Our Modular Car Port: Helping Local Industries Decarbonise the UK Economy

We can finally share information on our Welsh designed and manufactured solar car port, with integrated state-of-the-art battery technology.

SolarCentric have partnered with Solarwatt, Centregreat Group, SPECIFIC and Hayes Engineering to remove urban EV barriers, future proof EV demand and offer 100% renewable energy.

People are now becoming more accustomed to green energy, with clean air being a top priority for, urgent health, climate and development action. This EV car port certainly leads the way for local industries to power towards a greener future.

To read more detailed information about how our modular design can suit all applications, our Car Port page is now live for you to visit.

Two is better than one, and battery storage is always a great way to compliment any Solar PV system. Batteries are emerging as one of the key solutions to integrate efficient carbon-neutral systems for any home or business, because when there is excess power in the property, the battery will store it ready to be used at a later date. This can really reduce your grid dependency and your electricity bill.

Batteries are paving the way towards an ozone-friendly future
As the world starts transitioning away from fossil fuels, we acknowledge and appreciate the initial stages of its invention. The first real development of batteries date as far back as 250 BC, known as the Baghdad Battery. Fast forward to the 21st century, batteries primarily powered our phones and computers but with advance technology they are now powering our cars, homes and businesses too.

It’s a great leap forward and we have certainly come a long way with the ever-growing development in batteries. With the correct battery and solar combination, you can really make a difference to the environment and enjoy an abundance of free/low-cost solar electricity, especially in the summer going into winter when solar doesn’t particularly perform as well. Now with advance technology, batteries can control the time for when you buy your energy physically from the grid which is a great function to have as lots of energy companies offer cheap night-time tariffs. Note that buying low-cost energy when carbon intensity on the grid is low is a profitable gain, a great way to control your energy cost and to reduce your carbon footprint.

Most batteries are software controlled, meaning that as technology improves, the battery does not become out-dated. This is really important as technology is moving quickly and in some parts of the UK, energy providers are already trialling different ways to use batteries. These trials include load balancing and optimising when you buy and sell energy from the grid.

Overall, these are worthy trials because wholesale energy prices fluctuate throughout the day typically increasing at peak times and reducing at night. In the future, we are likely to see a more renewable-fuelled world with supporting software that further utilises batteries.
