Renewable Energy in Brecon

With rising oil prices and energy bills many home owners and businesses in Brecon are giving serious consideration into the alternative; green energy.

With the recently announced Renewable Heat Incentive scheme many businesses and homes are now more incentivized than ever before to adopt renewable energy sources and reduce their carbon footprint. The Renewable Heat Incentive scheme has recently been introduced to help ensure the UK meets its 2020 carbon emissions target of making efficiency savings by 20% and generating 12% of its total energy supply through renewable sources.

Solar PV System

Solar PV (Photovoltaics) technology is one of the most common ideas of renewable energy. Solar panels are fitted to properties and buildings with a significant roof area, whereby solar thermal radiation is converted both into solar electricity and also solar hot water.  Through the Feed in Tariffs scheme owners of a solar PV system will receive an income for all of the electricity they generate for a period of 25 years. Broken down there are two simple tariffs. The Generation Tariff is a fixed income that is earned for every kilowatt hour of electricity that is produced and used, whilst the Export Tariff allows solar panel owners the opportunity to sell any surplus solar electricity back to the grid.

Wind Turbines

Wind turbines are another typical form of renewable energy. Many sites and areas that are exposed directly to the wind and are clear from any obstructions are ideal for this form of green energy.

WDS Green Energy also supplies and installs underfloor heating and heat pumps in the Brecon area. Ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps act by converting heat in the local environment, whether from the ground, water or air into hot water and heating to a home or building.
