Founded in 1998 by Jeremy Leggett, 63, and run by chief executive Frans van den Heuvel, 53, this business operates in nine countries developing and building solar projects including residential and commercial roofs, and ground-mounted solar farms. Subsidy cuts hit UK turnover in 2016, but the completion of Holland’s largest solar photovoltaic farm and projects in Latin America and Africa boosted overseas sales to £22.6m.
