Solar panel installation in Cornwall

Solar PV, Battery Storage Systems and EV Chargers

With energy prices going through the roof now and such a global focus on climate change, you may be looking for ways to reduce your electricity bills and your carbon footprint.

You’ll be happy to know that we’re here to help

One of the most popular ways that you can reduce your energy bills is to install solar panels on your roof or in your garden alongside a battery storage system. The reasons for this are because you’ll be less reliant on the grid for your energy by using the solar energy produced via your panels, you’ll also be able to charge your battery storage unit during off peak ours. For example, Octopus energy are currently offering this service between 11:30 and 5:50 am at a rate of 7 pence per unit.

Battery storage

Having a battery storage unit allows customers to make better use of their solar PV by increasing their self-consumption of the solar energy they are producing apposed to sending it back into the national grid.

We can install battery storage systems as both a retro fit (Ie if you already have solar panels) or as a new installation on a new build or renovation project.

What is the main benefit of battery storage?

Financial Savings

Storing the solar energy that you have produced to use later in the day will save you money. The reason for this is that each unit of electricity that is used from your battery means that you won’t have to buy it from the grid at your standard rate.

For example; If you are paying 40 pence per unit, the battery will save you 40 pence x how many units you use from your battery (if its charged from Solar).

Do I need a solar PV system already to have battery storage installed?

The short answer is, no you don’t. As the battery units are programable, you can program them to charge at off peak times where the electricity rate per unit is up to 90% cheaper. However, you will always be better off if you have a solar PV system installed alongside.

EV chargers

There is no doubt that Electric vehicles are the future, they’re already becoming massively popular and much more affordable, mainly due to their low carbon footprint and the extortionate cost of fuel.

Due to increased demand from our customers, we are now also offering the installation of ev chargers to both the domestic and commercial markets. This can be a one-off installation or alongside a much larger project such as a new build.

We started projects with estimates which S Annear completely adhered to in 2015 and 2019. Subsequently any emergency callouts to any properties have always been promptly answered. A friendly, helpful team – you couldn’t ask for more,

Simon Annear Review

Rated 5 out of 5
June 30, 2022

Ours was a retrofit of a 12kw Vaillant Air-source recovery pump system in replacement of an oil-fired boiler which served an existing wet system in an enlarged 3-bedroom traditional cottage.
We have to say that from the outset the advice and guidance received from Simon Annear staff was excellent, and was delivered over several visits, always at our request.
The installation itself took place in late 2021 just as The Omicron phase of the pandemic became evident, and despite consequent staffing and supply-chain challenges, Simon Annear staff completed the main elements of dismantling the old and installation of the new systems within 3 days. Remarkably to us, all of this work was carried out in a very clean and orderly manner, and without significant disturbance to us.
A couple of ‘fine-tuning’ visits from engineers over following days saw the system running as promised, and we have enjoyed living with the new heating system over winter into spring and can further confirm that our system appears to run at broadly comparable cost to the combined mixed electric/oil-fired example previously employed.
Without reserve we would recommend Simon Annear to anyone considering a similar conversion.

The chap who attended the property was excellent. Unfortunately there was nothing he could do as the boiler and meter was a commercial one as it’s a big house. He directed me to someone who could help, after consulting with his boss. I would certainly use your company again. He was very polite and professional.

Simon Annear submitted the best technical solution for changing our boiler. We were not present for the installation but everything worked ok when we used it and subsequent service visits have been most satisfactory. We would definitely use them again.

Simon Annear have always been prompt and helpful. They installed the plumbing and heating on our new build and have returned periodically for services etc. The heating system was Air Source with underfloor heating and Solar Panels.
The installation was excellent as has been subsequently serviced. Highly recommended.

Simon and his team (particularly Dan and Kieran, both outstanding) did an excellent job of installing an air source heat pump with underfloor heating and hot water. Furthermore, they also fitted out two bathrooms – all to a very high standard. Dan and Simon were meticulous in the planning of the installation and did their utmost to fit in the work around our barn conversion. A professional and highly recommended company.

Radiator fell off wall in lounge and fractured inlet pipe. This was all repaired and replaced by young man called Tom who was respectful of our home and his workmanship was second to none. He is a credit to Simon Annear Plumbing.

As usual, service was carried out efficiently. Cheerful technician & worked very cleanly. Would have given 5 stars but arrived 2 hrs late. Not his fault but office should have advised us. It was no problem to us but may have been if we’d had other appointments. However, well done as usual.

Lovely young man came to look at my heated towel rail that didn’t come on when I turned the central heating on last month. Turned out it was human error on my part, but it was checked and then explained which tap did what. Very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly young man.
