Sustainability to the fore at North Cork Electrical

25 Mar , 2024  

North Cork Electrical is a fast-growing electrical contractor specialising in renewable energy solutions.

Based in Lombardstown, Mallow, North Cork Electrical is committed to empowering communities and businesses to embrace eco-friendly alternatives. The company was founded in 2016 by local man Richard Crowley who had spent the previous 18 years working in the electrical contracting, oil and gas, mining and construction industries in Ireland and Australia. Focusing on his own strengths and expertise, he has grown the business into a leader in the renewable energy sector, while also specialising in all aspects of electrical contracting.

“After qualifying as an electrician in 2008, I moved to Australia the following year to work in gold, lead, iron ore and offshore gas. I also returned to college to improve my skills in the instrumentation side of things to work as a dual trade,” Richard explains.

“Fuelled by a passion for sustainability and renewable energy solutions, I returned to my roots as an experienced instrumentation and electrical technician to set up North Cork Electrical. I envisaged a future where people could harness renewable energy. Starting with three staff, we now have a team of 12 with two more coming on board in 2024.

“While the focus is very much on renewables, we are a one-stop shop for all your electrical and installation needs, catering primarily for the residential, commercial and agri sectors.”

Specialising in a myriad of sustainable energy solutions, North Cork Electrical has earned an enviable reputation for cutting-edge technology, meticulous craftsmanship and complete client satisfaction. From solar power PV and electrical vehicle charger installations to energy monitoring and electrical contracting, Richard and his highly-trained team has everything covered. No job is too big or too small for North Cork Electrical which has the experience, knowledge and resources to deliver in the most professional and cost-effective way.

“Our aim is to provide exceptional workmanship at an affordable cost. We make it our business to leave as little amount of work for the next person coming behind us,” Richard says.

“We are extremely passionate about renewable energy and strive to promote an energy efficient, low carbon environment to homeowners, commercial operators and the agri sector. We work closely with SEAI and BER assessors in this regard. Our energy monitoring system helps to measure, monitor and manage energy consumption and expenses across all utilities in real time. We can design and tailor systems to reduce your energy costs by as much as 70%.

“With advancements in renewable energy technology, its affordability and professional installers on hand to get projects done quickly, there has never been a better time to go solar. Generous SEAI grants are also available to make renewable energy possible.”

North Cork Electrical boasts an impressive client-base which includes Murphy New Homes – Ireland’s largest residential house builder – Cork City Council and Údarás na Gaeltachta. Indeed, it has just started a solar PV and electrical vehicle charger installation project in Ballyvourney for Údarás na Gaeltachta.

“We have built up a loyal customer-base over the years and our expertise allows us to understand their requirements and support them accordingly,” the affable managing director adds.

North Cork Electrical’s top-class team of electricians are supported by the same tried and tested subcontractors. It goes without saying that the company is committed to fostering a culture in which project quality and Health & Safety becomes a lifestyle choice.

“The only subcontractors we really use are fully-qualified roofing contractors. I’m a big believer in ‘every man for their own job’. We also insist on using Tier 1 materials for installations and top-quality equipment. By employing highly-skilled people and using only the very best electrical products, we are able to deliver the best possible service to our customers.”

Under Richard’s guidance, North Cork Electrical embraces the latest advancements in renewable energy technology to ensure clients receive state-of-the-art solutions tailored to their specific needs. The contractor’s commitment to excellence and innovation makes it a trusted partner for businesses, homeowners and farmers alike.

North Cork Electrical is committed to shaping a more sustainable world. With every project completed, it reaffirms its belief that renewable energy is not just a choice, but a responsibility. The fully-insured company continues to illuminate a path towards a greener future and is dedicated to training new apprentices to fulfil their potential in the electrical field.

As his company continues to go from strength to strength, Richard would like to take this opportunity to thank his clients and suppliers for their continued support as well as his staff and subcontractors for their hard work, dedication and expertise.
