- Solar Power for Homes
Solar Power is the UK's number one choice of renewable energy for households. Solar Power for homes is generated by solar panels; these are either photovoltaic (PV) solar panels or thermal solar panels.
With rising energy costs and the threat of fossil fuels running out solar power is a great alternative energy source for the home. Not only is it a way of generating clean energy with no carbon emissions, but by installing solar panels you are also able to future proof some if not all of the energy costs for your home.
Solar Power for the home is a rising market and there are great schemes available backed by the government to help ease the financial costs and to make it possible to see a return on the investment. Schemes such as the feed-in tariff have helped the solar power market to see a 400% rise in 15 months which has been fuelled by the schemes' popularity.
- Commercial Solar Panels
Solar Panels for businesses are continuing to grow in popularity, like solar power for homes, commercial solar installations can save businesses money and also generate income.
Solar Panels for businesses and commercial use can be used to create large solar arrays that are capable of producing vast quantities of electricity for the company to use or to export to the national grid. The feed-in tariff scheme is available for businesses and means that companies can be paid an income for any excess energy they produce and export, this scheme helps businesses to receive a return on their solar panel investment.
There are many examples across the UK of businesses utilising solar panels to power their business and to generate an additional revenue stream. The biggest increase in the private sector has been for farming and agricultural businesses. Solar panels perfectly suit this type of commercial business, as the open, un-shaded space is often available for a large solar installation. Read more ...
Asbestos Removal issues

- Heat Pumps
The two most popular types of heat pump for the home are ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Both work in the same way but extract heat from different sources. Heat pumps do require electricity to run, but the level of electricity used is outweighed by the heat energy produced therefore making heat pumps a good choice of alternative energy for the home.
Ground source heat pumps tend to be more efficient but cost more to install as the installation process requires placing a network of pipes underground. Air source heat pumps are much easier to install as they tend to be placed on the side or back of the home or business property. Heat pumps are most efficient at heating space but can be used to heat water.
Heat Pumps will be eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) that is set to launch in 2012, this will help make heat pumps more affordable and will make it easier to see a return on the investment.
