Full renewable installation of Solar, Air source heat pump and battery storage in Porthleven, Cornwall

A 16-panel, 6.24kW solar PV array, air source heat pump, and battery storage were designed and fitted as a full renewable installation energy solution in Porthleven.

Following an initial consultation, GreenGenUK was tasked with designing another sustainable energy solution. Our recent collaboration with the homeowner integrated a comprehensive solar PV, air source heat pump, and battery storage system. This case study explores the seamless integration of these renewable technologies, highlighting environmental benefits and economic advantages.

The renewable installation included:

16 x 390w JA Solar black framed panels

1 x 3.6kW GivEnergy hybrid inverter

1 x 9.5Wh GivEnergy solar battery

Schletter concrete tile mounting system

1 x Mitsubishi PUZ R32 5kW Compact Air to Water Heat Pump

1 x 210l Horizontal Unvented DHW Cylinder

System Design

After discussions, the 16-panel solar array was strategically positioned on the east-to-west facing roof to maximize sunlight exposure throughout the day. This converts sunlight into clean electricity to power the residence. The air source heat pump complements this by efficiently tapping ambient heat from the air, providing heating and hot water needs. A state-of-the-art hybrid battery storage system optimizes energy utilization, storing excess energy generated during peak sunlight hours for later use. This design ensures a reliable and renewable energy supply, significantly reducing the carbon footprint and promoting environmentally conscious living.

The GivEnergy hybrid battery storage unit uses the same inverter as the solar panel array, optimizing current energy conversion and allowing for future expansion of the storage system. With fewer components needed for installation, this hybrid battery is cost-effective and space-saving.

Additionally, the Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pump enhances comfort, reduces carbon footprint, and lowers heating bills, as evidenced by the homeowner’s recent energy statements.
