Renewable Energy Installations
As an environmentally conscious organisation, Paul Fitzpatrick & Sons Ltd. is committed to the promotion of green technologies and their application in the industrial, commercial and domestic markets, as a way of reducing society's reliance on fossil fuels. Our company's services in the fields of renewable and low-carbon technologies reflect the many facets of renewable resource harvesting as a way of satisfying, in a sustainable way, the energy demands of the future.
Photovoltaic cells use light to generate electricity. Solar PV cells can be arranged in panels on a building's roof or walls, and can often directly feed electricity into the building. With the latest PV technology, cells can also be integrated into the roof tiles themselves. Groups of solar PV cells can be added together to provide increasing levels of power. This can range from small solar panels for use in domestic households, to larger arrays, which function as separate solar power plants feeding power directly into the electricity grid.
Paul Fitzpatrick & Sons are experienced in the design and installation of PV cells and can advise on the potential suitability for your project.
Solar hot water systems, also known as Solar Thermal systems, capture the sun's radiation to heat water in domestic and commercial applications. Systems can be configured to provide instant hot water or designed to allow storage of heated water for later use.
An average domestic or small business system can provide up to 70% of the hot water requirement. In larger, commercial applications the percentage contribution to the total hot water requirement can be lower than that of domestic systems, but as a long-term solution to lowering reliance on carbon based fuels it is proving cost-effective.
We can assist in determining the appropriate solar panel solution for your project and carry out the full design and installation of the system.
This increasingly common micro-generation technology is appearing on many new build projects in the UK. Smaller turbine applications, producing typically up to 50kW of electricity, for domestic or smaller commercial developments, are now commonplace. Supported by grant schemes, the technology is increasingly attractive and cost-effective for commercial developers.
Exposed coastal or rural sites do provide the most effective conditions for the harnessing of wind energy, but the UK market for urban sites is growing and Paul Fitzpatrick & Sons Ltd. is playing its part in the development with design and installation expertise tailored to suit client requirements.
