About Us

SolarEssence is a designer, manufacturer, supplier and installer of solar powered renewable energy systems. We specialise in both Solar PV Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Heating Technologies. We strive to provide our customers with the very best available technical and innovative solutions tailored to their particular needs and circumstances. All of this of course at the most competitive prices available.

Extensive Experience

We are an established, stable and trusted company. Throughout the years we have accumulated a large existing customer base throughout the country.

This experience has enabled us to develop specialist in-house knowledge of how to best integrate solar technology into your home. Best of all we can undertake the entire project for you from start to finish, with no need for multiple contractors. Our systems are suitable for home owners, swimming pool owners, housing developers, housing associations, hospitals, schools, offices, factories and hotel chains. All our systems are designed to minimize your environmental footprint whilst maximizing your potential energy and cost savings.

Solar Photovoltaic Electricity (PV)

Solar electricity systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

PV cells are panels you can attach to your roof or walls. Each cell is made from one or two layers of semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced.

The strength of a PV cell is measured in kilowatt peak (kWp) – that’s the amount of energy the cell generates in full sunlight.

We offer a full range of Solar Photovoltaic Electric PV systems using the highest quality components. With the changes in the Government Feed in Tariffs there has never been a better time to invest in this form of clean green renewable energy.

Solar Thermal Heating

Our bespoke Solar Thermal heating systems are designed for domestic hot water heating, domestic space (central) heating, swimming pool heating and industrial process water heating. We pioneered the development of domestic dual solar heating systems that not only produce hot water but actually integrate & contribute to your domestic central or under floor heating.

To compliment any solar thermal system we can also offer our eco-master range of intelligent boiler management control systems that provide additional savings on boiler or heating costs using advanced weather compensation and variable thermal response optimisation.

Whatever type of existing heating or hot water system, we have a solar thermal solution that will be able to fully integrate into the home.

More than just solar energy

In addition we undertake all forms of heating system design, specification and installation including oil, gas or electric boiler replacements.

We have always taken a very different approach to other ‘solar’ companies in the market place. Most solar company installation teams consist of a roofer and a basic solar installer. We are different.

Because of the advanced technical nature of our systems our installers are fully qualified electrical and heating engineers in their own right. As a company we hold Oftec, Elecsa, BPEC and the Gas Safe Standards to name a few. An increasing large part of our business, we install and commission the latest high efficiency boilers and air & ground source heat pumps.

We have further expanded our renewable’s range to include rainwater harvesting and wind turbine energy production.

‘A’ rated boiler replacements

Remeha offer exceptional energy efficiency, reliability and performance. As main UK Merchants SolarEssence recommends the Remeha Avanta Range of SEDBUK ‘A’ high efficiency gas condensing combination, system and heating boilers representing Remeha’s new seventh generation in domestic condensing boiler development. The Avanta Range makes use of the latest domestic boiler technology to create one of the most compact boilers available on the market.

Air and ground source heat pumps

Many have heard of ground source heat pumps and the high efficiency levels they can offer but few have realised that air source heat pumps can also offer significantly higher levels of efficiency when compared to traditional methods of heating our homes. In fact they can completely replace an existing boiler.

Air source heat pumps are much easier to install than ground source so they are more suitable for a wide variety of properties from flats to detached houses. Providing a 30-50% reduction in CO² emissions
