British Gas awards Rexel three year contract for solar PV

Published:  01 February, 2013

Rexel, a leader in the distribution of electrical supplies and solutions, has announced that it has been chosen to supply British Gas’ domestic and commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) business for the UK and Ireland.

Under the three year contract Rexel will provide the energy giant with an end-to-end solution that includes a logistics platform as well as all the necessary products: solar panels, inverters, meters, cable, isolators and roof brackets. The deal reinforces Rexel’s position in the UK as a leading supplier of energy solutions.

Rexel’s national network of 440 branches in the UK and Ireland means that the products for domestic jobs can be collected from a branch local to the house, while the products for commercial jobs such as office buildings or schools are sent directly from the national distribution network. Along with the robust supply chain that Rexel has built, this reduces unnecessary transport and enables British Gas to offer its customers a reliable service.
