IDDEA Ltd – Renewable energy solutions that don’t cost the earth! IDDEA Ltd based in Devizes, have built up an unrivalled reputation for high quality solar PV installations. So far this year they have installed over 750kWp of PV on domestic and commercial roofs throughout the region. The Company started in the renewable sector in 2007 and is headed by Directors Ian Dunstone and Pete Cadwgan, with a growing team of installers who are given on-going training and support to be at the top of their league. Although the government incentive Feed in Tariff has recently dropped, PV is still a viable option, saving you money on your electricity costs and earning you an income by generating electricity that is metered. Air Source heat pumps provide ‘greener’ and cheaper heat, with efficiencies of up to 400% when used in conjunction with PV (Solar Panels). Solar water heating systems can generate between 50-60% of your hot water through a panel which is often installed on the roof of your property. It will reduce your energy bills significantly. Heating your property with a green, locally sourced and sustainable fuel supply - Biomass Heating - can be of huge environmental and financial benefit when compared to heating with oil and propane gas. A government RHI (renewable heat incentive) may be available for your property. Each property has its own unique characteristics; from the outset, Peter or Ian will advise which technologies are appropriate for the property. Their office in Devizes has a full working PV system that can be viewed along with panels, different types of mounting equipment and a selection of inverters.

Marlborough Stoves Marlborough Stoves is a specialist company, dedicated to the installation of wood and multi-fuel burning stoves. Our showroom is located in the Wiltshire town of Marlborough, and displays appliances in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and styles, both modern and traditional, so we can be sure that our friendly and knowledgeable staff will find an appliance to suit you and your home. They believe that wood and multi-fuel appliances are a heat source that address modern day needs and requirements. The fuel is affordable and renewable, to the extent that the Carbon Trust has rated them officially Carbon Neutral. The efficiency of wood-burners ranges between 70% and 80%, which is a phenomenal difference when compared with the average 20% of an open fire, and 35% of a gas appliance. Their expert team are able to carry out any construction works in-house. They can supply and fit hearths of many different non combustible materials, samples of which can be viewed in their showroom. They can also supply and fit surrounds or mantels.They also stock a wide range of accessories, cleaning and maintenance products. Dragon Designs: Born of necessity! The necessity to locate suppliers of sustainable building materials, conventional builders merchants and being unable to supply the products we needed to build our highly sustainable home without the use of cement, concrete or modern insulation. Our research took us through frustrating times on the internet until we had amassed enough information and suppliers to begin building. Dragon Designs offers help and advice together with building services, based on our own experience of self building a green oak and straw bale house incorporating water recycling to drinking standard (not done in Great Britain) and a variety of natural insulation and raw sewage reed beds. Our service extends sustainability into the garden using permaculture, wild flower meadows and willow planting for fuel and living sculptures. This helps promote a balanced lifestyle. We welcome all who are interested in a more sustainable lifestyle to contact us to view our home in progress and discuss the systems we have used. The materials we use are truly sustainable and not just a relatively conventional product to which an ‘eco’ label has been attached. We bring tried and tested, now often forgotten, building techniques into the 21st century.
