What are renewable energy solutions?

Renewable energy solutions are systems that generate electricity or heat from renewable sources, such as solar, wind, geothermal, or hydro energy. These systems are becoming increasingly popular due to their environmental benefits, cost savings, and energy independence.

What are the benefits of renewable energy solutions?

Renewable energy solutions offer a wide range of benefits, including reduced energy costs, lower carbon emissions, increased energy independence, and improved energy efficiency. They can also increase the value of your property and reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources.

What renewable energy solutions do you offer?

At Sussex Renewable Energy, we specialise in designing and installing Solar PV systems, Air Source Heat Pumps, energy storage solutions and EV Chargers. We work closely with our clients to create bespoke solutions that meet their specific needs and requirements.

How much does it cost to install renewable energy solutions?

The cost of renewable energy solutions varies depending on the type of system, the size of your property, and your energy needs. We offer a free consultation to assess your property and provide you with a bespoke quote for your project.

How long does it take to install renewable energy solutions?

The installation time varies depending on the size of the system and the complexity of the installation. On average, a Solar PV system takes one to two days to install, while an Air Source Heat Pump installation can take up to two weeks. We provide a detailed project timeline and keep our clients informed throughout the installation process.

Will renewable energy solutions work in my area?

Renewable energy solutions can work in any area, as long as there is sufficient sunlight, wind, or heat available. Our team will conduct a site assessment to determine the best renewable energy solution for your property.

Can I sell excess energy back to the grid?

2. The UK government's Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme was officially closed to new applications on March 31, 2019. The FIT scheme was a government program that aimed to encourage the uptake of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies, such as solar panels and wind turbines, by offering financial incentives to those who generated their own electricity. The scheme provided payments for every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated, as well as additional payments for any unused electricity that was exported to the national grid. While the FIT scheme is no longer accepting new applications, there are still opportunities for those interested in generating their own renewable energy. For example, the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme was introduced in January 2020 as a replacement for the FIT scheme's export tariff. Under the SEG scheme, energy suppliers with over 150,000 customers are required to offer a tariff to customers who generate renewable energy and export it to the grid. Additionally, there are still grants and financial incentives available for certain types of renewable energy installations, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive for heat pumps and other renewable heating technologies.

Are there any tax incentives for installing renewable energy solutions?

Yes, there are UK tax incentives available for installing renewable energy solutions. One such incentive is the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, which provides tax relief for businesses that invest in energy-saving and renewable energy equipment. The ECA scheme allows businesses to claim 100% first-year capital allowances on qualifying products and technologies, which can help to reduce the overall cost of installation. 1. In addition to the ECA scheme, there are other tax incentives available for certain types of renewable energy installations. For example, the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme provides financial incentives for homeowners who install eligible renewable heating systems, such as air source heat pumps or biomass boilers. The Non-Domestic RHI scheme provides similar incentives for commercial and public sector organisations. It's important to note that tax incentives and schemes can change over time, so it's always best to check with a qualified accountant or tax advisor to determine what incentives may be available for your specific circumstances.

How do I maintain my renewable energy system?

Our team provides ongoing maintenance and support for your renewable energy system. This includes regular servicing, system checks, and performance monitoring to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency.
