Completed in November 2013, as part of the refurbishment of a farm house in Balscote near Banbury, we installed a Danfoss DHP-AQ Master/Slave Heat Pump to replace an aging oil boiler. Heating was distributed by both Myson Under-floor heating in the new kitchen/dining room and radiators elsewhere. At the sametime we installed a 3.92kWp Solar Photovoltaic system using world leading SunPower panels. One year on and the system has performed very well. The Air Source Heat Pumps have cost approximately £795 to run and the SunPower Solar Panels generated 10% more electricity than estimated. Financially our client is very pleased. What was a £2,500 annual bill for oil is now £795 for heating and hot water. There is also the added benefit that the system is eligible to claim the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). This is a Government Incentive to help consumers invest in renewable energy and come away from fossil fuel heating. In this case the client will receive £1,460 per annum for 7 years; a total of £10,200!!!! The Solar panels have been registered to the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme which pays for the energy generated. In year one this has earned the client a further £550 and will be paid for the next 20 years!!! All in all a very happy customer. If you are considering a refurbishment or new build then do not hesitate to contact us on 01789 262411 to discuss your requirements.Posted in Heat Pumps, Microgeneration, Renewable Energy, Solar Panels, Solar Photovoltaic, Solar PV | Leave a comment

Following a recent installation of a 5.60kWp Solar panel system in Leamington Spa we have received a recommendation via Renewable Energy Consumer Site YouGen
The system consisted of 20 x R280 “all black” SunEdison Solar Panels with an SMA Solar Inverters SB5000TL inverter.
The customer comments included “really helpful & polite installers”. To read the full review click here >

In one month’s time a Solar PV system installed in Clifford Chambers, near Stratford-upon-Avon, using Schueco Panels & SMA Inverter will be 3 year’s old.
It has already delivered over 10% more FREE electricity than expected , a guaranteed Tax FREE income & reduced the customer’s electricity bill.
Wishing to continue their energy saving “journey” the client is now ordering an Electric Car so we have recently installed an OLEV funded Electric Car Charging point.
“estimated generation for 3 years was 8,118kWh. Customer reports 21/10/14 that it actually generated 9,002kWh which “makes me happy!!”

In June we installed 152 x SunPower Solar Panels (49.70kWp) with 3 SMA Tri-Power inverters at the Leamington Spa Rehabilitation Hospital. The project was funded by Community Energy Warwickshire, a co-op of shareholders who have been investing in renewable energy projects.
The system has already generated over 23,000kWh of FREE electricity for the hospital, 50% of the annual target. This has also generated an income for the shareholders.
We have received this week feedback from customer via Twitter that we installed a 3.92kWp 12 panel SunPower world leading Solar Panels Solar PV system earlier this year with an SMA Solar inverters inverter & Solar iBoost that diverts surplus self generated energy via the immersion to heat water.
“Just received £370 rebate from @SWALEC in latest bill following install of #solarpv and #SOLARiBOOST by @Stratfordenergy. Very impressed!!”
The BMW i8 is the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of the plug-in hybrid lies, among other factors, in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, which makes itself apparent in maximum efficiency and dynamics on the road.

Having installed an OLEV funded Electric Vehicle Charging Point for Mr S. we were asked to consider Solar PV panels.
The only available roof space was on a South facing garage roof which had space for 10 panels as well as a degree of early morning shading from the house. The solution was 10 x SunPower E20 327w panels with a SolarEdge inverter & power optimisers. This ensured maximum generation from the 3.27kWp system along with individual panel monitoring.
We also installed an Immersun 2 heating control to ensure that all self-generated FREE electricity was used by diverting to the immersion heater to heat water.
The result is a car powered by the Sun, reduced electricity & gas consumption, reduced carbon footprint, 20year tax free index-linked income and a happy customer.
