Private Client, Beith, Ayrshire, Scotland

Split orientation ~4kW Solar PV System installed by others 2013

Following a new roof being built and covered on their property, this customer contacted us to re-install their arrays on East and West facing pitches.

“Thank you very much for getting the panels up and running again.  It has been a welcome change using a company who actually do things when they say they will and I would recommend you to anyone looking for solar work.”

 

Gillian Jack, West Kilbride, Ayrshire, Scotland

Split orientation ~4kW Solar PV System installed by others 2013

Following a call from the client saying that yield was lower than expected, we carried out investigation and repairs to original installation expected to DOUBLE yield compared to that from installation in 2013. We then followed up with safety/regulation corrections to wiring and switchgear installation.

“I’m happy to go ahead with your further recommendations…I’m just delighted the system is up & running again & performing at its best now, thanks to Solar and Wind Applications.” – May 2016

Private Client, Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland

Installed April 2016

5.13kWp Solar PV, Solar Edge, East/West Split Roof Mounted

 

See Case Study for more information on the system and its design. A good example of why you don’t have to have a South facing roof!

“On moving in to our new home, we were keen to reduce our running costs and environmental impact as far as possible. We approached Solar and Wind Applications who expertly guided us through the design process and equipment recommendations. They made it clear that our East and West facing roof was a benefit, as it increases our self consumption savings.

The installation was carried out promptly, neatly and exactly as discussed.  After a few weeks of the system operating since installation this Spring, we’ve generated almost all of our own daytime electricity. Any excess generation has provided constant hot water too via EMMA.

We are delighted with every element of the process and the performance!”

 

Private Client, Ayrshire, Scotland

Installed March 2014, comment March 2016

3.71kWp Solar PV, Solar Edge, Roof Mounted

“I thought you would be interested to know that after what you thought may have been an exceptionally good result last year (3575kwh generated = 15% over target), this year, which has been by no means meteorogically brilliant, has yielded 3388kwh and therefore still 9% over target. As you would expect, I am delighted!!”

4kW Solar PV with Solar Edge, Ground Mounted

It’s not only the installation phase you need to rely on your chosen installer for. Good quality, prompt support for any queries – no matter how large or small –  after your system is up and running is extremely valuable over the many years of system life. We endeavour to provide complete peace of mind when it comes to after sales. Extract below is from an email several months after the installation took place.

“Thanks for your enthusiastic interest…Your quality of technical support deserves an award – best in Scotland!”

 

Private Client, Dumfries, Scotland

Installed June 2013

4kW Solar PV with Solar Edge 

“To help us to maximise the return on our investment, Solar and Wind Applications provided two schemes for our consideration.  The completeness of the presentation enabled us to select this solution, which although requiring more sophisticated and costly control circuitry, provided a higher electrical output and a shorter payback period. The installation and workmanship also satisfied this pedantic construction professional.”

 

Mr Reid, Private Client, York, England

Installed March 2013

EMMA SP15

“I am just sending a quick email to say, “thank you to Rob and Jamie”, for doing a smashing job fitting an EMMA unit at our home in York. It would be difficult to find two nicer guys to invite into our home.

Even with very low levels of power production today, being overcast and rainy, we are seeing the benefits already with small inputs to the immersion heater raising the temperature significantly. I am looking forward to using more of “my electricity” without having to operate the immersion manually, as I have until now, and seeing the efficiency benefits expected from the EMMA unit.”

 

SCube Owner, UK

Some feedback from one of our SCube owners:

“…we have one of your excellent SCube solar science sets, which is useful to demonstrate microgeneration to schoolkids on our community activities. We receive a lot of educational products and of course, in recent times, renewable energy has been a big theme for us. To my mind, this is the most comprehensive (and I have to say beautifully designed) packages I’ve seen. I really can’t think of anything I’d add to it (except another S-Cube!).”

 

Private Client, Scottish Borders

Installed July 2010-2012

Proven 6kW Wind Turbine with 1 x EMMA SP15/30 and 1 x EMMA SP15/45

This customer, whose site you can read more about in a case study made the following comments on completion of our works.

“I have instructed Solar and Wind Applications to handle 2 of my larger renewable technology investment projects in 2010 and 2012 and have great confidence in the integrity, conscientious and thoughtful approach and balanced judgment applied to these innovative designs. Having recommended their work to others, I was pleased to hear in return the same comments on their attention to detail, quality of work and diligence that makes using Solar and Wind Applications a pleasure as well as an excellent business contract partner. I would be happy to recommend them for renewable energy projects and designs.”

The below comments are an excerpt from an extremely pleased customer…the rest of the message was equally complimentary.

“(I thought I would)…drop you a quick note to commend both the professionalism of you and your business for any future enquiries and confirm that I would be delighted to act as a referee to any prospective clients.

I would also like to add that amongst a field of four companies interviewed and who all attended the site here at our home, your honest and objective response to all my queries…was a breath of fresh air…outlining the best cost and process evaluation for us as if you had been doing so for a family member of your own!

Your site team of three led formidably by Joe were courteous and efficient at all times making time through the installation to ensure I understood what they were doing and how to both operate and read the system outputs.”

Mrs Jamieson, private client. Isle of Islay, Scotland.

Installed April 2008

2.5kW Proven Wind Turbine

“I have the highest regard for you and your team. I was kept informed through every step of the procedure. I also have to thank Richard at your Roslin office, as he was my first contact and proved extremely helpful both to me and also John on Islay who was to do the groundwork. On the ‘great’ day of the final installation, the weather was bitterly cold, but the boys did an extremely professional job and the turbine was up in a matter of hours. Pass my thanks and regards to Christine for her help too.

I won’t hesitate to recommend Solar and Wind Applications to all and sundry should anyone wish to join me in a small way towards helping the environment.”

Installed November 2007

5kW NIBE Ground Source Heat Pump

6kW Proven Energy Wind Turbine

“Would you prefer to heat your house without expensive Gas or Oil costs? Why not consider installing a ground source heat pump using thermal energy from underground, I did. One was installed by Solar and Wind Applications Ltd in a newbuild constructed by me in November 07; the house was warm with an even temperature during the winter 07/08. We are both delighted with the system.”

Installed May 2008

8kW NIBE Ground Source Heat Pump

“Of all the many alternative energy consultants and contractors we have investigated over the past four years, Solar and Wind Applications has shown themselves to be the most knowledgeable, professional, effective and courteous organisation we have encountered. Our geothermal system has been installed with the minimum of disruption and according to programme.”

Mr David Gaw, private client. Port William, Scotland.

Installed July 2007

6kW Proven Wind Turbine

“Dear Rod, just a note to say how pleased I am with the 6kW turbine which you installed on the 2nd July 2007. The turbine has produced 15,550 units of electricity in the year to 2nd July 2008. As my house is heated with a ground source heat pump and the turbine is producing all required electricity, I have no energy bills. A well satisfied customer!

Best regards David.”

Mrs Dora Elliot, private client. Edinburgh, Scotland.

Installed January 2006

1.5kWp Solar Photovoltaic System

“Having solar PV panels installed on my roof, as well as helping to cover up my carbon footprint, has been a great adventure–like having a new, very expensive, educational toy. This experience has been enhanced by the great interest, coordination with the planning department and vital on going support provided by Richard. I feel really fortunate that I chose Solar and Wind Applications as my installer back in 2005.”
