About Us

Who Are We?

As consumers ourselves we always like to know who we’re dealing with and where they’ve come from so here’s a little background information about us.

Electrical Work In Cumbria

Lawrence & Suzanne at Segedunem after linking Hadrian’s Wall with Electric Car charging Points in August 2013

Since Lawrence was a kid (more years ago than anyone cares to own up to!!) he’s been one of those people who takes presents to bits as soon as you give them to him to see how it’s been made up.  He’s always been practical and has got a creative approach to problem solving.

Over the years, he’s fitted carpets, driven HGVs, managed HGV and Insulation teams and finally completely retrained as an electrician fitting solar panels and electric car charging points in addition to domestic electrical work.

Our core work now is domestic electrical work and if you need extra sockets installed, electric tests completed, consumer units changed over or new lights added then Lawrence is your man.

Suzanne worked for British Gas for years, followed by Carlisle City Council running the Energy Efficiency Advice Centre and finally with Lawrence set up Solway Renewable Energy Ltd

She looks after all of the admin, marketing, invoicing, ordering and customer care.  She tries and fails to manage Lawrence but somehow everything gels together and customers just love our family business.


Why are we different?

You always deal with us – the owners, never a sales person.  We can’t “pass the buck” if something goes wrong, there’s no-one to “pass the buck to”.  because you are the centre of our business. 

Yes, it sounds a bit cheesy – but it’s the truth.  If you’re happy we’re happy and if you’re happy you tell your friends.  It’s a pretty simple philosophy we work to and it seems to work well.

Of course we’re registered with NICEIC, so you know that our work is safe and regulated and when work we’ve carried out requires a Building Notice then we sort that out for you too.
