching the BGreenn Renewable Energy Centre. This pioneering initiative aligns perfectly with our city’s commitment to sustainability and innovation.

“By providing knowledge and resources to empower our community with renewable energy solutions, BGreenn is leading the way towards a greener and more sustainable future for Preston and beyond.”

BGreenn plans to open a second Renewable Energy Centre in Blackburn in early 2024.

CEO Junaid Patel said: “We are excited to introduce the BGreenn Renewable Energy Centre, an initiative that will transform the way individuals and businesses perceive and harness renewable energy.

“This visionary concept reflects our commitment to enlighten and empower consumers, offering them the knowledge and tools to make informed decisions about their energy future.”
