Client Testimonials

I first became of Leisure Energy from a former colleague who recommended them having worked with them elsewhere. I approached them to survey one of our sites as preparation for a funding application to the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. The data and level of detail that they produced was instrumental in helping us be successful in the bid, which secured £2.6m to install a range of energy efficiency measures including Air Source Heat Pumps and solar at Darlaston Swimming & Fitness Centre. We then also procured Leisure Energy to deliver the installation project in full, and again we were not disappointed. It was a first project of its kind for Walsall Council and far more technical than any other that I had worked on previously, but Leisure Energy held our hand from start to finish. The communication and responsiveness of the whole team was fantastic, and the workmanship of all contractors to a high standard. Even now, post completion, I feel fully supported by Leisure Energy and have no doubts that they will assist with any issues which arise. Huge thanks goes to Neil, Ash, Holly and Mike, and I look forward to working with them again on future projects.

Stuart Webb, Group Manager for Leisure, Bereavement & Commercial Services, Walsall Council

“Leisure Energy have provided an excellent service in delivering the energy saving projects at Burntwood Leisure Centre. From the outset when assisting with the application for the Public Sector Decarbonisation Grant, throughout the development phase and during installation, they have worked professionally with the Council and our leisure partner, Freedom Leisure. Additionally, Leisure Energy staff and their installation team understand the demands of delivering projects within a live customer facing environment which enabled the facility to remain open during the installation.
