Powelectrics launches a new subsidiary… PowUtilities!

Powelectrics is delighted to announce the official launch of its first subsidiary business, PowUtilities, set up to deliver SMART electricity, gas and water metering technology for multi-occupancy sites, such as residential and holiday parks, managed and serviced offices, and industrial units.

The image shows PowUtilities Directors, Dave Oakes, Adam Worthington and Peter Quinn sealing the deal.

Adam told us: “I’ve worked with Powelectrics for over a decade developing this solution and always been impressed with their ability to deliver.

“Joining forces as PowUtilities is an obvious evolution, combining my concept and extensive sector experience, with Powelectrics infrastructure, R&D and manufacturing capabilities, in order to offer best in class SMART metering solutions.”

Dave Oakes, Powelectrics MD adds: “PowUtilities is an incredible combination of decades of business knowledge, with technology that offers a win-win for site owners and tenants alike!

“The metering technology is incredibly well-proven, already installed on thousands of UK residential & holiday homes and offering accurate, automatic metering & centralised billing.

“Ongoing issues with foreign travel only serve to highlight the enormous potential in the UK holiday home market alone! I have no doubt that this business will enjoy huge success!”
