Welcome to the Point Blank World Community Point Blank Off Grid | Green Energy | Low Carbon, our aim is to give you all the information that you need to make informed decisions regarding having the green energy you need whilst minimising your impact on the environment.We will look at commercially available grid power such as n-power whilst also looking at green alternatives such as ground source heat pumps and solar panels.

Point Blank is combined thinking, total energy thinking that leads to better performance and lower household energy bills; this leads to more money for businesses, schools and hospitals...... think about it!

Help us in our work.

Greens everywhere are proving that clean, green energy is the future...

Solar grants available

There are other incentives available from several organisations that encourage the installation of various renewable energy installations as well.

>The Energy Saving Trust programme will run over three years and replaces the previous DTI Clear Skies and solar energy grants programme.

These solar energy grants are open to households, public, not for profit and commercial organisations across the UK (except the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man). These programmes will demonstrate how affordable solar panels, energy efficiency and microgeneration can work together to create low carbon buildings.

This includes;

  • Solar Panels for Water Heating
  • Wood Fuel Boilers
  • Automated Wood Pellet Stoves
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps
  • Wind and Micro-Hydro power

These grants are available because the government is pushing for the uptake of solar energy to reduce our reliance on traditional forms of energy.

Encouraging the UK to adopt renewable energy

Onshore wind in the UK

The UK is the windiest country in Europe, so much so that we could power our country several times over using this free fuel. A modern 2.5MW turbine at a reasonable site will generate 6.5 million units of electricity each year, enough to meet the annual needs of over 1,400 households, make 230 million cups of tea or run a computer for 2,250 years.

Every unit of electricity from a wind turbine displaces one from conventional power stations: in January 2009, wind turbines in the UK had the capacity to prevent the emission of 3,682,563 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum.

History of UK wind energy

Since the first wind farm in the UK was built at Delabole in 1991, onshore wind energy has established itself as a mature, clean energy generating technology. In 2007 wind energy overtook hydropower to become the largest renewable generation source, contributing 2.2% of the UK's electricity supply, with onshore wind comprising the bulk of this. Wind has been the world's fastest growing renewable energy source for the last seven years, and this trend is expected to continue with falling costs of wind energy, energy security threats and the urgent international need to save the environment and tackle CO2 emissions to prevent climate change.

Wind turbine noise assessments

If you’re planning to install a wind turbine, you may need to have a noise impact assessment in order to evaluate the disturbance to the immediate environment.

Domestic Solar PV

  • Contrary to some speculation in the media solar PV has a major role to play in the UKs transition to the low carbon economy. The feed in tariff has been lowered, but so have costs of the equipment meaning you can still achieve attractive returns and take up this technology.
  • We are strong believers in this technology owing to its key strategic role as catalyst in training skilled low carbon workforce, ease of deployment relative to other energy options and ability to tackle fuel poverty and generate strong and solid income streams for well in excess of 25 years backed by manufacturer guarantees.

    REA - Renewable Energy Association

    REA established 2001 as a not-for-profit trade association, representing British renewable energy producers & promoting the use of renewable energy in the UK. They help their members build commercially and environmentally sustainable businesses whilst increasing the contribution of renewable energy to the UKs electricity, heat, transport & green gas needs.
