ROOF TILES WITH A DIFFERENCE
(PHOTOVOLTAICS AND THERMAL CAPTURE BUILT-IN)
Photovoltaic (PV) panels are nothing new; they are solar panels which can be just bolted-onto a roof. Typically, they are aesthetically challenged!
SolteQ roof-tiles have high-performance PV cells and thermal capture capabilities built-in ... and they look impressive.
Once you have a SolteQ PV roof, you are open to a range of technology options for reducing or eliminating utility bills . . .
London receives energy from the sun (sunshine!) at a rate of 100 Watts per square metre of horizontal surface. Photovoltaics harness this power and convert it into electricity.
Continue to use your own electricity after sunset by storing the electricity you generated throughout the day.
Under each roof-tile is a layer of warm air which can be transferred to the interior of the house.
Ice has heat! Anything above absolute-zero (minus 273 degrees C) has heat. Heat from the air outside the house can be transferred to the inside of the house using a heat-pump.
TURN YOUR HOUSE INTO A MACHINE
Each house has it's own energy profile. How big is your house? How well is your house insulated? How many people live with you? We calculate how much energy you use.
Your house is an important asset with hugh potential to lower your outgoings by reducing or eliminating utility bills. We calculate how much potential YOUR house has.
An entry level system could be simply installing a new roof with high-efficiency photovoltaic (PV) cells. This would not only generate enough electricity to power lighting and electrical gadgets, but the roof would actually look good!
Installation is key to your satisfaction. Our installation team are qualified engineers who assemble the system components on-site and ensure that the system as a whole works as we intended it to.
Power your lighting and electrical gadgets by generating your own electricity using modern, highly efficient
photovoltaic (PV) roof tiles. Hold the excess in storage units for overnight use.
Heat the water in your storage tank using our thermal transfer technologies, together with the electricity you generate.
All-year-round heating can be yours, whether you use underfloor heating, radiators or air-conditioning systems.
Use your own electricity to power not only your lighting and electrical gadgets, but also to heat your hot-water and your central-heating using your existing hot-water tank.
Even without the electrical advantages of SolteQ roof-tiles, heat-pumps can transfer heat from your roof into your rooms, AND raise the temperature of your hot-water.
Use your own electricity to power your lighting and electrical gadgets. Use heat-pumps and your own electricity to satisfy your hot-water and central-heating requirements.
Once you're covered for lighting, gadgets, heating and hot-water, any surplus electricity can be used to charge an electric car and feed-back into the national grid.
Using a combination of your own electricity, heat-pumps (& optional log-fire) you can become self-sufficient in household energy.
Geothermal energy need not be confined to Iceland. It is perfectly possible to extract heat from the ground for use in your house.
We understand that the world of energy is changing. A more diverse, hybrid, approach is emerging.
We are offering the chance to become self-sufficent in household energy . . . even in challenging environments!
Why? because oil & gas is running-out
... probably in your lifetime, but certainly in the lifetime of your children!
"Our energy sector is changing fundamentally. Two-thirds of our existing power stations are expected to close by 2030 as our coal, nuclear, and oldest gas fired power stations reach the end of their lives."
National Infrastructure Commission Report (March 2016)
The usual options are not always viable anymore.
"EDF finance chief quits ahead of Hinkley Point decision."

For the year 2015, the average bill in the UK was £584 for electricity and £715 for gas. That's a total annual cost of nearly £1300.
Department of Energy & Climate Change
If you switched from a gas-powered boiler and gas cooker to electric, you can save neary all of that £1300 with SolteQ every year.
The average UK motorist spends over £2,000 on fuel for their car.
Switch to an electric car and you can save nearly all of that £2,000 with SolteQ every year.
