Dimplex moves towards zero carbon with new solar PV packs

Dimplex Renewables is adding to its extensive portfolio with the launch of a new range of solar photovoltaic (PV) packages. Containing polycrystalline modules and everything required for installation, the kits offer a complete PV solution for residential and light commercial buildings, providing clean, locally-generated energy and reducing carbon emissions.

The kits contain everything that’s needed to install and connect the modules, including G83 approved inverter, roof mounting system, cabling, isolators and generation meter. The hardware is MCS-accredited so the kits are eligible for the feed-in tariffs when properly installed by an MCS-accredited installer. This will allow homeowners, businesses and public sector organisations to take advantage of a generation tariff of up to 41p per kWh for locally-generated electricity, providing a guaranteed source of income for 25 years.

Designed for both new build and retrofit projects, the packs feature low profile roof mounts – protruding less than 200mm above the roof. This means the installed systems are classed as permitted development in England and Scotland and do not require planning permission in non-conservation areas.

The polycrystalline modules have a surface area of 1.6m2, which is greater than most modules available and deliver an output of 230W, with a module efficiency of 14.2%. The modules are supplied with a product warranty of five years and offer guaranteed 95 percent performance for five years and 80 percent performance for 25 years.

Dimplex offers Logic Certification-approved solar PV training courses at its headquarters in Southampton for installers wanting to get an industry-recognised installation qualification. The four day courses include in-depth general coverage of the technology and a focus on the Dimplex kits, to ensure high quality installations.

To help overcome budget restrictions and spread the costs of a solar PV installation, Dimplex offers Renewable Energy Finance, a scheme that allows the investment costs to be re-paid over a period of years and the savings in energy costs provided by the system – once installed – can also be used to part fund the scheme.
