At English Eco Energy, we are always striving to offer you the lastest developments in Eco Energy.
You do not have to be restricted to installation on roof tops, purpose built installations that are designed with the solar panel in mind are fast becoming popular as they are more aesthetically pleasing. As well providing a practical solution, they also provide you with a tax free income.

The immerSUN monitors the electricity which is about to be exported to the grid and diverts it to the immersion heater. It then automatically directs any excess generated electricity, not used by the house, to the immersion heater in the hot water cylinder.
If the load from the house increases, eg. the washing machine is turned on, the immerSUN will reduce the amount sent to heat water to help you maintain independence from the grid.

How it Works
Despite UK voltage being supplied at around 240 Volts electrical equipment, including everyday household appliances, actually works most efficiently at around 220 Volts. This not only means an over-supply of energy costing you substantial money, it can also damage and decrease the lifespan of your electrical goods.
English Eco Energy working in partnership with EEI UK Ltd has established itself over the years with commercial and domestic installations. Registered with the relevant UK governing bodies, ensures a quality service and peace of mind with every installation.
Q. How much space on my roof do I need for a solar PV installation?
Grid connected systems start from around 1kW rating, this occupies approximately 8.2 square metres on your roof.
Q. How much electricity does a PV system output?
For every kW rating installed on a South facing roof the system will generate approximately 800 kWh per annum
Q. How much does a Solar PV system cost?
Prices start from around £3500, dependent on a number of key factors relating to the installation site.
Q. Are there any grants available to cover the cost of installation? Following the introduction of the Feed in Tariff (FIT) scheme, generally, there are no longer funding grants available. However, this may vary in some regions; we can clarify this for you relative to your location.
Q. Will I be eligible for the new Feed in Tariff (FIT)?
Yes, the FIT is available on all Solar PV installations, with variable rates based on the circumstances of the installation, providing the company is MCS Accredited.
Q. What rate would I receive on the Feed in Tariff (FIT)?
The rates vary according to the size of the system and the type of property where it is installed. Generally, for systems up to 4kW rating installed on an existing property, the FiT rate is 15.44p/kWh for every kWh generated.
Q. Do I need to inform my electricity supplier?
We will inform them once the installation is complete. For systems larger than 16 Amps we will require permission in advance from the network operator.
Q. Can I export any of the electricity I generate?
Yes, all unused electricity will automatically be exported. Your electricity company will fit an export meter or they will pay you based on estimated export rates (usually 50%).
Q. How much will I be paid for electricity I export?
The rate most commonly paid is 4.64p per kWh exported into the National Grid. This rate may vary dependent on the electricity company.
Q. What is a kWh?
A kWh is "kilo watt hour" which is the standard used in all electricity bills as a "unit". All electrical appliances have a rating in kWh; an appliance rated at 1kW, will consume 1kWh (1 unit) for every hour it is on.
Q. How does the electricity generated get in to the internal system?
As part of our installation of the system we will connect into your consumer unit, this can only be done by a qualified electrician. The electricity generated will then be passed into the internal electricity system, to be used wherever it is needed.
Q. What happens during a mains power cuts?
Standard solar PV systems do not operate during power cuts for safety reasons. However, it is possible to upgrade the system to enable the system to automatically disconnect your property from the grid and to provide power from the panels and a battery back up in your property during power cuts.
