We’re recruiting – electricians & plumbers wanted

After a busy summer we can see that heat pumps are going to form a big part of our business. With this in mind we’d like more willing hands to help us deliver renewable technology around Hertfordshire. You don’t need to have been involved in renewable energy before – we can give you practical experience […]

New heap pumps for old

Posted by: In Heat Pumps

In another first for Solinvictus, we recently replaced an existing Air Source Heat Pump with a new LG Therma V. The decade old unit had been dysfunctional for several months and had been deemed unrepairable by the client and their service engineers. The whole energy costs of a heat pump are significant and although we’re […]

Due to the Coronavirus situation and after the Prime Minister’s message yesterday evening, we have closed our office and our staff are working from home for at least the next three weeks. Whilst this precludes regular installations and site visits, we will be responding to emergency call such as boiler breakdowns where customers are left […]

Open for business – as (un)usual

Posted by: In Uncategorized

The coronavirus pandemic is having huge effects on everybody in the country but we’re not in the kind of business that you can do by working at home. Fortunately, the privileged position of working by ourselves on a roof-top or alone in a plant room means we don’t intrude on the owners/occupiers of the building. […]

No labour pains with Heat Pod delivery

Posted by: In Biomass

The latest addition to our project list is the installation of an ETA 140kW pellet boiler to heat Brickendon Grange Golf Club. They don’t have space for a plant room in their fine old Club House itself so we suggested one of Innasol’s Heat Pods – a shipping container with the boiler, buffer and pellet […]

Zoe and the big PV array

Posted by: In Photovoltaic

Our last PV installation was for a Renault Zoe. Her owners wanted electricity for their house, a smart immersion switch and to charge their new electric car. Our calculations showed that a regular 4kWp array just couldn’t do all of the above and we wanted Zoe to have a big share of the available energy […]

David Attenborough’s sandwich?

Posted by: In Uncategorized

Inspired by David Attenborough’s amazing Blue Planet series, the Copenhagen division of Solinvictus (Jack and Michelle) despaired that so much cling film was used to wrap sandwiches. They researched traditional materials and with a little help from their practical friend ‘Crafty Mark’, they grated, pressed, rolled and squidged bee’s wax into a piece of jaunty […]

Posted by: In Photovoltaic

A major refurbishment of one of the buildings at the Church of Our Lady Immaculate & St Andrew has created a pair of very comfortable flats for their retired ministers. As well as the all-new interior, it included a 5.3kWp PV array on the roof which provides electricity for the flats and the rest of […]

Waste not want not, with a log gasification boiler

Posted by: In Biomass

Our client Eco Waste already do an extraordinary job of recycling 85% of the contents of a builders skip. As well as the ‘easy’ things to separate like metals, plastic and wood, they hand pick through the rubble and produce graded ballast which is of use in the construction of roads. It’s only the sand […]

Many hands make lights work

Posted by: In Photovoltaic

When Earthworks asked one of their important fund raisers, Ed Suttie, to turn on the new car park lights, they were kind enough to invite us to the ceremony too. Ed is raising money by walking to the North Pole in April (Ed 2 North Pole)¬†and took time out from his training regime to mark […]

SunSolar panels looking great in Britain

Posted by: In Photovoltaic

In a change to the usual, German, Axitec panels we fit when asked for all-black panels we have recently tried these new, SunSolar modules. With thicker than usual 4mm glass and an industry leading 25 year product warranty, we were impressed by the build quality and the way they looked. It’s nice to support British […]

Solinvictus continues to try and save the world, one roof at a time – and we look forward to a long and […]

Off grid solar systems in St Albans

Posted by: In Photovoltaic

There is a remarkable charity in St Albans called Earthworks who provide horticultural training for those with learning difficulties. When their old shed burnt down in 2011 they replaced it with a beautiful oak-framed barn to provide a place to shelter in the winter.
