MaidEnergy’s main area of focus has been on photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and their associated inverters, which are a mature technology, widely used in the UK and globally. PV solar panels generate electricity throughout daylight hours, even when it’s cloudy, but generate more in sunnier conditions. Berkshire and Surrey are among the sunniest parts of the UK, averaging over 1,500 hours of sunshine a year.
MaidEnergy have installed 390kW of generation and are now looking for future solar projects on buildings with large enough roofs to be economically viable.
We have also installed a Ground Source Heat Pump at Thames Valley Athletics Centre (TVAC), along with our solar panels. This has replaced 8 aging gas boilers and is financed through the use of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
