PV Solar UK Ltd

PV Solar UK Ltd (SC369315)


The company was incorporated in Scotland on the 27th of November 2009 by Stephen Mabbott and Brian Reid Ltd, the shares and director positions of the company were swiftly re-assigned to Robert Logie Skillen & Douglas Wilkie in late 2009 and early 2010 respectively.

Both Skillen & Wilkie were heavily involved with the Aquashield Roof Protection Limited ‘scam’, that company was forced into liquidation over unpaid debts in 2010 and the pair went on to run the now disgraced Home Energy & Lifestyle Management Ltd a.k.a. HELMS which is in liquidation at the time of writing following a record fine from the I.C.O. for making six million nuisance phone calls.


Companies House shows PV Solar UK Ltd accounts with revenue from sales in excess of £60Million for the period 2012 > 2014 and articles online show the high-flying lives enjoyed by those running the company.



Rapid expansion from 2011 onwards was fuelled by a partnership with Barclays who provided finance on many of PV Solar UK Ltd's installations throughout the UK.

A strong well rehearsed sales pitch combined with often over exaggerated financial return figures lead to booming sales and, in time, a trail of very unhappy customers that have been left £1,000's out of pocket.

Barclays ended their partnership with PV Solar UK Ltd who then enlisted the assistance of Shawbrook to continue with their money making scheme.

Douglas Wilkie resigned as a director in mid 2015 and was followed about a year later by Robert Logie Skillen who resigned in August 2016.
