Going Green is more than just Solar Panels

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.

Hybrid Energy installed into New Houses

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 Solar & Storage when domestic solar panel array are combined with a smart battery system to create a home power system which supports a homes needs both day and night.

The project is expected to save each household up to £300 a year on their electricity bills and reduce their electricity based carbon emissions by 70-80%, an equivalent of 845kg per house per year, that’s a total of 633,600kg over the lifetime of the three year pilot.

This shift from solar panels generating around 30% of a homes electricity needs to up to 80% comes from storage of electricity to when a household needs it most in the evenings and mornings. Saving renewable energy to use when you need it makes a huge impact on your utility bills. Prime hybrid energy systems use a smart battery system which actively monitors your energy needs maximising your stored energy usage to minimise your grid demand.

A typical Prime system can make you grid neutral for up to 8 months a year, cutting your utility bill costs while reducing your carbon footprint.

“The beauty of battery storage is that power generated during the day can be stored and used when it is needed, even after the sun goes down.”

National Homebuilding & Renovation Show #NBSNEC19 28th to 31st March

National Homebuilding & Renovation Show #NBSNEC19

Is the ideal show to see and learn about going carbon and grid neutral. The latest technologies enable homebuilders and homeowners to build or renovate their homes to reduce their carbon footprint and their energy bills by introducing the latest proven solar technologies. 

  

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.
