Solar PV, Voltage Optimisation and EMMA unit Installation in Sheffield, Yorkshire.
Domestic Energy Reduction Package, Sheffield.
The client came to Homeco Energy wanting a complete energy reduction solution for his property. The client was concerned about the recent hike in energy prices and wanted to buffer him and his family from the contant rises.
Homeco Energy came up with a solution to meet his needs and his budget. Our suggested package not only saw the client generate his own power by way of a 4kW Solar PV installation, we also enabled him to better manage this generated power by the use of an Energy Management Unit (EMMA). We also looked at reducing his consumption by fitting a Voltage Optimisation Unit - which reduces his electricity consumption by over ten percent.
We also replaced his thirty year old boiler with an up to date energy efficient condensing boiler and twin coil hot water cylinder. This has helped to future proof his property as we can add a solar thermal installation at a later date whilst the energy efficient boiler will see him reduce his gas consumption immediately.
The aim was to implement a new Solar PV installation to the existing tiled roof. As the Solar PV & Renewable Energy installer in Sheffield, Homeco sourced a specific mounting system to help meet the needs of the installation and make it as straight forward as possible.
