As the cost of traditional fuels continues to rise, many people are turning to alternative energy sources to try to reduce their fuel bills. For people living in rural areas (particularly those who are off-gas) replacing expensive fuels like oil and LPG with renewable energy alternatives is now a very viable option.
Scottish Hydro is a market leader in renewable energy and is the UK’s largest generator of renewable electricity. We’re also leading the way in micro-generation, specifying and installing small, self-contained systems that are appropriate for the home.
While Solar PV systems that generate electricity continue to grow in popularity (and benefit from schemes like the Feed-in Tariff), we also offer a number of renewable heat options. From heat pumps to biomass boilers and solar water heating systems, we can provide an exceptional service from system design right through to installation and aftercare.
Renewable heat isn’t just economical, it’s also environmentally friendly and can help to reduce carbon emissions. For example, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps can capture solar energy that exists in the environment and put it to use in the home. Similarly, solar water heating systems convert sunshine into heat while biomass systems burn completely sustainable and renewable organic material (usually wood) in a very efficient way.
