THE CHAIRMAN of Exmoor National Park Authority helped a Somerset company launch a new portable solar panel product yesterday (Thursday, March 14, 2013).

John Dyke assisted Solar Systems with the unveiling of its Pluginsolarpanels product, which can be mounted on sheds and garages or positioned freestanding in open spaces, at Wimbleball Lake.

John explained: “I was delighted to help Solar Systems launch its new Pluginsolarpanels.

“The South West Lakes Trust has installed the product at its Wimbleball Lake site to offset the electricity consumption of its all-terrain mobility vehicle.

“Exmoor National Park Authority encourages communities and land managers on the park to consider using renewable energy technologies. This is a great example of how the technology can make a difference without damaging the wildlife and natural beauty in the area.”

Solar Systems is a specialist in solar technologies. The company has a wealth of experience in the design and installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) and thermal panels for homeowners and businesses.

Phil Grabham, Managing Director of Solar Systems, which is based in Ilminster, said: “We were really pleased that John was able to help us to officially launch our Pluginsolarpanels.

“We developed Pluginsolarpanels to provide a solution for homeowners or businesses who want to use solar technology and make savings on their energy bills but have insufficient roof space, wrong roof aspect, live in rented premises or can’t afford to invest in a standard system.”

The panels are then plugged into a 13amp socket and the power generated gets fed into the normal circuitry so solar energy is prioritised for use before drawing from the grid.

The free electricity can be used to offset the power consumption of items such as computers, fridges and televisions or to reduce energy bills.
