Weymouth Ecologist Offers Renewable Energy Advice

A Weymouth ecologist is hoping to help home owners across Dorset cut their fuel bills and become more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
Paul Bullimore from H2Eco. No washday blues as the electricity is free from solar panels and the water is harvested rainwater from the roof.
Paul Bullimore has many year's experience working in marine biology, and has an active interest in fishing, wildlife and marine conservation and green issues.
Along with fellow eco enthusiasts, Mike and Julie Stephenson, Paul established H2Eco based at Holton Heath in Dorset.
H2Eco specialises in solar energy, including PV solar panels and solar thermal (which is used for heating hot water.) They also supply and fit rainwater harvesting systems where all collected water can be re-used within the home to flush toilets and run washing machines etc; plus they install home energy management sytems which significantly reduce energy bills and help you use power more efficiently.
Paul said, "Everyone knows that the earth's resources are being stretched to their limit. Not only that, but the large energy companies have a monopoly and our household energy bills just keep rising. We passionately believe that renewable energy must become more mainstream. It can help reduce household costs and also reduce your carbon footprint."
H2Eco is registered with the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme), and the team take the approach of offering advice and clear information to home owners, and are opposed to any pushy sales techniques.
Paul added, "There are many myths out there about solar energy, and we pride ourselves in an honest and informed approach. We provide free surveys and from there we produce a report which clearly outlines the costs and potential return on your investment. We also provide a complimentary Energy Performance Certificate as part of our installation package."
To demonstrate the various technologies in practice, H2Eco uses solar PV, solar thermal, rainwater harvesting and energy management at their unit on the Glenmore Business Park. Paul said, "We invite anyone interest to come by the unit where we can demonstrate the systems in action and show the computerised data which clearly shows how much money we have saved, or energy we have sold back to the national grid. It means our overheads are minimal in terms of electricity and water costs. We even run our washing machine using collected rainwater, and the tumble dryer using solar power."
Paul and the team are also working on an exciting new project to support the burgeoning electric car industry. The prototype of their new project is scheduled to be launched at the end of the month.
Anyone who would like to book an appointment for a survey or who would just like some no-obligation advice on renewable energy options including solar visit the H2Eco website or call them on 01202 918 486.
