Solar Panel Clean

Solar Panel Clean Domestic and Commercial Solar panel clean, Conservatories, Windows, UPVC gutters and Fascia Boards. Our technicians use the latest cutting-edge German pure water systems. The system uses filters to strip tap water of naturally occurring minerals. Once the minerals are removed (a process of de-ionization), the water dries spot-free leaving surfaces professionally clean without the use of chemical additives.

Worlds largest Solar Power Station

The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is a solar thermal power station in the California Mojave Desert, 40 miles (64 km) south west of Las Vegas, with a planned gross capacity of 392 megawatts. The £1.5 billion facility consists of three power plants with mirrors that focus sunlight on to boilers at the top of the towers, creating steam which drives turbines generating enough electricity to power 140,000 California...

Eden Project Goes Geothermal

In partnership with Cornwall-based EGS Energy, The Eden Project in Cornwall planning permission has been granted for a 3-4MW geothermal power plant on the Eden Project site, taking energy from the heat in underground granite rocks. Geothermal energy is the heat in the rock beneath our feet. Worldwide, natural spas have been enjoyed for millenia, and in active volcanic and tectonic areas, like Italy, hot rocks have been producing power for a hundred years. Advances in engineering mean that lower temperature resources in geologically stable...

Heat pumps extract warmth from cold water

Posted by on Mar 10, 2015 in Renewables | 0 comments

Heat pumps extract warmth from cold water The residents of Drammen have rather an unusual way of keeping warm.   The county capital, 40 miles west of Oslo in Norway, extracts most of the heat needed to insulate its houses, offices and factories against the biting Nordic cold from the local fjord, or more precisely from the water held within it. Averaging 8C throughout the year – it’s literally cold enough to take your breath away. So cold, in fact, that open water swimmers classify it as freezing. But somehow, an open-minded...

Google Solar Farm

Google investing in Residential Solar If you are still not convinced that Solar Power is the future – what if Internet Search Giant Google pledges $1.25 Billion in large scale energy projects including a Solar Farm. In April 2014 Google signed an agreement to put $100 million into a fund with SunPower Corporation to finance residential solar installations. This will make it easier for thousands of homeowners to power their homes with renewable energy. With an additional commitment of $150 million from SunPower, the fund will total $250...

Solar is still Cheaper that Gas and Oil

Solar is still cheaper than Gas and Oil, With More Innovations To Come Solar power has come a long way in a short period of time. Just five years ago, the bulk of the energy community viewed it as being unreliable, expensive and difficult to source. Without massive government subsidies, utilities generally shunned solar, sticking with more traditional and reliable generation, namely, coal and natural gas. This was despite fossil fuels trading at or near record high costs amid strong demand and tight supplies. If solar couldn’t even beat...

Green homes are warmer homes

How the UK can move to a low-carbon heat system A recent report by the WWF highlights the importance of Renewable energy, namely Solar PV Panels and Solar Hot Water. High levels of energy efficiency As a rule, the buildings we are paying to heat in the UK are very inefficient. Because so much heat is lost, we need a large amount of energy just to provide an adequate temperature. This means that families and businesses are wasting huge amounts of energy, and money.Big improvements to the energy efficiency of the UK building stock are a...

Balancing renewable energy costs and optimizing energy mix

Balancing Renewable Energy Costs Increasing reliance on renewable energies is the way to achieve greater CO2 emission sustainability and energy independence. As such energies are yet only available intermittently and energy cannot be stored easily, most countries aim to combine several energy sources in order to balance Renewable Energy Costs. In a new study in EPJ Plus, French scientists have come up with an open source simulation method to calculate the actual cost of relying on a combination of electricity sources. Bernard Bonin from the...

Hot Summer gives Solar Power Bounty

Posted by on Jul 24, 2014 in Renewables | 0 comments

Hot summer gives Solar Power Bounty     Weeks of strong sunshine across much of Britain and a surge in photovoltaic (PV) panels installations has resulted in the record generation of solar power, according to figures from government and the industry. There are now over 450,000 solar installations, almost all on household roofs, which together have a capacity of 2.7GW. On a sunny day solar power is able to generate around 2% of UK demand over a 24-hour period. But because solar panels generate electricity in peak daylight hours,...
