As energy bills look to go up anywhere from under 4% to almost 11%, one investment-savvy gift can keep on giving year after year, and can satisfy the retiree worrying about costs, the environmentally conscious couple who want to lower their personal carbon footprint, or anyone who wants to feel more in control of their energy bills.
Caernarfon-based Dave Hazeldine, GeminiSolar CEO, says, “Energy prices are always a matter for concern, especially in rural parts of North Wales. With many people also feeling the pinch of extra costs around Christmans, saving money has to be high on the list of must haves. Modern technology means we can harvest the natural energy of the sun almost anywhere in the UK, even on cloudy winter days. Our customers range from retired money-wise farmers, and eco-conscious villagers, to people who are simply tired of increasingly high energy bills.”
A recent Department of Energy & Climate Change (DEEC) survey showed the contribution of renewables to gross electricity consumption increased by 2.0% to 10.8% in 2012.
Dave adds, “Installing a solar photo-voltaic (PV) system means you can be an independent supplier of clean, green electricity for your own use, and for export to the grid. Actual savings are subject to a site’s energy use, but can be modified slightly to try to use the generated energy more effectively.”
As one of Gemini Solar’s customer says, “Compared to an ISA at 2% - 3%, the estimated 13.88% return on investment (ROI) from solar PV makes sense.”
Dave adds, “At Gemini Solar, we offer bespoke solutions and balanced budgets. Using a customised combination of the newest technologies means lower energy bills and reduced personal carbon footprint. It can be a great gift to you and your family, and a real investment for the future.”
Gemini Solar is based in North Wales, and designs, installs, maintains and services solar PV, solar thermal, biomass and gas systems and appliances, making it much cheaper to heat and power homes and businesses.
