Solar Twin Ltd. is a UK based solar company supplying solar thermal and photovoltaic (PV) systems. Our solar thermal systems are a little different as we use patented flexible silicone tubing throughout, meaning no anti-freeze is needed. This eliminates planned maintenance, as anti-freeze has to be replaced periodically. We also use a PV unit to power the entire solar system. Hence, no mains electricity is used, and customers get all the savings. We can often reuse a household cylinder, which often means a solar system can be installed in under a day, meaning less disruption. We supply fully installed systems, or DIY kits for the more able handyman. We can supply to vented, pressurised or combi systems. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
Improving existing schemes, identifying new schemes, reducing negative impacts and costs, and saving money can help local authorities to improve environmental performance. UKAS accreditation underpins assurance in the products and services procured being able to deliver solutions to reduce environmental impact.
The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) has a strong track record of working with local authorities, government departments and businesses in the development of schemes that are successfully contributing to improve sustainability. Operating in many different sectors of the UK economy, accreditation underpins the validity of testing, inspection, calibration and certification activities relating to air, soil and water quality, the development of renewable energy sources, environmental management systems and energy efficiency.
