Segen 20th Birthday
A little bit about us…

We are excited to announce that Segen is celebrating its 20th anniversary! Founded in 2004 in the UK, we have grown rapidly ever since. Segen is now a leading global distributor of solar PV, energy storage systems, electric vehicle charging, and other associated components. In addition to our headquarters in the UK, we now have subsidiaries in Europe and South Africa.

Segen has achieved a lot in its 20 years, starting with our very own Portal, which launched in 2011 and Design Tool in 2013.

Our Portal is well known for its many features:

• Quick Add
• Lots of training to attend, including our very own Portal Masterclass we host every Friday
• Industry news updates
• Lots of important documentation on each product page
• A view of all our products with live stock and pricing
• Kit Builder
• And of course, our very own Design Tool

Since our Design Tool was introduced, it has helped a number of our customers get detailed customised PV system designs 24/7, which automatically lists all compatible components. Another perk is that if you convert it to a quote, it locks all prices for 30 days… and the tool is completely free!

The Solar Coaster

Segen has experienced a lot in its 20 years… one of those experiences being the one and only ‘Solar Coaster’. This well and truly shocked us all as the demand for renewable energy skyrocketed. It wasn’t easy, but we got through it, and we are so grateful to all our manufacturers, customers, and most importantly staff for working alongside us every step of the way. We’ve also gone through many changes and adaptations, that being the opening of our new distribution centre in Medway, new partnerships, the soon-to-be Segen Academy, and much more!

To celebrate Segen turning 20 we will be attending multiple events across the year. Starting with Solar & Storage Live in April, make sure you stop by stand G11 to say hello, take a look at our products, and have a celebratory drink with us – click here to register for your FREE ticket! We will also be exhibiting at the Installer Show in June followed by Solar & Storage in September. We are also excited to announce that we will be hosting a handful of Segen Roadshows from October, so watch this space for more information coming soon!

What we plan to do next

Over the next 20 years, our fantastic Segen team will work closely with our manufacturers and customers to enable a greener future for all. We would also like to give a big shout-out to Liz McFarlane, Segen’s very own VP of Sales and Advisor to the Global Board as she has been working extremely hard with the Solar Task Force to ensure we hit 70GW by 2035. 

Thank you all for your continued support and a huge congrats to the Segen team for building those relationships and getting us to where we are today… the UK’s largest wholesale distributor. Now, lets celebrate this milestone together!
