COVID-19 update – Solar & EV Charger installations re-commence with revised working methods

As a responsible business we have always been focussed on the Health & Safety of our staff and customers. We have closely followed the COVID-19 Government guidelines suspending all installation work on the 24th March.

Over the last 2 weeks we have communicated with our clients on their thoughts on our return to installing and following last night’s announcement by the Prime Minister we began a phased return to work today.

Our working methods have been updated to ensure the safety of both staff and customers with careful consideration for each individual project discussing any requirements with home & business owners.

We continue to run all administration functions of the business as normal with skeleton staff working in the office and others at home.

All unnecessary visits including initial site surveys will continue to be virtual with the use of Google Earth and video conferencing such as Zoom or MS Teams. Now maybe an ideal time whilst at home to discuss opportunities for Solar, Energy Storage or EV Charging.

In the meantime, we thank our customers & staff for your support and understanding during this difficult time. Our thoughts are also with anyone directly affected by the virus and our amazing NHS workers.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us either by calling 01789 262411 or emailing info@stratfordenergy.co.uk.

How Solar Can Play a Role in the Recovery After COVID-19 & Ensure a Greener Future

COVID-19 has & will continue to have a massive impact on individuals, businesses & the economy. The current focus remains on alleviating the significant health concerns accompanying this pandemic and businesses grapple to adapt to the new culture of social distancing, economic hardship and reduced workforce. However, at the same time efforts to boost the economy can start with an emphasis towards sustainability. As communities wait on the country to transition into recovery, Stratford Energy Solutions can help with this drive to a greener future.

Solar Energy Fights Climate Change – While the world experiences the current health COVID-19 crisis, Climate Change is another global crisis that needs to be faced. As a clean technology solution, Solar can help reduce the amount of pollution released into the atmosphere. Each solar system installed can take us a step closer to preventing Climate Change.

Solar Power is Cost-EffectiveSolar has become increasingly affordable throughout the years for both home and business owners looking to save with an alternative energy source. As continued advancements in Solar technology increase efficiency, homeowners can generate more power at a lower cost. For businesses & community buildings we can offer systems with no capital expenditure or lease agreements to avoid large investment but still allowing long terms energy cost reductions.

Solar creates jobs – as Stratford Energy Solutions continue to expand, along with other Solar installers we will increase our teams & employ more people.

We can offer advice, carry out desktop surveys & arrange virtual meetings to discuss our proposals.


Record Solar outputs help UK to reach longest coal-free period since pre-industrial times

Maximised levels of solar generation have ensured the delivery of a new coal-free record period for the grid. Coal power plants have been offline since 00:00 on Friday 10 April 2020, and since then the UK has seen more than 1 terawatt hour of solar power put on the grid in that period – enough to boil water for over 25 billion cups of tea or drive 6.7 billion kilometres in a Nissan Leaf.

Last week’s bumper generation levels delivered over 11% of UK electricity demand and set both a new daily peak generation record of 9.68GW at 12:30 on Monday 20 April 2020, and weekly generation record at 485.41GWh.

We can all contribute to this cleaner living by reducing energy usage & generating your own. If you are interested in joining the Solar Revolution contact us today by clicking here to arrange a virtual meeting.

Solar Power sets new generation record

The UK’s solar capacity set a new generation record earlier this month, almost a year to the day it achieved the same feat in 2017.

Data compiled by PV Live and verified by National Grid show that PV generation peaked at 9.42GW from 11:30 AM on Monday 14 May, edging just past the previous record of 9.37GW set almost a year ago.

These record-setting periods also saw solar provide 25% of the country’s entire demand, the second largest power source at that time of day. Combined with wind (10%) and nuclear (18%), low-carbon sources made up more than half of the UK’s entire energy demand around midday.

And the record caps off what has been a highly productive period for the UK’s renewables fleet. Solar PV has regularly contributed upwards of 25% of the UK’s power supply around the midday peak in recent weeks, and the early May bank holiday spell saw PV become the dominant energy source for a total of six full hours over the weekend.

Far from being an overarching issue for National Grid, the transmission system operator has repeatedly asserted that it has the tools at its disposal to cope with such periods of significant solar generation.
