This Staffordshire home owner approached EnergyMyWay wanting a high energy yield from Solar PV Panels, as the property’s electricity use was due to increase with other planned improvements. We recommended looking at a system that will contribute to hot water production as well as electricity, to give less reliance on the grid and to future-proof the property .
EnergyMyWay received DNO approval to install up to 5 kWp of Solar PV Panels. The solar panels were installed on the garage roof and we included an Immersion controller, which diverts any surplus energy from the solar panels, to be used for water heating.
