FlexiSolar, the innovative solar carport specialist based near Cambridge, is delighted to announce it has a new Managing Director, Keenan Gratrick.
A promotion within the company, Keenan joined FlexiSolar as Operations Director last year to lead the delivery team, which has expanded rapidly over the last two months due to the high level of projects already awarded to FlexiSolar this year. Projects include the recently announced construction of what is set to be the UK’s largest solar carport system for Bentley Motors’ manufacturing headquarters in Crewe, Cheshire.
As well as being a seasoned electrical engineer, Keenan brings over 10 years’ experience specialising in the renewable energy sector; overseeing the installation of circa 800 MW of Solar PV. In his career, Keenan has been responsible for setting up commercial operations and solar park maintenance departments using market leading renewable technologies across the UK and overseas.
Keenan Gratrick commented: “It is with great pleasure that I have accepted the role of Managing Director at FlexiSolar. It is an exciting time for the company, we are focused on 3 key areas; Solar Carports, EV Chargers and Battery Storage, and are about to launch our own EV Chargers to market shortly. FlexiSolar has a brilliant team, with in-house design and installation capability, we have a great pipeline of projects lined up delivering in these 3 key areas. Our team of installers are currently onsite at Bentley, with the carport installation due to be complete in September. The company is really expanding and I am looking forward to help drive it forward.”
Keenan is supported by an expert team, who together, have over 100 years’ experience of working in the solar industry and the wider renewables sector.
FlexiSolar’s vision is to integrate three core technologies to reduce customers costs and to help decarbonise energy generation and transport.
