  • Waxman Energy Named Sustainable Energy Company of the Month

    Waxman Energy Named Sustainable Energy Company of the Month

    What a great month it's been for Waxman Energy so far!
    With our upcoming fully booked product training days and a fantastic turn out at Fully Charged Live in partnership with VARTA Storage, it was fantastic to hear we had won 'Company of the Month' in the Business & Industry Insider's 'Sustainability Today'.

    Read the full article below.


    Waxman Energy – Making it Easier and Cheaper for You to Switch to Solar Power

     Sustainability Today is delighted to have selected Waxman Energy as our Sustainable Energy Company of the Month. Waxman Energy - of the Waxman Group – is the one stop shop, supplying everything needed to turn a facility’s energy green.

     The Waxman Group was formed over 60 years ago and the company is still under the stable management of the Waxman family. It would be a slight understatement to say that a lot has changed in the energy industry since Waxman Energy were established. What has remained constant, however, is the company’s strong emphasis on supplying installers of PV (photovoltaic, or solar powered) energy systems with the widest range of the highest quality products possible and for the most competitive price.

    This is in no small part due to the workforce and work environment cultivated at Waxman Energy’s headquarters in West Yorkshire; the team are as dedicated as they are passionate about the products they provide and pride themselves on building and maintaining excellent, productive and efficient relationships with manufacturers and customers alike. Indeed, Waxman Energy has always strived so as not to be considered a faceless company, disconnected from their clients and partners. Well, thanks to the consistent first-class customer service and attention to detail practised by the team at Waxman Energy, they have acquired a reputation for nothing less than excellence.

    Supplying both to commercial and residential builds and projects, Waxman Energy is big enough to supply the largest of projects – their 40,000 ft² of warehouse facilities can hold huge amounts of stock, ensuring the delivery of a reliable and consistent service and supply of PV products – yet still pay the same amount of attention to smaller projects and builds.

    With solar energy being the fastest growing of energy technologies, there is no better time to utilise the excellent advancements made in the technology, and both make savings to energy bills and do your bit to offset your carbon footprint. Couple the advances in PV technology with the stark reduction in cost and there is little wonder why residential properties are embracing PV technologies.

    But it is not simply the residential market which has seen a steep increase in demand for PV technologies, with businesses more often expected to play their part in offsetting emissions and take a responsible stance with regards to their carbon footprint. Waxman Energy allows a wide range of business and organisations – be they schools, factories or office blocks – to implement changes in how they obtain energy by offering a fully comprehensive PV package.

    Stocking everything a contractor would need to install a PV energy system, Waxman Energy supply: solar PV modules, grid-tied inverters, PV power storage, mounting systems, PV kits, and PV accessories. Waxman Energy have gone a step further, however, investing in a purpose-built training and showcasing room  designed to teach installers how to correctly install PV systems while also training sales staff, giving them in-depth knowledge regarding their products – all with the aim of providing the customer a service second to none in quality and professionalism.

    Waxman Energy Stays Strong Despite Difficult Climate

    Whilst the UK solar market has been very challenging in recent years leading to solar PV companies closing left right and centre, Waxman Energy rides the wave - instead, opting to increase their product portfolio and expanding into the EV Market.

    Part of the Waxman Group, with over 50 years in the distribution industry, Waxman Energy have grown to become one of the UK’s largest distributors of solar PV modules, battery storage, and mounting solutions - offering their customers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for both residential and commercial solar installations. 

    In 2019 alone, Waxman has partnered with both Tigo and Myenergi, with the introduction of ‘Zappi’ - an eco-smart charge point manufactured in the UK. Their 40,000 sq. ft of warehouse space enables them to hold extensive stocks on site allowing for next day delivery on hundreds of items.  

    With a strong and growing team lead by Sam Waxman, Waxman Energy understands the challenges that lay ahead post FiT cuts and offer product training days combined with extensive technical support, giving installers an opportunity to adapt to the industry at its ever-increasing speed.

    Despite a difficult climate, Waxman Energy sees long-term potential in solar and looks to the future with partners such as Trina SolarTalesun and VARTA Storage as they push ahead within the PV, battery storage and EV charging markets.

  • Waxman Energy Celebrates Best Year Yet at Solar & Storage Live 2018

    Waxman Energy Celebrates Best Year Yet at Solar & Storage Live 2018

    What a show! With a bigger turn out than ever, 2018 was a great time to be exhibiting at Solar & Storage Live down at Birmingham’s NEC.

    This year saw us launch the Victron Multiplus 3000, Victron Quattro 3000 and Victron Color Control from our newest partnership with Victron Energy.

    Panels from AUO and Jinko also stole the show alongside big names such as SolaX, BYD & GoodWe who all had products on display.

    Returning to the Waxman stand for the second year was German-based battery storage leader VARTA Storage, with the compact energy storage system, the VARTA pulse. Global Sales Manager, Christopher Britzger, Sales Manager of Residential Energy Storage - Roman Jordan and Steve Saunders - UK Account Manager were on hand to discuss the future domestic battery storage and improvements to the technology.  

    A key area, 2019 is primed to be the ‘year of battery storage’ for Waxman Energy with a brand new Victron training rig already in the pipeline. This follows the already successful VARTA Storage and BYD & SolaX battery storage training days.

    Speaking of Waxman Energy’s commitment delivering expert advice on battery storage products, Technical & Business Development Manager, Ben Vinyard said:

    “It’s clear to see that battery storage is the future of British energy and I think it's going to be an exciting transition from needing a subsidy to promote solar to greener self-consuming technologies. Solar & Storage was an amazing event for us this year. The attendees were extremely high quality and all of them asking the right questions. ”

    This year's Solar & Storage was a great chance for our brand new Sales Manager's to meet and talk to current and prospective customers about their upcoming projects. Sales Manager for the North, Sarah Wallace and Southern Sales Manager, Huw Cooper,  joined Waxman Energy earlier this year alongside Ben Vinyard who took on the role as Technical and Business Manager.  The three major hires mark the growing success of Waxman Energy as the company goes from strength to strength.

    Managing Director, Sam Waxman said:

    Solar & Storage Live has always been a very successful show for us and this year was our biggest and best yet. A huge thank you to our sales team and everyone who made the show what it was and we’re looking forward to returning next year”

    Our team are already looking forward to what 2019 will bring!

  • Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Elland, UK: After a successful UK launch, the smart energy storage system - the VARTA pulse is now ready for shipment to the UK as part of an exclusivity agreement between German based VARTA Storage and Waxman Energy of Elland in West Yorkshire.

    After successful installations across five UK test sites, the first VARTA pulse was installed in a self-built project located in the Ulster countryside in Cumbria. Home to Bill and Sharon Tyrer, the project features a 6kw roof PV array and benefits from a south facing roof meaning that his chosen ‘VARTA pulse 6’ is often full by 10am. In the first 13 days of install alone, Bill and his wife had only purchased 17p from the grid.

    Speaking of the first VARTA Storage install, Bill Tyrer said:

    “The installation was straightforward and included intuitive software which allows me to take control of my energy usage by monitoring generation, feed in, self-consumption and grid consumption. Instantly after installation, I found that I increased my self-consumption and can see for 6 months of the year I can be grid independent, hence reducing my electricity expenditure"

    With over 130 years of battery expertise and significant investment into product development, VARTA Storage has always been one step ahead with an unparalleled desire to excel in safety, quality and reliability.  The VARTA pulse 3 & 6 is no exception and features an integrated multi-stage safety concept.

    As well as being safe, the VARTA pulse line is also smart, providing seamless integration with smart homes, e-mobility and data logging. Benefiting from an open system, users have total freedom and flexibility with the reassurance that the pulse will work with their existing products.

     

    Steve Saunders, Key Account Manager for VARTA Storage UK said,

    "It was great to meet Bill and his wife Sharon and to witness first-hand how they were using the pulse system to maximise their self-consumption from their own generated energy - leading to huge savings.

    Bill's company "Dalliam" were used for installation work during the UK testing phase with Bill being so impressed with the storage system, he purchased a pulse 6 on release day for his own self-build project - what a great seal of approval for pulse"

    Wall mountable and adjustable, the VARTA pulse is available in two capacity sizes; 3.3 kWh and 6.5 kWh and measures just 60 x 69 x 18.6 centimetres, making the unit perfectly suited to domestic environments where space is limited.

    Its compact size allows for a fast one-man install, setting it apart from its competitors. Coupled with a European support base and 10-year warranty, the pulse is the perfect choice for those who wish to generate, store and monitor their own energy with full control.

    The VARTA pulse is available for purchase by contacting Waxman Energy directly or online
