"For the benefit of our customers"

Solar Energy

Thousands of homeowners are generating their own electricity and getting paid a tax free and inflation proofed income to do it. Returns are guarenteed for the next 20 years. To find out more click here.


Community Energy

Many home roofs are not suitable for solar panels. They face the wrong way or are shaded from the sun. But anyone can invest in community power schemes and still generate income from solar panels.

GREEN HEAT

Thanks to a new Government scheme we can now offer subsidy payments on the installation of heat pumps. If you currently use oil or electricity to heat your home or office please contact us.

What are Heat Pumps?

Heat pumps come in two varities - ground source and air sourced.  We only do air sourced heat pumps (ASHP).  You can find out a lot more from the Energy Saving Trust. EST are an independent trust that provides advice on energy saving and renewable technology.  You can learn more here.

Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.

An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.

They need electricity to run; but for every unit of electricity used a pump can extract 3 or 4 units of heat from the outside air.  If you use oil or electricity to heat your home then you should consider installing a heat pump. They will save you money and produced less greenhouse gas emissions.

What is the Renewable Heat Initiative?

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources. Again you can learn more from the Energy Saving Trust here.
