Installation of new sustainable energy source

28th April 2022

After six months of preparation, Dorothea Restorations is the proud owner of a new 24kWp Solar Photovoltaic Panel system designed to provide enough energy to cover our daily activities, whilst the sun is shining in Bristol. The system has been installed on the roof and is directly connected to a fuse board resulting in Dorothea using all the energy we need and any surplus energy being pushed back into the national grid.  The system is designed to reduce our carbon footprint by 12 tonnes annually and provides free energy to the National Grid in the summer evening while the sun is shining. 


This not only helps us in our effort to become more sustainable but also reduces our energy costs during a period when energy costs are affecting the conservation industry dramatically. The ability to absorb the increase in energy cost without the need to pass this on to our customers is invaluable and provides customers with even more value for money. We are currently looking at expanding the system to incorporate a battery storage system which should provide us with energy for electric vehicles or to use whilst our energy usage is higher than usual.
