Solar Select is a small family business with a big impact. Its team travels the length and breadth of the country providing green energy and renewable solutions to customers. Believing in providing a quality, hassle-free, value-for-money service to all, the company has earned a sterling reputation built on trust, reliability, and honesty. Its engineers are fully qualified, trained, and experienced, not only in the installation of solar PV systems and battery storage, but they are also fully qualified electricians and roofers who are used to working in customers’ homes. The company is committed to keeping up with the latest technology, too, and ensuring its team has sustainable energy expertise to allow them to offer customers the very best home and business solutions at the most competitive prices. For those who already have a solar PV system, Solar Select can retro-fit a battery storage system to enable them to save even more money – and it will not affect their current FiT payments. More and more people taking the opportunity to become more self-sufficient and beat the everincreasing prices from electric suppliers by becoming 80% energy independent. The majority of solar PV system owners use an average of 25%-35% of their generated electricity, with the remainder being exported to the electricity grid. During periods when the output from the solar panels exceeds demand, the surplus energy is used to charge batteries which can then be called upon to provide power when demand is higher, during the day and night. Then, anyone who has an economy 7 or offpeak tariff can programme their system to topup batteries using cheap rate electricity, which is especially useful during the winter months when generation is low. An emergency power supply (EPS) can also be connected to some essential circuits like lights and TV or wi-fi, enabling them to continue working if there is a power cut. This comes with an easy to use monitoring platform to see the energy being generated, how much electric is being used in the home (self-consumption), how much charge is in the batteries, and what is being imported or exported to the grid. Ultimately, Solar Select prides itself on a five-star Yell.com rating, which reflects its true dedication to its work and customers. One customer shares their experience: “Just had solar and battery storage installed. What a fantastic job. Arrived on the Tuesday and everything installed and commissioned by Wednesday lunchtime. The workmanship and standard of installation was superb. I was kept informed throughout the install and on the placement of the equipment and how it worked. The team were very professional throughout, cleaned up behind them and removed all packaging, etc. “Terry, Sam, and the panel installers fully deserve a five-star rating and I would strongly recommend Solar Select to anyone wanting a solar system installed.” Another customer comments, “Thank you Terry and Sam for my recent solar battery installation. The standard of work was great, really neat and tidy, and already I can see a difference in terms of grid requirement and how my system is functioning. Sam was great in explaining how the whole system works (his Tech talk). Also a big thanks to Terry for keeping me updated on the delayed installation throughout.” Company: Solar Select Ltd Email: info@solarselect.net Address: Salwarpe Business Park, Salwarpe Road, Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, WR9 9BN.
