Let’s talk Solar, the Mullingar-based solar energy company that developed the world’s first and only award-winning solar-powered dual central heating and hot water system, has completed work on a 35-unit housing scheme on the Aran Islands, in a contract worth €175,000 for the business.

Speaking on completion of the project, Let’s talk Solar managing director, Michael Keane said: “At Let’s talk Solar, we are passionate about the development of sustainable energy efficiency. The project, which took just eight weeks to complete, involved retro-fit installation of solar hot water systems, boiler upgrades and heating control mechanisms.”

He continued: “As each central heating and hot water system installed is produced to a bespoke design that caters to the specific heating requirements of the individual customer, these latest installations are not only guaranteed to greatly improve the energy efficiency and B.E.R. of the 35 properties but go on to deliver significant annual cost savings for decades to come.”

Let’s talk Solar technology derives energy from daylight, rather than sunshine, making it particularly well-suited to Ireland’s climate. Not only does this daylight technology provide customers with affordable, year-round access to consistent home heating comfort that costs 80 percent less than traditional heating solutions but its state-of-the-art thermal storage technology completely eliminates the loss of any heat from the property, providing a constant supply of free hot water as a valuable by-product.

“Let’s talk Solar’s contribution to this innovative project on the Aran Islands illustrates our unwavering commitment to the delivery of world-class quality at exceptional value, and we look forward to offering our award-winning products and services to home and business customers throughout Ireland in the months and years to come.”
