Solar Thermal Commercial

Solar thermal is used to provide hot water for commercial use. There could be several uses for this. In situations where large amounts of hot water is required for heating and for kitchens and bathrooms, for example factories, community centres, camp sites, schools or farms this goes a long way to offsetting heating bills. The heat from the solar thermal system pre-heats the water and the additional heat source brings it up to temperature.

Solar thermal is ideal for use with swimming pools. The water temperature is ideal for this use.

The Renewable Heat Incentive pays the user as heat is produced at a rate of 8.9p/kW hour.

Better Energy Control offers full installation services from initial consultation o final commissioning and offer bespoke recommendations for your situation.

Solar PV Commercial

Solar PV is increasingly being used in commercial and industrial applications to offset electricity bills and provide a steady income. If you own or run a large commercial premises such as a factory, farm, bus station or car show room, the chances are that you use a lot of electricity. Every day during daylight hours, a ongoing, reliable form of energy is pouring onto your property which could be converted into electricity. All it takes is installing solar panels and your electricity bill will plummet. What’s more you will be paid a tariff for the electricity that you generate. The rate depends on the size of the installed capacity. The rates are as follows:

Total installed capacity (kW)   Generation tariff with eligibility date 1 Nov 2012 – 30 April 2013  
<4kW (new build and retrofit) 15.44p/kWh
>4-10kW 13.99p/kWh
>10-50kW 13.03p/kWh
stand-alone 7.1p/kWh

 

What is more, your grid connection is basically a two way system so electricity can be fed onto the national grid as well as from it. What this means is that you will effectively own your own power station and you will be paid a further 4.5p/kW hour.

Better Energy Control can offer a full installation service from initial consultation to feasibility studies with the local DNO, full design and installation and connection tests to comply with G59/2-1 testing legislation.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps use latent heat in the air to heat water to provide space heating and hot water. They can be used on commercial or domestic premises. Air Source Heat Pumps need to be optimised with the property’s heat load and when correctly optimised work incredibly efficiently. Air Source Heat Pumps have a co-efficient of performance of up to 3.5. This means that for every kilowatt hour of electricity that is used to run the pump, 3.5 kilowatt hours of heat are obtained from the heat pump. No other heat source can claim this level of efficiency.

Air Source Heat Pumps work most effectively with underfloor heating can be used in tandem with solar thermal and/or solar pv to further increase efficiency.

Better Energy Control offers full installation services from initial consultation to final commissioning. For a free consultation please call 0131 443 3972 or email michael@betterenergycontrol.co.uk

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps use latent heat in the ground to heat water to provide space heating and hot water. They can be used on commercial or domestic premises.
