A homeowner in Ulverston, Cumbria, contacted us to discuss installing solar panels on their home to increase their home’s energy efficiency and sustainability. The client had already installed a heat pump and was looking to further reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills by integrating solar energy into their system.

The customer wanted the system to do multiple things. Firstly, to maximise energy efficiency by utilising solar energy to power the home and the existing heat pump. Secondly, to reduce energy costs by generating and storing renewable energy. Thirdly, to implement a system to monitor energy production and consumption. Finally, to increase sustainability by reducing reliance on non-renewable energy sources.

After a free site survey, we suggested a system made up of 10 high-efficiency solar panels, a battery storage system, and an advanced monitoring system. The solar panels were strategically placed on the roof to ensure the best sunlight exposure. The battery storage system was designed to store excess energy generated during the day for use during the night or on cloudy days. The monitoring system was installed to provide real-time data on energy production, consumption, and storage levels.

The installation began with a thorough site assessment and design to determine the best placement for the solar panels. The layout was customised to maximise energy capture while maintaining aesthetic appeal. The installation process included setting up the 10 high-efficiency solar panels with a total capacity of 4.15kW and integrating a 8kWh battery storage system to ensure continuous energy supply. A state-of-the-art monitoring system was set up, accessible via mobile and web applications. Special attention was given to ensure seamless integration with the existing heat pump to optimise overall energy usage.

The homeowner was very pleased with the solar panel installation, telling us “The team was professional and knowledgeable, and the installation was seamless. The combination of solar panels, battery storage, and a monitoring system has significantly reduced our energy costs and carbon footprint. We highly recommend their services!”
