Going Green

Going green can mean a number of things but all are generally related to using less non-renewable energy by using renewable energy like electricity generated using the sun or the wind.


Solar Panels


Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels fitted to your roof harness the free and renewable energy of the sun to power your heating (solar thermal), lights and appliances. A government 'feed-in tariff' scheme actually pays you for the electricity you produce. This is in addition to your electricity bill savings.

Here is the good bit. If your panels produce more electricity than you use, the surpless energy goes back into the national grid and you get paid for this too. This is tax free and rises with inflation. So you get paid for everything you produce, whether you use it or not and you get paid for your surplus.

You can receive an excellent return on your investment as the savings and energy cashback will eventually cover the installation – and much more. Your installed energy meter will tell you just how much you are saving. It doesn't have to be sunny to work.Your solar panel will produce energy even on cloudy days.

We only use qualified installers who are professinoals in this field. If you are looking solar panels for your home, or indeed a wind turbine or ground source heat pump, we can provide a full consultation and installation service. Every property is different,so we will visit your property and assist you through the process, to ensure that the correct panel specifications are used. Our work is carried out to the highest standards and you can be confident of our quality service.
