It's about being able to do more for the environment
Keen to try and get their house to allow a low carbon footprint, Michael Hominick and his family worked with us to install Solar PV and a sonnen battery into their beautiful home in Wokingham Berkshire.

As well as wanting to generate their own power to save money instead of purchasing from the grid, their reasons for investing in renewable energy was primarily a green one.

Michael said: My reasons for making an environmental stand is simply due to the dangerous rate of climate change, the whole world needs to be doing more and I feel the country does need to move quicker towards electrification. I wanted to go ahead with this project because it’s about being able to do more for the environment.

When I got the phone call from SolarCentric, I had a really good experience and then on the Zoom call, there was a 3D render of the house where we were able to discuss efficiency of the panels and work through what my options and preferences were, so I was very pleased with the consultation.

 

Everything happened the way you guys said it would, even in lockdown without the face to face visit, it all worked really well.

 

Michael explained what his favourite feature was from his new system and said he really likes monitoring how much the battery is charging during different times of the day. Michael can see how much power is being used overnight when the sun is not shining and optimise how much he can draw from the battery.

When we asked about his children’s understanding of their new environmentally-friendly system and what it means to educate our next generation, Michael proudly said:

They are really excited about it as well as myself! They are only little, so I explain in simple terms of course, but they understand how different energy is used and I have shown them how the panels work and they are really excited about it which is sweet. We walk rather than drive to school as well, so we really do try and get these habits established early with our children and it’s nice to think they will grow up in a house that is solar powered.

Overall, I have to say the service was excellent and the after care, I am already in discussions about upgrading my battery with SolarCentric for various reasons and I know the team are there to see that through, so that’s really good.

Excellent end to end service!

Robert Barker | Hull Yorkshire

Another satisfied client
With a goal to be more energy efficient, SolarCentric were able to install and upgrade Robert Barker’s existing Solar PV system, enabling him to unlock all renewable energy benefits.

He now owns his very own SolarEdge inverter, and with this intelligent piece of equipment, he is able to use the app-based monitoring platform which allows you to see your panels output on an individual panel basis.

Robert has certainly created a greener home and if you’re interested in our products and the idea of providing your own clean energy within your property, take a quick read of his positive review of SolarCentric’s service, from start to finish:

 

Robert said: It has taken less than a month from my initial enquiry to the completion of my solar battery installation and at every stage of the process SolarCentric have been totally professional and modern in their approach.

 The essential information for the project was gathered using an online questionnaire with a follow-up Zoom conference where John Bloomfield talked in detail through the options.

His fully documented email quotation followed the next day with the online Contract. 26 days later the installation team arrived and even under Covid-19 conditions, they provided an exemplary service.

Hats off to the SolarCentric team for a superb job, well done!

 

It was our pleasure, Robert.

Peter Gilbert | Llangarron

Peter Gilbert and his partner connected with SolarCentric to action their green ambitions to create a more energy efficient home. Since leaving their last house to build a sustainable home, their entire objective has been to keep their running cost down and lower the environmental impact. Their past experience with properties has definitely taught them the importance of saving energy for future financial security and how to do it an environmentally safe way.

Peter said: We always had our mind set on creating our own home one day and putting as much renewable materials into it, so this has been a fulfilling experience. My friend also inspired me with his own new build, but we were determined to put renewable technology into our property in order to keep our running cost down and have it benefit the environment.

With the help of SolarCentric, we now have 29 solar panels, (as our house is very large) and we have a SolarEdge inverter, all the power optimisers and a Sonnen battery.

“SolarCentric’s service was very professional, everything was structured and executed appropriately and the support we’ve had so far has been great

With their green system, they have only bought 7% from the grid, this is an impressive amount and evident that they are achieving their goals and capitalising their renewable energy system.

He said: What’s great about these green products is that so far, we have not taken hardly any power from the grid. It looks like we will be self-sufficient in the summer and we will probably export half of what we generate. It’s always difficult to know and estimate properly in the winter, but nonetheless our battery is running our heat pump and we know it is generating enough water for the both of us.

“What really pushed us to create a green home was our previous house, it was run down, leaking and we ended up spending £3,000 and were never warm! But because of SolarCentric, our smart home won’t have that problem”

Recently our house was air tested and the installation beat two passing houses in our street, so in that respect we are really looking forward to the wintertime to see how well our system performs.

Overall, we were very happy with SolarCentric’s easy and approachable service and faultless installation process. We would definitely give them a 10!

Tony and Aras' Grand Design, Henley-on-Thames

Many will know Grand Designs as the longest and most highly acclaimed property show in the UK, hosted by Kevin McCloud, a former theatre designer with an eye for sustainable and minimalistic architecture. In every episode, you are guaranteed extravagant, unusual and often ambitious architectural projects.

If you’re a die-hard Grand Designs fan and fanatic about green homes, be sure to catch Tony and Aras Searby’s property from Henley-on-Thames. You will find SolarCentric making an appearance also, featuring our partnership with the eco-friendly couple to install an efficient-energy system for their state-of-the-art homebuilding project.

The foundations
Showcasing their grand design, Tony and Aras will take us through the progression of their self-build from start to finish, noting all the groundwork and creative elements within their budget. The site will exhibit all the sustainable materials involved, with our Solar PV system being one of them.

The panels that were installed will be displayed on their very flat and extremely spacious roof, the couple explained how SolarCentric shared the same vision and really took on board all the elements that were required:

Tony and Aras said: “The two things that have been faultless with SolarCentric was the cost and communication. SolarCentric have been helpful in both installing the system for us and negotiating some very good discounts with various suppliers for the solar panels and the Sonnen battery.”

An environmentally safe haven
The house is now completed to their green standard and they express how talking through everything with SolarCentric and getting a coordinated system together was crucial for their resourceful home.

Tony and Aras said: “The main product was the solar panels which are currently hidden on our flat roof. The design element worked really well, despite an angled roof being more sufficient to attract sunlight, we do have a lot of space on our roof, so it was important for us to have more panels than usual.”

Their response to the system was very positive, they mentioned how the system uses electricity effectively and gave us 10 out of 10 for our service and for taking their budget into much consideration.

“SolarCentric have been so easy to connect with throughout this entire process which has been very reassuring, and we absolutely feel that SolarCentric took on all the elements that were required for this project.”

It has been a pleasure working with the energy-efficient couple and we look forward to seeing their innovative and revolutionary design on the big screen soon.

David and Tussie, Cheltenham

'Our choices were not based on how long it would take to see a profit, but simply because
it was the right thing to do'
David and Tussie Myerson have always had a leaning towards environmental issues, they are open to the fact that they are by no means at the extreme of the movement, but nonetheless, they wanted to make sure that any comforts would be managed by a renewable and sustainable resource. Honoured to have been part of their energy-efficient journey, this is what the forward-thinking couple had to say about their experience with SolarCentric:

“With the way that energy prices are likely to go, we feel that we have gone a long way to protect our future finances as well as protecting the environment”

SolarCentric were incredibly helpful in advising and liaising with all the partners across the system. The solar roof and battery wall were accompanied by charge points for electric vehicles, ASHP for underfloor heating, an MVHR system to maximise the efficiency of the system and a rainwater harvesting roof, so there is no gas coming into our house. More than this, the partnering team with battery supplier Sonnen, ensured that we had an integrated system installed.

“We have to praise the whole team at SolarCentric for the responsiveness and professionalism involved”

To be part of the SolarCentric scheme was very exciting, as we were aware that we were pushing the boundaries by installing a new 3-phase system, but we love the way in which the system can benefit and maximise the use of technology and the environment, which also gives us real-time access to information via various apps. Not to mention the real benefits of cost savings and maximising the way in which the energy is used in the house or put in/taken out of the grid at the right time. Just a huge thank you to SolarCentric who were instrumental to the whole project, we know we would not have been able to achieve the end result without them driving the various parts and staying on top of it.

“The quality of the workmanship was superb, we can’t fault it – the installation was painless and it all just, happened”

SolarCentric made themselves available at all times and have been key to the whole project. We were fortunate to be building a house from scratch, so we were able to integrate the panels in a way where they are not even seen from the road. That said, the array can be seen from higher buildings around and they look great. We are now somewhat obsessed with the data we are getting off the apps and look forward to sunny and gloomy days alike. It’s satisfying to know that our solar roof and battery wall are quietly taking care of our CO2 footprint and creating the energy we need to live our life.

We really have to give SolarCentric ten out of ten from beginning to end and would happily recommend them to anyone looking to install a system like ours.
