About Us

Your Solar Energy is a family business, and from humble beginnings we have grown out to offer our incredible service from as far as 50 miles from our home in West Yorkshire. 

Formed in 2023 by James Edwards, we have been busy right from the start as we have partnered with Yorkshire Choice Homes to get bags of experience under our belt from day one.

Our Founder

In 2023, we were founded by James Edwards. A fully accredited member of the NICIEC and City & Guilds. James has spent over 12 years building experience of electrical engineering across the globe. Yorkshire born and bred, James spent his 20’s in Australia and New Zealand working as an electrician. 

Since 2018, James has been managing his own electrician firm JDE Electrical Services Limited.

In his spare time James likes to see the world, and experience new things. Most recently James trekked the fjords of Norway, but on a normal week you’ll find James at the golf club trying to improve his handicap!

What Do We Stand For?

Value

We're Yorkshire through and through, and if there's one thing we Yorkshire folk know is a good deal when we see one. Solar panels shouldn't cost the Earth, we price our installations to encourage a greener world.

Eco

We have a responsibility in this life to look after our planet for future generations. Solar panels are the key to protecting our climate and avoiding further harmful emissions.

Quality

It starts with the quality of our solar panels, to our customer service during your installation and the aftercare and maintenance. We pride ourselves on a job done well, and happy customers.
