We recently did a solar and battery install very local to us - this was in Hemel Hempstead and we're based in Kings Langley. The solar was a large array of 24 panels, each 375W giving a total power of 9 kWp, connected to a Sofar 7.5 kW solar inverter. We handled the necessary

A recent install in Enfield gives us a good opportunity to show off the capability of our drone! Not only can we do accurate surveys ahead of an install, including close-ups on the condition of the roof, but we can follow up after an install to check everything looks good. Drone image of pitched

The energy crisis has paved the way for a decentralised energy economy

The UK’s recent fuel predicament led to a 1,500% spike in Google searches for electric vehicles (EVs) in September. So, it’s unsurprising to hear that after the gas crisis many people are now considering how to best reduce their transportation fuel bills, future proof their homes to replace their old gas or oil boilers and

Soon, your car might be able to power your house—here’s why that matters

Also known as V2G—or V2X—bidirectional charging means power can flow both into and out from an EV’s battery. When millions faced power outages in Texas following winter storms in February, Ryan O’Gorman drove the icy, “apocalyptic” streets and thought about electric vehicles. “You drive around and you see all these F-150s in the driveways, and

Wind and solar can supply most of world’s energy needs, most of the time, says study

Wind and solar power, alone, can meet more than 80 per cent of demand in many countries around the world without “crazy amounts” of storage or excess generating capacity, a new report has found. The study led by researchers at the University of California, Irvine, and published recently in Nature Communications argues that most of

Reasons to be hopeful: the climate solutions available now

We have every tool we need to tackle the climate crisis. Here’s what some key sectors are doing The climate emergency is the biggest threat to civilisation we have ever faced. But there is good news: we already have every tool we need to beat it. The challenge is not identifying the solutions, but rolling

Solar PV, energy storage and other green tech given business rates exemptions, relief in 2021 Budget

There was a record amount of rooftop solar deployed in Q3, with 97MW installed on homes and businesses around the UK. This constitutes more than 90% of the total solar PV deployed last quarter, according to new research figures from Solar Media and presented by Solar Energy UK, with 107MW installed overall. Across Q2 and

High power prices expected to continue following record-breaking Q3
