The one stop solar PV / solar thermal systems solar panel shop in GB.  For over 13 years solar panel experts, we have been supplying solar PV panels & solar heating panels – across UK & Ireland under UK solar subsidy schemes, eg, the solar Feed In Tariff (FIT) the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) and the (anticipated) Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Premium. All about solar panels – how they work – is our business. Purchase solar panels for home use or business use from Solartwin – the innovative UK solar panel manufacturer and dedicated solar installer. Install solar panels = save money + earn money from grants. Cut global warming: install solar panels. Read the amazing Solartwin story here.

Read laugh and decide whether UK’s ASA were right in banning “Zero Carbon Solar”…

Find out (solar video below) why Solartwin is better as a green solar heater with a mere 1.2 year carbon emissions payback.

Why does our logo now say “ASA BANNED”, after 12 years?

Solar surveys and solar quotes instantly.  Clear facts about solar panels = our mission.

Buy solar PV installations with minimum hassle. Just phone us now and we will quote you for your solar photovoltaic installation (generating electricity from solar panels) right away using aerial photographs – and for whatever solar PV technology you choose. Don’t worry, we can will discuss which solar panel options with youand the solar PV Feed in Tariffs subsidy scheme.

Your solar PV installation can be one of many solar panel brands. We offer leading solar PV brands including UK made Sharp PV’s, UK made   TG Solar, Caymax PV’s, Sanyo PV’s, Kyocera PV’s   are among the many types of PVs we fit. Our PV inverters include SMA, Fronius, and Eversolar inverters.

Rapid PV installations. Your solar PV installer will fit your solar electric power installation in 1-2 days, typically in one day. You can then generate FIT income and green electricity from your solar PV array. But buy now before the UK government turns the funding tap down. It is unlikely that solar grants will ever be higher. Once you are in UK’s FIT scheme you can claim an index linked subsidy for 25 years. Don’t miss today’s FIT generous funding boat for solar PV.

Or buy solar hot water heating to environmentally solar power your washing and bathing. Solartwin is simple, reliable and affordable solar energy. Solartwin have developed the main solar water heating innovation to emerge from the British Isles. “I think global and I act local – I prefer to heat my home’s hot water, powered by electricity by using homegrown solar panels”  are common themes from Solartwin’s green heating users. Our solar heating panels are designed and made in UK. (Note: you can specify grid connected UK made photovoltaic panels such as Sharp Solar PV panels and TG Solar PV panels for your electric grid connected PV installations too.) Reduce CO2 emissions. Use solar panel water heating systems.

Rapid solar heating installations using great local solar installers in UK. Your efficient solar thermal panel installer can usually install your PV pumped solar water heating panel in a day: half the time of most solar panel installations. Hassle free installations mean that you usually keep your hot water cylinder when fitting solar panels in less than a day. Or buy Solartwin DIY solar panels kits.

Award winning solar heating panels. Cutting edge solar panel design wins UK DTI “SMART Award”. Eco efficient solar panel technology – redesigned from scratch – Solartwin stops frozen solar panels bursting in winter. “I do not want to heat my home’s hot water using solar panels which need antifreeze chemicals, nor using one which wastes mains electricity” say Solartwin users.  Solar questions? See solar FAQ’s.

The best buy solar water heating systems must be zero carbon in operation. The ideal solar panel technology eliminates the environmental contradiction in conventional solar water eating. Old solar equipment burns mains electricity in its pumps and solar panel controls. But Solartwin’s cute solar pump is 100% solar electric powered: zero carbon operation, powered by solar electric (PV, photovoltaic) solar panels. “I would not want to heat my home’s hot water with solar panels which burn up extra fuel at a power station: environmentally, I want the best solar panel, is a common reason why people choose Solartwin. See YouTube for our latest videos on to perfect solar water heating technology by using PV electricity for pumping.

The best solar panels for sustainability. In a 2001 UK DTI report, called Side by Side Testing of Eight Solar Water Heating Systems, not all solar panels were found to be equal, even though most delivered similar amounts of net carbon savings. The issue was “net energy”. In terms of total sustainability, as judged by carbon clawback, which is a touchstone of sustainability in solar water heating systems, PV pumped Solartwin was by far the best performing solar water heating system – by a very big margin – and evacuated tubes were the worst performing solar heating systems on this key parameter.

Zero carbon operation makes the best solar panel systems. The UK DTI report’s carbon clawback averages were: Solartwin: 0% carbon clawback, 0ther flat plates: 17% carbon clawback and evacuated tubes: 23% carbon clawback. It is not advisable to buy solar panels which use any electricity at all. “I want to heat my home’s hot water with the best solar panels, solar panels which do not increase my mains electricity costs by one penny.” “I want PV powered solar heating, precisely because it has zero carbon operation” is the approach of most Solartwin solar water heating system users. (See video.)

The best solar heating system is also designed for safety. Experienced UK solar equipment suppliers, the careful way that we plumb Solartwin panels into hot water cylinders complies closely with UK’s Legionella Code L8, while most of the solar industry blatantly ignores this important national safety guidance. It show the power of solar industry pressure that Which? Magazine UK declined to publish concerns on this safety issue on early 2009, despite us briefing them, apparently following approaches from the Solar Trade Association. “I would be uncomfortable if I were to heat my home ‘s hot water with solar panels which breach UK HSE safety guidance. Safety guidance is there for a reason” is an example of a Solartwin user’s thinking.

Safer again than most solar thermal systems, Solartwin’s PV pumped solar heating system has lower voltages, lower solar panel pressures and even lower peak panel temperatures: the solar hot water in the solar panel is non-boiling in normal operation. Solartwin also has no large smashable glass bits: ideal solar for DIY.

Best buy solar water heating business” according to Ethical Consumer! Socially active solar heating panel suppliers in UK, we bank at the Co-Op, pass B&Q’s rigorous quality & ethical audit. We support: Ashton Hayes Zero Carbon Village, Centre for Alternative Technology, donated a solar DIY heating panels kit to Chester Catholic High School’s Classroom for the Future. See our commercial solar website. “I like to heat my home’s hot water using Solar Keymark quality solar panels which are not just officially accredited, but which are also actually acclaimed” is a Solartwin users approach.
