Solar Energy

Photovoltaic (PV) cells for electricity
Whether at existing premises or new build, photovoltaic cells attached to roofs or walls of buildings can provide electricity for your own use and in some cases make a profit for you by selling it back to the Grid. Although you’ll need a wall or roof that isn’t overshadowed, it isn’t necessary to be in constant sunlight. As the roof needs to be robust enough to take the panels, you will need an assessment, so call us for a FREE quotation and we can give you a cost, a savings prediction.

Using the photovoltaic panels, you can also use the sun to warm hot water. It is necessary to have a conventional boiler or immersion heater to increase the heat generated and to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable, but installing a solar hot water system is one of the best investments homeowners or businesses can make to reduce their electric or natural gas water heating bills.

To encourage businesses to invest in green energy heating, solar thermal is one of the products in the Government’s Renewable Policy, which means that you will benefit from financial support. For details click here.  


rainwaterRainwater Harvesting

Rainwater harvesting is an historic practice which died out in most parts of the UK with the advent of mains water however for a country where the rainfall is high and the water rates are too, rainwater harvesting makes financial sense for domestic dwellings, especially new builds, where the installation costs are low. For some parts of the UK, it will be almost a necessity on new build sites, as despite our rainfall,  the water table is so low.

The water can be used for landscape irrigation, washing machines, toilets flushing and any other water use other than drinking.

It’s not just domestic properties that can benefit. With rainwater harvesting components approved by HM Revenue and Customs for qualification on the enhanced capital allowance scheme (ECA) introduced by the Finance Act 2003; commercial and industrial properties, can see ROI in 3-5 years.

At Highland, we can assess your existing or planned buildings for rainwater harvesting and we’ll give you costing and predicted savings.


heatpumpsHeat Pumps and Home Ventilation

At Highland we can supply and fit you with efficient systems for using ambient heat and heat recovery from indoor air which will require little electrical energy and maximise the ambient heat for cooling or heating. Using renewable resources in this way your heat supply can be CO2 neutral and sustainable.

With efficient ventilation systems recovering more than 90 % of the heat in the extracted air and returning pure fresh air, you can have a modern ventilation system which saves energy and is also environmentally friendly.
