Welcome to a series of four short video clips (in drop down list from main menu) designed to show what you can do in your home to produce electricity and/or hot water for your use.
The information and views provided are based on actual use by Chew Magna residents who have installed these technologies and have been using them for a few years. This means you are getting actual operational experience and not just marketing views from the equipment supplier!
Some of the issues raised will be specific to the location and not associated directly with the technology and these will be highlighted.
The range of renewable technologies covered are:
- Photovoltaic (PV) with battery storage;
- Air source heat pump (ASHP);
- Ground source heat pump (GSHP);
- Solar thermal hot water (STHW):
The suitability for your situation will depend on a number of factors, including house construction, location and financial aspects. Remember that while each technology has a payback tariff that provides an income, there is an upfront capital installation cost that may not suit your particular circumstances.
