    What is a small-scale wind turbine?2022-04-20T18:35:10+01:00

    Small scale wind turbines deliver energy at a rate of 50kW or less.

    Can I combine a wind turbine with Solar PV panels to harvest energy all year round?2022-04-20T18:34:56+01:00

    Yes, we can design a renewable energy solution that combines wind turbines with Solar PV systems, often these solutions include battery storage so any excess electricity you generate can be stored for future use or sold back to the grid.

    What will Solar Thermal panels provide?2022-04-20T18:34:44+01:00

    An average sized Solar Thermal system can provide up to 70% of your hot water needs and save you significant heating costs.

    How are Solar PV and Solar Thermal different?2022-04-20T18:34:33+01:00

    Solar PV panels use the sun’s energy to generate electricity while Solar Thermal uses the suns energy to provide hot water for your home.

    Can a Solar Thermal system heat my swimming pool?2022-04-20T18:34:20+01:00

    Solar thermal systems can be an efficient, environmentally friendly way to heat your swimming pool and reduce running costs compared with more traditional electric or oil boiler systems.

    How does battery storage improve my Solar PV system?2022-04-20T18:34:06+01:00

    Battery storage can reduce your electricity costs, give you better grid independence and provide backup in the event of a power cut to your property.

    What size battery will I need?2022-04-20T18:33:55+01:00

    This will depend on the size of your home and what you need the battery to supply. There is a variety of different battery options and our team can guide you to the perfect solution.

    How much electricity do GSHPs use?2022-04-20T18:33:45+01:00

    For every 1kW of electricity used by a GSHP it can provide 3 to 4 kW of heat output.

    Will I be able to install a GSHP on my property?2022-04-20T18:33:30+01:00

    This depends on how much space is available and what current source of heating you have if you are replacing an existing system.

    Is a GSHP noisy?2022-04-20T18:33:16+01:00

    A GSHP is virtually silent and can be fitted inside your house.

    Can an ASHP be used instead of a boiler?2022-04-20T18:33:01+01:00

    Yes, as long as the ASHP has been correctly sized and designed for your property it will provide all your heating and hot water needs.

    How much will an ASHP cost?2022-04-20T18:32:50+01:00

    Due to the need for a bespoke design for each home, the cost will vary depending on the size of the property and how well insulated it is.

    Do ASHPs make a lot of noise?2022-04-20T18:32:40+01:00

    ASHPs are not considered to be noisy and do not require planning permission.

    Can I heat my swimming pool with an ASHP?2022-04-20T18:32:29+01:00

    Air source heat pumps can be a great way to heat your swimming pool and can be combined with a solar PV system for an even more cost effective solution.

    Solar PV, what is it?2022-04-20T18:32:14+01:00

    Solar photovoltaics (PV) convert light into electricity, they do not have any moving parts.

    What is a Solar PV Panel made from?2022-04-20T18:31:58+01:00

    The majority of Solar PV panels are usually made up of silicon, glass and aluminium framework.

    Does my roof need to face south if I want Solar Panels?2022-04-20T18:31:45+01:00

    Solar Panels work best facing South but are still very efficient facing due East or West

    Do I need a large roof for Solar Panels?2022-04-20T18:31:34+01:00

    Not necessarily, even a smaller roof can provide enough space for a suitable system.

    Will my Solar Panels only work when the sun is shining?2022-04-20T18:31:19+01:00

    Direct sunlight produces the most electricity, but the panels will work in all daylight conditions.
