Feed it Green to install solar system for new Police HQ

Feed it Green are delighted to be supplying a solar PV system for the new command centre for Merseyside Police.

We’ll upload a full case study to this website once the work is complete.

Morgan Sindall is tipped to take the contract to build a £44m operational command centre for Merseyside Police in Speke.

The firm is said to have beaten rivals Laing O’Rourke and Wates for the job, according to sources close to the project. This could be the first of a bigger pipeline of work for the force.

The planned three-storey building will include changing accommodation, a gym, an armoury and equipment stores on the ground floor, with office accommodation for specialist units on the top two floors.

It forms part of a 10-year programme worth £130m to update and improve the force’s buildings, while saving running costs on the estate.

Home battery storage units have arrived

csm_Energy-accumulator-Sonnenbatterie_eco_4_096579507b[1]

The Sonnenbatterie  just one of the new efficient home battery storage units now available.

You can now reduce your electricity cost even further with a  Battery storage solution from Feed it green. The electricity that your solar panels generate but is not used can now be stored so that when you arrive home in the evening all of your electricity  is already safely gathered and stored.

meaning that you draw very little if any power from the grid and that your solar panel system can now meet your energy consumption demands, even when its dark outside.

How battery storage works:

Active energy manager

The smart meters of the Sonnenbatterie system detect when more solar power is available than is needed directly for self-consumption or charging the battery. To optimize self-consumption of the power from your solar power system, the Sonnenbatterie automatically switches on appliances through smart plugs. This allows high-power loads such as washing machines, dishwashers and electrical heaters to operate with surplus solar power during the day, with no need for you to be at home or look after this yourself. This also reduces your usage of costly grid power. The smart plugs can also be switched on manually at the appliance location or with the Sonnenbatterie mobile app, anytime and anywhere.

 

 

 

 

Battery storage is coming!!

tesla_powerwall_home_battery_main_0The next phase of the solar revolution is coming!!

Tessla have perfected their “Power wall” storage battery which  can store up to 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity – around an average family’s daily use –  The utility-scale battery consists of 100kWh blocks that can be grouped in packs to more than 10MW/h.

Prof Phil Taylor, director of Newcastle University’s Institute for Sustainability, believes the Power wall can be ‘transformative’.

“Energy storage with solar panels and home balancing, along with smart meters and flexible time of use tariffs empowers people to take an active role in managing their energy use.

The Power wall system comes with a 10 year guarantee and at a cost of around £2300.00. Which means that your annual feed in tariff payments will easily cover the purchase price during your feed in tariff deal.

Beat the feed in tariff cuts, get solar installed before 31st December 2015

HOUSEHOLD returns from solar panels are set to be slashed by almost 90 per cent in January and abolished by 2019 as part of new Government proposals. (Daily Express 2015).

Cuts to the feed-in tariff could slash payments for energy-generating homes down from as much as £495 a year to £64 a year from 2016. Existing installations and installations completed by the deadline 31st December this year will not be affected by the change, but future investment in solar panels is expected to rapidly decrease under the plans (DECC). Contact Feed it green today to guarantee your installation before the deadline. Currently the feed in tariff scheme  pays up to 12.9p per kWh of solar energy generated and used but is due to drop by up to 87% after the deadline. The suggested cuts would see tariff rates for domestic schemes drop to 1.63p/kWh.

Don’t lose out get in touch now to guarantee your government backed payments for the next 20 years.
