In December and February, 2013/14, we saw Britain plagued with flooding. People were stranded away from their families not able to get home for Christmas, electric was cut off for days and businesses ruined. The warmer our atmosphere gets from Global Warming the more rain we will have.
Global Warming is caused by certain gases blocking heat from escaping the Earth's atmosphere hence why it is called the Greenhouse Effect. These gases include Methane, Carbon Dioxide and Nitrous Oxide. It is apparent that over the past 250 years, we, as human beings have had a detrimental effect on this. From large factories emitting pollution into the atmosphere to using our cars in our daily commute, we all, at some point, have contributed to Climate Change. However, we need to use cars to get to work and these large factories are what make the economy stronger and what builds us the things we need to survive.
Is there a way that we can change a part of our lifestyle in order to slow things down.
Using Renewable Energy Systems can help in 2 ways. The first being that we will be helping save our planet. We will rely less on burning oil reserves and will be utilizing a clean and efficient way of making energy. If the Government's predictions of the amount of households and land-owners using Renewable Energy systems in the near future are correct then we will be slowing Climate Change down an incredible amount.
We must all act a little bit more 'green'.
The second factor is very attractive to a home-owner who may have already lost energy due to flooding or power lines being destroyed. With an Off-Grid Renewable Energy System it will allow you to store your Solar Power into a battery pack and use that. Perfect for everyday use and for emergencies. You do not have to rely on the electric grid for power. A back up plan to be admired.

Putting a price on Solar Panels as a single unit is very difficult to do. The Solar Panel will vary in size depending on the scale of your project. At Dragon's Breath we are here to give a solution. We will gage what you want from your project, provide the best equipment there is and will only offer you the best figure we can. Please send us an email to discuss getting a quotation.
At Dragon's Breath we strongly recommend the highest tier of Solar Panel possible. Lower grade Solar Panels have become very cheap, but do not be fooled by the low prices. The life expectancy on the cheap panels is between 5-6 years and for those few years the efficiency is very poor. The cheap Solar Panels will not come with a guarantee either. Dragon's Breath deal with the highest grade of Solar Panel and can guarantee results
-Lower your Carbon Footprint - just one Solar PV System can save over a tonne of carbon dioxide a year.
-Cut your electricity bill - the sun does not cost us anything.
-Get paid while saving - the Government's 'Feed-In-Tariffs' pay you for electricity that you generate even if you use this electric you will still be paid for it.
-Increase the value of your home or business.
Does the UK receive adequate sunlight
Although here in the UK we are known for our gloomier weather, it is proven that we receive adequate sunlight to make using solar panels a viable alternative. Our panels are powered from light, not temperature or direct sunlight.
Please explain the 'MCS'
'MCS' stands for Micro generation Certification Scheme. 'MCS' is a standard of quality and in turn acts as proof of compliance with the UK Industry Standards. Companies will have a 'MCS' certification to prove they are able to manufacture or install Solar Panels and components.
The 'feed-in-tariff' is a Government scheme. If your home or business premises installs an Electricity Generating System using renewable energy then the Government scheme can ensure that your Energy Supplier pays you for the electric you generate. You will be paid even if you use the energy yourself and all remaining surplus energy will be exported back to the grid. An added bonus from the 'feed-in-tariff' is not only the money you get for generating the electric, but also the reducing of your electricity bill. The 'feed-in-tariff' replaced the Government grants in 2010 as the initial financial incentive to persuade home-owners and business owners to generate their own electricity. Both equipment and installers must be certified under the MCS in order to qualify for the 'feed-in-tariff'.
Planning permission is only required if the Solar Panel is used on the ground. Planning permission is not required if the panels are located on your home or business premises' roof.
If you take the informed decision and purchase a Tier 1 level Solar Panel you can expect the following
Our guarantee -
10 years with 100% product warranty
12 years 90% rated power output
25 years 82% rated power output
Tier 2 and 3 Solar Panel ratings are considerable less and have a lot less life expectancy.
Most homes with a roof are suitable for Solar Panels. As long as the side of the roof used is facing East, West or preferably South then you will have no problem attracting light. A full analysis of your building will be conducted prior to the installations of any Solar Panel equipment.
At Dragon's Breath our Tier 1 sourced Solar Panels and high grade equipment will withstand all weather conditions. If the panels are of poor quality and/or fitted by a tradesman who is not well qualified or has a lack of experience then the wind is a large threat to you.
Higher grade quality Solar Panels have a self cleaning glass once fitted at the correct angle between 30 and 35 degrees. This is in the same way that a Velux window remains clean.
When you sell your home you can transfer the 'feed-in-tariff' payments to the name of the new owners. They will have a steady income through the system that hasn't cost them anything. Therefore increasing the value of your home for re-sale.
Why shouldn't I just use a website that offers free Solar Panels
You must be very aware of the companies that claim to offer free Solar Panels. Companies often reserve the right for you to claim the 'feed-in-tariff' and therefore will take ownership of your roof, making it extremely difficult to sell your home. Such companies will promise you lowered bills but will charge you for this 'privilege'. The company will claim full 'feed-in-tariff' payments. We strongly recommend that you do not go down this route.
Do Solar Panels have to go on my roof
No. Solar Panels can also be erected on a frame and placed in your garden or land. We can design the frame for you to fit your requirements. They can be mounted outside and do not require any additional protection. Planning permission may have to be obtained prior to installation. We recommend you call your local council to enquire about this first.
When I buy the Solar PV panels will there be a new, more developed system out shortly after.
We have found that any break through in research in the renewable energy industry very rarely effects the level of outcome for business or personal Solar PV panel users as a microgeneration. However, if there is a new technology in the market that you wish to speak to us about please do. We will have an industry specialist willing to discuss this with you.
How much do Solar Street Lights cost
Likewise with the costing of Solar Panels it is very hard to put a price on our bespoke Solar Street Lights. Solar Street Lights are made to order and can consist of many different parts depending on the customer's requirements. Please send an email to discuss your project further.
What planning permission do I need for Solar Street Lights
To gain planning permission for Solar Street Lights you must apply to your local authority. Different areas will have different legislation, but on the whole, local authorities always seem willing to grant the planning permission. At Dragon's Breath we suggest you enquire about the planning permission first as we are here to give a solution first and then sell you our product, not to take all your money and run.
Explain what maintenance the Solar Street Lights require
The Solar Street Lights require no maintenance at all for the first 10 years.
How much money will I earn from Solar Energy
The amount you will earn from your Solar Energy System is set by the Government and the governing body who looks after the tariff. The return will be determined by the sliding scales from cost of electric. It is estimated that the scales will come to parity within an estimated 3 to 4 years where the price of electric and return on Solar Energy is the same. As energy costs rise the return on creating your own electric will be greater. All current information can be found on the Microgeneration Certificate Scheme website and the Energy Saving Trust website also.
