The Best Solar Hot Water System in France
Our solar hot water system provides around 75% plus of your annual hot water needs, reducing your energy bills and is the best carbon reducing system of all the renewable energies.
Solar thermal technology is a perfect investment for todays’ energy conscious times. It’s simple, effective and it works. We use a system developed with 35 years plus of tested technology. The Kingspan HP400 system is a quality dry evacuated tube system, robust enough for domestic applications in France.
Our solar hot water system can be used as stand alone independent hot water system, can be linked to an existing boiler such as the EcoPellet boiler, used to heat your pool or in combination.
Why go solar...
- Reduce electricity bills considerably
- Reduce reliance on the grid & large corporations
- Simple to install, maintain & manage
- No contracts, tarifs or additional meters
- Flexible systems can be added to if your needs increase
- 25-30 year performance guarantees
- Reduce your CO2 footprint with clean, green energy
How you save...
- Kit prices are the lowest they have ever been
- By Reducing the number of electricity units bought from the grid
- Avoid paying 30% plus TVA of additional charges on those units
- Protection from future electricity price hikes
- Reduced rates of TVA on small installations
- Investment offset by the increased value of your home
RENEWABLE PRACTICAL ENERGY SOLUTIONS THAT DON’T COST THE EARTH
At Ecopower we use ‘on’ roof aluminium fixing system that is low profile, strong and light. Being on roof allows airflow around the panels keeping them cool which improves the performance of the panel.
Your roof tiles stay in place making this system easier and cheaper to install and giving a more uniform, flatter finish.
At Ecopower we use the PVMax3 aluminium frame system with light and strong module bearing structures needing no ground penetration, keeping siting costs and impact low.
Ideally designed for smaller domestic and business systems. Each frame is designed for the weather conditions likely at your postcode.
DIY GROUND MOUNTING
For smaller DIY ground mounting systems for up 4 panels (although you can double etc. up if you have the room). All you need is a flat shade free area of your garden. We provide everything else for collection from our warehouse*.
* electrician will be required for final cabling and connections.
THE KIT WE USE
We use a range of highly efficient, high output, seek, black panels with excellent performance yields and 25-30 year performance warranties manufactured in the EU. Our panels are hail and frost tested and are salt, dust and sand resistant.
Enphase Micro-Inverters maximise energy productions allowing each panel to operate individual like it’s own little power plant, simplifying the array design and increasing safety.
These micro-inverters carry a 20yr manufactures warranty and link the Enlighten monitoring.
This analysis software monitors and records the solar electricity production and usage in real time. It enables you to log on and check performance panel by panel. It also identifies and will e-mail you if it detects an anomaly.
The ultimate, award winning energy saving device, the Immersun diverts any solar electricity not being used to an element in an electric hot water cylinder to start heating domestic hot water. Immersun is also suitable for under floor heating circuits, storage heaters or infrared panels.
The Enphase AC battery is modular in design, simple to install, reliable and provides the lowest lifetime energy cost of any other system. Quick and easy to install with the Enlighten monitoring with a max capacity of 1.2KW per module.
OPTIMISING SOLAR SELF USE
Whatever solar PV system you choose will be making a big dent in your electricity bill but there are things you can do to maximise the use of the solar you produce making even bigger savings.
Running appliances such as the dishwasher or washing machine, slow cooker etc. and charging during daylight hours and one after the other will help you make the most of your PV system. Timer switches and delay programmes are available on most appliances allowing you to manage this more easily.
The Immersun is a simple device that diverts unused solar energy to the electrical element of a hot water cylinder, storage heater etc. to start heating water and will ensure you don’t need to worry about loosing any precious solar energy.
Keep your panels clean – PV systems require very little attention but will get dirty over time, reducing the output level. Cleaning every couple of years will optimise outputs.
