Crewe Solar Panels
In spite of its relatively northerly location, Crewe still gets between 1,350 and 1,500 hours of sunshine each year. This means that using solar power to cut energy bills is still viable in the area. Systems installed in this part of the UK take slightly longer to pay for themselves, but they are still worth investing in.
It is true that the further south you go in the UK the more sunshine you get. However, what many people do not realise is that the difference works at only an average of 20 or 30 minutes per day.
That means a solar system in somewhere like Crewe would pay for itself in about 9.8 years, whereas the same system in a location like Wakefield would take 9.4 years - a negligible difference. However, this is a fact the people of Crewe are not yet very aware of, so uptake of solar installations is relatively slow in the area.
Crew Solar Installers
There is only one solar installation firm physically based in the town, but there are several firms based in nearby towns that also install systems in Crewe. Additionally, many of the national franchisers serve the Crewe area, so there is still plenty of choice.
Cheshire Solar Tech sells both solar water and photovoltaic systems. They also install rainwater harvesting systems. They are MSC accredited and part of REAL (Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd) so offer high quality installations.
Cheshire Solar Power Ltd are also MSC accredited and REAL members. They supply panels that look good on practically any style of house.
Blazes have been installing heating systems for over 20 years. They added solar a few years ago, and today sell ground and air source heat pumps as well.
Other firms that cover the area include, Wired 4 Solar Ltd, The Green Electrician Ltd and BAJ Electrical Ltd. Each firm offers a variety of electrical services as well as green energy solutions.
