What are solar PV panels?

Eco Incentive Solar PV

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems convert energy from the sun using solar panels, into electricity which can be used to run appliances and lighting.

Solar Panel

Energy from the sun in the UK is around 60% of that of the equator and you do not need direct sunlight for solar PV panels to work, they will still produce electricity on cloudy days. Solar systems can be installed successfully across the whole country and there are now many thousands of systems installed in all regions of the UK.

Solar photovoltaic panels are usually placed on the roof of your property and gather energy from the sun, which is used to generate electricity. Solar panels can be fitted on your roof, which is the most common and cost effective system. They can also be fitted in roof for an improved aesthetic appearance, the panels replace the tiles and are positioned at the same level. Alternatively, if these options are not suitable because you have a flat roof or your roof cannot accomodate solar panels, an A frame system can be used. These systems can be mounted on a flat roof or on the ground.

What is solar thermal?

Eco Incentive Solar PV

Solar thermal is a technology which harnesses solar energy from the sun and turns it into thermal heat energy.


Solar thermal panels are usually placed on the roof of your property and gather energy from the sun, which is used to heat water. This water is then used to provide hot water to your property. Even in Winter, the panels will pre-heat the water in the tank so that your boiler uses less energy to keep your water hot, and so saves you money on your energy bills.

Solar thermal systems use solar panels, called collectors, which are fitted to the roof of the premises. The process is simple, the panels on your roof absorb heat from the sun and the water in the panels heat up. The water is then pumped through a coil in your hot water cylinder and the heat is transferred to the water in the cylinder.

Rainwater harvesting how it works?

Eco Incentive Rainwater harvest

Our rainwater harvesting systems are specifically designed for domestic and small commercial applications.



Eco Incentive Rain Water harvester

Rainwater harvesting units collect water from rainfall and convert it into clean and usable water for your property. Rainwater falling on the roof flows along gutters, down pipes and into the tank via an integrated filter which removes unwanted particles from the rainwater.

The rainwater is triple filtered to ensure the water to be used is perfectly clean. This pure and soft water is much better suited for garden irrigation and laundry.

In domestic applications, it is generally accepted that mains water usage can be reduced by around 50% by utilising rainwater harvesting systems but in many commercial applications, this will be far higher and often over 80%.

Eco Incentive offer these packaged solutions for smaller systems and can also provide specific systems for larger applications which will be sized and designed to suit your particular needs.

There are various system types in the range to suit all applications from basic garden irrigation right through to fully automatic systems to provide all your non-potable water needs.

For best value, we can supply a complete kit of parts or a fully assembled system to meet your exact requirements. By conducting a survey and analysing the water requirements of your property, we are able to advise you on what size system would cater for your demand and run most efficiently for you.

What is biomass?

Eco Incentive Biomass

Biomass systems typically burn wood pellets, wood chips or logs. They provide space heating and hot water to domestic, commercial and industrial users.


Eco Incentive Biomass

Biomass boilers come in a range of sizes, depending on your heat load requirements, and are clean and easy to maintain.

Biomass boiler systems operate in the same way as a conventional boiler system, with the exception of fuel delivery. Pellets or wood chips are fed through an auger which is automatically controlled by the boiler. As the fuel enters the boiler, the material is ignited either by elements or an electric blower on the initial start up.

The hot gases are then passed through a heat exchanger and the heat is transferred to the water used in your central heating system.

The price of the wood fuel needed for a biomass boiler is significantly cheaper than other heating options. The large and expanding supply of wood fuels are sustainable and not subject to the geopolitical price increases often seen with fossil fuels.

The carbon dioxide emitted when the wood is burned is equal to the amount that was absorbed over the years that the tree was growing.

Biomass systems are ideally suited to most buildings, especially with high heating and hot water requirements including: large buildings such as hospitals, schools and offices; hotel and leisure sectors such as golf clubs and swimming pool complexes and the residential sector, such as care homes and single family homes.

How a heat pump works?

Eco Incentive heatpump

A heat pump is a device that harvests renewable heat energy from the sun which is stored in the ground or ambient air around your property.


Eco Incentive ground source heatpump


Heat pumps are very efficient devices that typically convert 1kW of energy used to run the pump into 2-4kW of useable heat for your property all year round – something not possible with other heating methods. In contrast, conventional boilers convert 1kW of input energy into less than 1kW of output energy.

A heat pump uses a vapour compression cycle to enable low temperatures gathered from the ground or air surrounding your property and transfer them to a refrigerant.

The liquid refrigerant is then compressed causing it to change from a liquid to a gas which produces much higher temperatures. This high temperature gas is then passed through a heat exchanger that transfers the heat from the hot gas into the heating and hot water system for your property.

Even at very low temperatures, the vapour compression cycle can produce heat sufficient to provide your heating and hot water. Heat pumps are even capable of generating heat from outside temperatures as low as -20°c.

You can collect heat from the air, water, bedrock or the ground. Energy can be found all around your property and it is constantly replenished by the heat of the sun. We offer three different heat pump systems to capture that energy and heat your property. Our expertise will help you find the right one for you and your property.

What is a wind turbine?

Eco Incentive

A wind turbine's rotor blades are aerodynamically engineered to extract energy from the prevailing wind and then turn a turbine to generate electricity.



The electricity generated from a wind turbine is converted into a standard mains voltage to be used around the property to run any lights and electrical appliances.

Wind turbines are a clean, efficient way to generate electricity for your home, business or farm. They are heavily subsidised with tariffs so they make sound investments for property and land owners.

A wind turbine does not contribute to noise pollution. At a wind speed of 5.5m/s 60 metres away, the noise from the turbine blades is only 40dB which is between a whisper and a normal conversation; this is below standard background wind noise levels. Whether you install a wind turbine in an urban or rural location, noise from a wind turbine will not disturb neighbours or farm animals.

All turbines will need planning permission, Eco Incentive have a specialist wind turbine planning team that can handle the whole process seamlessly for you.
