Using quality products from leading manufacturers we pride ourselves on providing high standards of installation and service to our customers, and as accredited MCS installers you can be assured your project will be fully compliant.
Solar photovoltaic technology is an incredibly easy way of producing clean and sustainable energy with the long-term benefit of a tax-free financial return.
Not all Solar PV Systems are the same the choice and location of panels. Inverter options means that the design, specification and correct selection of components is so important, if your PV System is to deliver the maximum efficiencies over its lifetime.
All DW Energy’s solar PV Systems are individually designed and specified to your exact requirements and installed in accordance with the requirements of the Micro-generation Certification Scheme. We pride ourselves on taking the time to explain all the available options and how the system works.
Our systems are installed by our sister company DW Electrical whose approved electricians are specifically trained to install Solar PV, and as an NICEIC approved contractors, all our installations are designed and installed to conform to the national wiring regulations for electrical installations (BS7671).
Health and Safety
We insist on the highest standards of health and safety. We take the safety of our staff and sub-contractors extremely seriously and all our operatives hold Construction Safety Certification Scheme (CSCS) Cards as an absolute minimum.
How do Solar PV panels work?
The sun gives off light, even on overcast days the photovoltaic cells on the panels turn the light into DC electricity, this then flows into an inverter which converts the DC electricity to AC so that it is compatible for normal use, this electricity is then fed through a meter and then into your home’s consumer unit where it can be used by you. Any excess electricity you have generated that is not used you is fed to the grid.
Integrated PV panels
Roof Integrated Photovoltaics are fast becoming a popular and cost effective solution for new build projects and should be considered to maximise the benefit of the free electricity generated.
There are various options available including roof integrated PV tiles and roof integrated PV panels, which are not only aesthetically pleasing but also act as a replacement to roof tiles and can be easily fitted using an interlocking frame system. Roof Integrated tiles are also perfect for roof replacement schemes and investment now can generate a guaranteed income for the next 25 years.
DW Energy roof Integrated systems have been developed for use on sloping tiled and slate roofs, with one of the highest power densities available on the market, the PV panels integrate into the roof rather than being mounted on top.
This unique system high quality PV products with a market proven fixing system and can also be used as a ‘total roof’ solution. It is ideally suited for new builds or re-roofing as it is attached straight to the roof battens and can be used with a wide range of conventional roof tiles.
- MCS approved
- No extra planning – system sits flush with the roof
- No specialist skills – all roofing work is carried out by the roofing contractor
- High power output – around 7 square meters per kWp
- Power output – guaranteed for 25 years
- DW Energy Roof Integrated PV System are certified to IEC 61215 and IEC 61730
Integrated PV panels
The Solar Feed in Tariff (FIT) scheme was introduced in April 2010 to encourage use of renewable technology by small-scale users. It covers both photovoltaic solar panels and small wind power systems. To find out more, click here to download our free handout.
