Adam joined Hero over 5 years ago and is one of our most senior staff members at the business, as he has been here from the start and seen the company rise up from installing renewable energy in just our local area to now covering the whole of the UK.
Over the years, Adam has installed domestic ground and air source heat pumps to large commercial solar panels but no matter the job, he likes to be hands on as he has completed more than 500 installations for the company.
Getting into the installation industry can be long, but Adam decided that once he finished school he would go straight to college and study electrical installations on a full time course. After completing the first year at Level 2, he was able to secure an apprenticeship with a local electrical company who also installed renewable products.
After working for them for 2 years, he was then offered the opportunity to work for Hero. Adam believed that it was a job role he couldn’t resist. He was very passionate to get start as he wanted to get into solely installing renewable technologies.
One of Adam’s first installation job’s was for a battery storage system, where he installed a 6.4kW Tesla Powerwall home battery with a SolarEdge DC storage interface and AC coupler.
This job gave Adam a lot of joy to install as the customer was a big environmentalist and already had a solar PV system on his home but wanted to store the excess energy and use it in his home at night.
“I already Had an instalation of Solar Panels when i came across an advert from Hero Renewables for instalation of a Back up Battery. This was just what I needed to store my excess energy which was going to waste. I was well looked after with the Administration and especially the Installation of the battery which needed to be linked to the existing Solar Panel System. I am now reaping the rewards of using the surplus energy for my own use. I would have no hesitation in recommending the company to other potential customers.” – Mr Sharp | Google Reviews

Which Is Your Favourite Renewable Product To Install And Why?
“Definitely battery storage, as I the enjoy setting up and commissioning aspect. It’s satisfying to get to the end of a PV and battery storage install and be able to show the customer on their monitoring portal where all the generated electricity is going.”
What Renewable Energy Product Are You Most Skilled Or Qualified To Install?
“I would say I am equally qualified to install all of the products that we supply, however I believe we install Mitsubishi Ecodan’s the most often so I would say I am most skilled in installing these.”
Which Was Your Most Memorable Job You Completed?
“I enjoyed an Air source heat pump install that we carried out on the Isle of Gigha, which is off the west coast of Scotland.”
“I liked this job the most as the property was located a stones throw away from the sea. It did take a while to get to the property but once we were there and the job was complete, it was all worth it as the customer was very happen and have since been generating renewable energy for their home.”
On your travels throughout the UK which was the best scenic route you have been on or through?
“Driving towards the west side of Scotland is always my favourite drive as there are beautiful views through the hills. It is so hard to resist not to stop on the way home after the job is complete and just witness the views.”
We at Hero can’t blame Adam for having a quick pit stop, just take a look at some of the images he snipped up on his way home from the heat pump project on the Isle of Gigha.
