Transform your property into a sustainable and energy-efficient space with the power of the sun. Our team is dedicated to empowering you with clean, renewable energy solutions, such as solar PV and solar thermal, to reduce your carbon footprint and energy bills.


What is Solar PV?


Solar PV is an efficient and cost-effective way to generate electricity from the sun's energy. Solar PV systems consist of solar cells which are connected together in modules and connected to an inverter. This inverter converts the Direct Current (DC) generated by the solar cells into Alternating Current (AC) which can be used in homes and businesses. Solar PV systems are easy to install, require little maintenance, and are renewable and clean energy sources. With no added energy input, they can provide clean, renewable electricity with no emissions.


What is solar thermal?


Solar thermal energy is the process of collecting and converting the sun's thermal energy into usable heat. Solar thermal systems use mirrors and lenses to focus the sun's rays and create heat, which is then used to heat water, generate electricity, or provide space heating. Solar thermal systems are an efficient and cost-effective way to generate renewable energy and can reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Solar thermal systems can be used in both residential and commercial settings, and can provide an environmentally friendly and reliable source of energy.


Solar PV and solar thermal technology offer numerous benefits for homeowners and businesses, including:

  • Environmentally friendly as it is a renewable energy source

  • Clean and efficient energy production

  • Reliable energy source – produces energy even on cloudy days

  • Cost effective – lower electricity bills

  • Low Maintenance

  • Reduced dependence on the national grid

  • Ideal for remote areas and those wishing to go off-grid

Installing an air source heat pump can increase the value of your property. With more and more people prioritizing energy efficiency and sustainability, an air source heat pump can be a selling point for prospective buyers.


Government Incentives


The government offers financial incentives for homeowners and businesses to install solar PV and / or solar thermal systems. You may be eligible for a grant or other financial assistance, which can help offset the cost of installation.
