Solar Energy Technologies

Generating solar power is one of the safest and best investments you can make.

We install both Solar Thermal and Solar PV Technology depending on your requirements

Solar Photovoltaic Panels

Using solar energy is the best way for households to generate FREE, clean electricity. Our solar panel systems have the highest output and the best warranties available.

We have installed systems for residential and commercial properties throughout the UK. We consult with you, design a system suited to your lifestyle and install it at your convenience. Our quotes are detailed, jargon free and they don’t cost you a penny.

Guard Against Future Electricity Price Rises

The amount of money you save on electricity bills will increase each year as the price of electricity rises.

Solar Thermal

The technology behind solar thermal is similar to that of PV as it uses solar gain, but to heat a fluid.

Residential solar thermal systems main use is water heating. They usually work combined with another heating system (gas, fuel, ASHP) when the temperature in the water tank falls below a certain value and there is solar gain, the heat can then be transferred to a domestic hot water cylinder or buffer stone.

We have installed systems for commercial properties throughout the UK to offset water heating costs in large factories. We consult with you, design a system suited to your lifestyle/business and install it at your convenience. Our quotes are detailed, jargon free and they don’t cost you a penny.

Guard Against Future Electricity Price Rises

The amount of money you save on electricity bills will increase each year as the price of electricity rises.

Solar thermal systems work well alongside ASHP systems in providing domestic hot water when there is solar gain and therefore no need for the ASHP to run which intern increases the efficiency of the system.

Use Solar PV at Night

If you have solar panels generating electricity through the day and you aren’t using it at the time it goes straight to the National Grid.

When you have a solar battery you will store most of that electricity for use when you aren’t generating any solar electricity, i.e. at night.

A Solution that Works

Selecting the right battery for your current system’s generation and household requirements is important. We will help you make the right choice.

Cheap Rate Electricity

You will soon be able to top up the charge of your battery using cheap rate electricity overnight. This means that you start the day with a full battery at a fraction of your peak electricity rates

What’s Included

With our service the price you’re quoted is the price you pay. The panels, inverter, all of the mounting equipment and cabling are all on your quote as well as the full installation, registration, insurance, certificates and scaffolding if needed.

Our prices are some of the best on the market and we pride ourselves on the quality of our work and customer service.

We are happy for you to compare our quote to any other company.

Guaranteed Payments

Electricity Companies Must pay you for your Solar Energy.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is a Government initiative that makes electricity companies pay out to small-scale, low-carbon generators (residential) for electricity exported to the National Grid, providing certain criteria are met. This includes, but is not limited to Solar PV, Wind and combined heat and power.

You do not have to receive Smart Export payments from your current electricity supplier. You can apply to any electricity supplier that is large enough to offer the scheme.

You can sell your excess electricity to the highest bidder. Although you may find that you get a different payment rate for each unit of electricity exported if you choose an SEG only option.

Advantages of each technology

Solar PV

Excess electricity can be fed back to the grid offering an economic incentive.

A battery bank can be installed so unused daylight energy can be stored for night time domestic use.

In respect to power plants, the PV design is much simpler than that of thermal. A PV power station is formed of multiple solar panels connected in parallel and in series.

On a smaller scale, domestic PV systems are more versatile than thermal systems, since they can power many appliances (solar thermal is limited to space and water heating). They also have a larger lifespan.

Solar Thermal

Solar thermal technology for domestic use is much less complicated than solar PV. It’s important to point out that the energy generation for residential uses vary from thermal to PV systems. Thermal generate heat, while PV electricity. Thermal panels are also more space efficient.

Its possibility to store the energy generated, since thermal power plants don’t convert solar energy directly into electricity and domestic thermal systems always include a water tank where heat can be stored. PV systems, on the contrary, suffer from an inherent intermittency that stems from sunlight patterns. The storage of electricity is normally not considered an option, due to energy losses that make it really inefficient. That results in a more uniform and reliable supply of electricity by thermal plants.
