Together Housing is installing hybrid energy systems into new houses. This first phase of new build housing by Together Housing will see the installation of solar panels on 250 homes fitted with Prime hybrid energy systems. The panels will be complemented by Prime smart battery storage units, which will enable most of the power generated by the panels to be used in the property during the day and night. Called...

#Electric#Vehicle#Charge#Points 71% of #consumers are considering buying an electric vehicle #EVsaccording to Auto Trader up from just 25% two years ago. But with the growth rate of licensed plug in vehicles is almost six times as fast than that of public charging point locations in the UK, over the last five years this has led to ‘highly dangerous alternatives at home’, with 75% using a domestic extension lead even admit to “daisy-chaining” – the risky practice of using …See more

A decade or so ago Solar panels were THE home improvement to have. You just needed a south facing (ish) roof with limited shade and you could start to reap the benefits of free electricity from solar panel arrays all topped up by the Government’s Feed In Tariff (FIT) payment.
With around 1,00,000 homes now fitted with solar panels across Britain, the sight of solar panels adorning south facing roofs becoming common and a vast range of choice over what type of solar panel to have (solar envy if your neighbour had black panels and you didn’t), the market is changing.
The model was simple and effective, the customer saves money, the government pays you to make it economical while the volume and familiarity of the technology becomes mainstream and as the price of electricity keeps going on up then people will offset those increases by investing in solar electricity.
A good solar panel array will provide people with around 25% to 30% of their electricity needs and the subsidy payments which brought the payback period down to under ten years , supplement the cost of the system. As the costs have fallen, a system now costs 75% less than early systems so the subsidy (FIT payments) have fallen until in April this year the FIT payments have ceased altogether.
Solar and Storage
The technology has not stopped developing and nor has the need for it to do so. Electricity costs have kept increasing and with the advent of new home technologies, more computers and connected (IOT) technologies so homes have become more power hungry. Not to mention our obsession with having everything on standby ready to operate at a click of a switch, all of which adds to our electricity costs. Add in the outdoor living space: barbecue, speaker systems and outdoor lighting and home demand for electricity is on the rise.
Then there is the elephant in the room, your next (or next but one) car will be at least a hybrid, or a fully electric vehicle (EV). that’s going to need to be fully recharged overnight (no you can’t just do it at work and get them to pay). The Government will provide a OLEV grant of up £500 (or 75%) towards the cost of installing an approved recharging point. But it is going to take electricity to make it work and we need that electricity to come from renewable sources if we are going to be genuinely reducing our carbon footprint.
That all means that even if we do our bit to reduce our current consumption, (think LED lightbulbs, turning the TV off at the plug and not running the underfloor heating 24/7) then homes will need to use generated electricity far better.
The industry has developed new solutions in home renewable technologies, primarily around getting more out of your solar panels. By adding smart batteries to existing (retrofit) or putting in a solar and storage solution homes can become far less dependent upon their utility provider and achieve grid neutrality for over half the year.
Solar and Storage saves your electricity to a battery which is monitoring your demand and ensures it saves as much electricity as you need to reduce your external demand for mains electricity. The smart monitoring systems actively manage your storage to maximise your own independent electricity usage.
Most homes do not use that much electricity during the day, their main usage is at night (retired people use more but even they still use more during the evening) and early next morning. Kettles, cookers, TV’s, lights etc all consume a lot of electricity, so storing your daytime over generation to use during the evening and next morning electricity demand, makes a huge impact on your costs.
A solar and storage system can make you grid neutral for over 8 months a year, that means that outside November, December, January and February you can be fairly sure that you will be grid neutral. Solar and storage solutions therefore take the 25% saving of solar panel systems up to closer to 70% saving for a typical home owner. Coupled with that is that you can still export excess electricity to get a payment (SEG payments) and that the cost of a solar and storage system is far less than a solar panel array 10 years ago results in a return of investment of around 7 years, which is what people achieved under the old FIT payments.
O when looking at energy savings to be made do look at solar and storage using smart battery technologies. Absolute Solar have partnered up with Prime Hybrid Energy Systems to offer their extensive range of solar and storage solutions for people looking at installing, or upgrading their home renewable energy.

Carbon and Grid Neutral Home
Electricity generation and Storage
Using solar and storage systems you can generate your own electricity when the sun shines, store and use it when you need it. Smart storage systems, called dynamic storage ensure your home is using stored and generated energy first, taking you off-grid when possible. With Prime’s hybrid dynamic energy system you can be off-grid for 8 months a year. No bills just free electricity when you need it from your own roof solar panel array feeding a 2.8KW smart battery system running your home. Becoming grid neutral is as simple as that, see they system with a live demonstration on stand at the show today and over the weekend at Absolute Solar stand J180.
Hot Water: When you need it
The second major home cost is in generating hot water for heating and running hot water. Evacuation tubes traditionally provided hot water when the sun shone on them, but people needed hot water in the early morning and evening.
Absolute Solar now installs the most advanced thermodynamic hot water system in the world which converts sun and air warmth into hot water at a constant 55C using the latest technology.
This innovative new system by ENERGIE works 24/7/365 producing instant, constant, and FREE hot water (outside the north pole). A system which uses both the sun and the air temperature to convert heat into hot water.
Homebuilder & Renovation Show NEC 28th to 31st March
Like to see how and what it does then come along to the National Homebuilders & Renovation Show at the NEC this weekend 28th to 31st March.
The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) is connected to both the UK Department of Transport and the UK Department of Trade, Energy, and Industrial Strategy. It exists to promote the adoption of low emission vehicles.
You can find out more about OLEV on the UK government’s website, click the link below..
The OLEV Grant is to encourage car buyers to opt for an electric vehicle, OLEV offer a cash payment to help with startup costs. If you own or rent an electric vehicle, you could receive up to £500 towards the cost of buying and installing an electric charge point.
HOW DO I KNOW IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE?
The manufacturer, as well as the installer of your charge point, need to be authorized by OLEV for a successful application. Both Rolec and Absolute Solar are OLEV certified suppliers and installers of EV Charge points..
To qualify for the OLEV Grant you need to meet the following criteria:
You have off-street parking.
Your property is within the UK.
Your vehicle is eligible for the grant.
You are the registered keeper or primary user of the vehicle after 1 April 2015.
You can provide evidence that you own or lease an electric vehicle (even if you haven’t received the vehicle).
