September 12, 2018: Tonik Energy announced today that their parent company, RETIG Ltd, has acquired leading green technologies provider The Phoenix Works. The agreement strengthens the already established partnership between the two companies who have been working together since early 2017 developing, selling and installing integrated solar, battery and EV solutions as part of a joint ambition to enable increased uptake of distributed energy.
Thomas Newby, managing director of The Phoenix Works explains, “From the first time we were introduced to Tonik it was clear their approach would differentiate them in the energy market. Unlike others in the sector, Tonik’s core plan to integrate smart technologies into their customer offering, rather than look to add installation services as a bolt on, is refreshing and progressive. Chris has brought together a diverse, enthusiastic team of experienced industry specialists to deliver his vision. Combined with a common approach of customer-centric service and quality, we are excited to be joining the team. Together we can deploy clean-tech solutions at scale whilst delivering outstanding value and innovation for our customers.”
The Phoenix Works (the trading name for Phoenix Renewables), was founded in 2010 by Thomas Newby and Matthew Morgan. Based in Leeds, the team of more than 20 skilled specialists are passionate about deploying renewable technologies nationwide in both homes and businesses. They have built up a strong reputation for delivering quality products and technical excellence, combined with exceptional customer service. The company has broad experience in a wide range of clean-tech solutions, from residential solar and battery storage systems, to public electric vehicle charging networks. They work closely with recognised, trusted technology providers such as SolarEdge, Enphase, Tesla, LG Solar, Trina Solar, SunPower, Ensto, EO charging, eVolt and ABB, to deliver market leading solutions. The team are Solar Power Portal award winners and are accredited Which? Trusted Traders.
Tonik Energy is a fast-growing renewable energy and technology supplier established in 2016, employing over 100 people in their Birmingham office. In June this year the company was presented the award for ‘Customer Service Recognition’ by the Renewable Energy Association (REA), to celebrate delivering customer service excellence and innovation whilst adding value to their customers. Tonik’s mission to halve their customers’ energy bills through the rollout of renewable technology is strategically aligned with Phoenix’s expertise in the design, implementation and maintenance of green technology solutions.
Both businesses share a common goal of driving the uptake of renewable technologies to tackle both climate change and fuel poverty. Together, over the next 3-years, Tonik and Phoenix plan to rollout over 10,000 electric vehicle charge points and deploy a mass market solar and battery storage solution across UK homes and businesses.
Chris Russell, managing director of Tonik concludes, “From our early conversations with Thomas and Matt, it was very clear that there was a great synergy between the two businesses. Our common belief in the importance of delivering a high-quality, customer focused, renewable future for the UK has been the foundation of our partnership to date. In a world where sophisticated clean-tech is being installed into the fabric of homes and relied on for transport, quality is absolutely paramount – and that is something that the Phoenix Works have nailed to date. By aligning Tonik and Phoenix even more closely, we believe we are well placed to accelerate our plans even further; there is a massive opportunity to unlock genuine value and carbon savings for customers. In doing so, we can remove the existing barriers to purchase that many households and businesses have come up against in the past, changing the way people generate, store and use energy. This represents a unique opportunity for people to take control of both their energy bills and their carbon footprint by deploying renewable, distributed energy solutions.
