Return is calculated using combined bill savings and subsidy earnings. Bill savings are calculated using estimated energy usage and either the electricity price at the time of installation (20 October, 2014) or, for our heating products, the existing fuel type available to the property.
The homeowner was keen to look at ways to save money on high electricity bills, and to maximise the use of the free electricity generated from solar PV. We surveyed the property for solar panels, ensuring that our designs met the customer brief of keeping the appearance uniform.
We installed an efficient 285w Seraphim PV panel, with extended product guarantees, to provide greater peace of mind and to provide a higher output than a standard solar panel. We also installed an Optimmersion wireless controller which diverts excess solar energy to the immersion heater. The Optimmersion will maximise the use of the solar energy in the home and help reduce water heating bills.
