Massive gas price rises make solar an even better choice.

Filed under: Latest News

Sudden hikes in gas prices now mean that half of Britain’s households are now facing a £250 annual rise in energy bills, so how about simply buying less energy from the utilities? As a a renewable energy choice, solar water heating is householder’s top “one-in-the-eye” for the energy utilities, because it cuts energy use, future proofs your home and it will do your bit for the environment.

Solartwin solar water heating systems have lower maintenance requirements than most and it can be either DIY, or installed. We can advise you on which choice would suit you best.

“ Zero carbon” is one particular green energy saving solution that Solartwin users love. That is because our solar electric pump resolves the environmental contradiction that was the Achilles heel of conventional solar: that of using mains electricity to harvest renewable energy to let you burn less gas. Solartwin offers a 20% better environmental footprint than if it were designed more traditionally to run off mains electricity. This is because your solar hot water is pumped using solar electricity – all of which is simply generated on your roof.

Solartwin’s prices are very competitive, starting at £3599 installed, including VAT. Alternatively, DIY kits cost only £2599. We keep Solartwin’s costs competitive by quoting over the phone, often viewing an online aerial photo of your home as we speak together. Phone quotations also cut the environmental impact of your inquiry about solar by simply getting rid of the need to survey by car!

With domestic energy bills on the rise by up to 35%, solar has never before made more sense. If you’d like to speak to someone who is already using Solartwin, I’ll gladly put you in touch. Or call us on 0344 567 9032 for an instant solar panel quote.
