Solar Photovoltaic Panels
Solar PV generates electricity from the suns light (photons) and converts it into usable electricity, this can either be sold back to the mains grid or used in the home. Now, with the prevalence of battery storage, more people are storing that energy and using it at home. this energy can also be used to run a heat pump to heat your house, hot water or swimming pool; saving huge amounts off your bill. With the increase cost of gas, there is now a positive drive to change from your natural gas boiler to a combined system using a combination of Solar PV, Battery and Heat Pump, allowing you to be virtually off grid and not subject increasing energy costs, not to mention seriously reducing your impact on the environment.
Solar Thermal Panels
Solar Thermal Panels are used to create hot water for use at home. The sun heats the panels, then that heat is transported to your hot water cylinder; free hot water from the sun. You can also take advantage of the government’s RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme to help repay the cost of your system over the next 7 years.
