Energy from the sun can be captured in two ways, in panels or tubes to either generate a hot water supply or create electricity, while photovoltaic panels capture the sun’s energy in photovoltaic cells to create electricity.
This electrical energy can be used directly and immediately to power equipment or recharge batteries. Because solar thermal and solar photovoltaic systems use a renewable source of energy - the sun - both reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a reduction in heating, hot water and electricity bills.
We have installed one of the UK’s largest solar arrays at our head office in Coventry. Solar power and CHP technologies are being installed at our offices in Tipton and Nottingham and solar panels in Kingswinford. We can do the same for your development whatever the size.
