Green Energy in Carmarthenshire

With climate change and the environment being hot topics at the moment, companies should be looking towards renewable green energy systems to play their part.

Consumers are becoming more aware of the issues affecting our environment from articles in the news and are likely to look favourably at companies that are taking active measures to reduce their carbon footprint. WDS Green Energy who serve the Carmarthenshire area, provide a variety of options for people interested in sustainable energy systems.

There are various ways to utilise energy from the environment and one example is through the use of heat pumps to provide heating and hot water to a property. There are two main types; ground source heat pumps which extract geothermal energy from the ground and air source heat pumps that collect freely available heat from ambient air. An underfloor heating system is another method of providing heat for a building, which only requires low temperature hot water to function reducing running costs.

Solar Energy

The sun emits an incredible amount of energy and through solar panels it is possible to collect solar thermal energy. From the use of solar pv (photovoltaics) panels, buildings are able to generate solar electricity for everyday use. As an added incentive of producing your own energy, owners of PV systems can receive an income for the generated electricity under the Feed In Tariffs, provided that the system has been constructed through MCS approved equipment and installers. In addition to generating power, solar pv panels can be used to produce solar hot water for use in a building or home.

Another method for collecting energy from the environment is through the use of wind turbines. The electricity generated can be fed straight into the supply system or used to charge batteries.

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Government is also planning on rewarding people under the Renewable Heat Incentive. All those who install renewable energy systems such as solar panels and heat pumps, will receive a fixed amount based on an estimate of how much heat is produced. So now is a great time to get involved in lowering carbon emissions by producing your own renewable energy with the various products and services provided by WDS Green Energy, especially if you are in the Carmarthenshire area.
