East Pennines

There is plenty of sunlight for solar energy systems to be effective in this region, particularly the closer you live to the coast. Both Solar thermal and particularly solar PV cells will operate effectively here.

Wind speeds are typically low but will depend on local geography and situation, so it is recommended to check the wind speed (for at least a year, ideally) before installing a wind turbine.

The East Pennines region is warm and both Ground Source Heat Pumps and Air Source Heat Pumps will operate effectively if well positioned and installed.
