Select solar was established in 2001 and was purchased by Evren Omer and Colin Howe during 2012. The previous owners were successful with building sales distribution outlets through three websites select solar
, select solar gadgets
and the solar trader
. They built up a large number of traders who sell our products and a wide network of clients.
Colin and Evren have been friends since their teenage years and have a diverse range of knowledge with over 60 years of experience between them.
Evren’s background is in retail marketing, management and administrative accountancy which have proved useful tools to ensure the profitability of the business.
Colin started off in finance and later followed an engineering path becoming a fully qualified electrician and later on a solar engineer. A few years back we got together to discuss issues with climate change and rising fuel bills. We tried to assess the situation from the public’s point of view and decided that we wanted to do something that would make a difference.
At the point of purchasing Select Solar
we established a new business model and philosophy. We have now built up a reputation and become a market leader in the Off-grid solar industry by using the technical knowledge and expertise and more importantly being able to communicate this to our customers.
