Congratulations To Our Competition Winner!
We’d like to wish a massive congratulations to Mr. Taggart from Middlesbrough who won our latest competiton to win a full set of LED light fittings for his house.
Mr. Taggart joins a string of people that are turning to LED lights to help save money on their energy bills. Lighting is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to reduce your energy consumption. An average house can replace all of their bulbs for around £250, and reduce the cost of their lighting by anything from 70 to 90% which is a fantastic amount!
We delivered the prize to Mr. Taggart who commented “I can’t wait to install these new bulbs as I’m sick of my old energy savers that takes ages to warm up. I’m delighted to have won as I was looking at buying LED lights already. many thanks to UCS Renewables”.

Kirkleatham Museum Works To Start
Work on Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s renovation of the Bellamy Pavilion building at Kirkleatham Museum is about to commence. The works will see the entire glass roof completely replaced with new energy efficient glass, and the South elevation will incorporate building integrated photovoltaic cells (BIPV)courtesy of UCS Renewables.
Work at Bellamy Pavilion has already seen the old heating system replaced with more efficient central heating, but with an old glass roof it was always going to be impossible to make the beautiful exhibition space energy efficient. UCS Renewables tendered for the supply and installation of the BIPV element of the roof replacement in 2012 and the work is finally about to begin.
Matt Hawkins commented “We are delighted and extremely proud to be involved in such a fantastic project. BIPV is a developing product and it is testament to the robust sustainability policy of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council who researched the benefits and committed the budget to make it happen. The new roof will look fantastic, and the renewable solar energy provided by the BIPV will help further reduce the building’s carbon footprint”.
The BIPV panels have been manufactured by specialist glass company Romag. The Leadgate, Co. Durham, based firm have put a great deal of time and effort into working with UCS Renewables to provide the best possible quality of product and this demonstrates the superb working relationship between two North East renewable energy providers, Romag as manufacturer and UCS Renewables as an installer.
“On Roof” Or “In Roof”… You Decide
With solar panels seeming to appear everywhere it is clear that they represent a great investment. That’s why our industry has grown so rapidly over the last 3 years.
While most solar PV systems are an “On Roof” system (i.e. they are mounted above the existing roof), we are one of the leading specialist installers of “In Roof” systems. In roof, or roof integrated, systems actually replace the slate or tiles and become your roof covering. Many customers prefer the look of this type of system as the solar panels seamlessly integrate into your building and look fantastic!
Maybe you have an conservatory that just gets too hot in the Summer? Why not talk to us about BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) panels? These glass panels have PV cells laminated into them which provide shade while maintaining a bright room, and generting power at the same time! Amazing!
Whether you are looking to repair, replace, or build a new structure there are so many ways to integrate solar PV and earn a great return. Traditional building materials can be substituted with BIPV to maximise the potential of your project, and deliver some stunning visual effects too.
So call us today on 0845 9011144 or click here and we’ll be delighted to discuss with you.

Use the snow to see how efficient your house is!
Did you know, you can use the snow to see how efficient your home is?
Check this out…
The more snow left on your roof and the longer it lasts, the better your insulation!
If its all melted before you’ve even finished your snowman then you need to contact us to see how we can help you to save money, or stop wasting it more importantly!
How does this work?
Simple. If you have good insulation then less heat is lost through your loft, meaning the snow doesn’t melt so quickly. If your insulation is poor then lots of heat will escape, warming your roof and melting the snow.
Speak to the experts at UCS Renewables and see how you can improve the efficiency of your home or business, without costing the Earth!

Allow us to introduce ourselves…
We’ve been doing a lot of work on our new website and we hope you agree that its looking pretty nifty now.
We want you to learn more about us in fresh and innovative ways, the same way that we look at potential projects. Keeping it interesting is what encourages us to get the best out of our products for our customers! Therefore, our philosophy is that if you’re interested in what we do then you’ll want to speak with us and see how we can help you.
Take a look at this little introduction that we’ve put together to give you a bit more information about what we do (Flash required).
Need an Energy Performance Certificate?
UCS Renewables are delighted to annouce that we are able to offer a full domestic EPC service. Our residential team, lead by Amanda Kidd, can survey your home and produce a comprehensive EPC and all accompanying documentation.
EPC’s are a legal requirement of landlord’s and home sellers who must have an EPC in place. The EPC shows the current energy performance of a property and what the potential could be if certain improvements are made.
If you are planning a solar photovoltaic installation then you will also need an EPC to determine the level of feed in tariff that you will qualify for.
Contact us for more information or to arrange your EPC survey.
Boost for commercial energy efficiency
We have been working with our partner companies as part of the NERA initiative for some time now to devise new ways that businesses can benefit from energy efficient products without the sting of large up-front bills.
Innovations like modern solar panels and heat pumps provide excellent opportunities for businesses to reduce costs and carbon emissions, but many companies are put off by the relatively high capital cost even though the long term benefits are very attractive.
UCS Renewables are delighted to annouce that we can help to provide finance for these sort of improvements. The best part is that the cost can be covered by the savings that are acheived, so there are no bills to worry about. Once the finance is repaid (over a maximum of 7 years), businesses will continue to reap the rewards of reduced bills and carbon footprint in addition to the long term financial incentives such as feed in tariff and renewable heat incentive.
