SOLID ELECTRICAL'S BLOG

MAY 2022


Solid Electrical has had an industrious start to May, with advertising in local community magazines, and a large amount of repeat custom from our loyal clients.


This has led to some fantastic reviews on Trustpilot, for which we are very grateful. If you require electrical services, why not glance over our Solid reviews here:


Solar PV has produced a flurry of activity for Solid Electrical recently, due partly to the rising costs of energy, and our Microgeneration Certificate (MCS) with the regulatory body the NICEIC.


Considering having a system installed at your home or work place? Why not contact us for more information.


Continuing on from last month, the Solid Electrical Apprentice Scheme has proved somewhat of a hit with electricians. It has not only introduced new energy to the trade, it has also allowed two apprentices a vital step forward in their chosen career, whilst being shown the ropes by seasoned electricians.


MARCH 2022


First Day of Spring!



March is always a busy time for Solid Electrical, and this was no exception.  Lots of our clients use the start of spring and the clocks going forward, to organise outside electric works in preparation for easter and of course the coming summer months.


We have also played our part with house renovations and extensions, large and small.  Often work is put off over the winter months and planned for the onset of better weather, so the Solid Electrical team has seen a rise in the number of quotations too.


Also proving popular currently is Smart home technology, lighting, automation and security.  With the wealth of experience our team has with these installations, why not contact us to discuss your ideas and plans? Let Solid put a Spring in your step!

Happy New Year!


A warm welcome to 2022.  It is certainly a warm start to the year with record temperatures across the UK and Europe.


Solid Electrical has hit the ground running already, with many interesting jobs thanks to our loyal customers.  We have worked on solutions for Ring doorbells, repairing heating and ventilation systems, installation of external lighting, and electric vehicle charging points to name but a few.


Our charity support continues this year, we have supported the Fox Project, Cancer Research UK, alongside our ongoing sponsorship of six animals at Foal Farm.

APRIL 2022


Happy Easter from Solid Electrical!  🐣


Everyone loves April, the daffodils are out in bloom, summer is around the corner, and the Easter bank holiday weekend is upon us!


And here at Solid Electrical we have had lots of exciting projects starting this month.


The first being a new build design and build, ready for all new wiring, consisting of six new luxury apartments.


Thrilling news for us, we are pleased to announce that Solid Electrical has started an apprenticeship for not one, but two new apprentices. Always wanting to stay ahead in the industry, this will give the two college students an opportunity to step into the career of their choice with a Solid helping hand, and at the same time introduce new energy to the trade and allow Solid Electrical to move the company forwards.


FEBRUARY 2022


Fantastic start to 2022!


Solid Electrical enjoyed a record breaking month for January which was our busiest yet, proving a fantastic start to the new year!  A great many thanks to all our loyal customers that have made this possible.


We are also very happy to announce securing a considerable job for a new build flats project in South Croydon, which is soon to go ahead.


Also keeping us busy has been carrying out the first batch of fire alarm inspections of the year, ensuring compliance for our customers.


Always continual work for us is the preparation of Electrical Installation Condition Reports for rental accomodation and owner occupied.  Did you know the recommended maximum period between inspections is five years for rental, and ten years for owner occupied?


An EICR is carried out as a precaution and can identify possible faults that could lead to fire or electric shock, and even identify a potential failure of an installation before the event occurs. Well worth considering we think.  A small fee - for huge peace of mind.
