What is renewable energy?
Renewable heating and electricity are produced from resources that don’t run out, or damage the environment. The most popular domestic electricity generating technology is Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels, although there are domestic scale wind and water technologies available. The most popular renewable heating technologies are Heat Pumps (air source and ground source) or Biomass heating units. These would usually replace existing oil boilers to run your home heating system.
Solar PV is a simple to fit and provides instant benefits, such as free daytime electricity or hot water. Heating systems can be a bit more complex, but also offer great benefits, especially to homes currently relying on oil heating systems.
