Medoria Solar is a Christian company located between Leeds and Wakefield which has the aim of creating a brighter and greener future by encouraging efficient use of energy.
The business was founded when a Christian businessman, Philip Chow, teamed up with a Christian electrician, Gareth Ayres, to focus on the growing market for producing renewable electricity from Solar PV panels.
Based in West Yorkshire, we only operate in a limited geographical region which means that we are always close to our customers. We offer a high-quality, personalised, professional service to each and every customer. We do not employ high-pressure selling techniques and you will deal directly with the Company's owners, Philip and Gareth, from initial design through to system installation, commissioning and after-sales care.
Philip completed his degree in German at Nottingham University in 1998 after which he moved to Yorkshire to work in the International Sales Department of an engineering company selling to companies such as BMW, Mercedes and VW Audi. He took redundancy in 2004, setting himself up as a self-employed financial trader and was awarded his MBA by Bradford University in 2006. He has attended South Parade Baptist Church, Headingley, for over 10 years and is a member of the 4c Group in Leeds (Christians Combating Climate Change).
