Welcome to ECO HI SOLAR

We design and install solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems. We believe solar energy must be exploited as one of several renewable energy resources in the urgent need to drive down reliance on fossil fuels.

Since we are Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accredited installers you will benefit from the Feed in Tariff (FIT) available for PV installations for 25 years, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which may start (!!) in 2013, for solar thermal installations for 20 years.

These incentives enable significant earnings to be made as well as considerable reductions to our carbon footprint whilst at the same time investing in renewable energy technologies which will help in securing our energy future.

ECO HI SOLAR uses the latest technology and techniques and offers straightforward solutions at affordable prices which combine seamlessly with existing energy systems in our homes and businesses.

We operate in the South East UK (West and East Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Kent and London). Our offices are in southern England in Brighton and Hove where we work with local County Councils, Renewable Energy Initiatives (e.g. OVESCO in Lewes), architects on new-builds and businesses such as property developers.

"I am a totally satisfied customer having both a solar thermal system and solar photovoltaic installed by Eco Hi Solar. They did not exaggerate the product but explained everything fully. The installation of firstly Solar Water Heating, and then a year later Photovoltaic, was done very neatly with a minimum of fuss. We had them fit Photo Voltaic because of the good job they did with Solar Water installation. It is a very neat and solid installation. I was a total sceptic but was proved completely wrong!"

Graham & Carole, Kingston, East Sussex 

"Eco Hi Solar inspired confidence from the start and has a straightforward, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful approach. Everything happened as planned, neat work and system working successfully. Our system combines solar heating panel, wood-burning stove back boiler and two immersion elements with one hot water tank."

 

"Eco Hi Solar were great. They gave very good advice and told me about all the different options for solar thermal, explaining the pros and cons of each. They also had no problem working with our plumber to link up the solar thermal with our woodburner, which heats the water in the winter months."

 

"Can I just say how delightful it has been to have you working for us. It is rare that we have ever had work done so well, so diligently and so politely. And tell your electrician I don't think I have ever had any electrical work done where I have come home and not had to tidy things up or straighten trunking! Very Very Impressed."

Adam, Sandhurst, Kent. 

"Excellent service throughout. Eco Hi Solar is a very professional outfit with knowledgable and friendly advice. The installation process was completely painless, with everything explained well in advance and all works completed exactly to the agreed schedule. The installation is neat and unobtrusive, and I have been proud to show it to many friends and interested neighbours. The system has worked well from day 1 and although commissioned just before a period of extended cold weather, has given solar input on many days. I look forward to sunnier times to really get the best out of it."

We were kept fully informed at every stage & all workmen were efficient, skilled & extremely professional. We then had solar PV installed by the same company & are delighted."

Jackie, Balcombe 

"Eco Hi Solar fitted my solar hot water system 3 years ago, I have had no problems and find the saving especially in summer with my boiler off reduces my bill considerably. The standard of work installation was excellent, and included a very awkward tank fitting. Technical matters and how to use was explained very clearly. I have nothing but praise for a very friendly and efficient service."

Solar Photovoltaic Systems

Solar PV systems generate electricity which can be used instantaneously by the household or business, whilst any surplus electricity generated is fed directly to the national-grid.

The Feed in Tariff (FIT) is an incentive scheme initiated by the government and managed by your electricity provider. The payment rates are fixed for 20-25 years, linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI) and are tax-free.

We use a wide range of modules and components and use fully qualified engineers and electricians to design and install our systems. Component manufacturers include SANYO, Mitsubishi, DAY4 Energy, Sharp, Upsolar, Schuco, Schott, TG Solar, Romag, Hyundai, SMA, Solar Century, Mastervolt, Power-One, Fronius, KACO, Enecsys, Yingli and Ever Solar.

Solar Thermal Systems

Solar thermal (ST) systems utilize the sun’s energy by generating heat. This heat can be transferred to hot water, swimming pool and central heating systems. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was to be introduced in October 2012 (but is now delayed!) and will reward owners by paying 8.5p/KWth on a deemed amount for a period of 20 years.

During the summer months a ST system will heat a hot water cylinder with almost no additional assistance while in the winter months it can make a significant contribution, so saving on fossil fuel bills and helping reduce environmental pollution.
