The Queen goes solar!

The Queen could soon be adding another sparkler to her dazzling collection but it’s not a tiara! Actually it’s solar panels, which could be installed on the roof at Buckingham Palace as part of an extensive refit. We think the panels would be an excellent modern day jewel in the crown!

Sleek, black, award-winning – and built into your roof

Could it be the best looking solar you’ve ever seen? Quite possibly! Since Sunstation launched in May, the solar panel system that sits in the roof (rather than on it) has won a hugely prestigious iF DESIGN AWARD 2016 – a globally recognised seal of design excellence. 

British fashion designer Wayne Hemingway MBE was the first to install Sunstation on his unique Sussex home. Well, if it’s good enough for a fashion designer… 

This great-looking built-in option is now available from IKEA.

The Times misreports energy embodied in solar panels

A recent article in The Times questioned how green solar panels are (“Solar panels less green than you think say experts” published on December 7th 2016). The conclusion was misleading to say the least. Get the facts here.

Solar and battery storage on your Christmas list?

In Germany, most new residential solar systems are now installed with battery storage. And, with prices dropping, the technology is on its way to the UK. If you want to generate your own clean solar electricity, and be able to consume the electricity at night, then consider solar with battery storage.

Solarcentury has been trialling solar and battery storage on homes around the UK; our lucky guinea pigs have been buying up to three quarters less electricity from the grid than they did before getting solar and a battery.
