Jacko - Another of our newest apprentices
Jack Whalley is a new apprentice that has come on board with lots of existing life experience - does that mean hes old?  NO... not really, hes just not a whipper snapper straight out of school, but it does mean that he already knows what hard work is and has experience, which helps him in the day to day activities that he carries out - including installing solar panels, helping with electrical installation services or installations of EVC (Electric Vehicle Chargers) . He still attends Warrington and Vale Royal College and is studying for his electrical qualification

How Green is Your Supply Chain

How Green is Your Supply Chain
Becoming or working towards being a greener business is nothing new, but more emphasis is now being put onto taking environmental issues more seriously as an corporate social responsibility for many businesses.  It doesn't matter what sector you are in, whether you are a Sports Centre, Builders Merchant, warehouse, manufacturer, retailer or a large corporate business you need to show real action and commitment and not just talk about it

Using sustainable packaging, or planting a tree, or giving back to a good cause is no longer enough. Savvy consumers, increased public awareness, and ...

So this cold weather has taken us a little by surprise and I expect that some of you are finding that your home storage batteries are not operating as they usually do, they are either not charging or discharging or even doing some crazy things.

Batteries need a little looking after and a lot of the beeping you may be hearing is them telling you they are too cold....

The fact is that most of them don't like to operate below 0 degrees - but what can you do to help?

1. Warm the room/area that they are in if possible - up to an ambient temperature - but don't directly po...

What is a Prosumer?

The term prosumer has many meanings.  However, in our world (electrotechnical, Solar PV), a prosumer is an entity or party which can be both producer and consumer of electrical energy. Prosumers predominantly generate their electricity through solar PV ( photovoltaic) solar panels on their roofs. Many of these prosumers are purely focussed on becoming more ( or entirely) self sustaining 'off-grid' while others are working to become significant contributors to the grid, selling surplus energy generated

The drivers of this vary

Consumers are aware o...

Solar Frequently Asked Questions

News & EventsPosted:  12 October 2022 @ 14:17 BSTAuthor:  TB Electrics

To help you understand more about how our solar installations work, here are the answers to some of the common questions we get asked.
How does Solar PV Work?A solar PV system starts with sunlight hitting the panels on your roof or on the ground, the sunlight then causes the panels to generate electricity, this electricity is DC power. The DC power electricity then runs down the cables to an inverter where the DC power is changed to AC power that is the same as what is used in your house. At this point the AC electricity that is being produced from the panels will either be sent into the house if you are using electricity, if you are not using electricity, it will be sent back to the grid unless you have a battery connected to the inverter, in that case the electricity from the solar can be stored in the battery and used later.

Types of Solar PV Inverters?The Inverter is the heart of the solar PV system, this is where a major part of the work takes place. There are three main types of systems for solar PV inverters.

String Inverter (this inverter allows you to connect solar panels and inver...
