A firm that helps landowners to install renewable energy systems is taking 10,874 sq ft of office space in Liverpool city centre to accommodate its rapid expansion.

Green Switch Capital (GSW) has already facilitated investment into solar, wind and battery projects worth a combined £350m across the UK. With the push to net zero now accelerating the firm is enjoying significant growth. 

In late 2021 it took a 2,250 sq ft suite on the 4th floor of Exchange Station, a 193,000 sq ft office complex in Tithebarn Street. For 150 years until 1977 the site was the location of a major mainline railway station.

Alex Goode of CEG , added: “We are delighted to welcome Green Switch Capital to the thriving business community within Exchange Station.
