Solar PV

Generate extra energy savings on your electricity bills with solar PV. R&I Cruden can provide expert advice when it comes to selecting and installing the best solar PV system for your home in the Highlands. If your project is a new build, where renewable options are part of the planning application or if you need to reduce your electricity bills, we can tailor the most appropriate system for you.

We have equipment we can connect to your electricity supply to monitor demand to find the most efficient and cost-effective solar and battery solution to save on your energy bills. Contact now to arrange a free no-obligation site survey to discuss the best option to suit your home or business.

Electric Battery Systems

Use solar power all day and night! Electricity created during the day is stored in a highly efficient battery, typically the same size as the inverter, and can be used during the night! Don’t have solar? Don’t worry! Use off-peak tariffs to charge batteries at a cheaper rate and run on battery power during peak tariffs.

All in one Solar station

R&I Cruden can now provide solar technology that has an inverter, battery and electric vehicle charger all in one unit. Great for space saving and monitoring energy saving in one easy to use app.

Sunamp Battery Storage

R&I Cruden are proud to become preferred installers for Sunamp – the market’s leading battery storage provider. Based in central Scotland, Sunamp has developed a thermal energy storage product with a vision to shape the path for future renewable energy. Their extensive range of heat batteries can facilitate domestic, commercial or industrial-scale projects, with further developments into the automotive industry. Their innovative products have been recognised by several prestigious awards and continue to impact markets across the globe.

The Sunamp heat battery not only stores energy, it delivers fast-flowing hot water on demand. With their unique technology, the Sunamp battery is able to store up to four times more energy than hot water tanks in similarly sized units as combi boilers. The battery heats water to a selectable temperature, between 35-55 degrees Celsius, and provides the equivalent of 90-138 litres of hot water – sufficient to fill a bath or run several showers daily.

Heat Batteries are the perfect alternative to replace conventional cylinders, upgrade a combi boiler, or integrate with renewable systems such as solar PV. This technology has a lifespan of over 40,000 cycles, equating to over 50 years of usage. It also offers a compact heating solution for space-saving needs within your home.

The Sunamp heat battery is an exciting development for the renewable energy industry, a technology that Managing Director Ian Cruden anticipates will be significant for R&I Cruden.

“The Scottish Government holds a long-term vision to reduce CO2 emissions and eliminate fuel poverty, reflecting an ethos that relates to both Sunamp and R&I Cruden. As renewable heating specialists, we felt this product was the perfect fit for our company, particularly applicable to modern housing with high levels of insulation. With solar feed-in tariffs removed at the end of March 2019, the thermal heat battery is also a great solution to reuse all excess generation from the solar PV system to heat the Sunamp battery. “
R&I Cruden Managing Director, Ian Cruden
