Nominations for the Solar Power Portal Awards 2017 are now open, and the UK’s solar installers will once again compete for the highly sought-after contractor of the year prize.

Always highly competitive with a long list of entries each year, is handed to businesses which have gone above and beyond in the clean energy space, acting in an exemplary fashion and completing their works to the highest possible standard.

Companies should nominate themselves, including details of completed works, testimonials from clients and customers, and a summary of what sets them apart from their competitors.

Last year’s winner

Last year saw Sungift Solar emerge victorious after the judging panel read a string of glowing reviews from customers. That was enough to see Sungift regain the crown it last won in 2014 following Solarsense’s victory in 2015.

This year nominations will remain open until midnight 31 May 2017 before a three-week judging process takes place.
