The SOLiC 200 from Earthwise Products Ltd has made the finals of the Retro Expo Awards in the Building Services Product Innovation of the Year category.
The Retro Expo Awards celebrate best practice and excellence in retrofit products, innovation, design and delivery across the domestic, commercial and public sector markets. Over 30 businesses from across the UK have been shortlisted for the 2013 Retro Expo Awards.
Iain McRitchie, Managing Director of Earthwise Products Ltd, comments, “We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the Retro Expo Awards. The SOLiC 200 is the most efficient device of its kind on the market as it operates with a zero export threshold and it checks for excess solar power 20 times a second, so recognition of this kind is a testament to the quality of our work.”
Darren Richards, Director at Retro Expo Ltd said: “We are very proud to announce the Retro Expo Awards shortlist. Each is a testament to the fact that the UK is full of thriving and innovative retrofit products and services. The quality of the entries has been outstanding and it’s great to see that the often overlooked retrofit market can be so inspiring and innovative.”
Earthwise Products Ltd launched the SOLiC 200 in November 2012.
The SOLiC 200 automatically provides free hot water from new and existing PV panels by diverting excess solar energy to the immersion heater before it‘s exported to the grid.
The SOLiC 200 is manufactured in the UK and complies with CE and British Standards. The unit has been engineered to last the life of a solar installation (25 years) and includes a 10 year return to base replacement guarantee.
Winners will be announced at The Retro Expo Award ceremony taking place following the Retrofit Summit on the evening of 05 December 2013 at the Business Design Centre in London.
