Introduction

RSUK Solar was recently approached by a homeowner based in Lincolnshire, to install a solar PV system at his domestic property.

The primary objectives of the installation were to help the homeowner reduce energy costs, power his hot tub sustainably, and future-proof his property for an eventual electric vehicle purchase. To accomplish these goals, the homeowner chose RSUK Solar, a renowned renewable energy solutions provider known for delivering high-quality solar PV installations in the region.

The Challenge

Peter Charles found himself confronted with a significant challenge as his electricity bills continued to escalate due to heavy dependence on grid electricity. The mounting energy expenses were a cause of concern for Peter, urging him to seek an alternative that would not only alleviate the financial burden but also align with his commitment to environmental sustainability.

Recognising the potential of renewable energy to drive positive change, Peter's focus was on finding a reliable option that could power his hot tub while reducing his carbon footprint. By powering his hot tub with solar energy, Peter aimed to indulge in relaxation without compromising his commitment to environmental responsibility.

Additionally, Peter was a forward-thinking individual who was keen on preparing his property for the future. He had plans to invest in an electric vehicle (EV) eventually and was determined to proactively future-proof his home for this upcoming purchase.

Understanding that integrating an EV into his lifestyle would require additional electricity consumption, Peter sought a solar PV system that could accommodate this increased demand. He envisioned a solar solution that would not only cater to his current energy needs but also be scalable and adaptable to accommodate the future requirements of his EV charging.

The Solution

RSUK Solar recommended a comprehensive solar PV installation to meet the homeowner’s specific needs. The solution involved installing 25 high-efficiency solar panels on the large garage rooftop, each panel boasting a capacity of 460W. The combined capacity of the system reached 11.5 kW, providing an optimal balance between energy generation and usage.

Careful consideration was given to the positioning of the panels, strategically placing them to maximise sunlight exposure and optimise the system's overall performance. The installation process also integrated the solar system seamlessly with the existing garage structure, ensuring both functionality and aesthetics.

The Results

The solar PV installation generated outstanding results for the homeowner including a significant reduction in energy costs as the solar system substantially decreased his dependence on grid electricity. This translated into substantial savings on his energy bills, contributing to long-term economic benefits.

Additionally, the clean energy generated by the solar system now powers the homeowner’s hot tub, providing him with a sustainable and eco-friendly solution for his relaxation needs.

As a forward-thinking homeowner, Mr. Smith is also well-prepared for the future, with surplus energy production allowing him to seamlessly transition to an electric vehicle when the time comes. This not only optimises his property's energy usage but also reinforces his commitment to sustainable living and environmental responsibility.

Our Customer Said...

“Many thanks for the supply and fitting of our 11Kw solar panel system in May 2022. The fitting crew were prompt polite and professional at all times, a credit to your company.

We have exceeded our energy production over and above your conservative estimates. Most companies would exaggerate the energy production just to seal the sale. We felt at all times that the advice and recommendations on what type of panel and inverters we should have were made with honesty and integrity.

In conclusion we can thoroughly recommend RSUK for solar panel installation. We would stress at this point we have no commercial or financial tie to your company.

We wish you well in your future solar panel sale and installations. We are more than happy to recommend your company at any time in the future.”
