Housing Associations and Local Authorities recognised early that solar PV could help alleviate fuel poverty and provide a longer-term energy saving solution for their tenants. East Lothian Housing Association (ELHA) rolled out Sunamp Heat Batteries within their housing stock, to ensure tenants could benefit even when the sun does not shine.

Energy generated during daylight hours is often lost to the tenant and exported back to the grid. The compact Sunamp Heat Battery, stores the energy generated by solar PV, and delivers hot water when needed, without the need for a hot water cylinder or immersion heater. They continue to provide heat even when there is a power cut, which is an important benefit to the tenant and the housing provider.

As much as 75% of annual domestic hot water can be provided free of charge with this type of solution

The ‘self-consumption’ of PV energy within the home can be raised from 30% (with PV only) to over 70% (with our SunampPV products).

This is a huge benefit to the tenant that justifies the decision to install PV on ELHA’s homes. The replacement of old gas fires and back boilers with the Intergas ECO RF boiler rounds out the total energy saving package.

Increase utility storage space

Optimise heating during peak usage times

10-year warranty on the storage cells

Sunamp is able to store heat from a variety of sources

including many renewable and low-carbon technologies, Sunamp technology doesn’t limit design and build choices but enhances them.

Not only does the Sunamp system beat hot water tanks and electric batteries on size, power and price, its bespoke design can be tailored to meet exact requirements and additional storage can easily be added in the future if required.
