Why Sundog?

Leading the Renewable Revolution

Sundog has been leading the solar revolution since 1995 and we have installed tens of thousands of solar PV panels across the UK - from Village Halls to Railway Stations and from Cumbrian Cottages to the London 2012 Olympic site.

We are passionate about solar and renewable energy and are proud of our heritage.   Experience counts - we have been leading the nrenewable revolution for 20 years - we would love to work with you.  Call us to discuss your project.

20 years experience


Quality control is at the heart of Sundog Energy's operations, determining what we do, how we do it and how we ensure that we are meeting our own exacting standards. But don’t just take our word for it. Sundog’s quality procedures have been independently assessed under the Government’s MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme).

Customer care

Sundog aims to have the best record of customer care in the renewable energy marketplace. We abide by the RECC consumer code and are committed to providing the highest standards of service to all our customers at all times.

Setting Standards

Martin Cotterell, founder and Managing Director of Sundog Energy, has been a major driver of the UK photovoltaics industry since 1995 and he maintains control over all the technical and installation standards for the company.  He is the author of many industry standards on the design and installation of solar PV and wind energy systems and is an active participant on several industry committees, including bodies advising DECC and MCS.   He currently chairs the British Standards committee that deals with PV and he represents the UK on the International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) that sets PV installation standards.

Delivering On Our Promises

We are committed to delivering what we promise. For example, we ensure that the output predicted for our systems is realistic and calculated using industry recognised procedures.  We ensure that our systems perform as predicted by doing thorough, documented commissioning tests before handover.  And we ensure that the delivery and installation dates we offer are achievable, then we make sure we stick to them.

Attention to Detail and Aesthetics

We strive to focus on the look of an installation as well as the function, from the layout of the PV array down to cable alignment.  

Health and Safety

Sundog Energy has an excellent health and safety record. The health and safety of the people working for Sundog Energy together with that of any visitors to installation sites or any other people in the vicinity is the foremost priority during site work.


Sundog Energy’s key motivation is to stimulate positive action to tackle climate change. So we do our utmost to minimise our own impact on the environment. 


Sundog Energy is actively involved in awareness raising work on a range of energy related issues. This has included the creation of Our Planet [link to], the multimedia education resource for schools, and ongoing work on industry standards.
