Shine Brighter with Solar Solutions

Did you know there’s so much more to Fidelity Energy than just selling energy? Offering a range of services designed to help businesses save money, use less energy, and reduce their carbon footprint, all while meeting sustainability goals. These initiatives can support your customers in achieving their green objectives and can also be a great way to initiate business before their existing energy contracts are up for renewal.

We first touched on how Voltage Optimisation can save your customers money and use less energy, this week we’ll be taking a closer look at Solar PV Systems.

Making Solar PV a Reality?

Solar PV systems offer an incredible opportunity for businesses to generate their own energy, reduce their electricity bills, and enhance their sustainability credentials. When set up correctly, a solar PV installation can reduce energy bills by up to 40% in the first year alone. This not only provides substantial savings but also significantly reduces grid dependency, making the transition to renewable energy both smooth and profitable, with an average commission of up to 10%*. Here’s how Fidelity Energy makes it a reality:

The first step is for Fidelity Energy to understand your client’s business operations, energy usage, and long-term objectives. Once they have this information, they produce a tailored system proposal that highlights potential savings, payback terms, and the impact on their carbon footprint.

Fidelity Energy doesn’t just propose the largest system possible. Instead, they provide designs that offer the best return based on actual usage, ensuring maximum efficiency and savings for your clients. This means they get a system perfectly suited to their needs.

Once a sustainable system is agreed upon, Fidelity Energy handles all communication with the district network operator (DNO), ensuring a smooth and hassle-free integration. Fidelity Energy’s goal is to complete installations with minimal disruption to daily business operations.

Generating Your Energy: A Powerful Partnership

When your clients generate their energy, they start reaping the monetary gains immediately. They gain complete control over their generation with real-time analysis, enjoy significantly lower energy bills, and boost their green business credentials.

Choosing Fidelity Energy for Solar PV Installation

Here are some of the unique benefits of partnering with Fidelity Energy:

  • Flexible Funding Options: From roof improvements to multi-site installations.
  • Integrated Technologies: Including EV charging and voltage optimisation.
  • Data-Driven Proposals: Tailored to your client’s operations and priorities.
  • Expert Design and Installation Over 20 years of renewable technology experience.
  • Shared Marketing Assets: Promote your clients’ sustainability initiatives.
  • Long-Term Partnership: Supporting your clients from installation to a net-zero future.

Fidelity Energy believes that the cost savings and eco-benefits of solar PV should be accessible to all businesses. Fidelity Energy is here to make a daunting task manageable, helping you and your customers achieve their strategic and financial goals.

How to Convert Lifts for the IP World

While the PSTN/ISDN switch off date may have been shifted, it doesn’t mean we should switch off from it too. There’s lots to consider and it’s our job to support you to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. Read on to discover how we’re helping resellers like you to convert lift phones for the all-IP world.

THE CHALLENGE

Most lift phones are connected to PSTN or analogue lines. In the instance of a power cut, these lines are currently unaffected but what happens when the switch off takes place?

Without the right precautions and equipment in place, lift users could be left unable to alert others of their whereabouts and incapable of making emergency calls.

Now, we are faced with 2 options; replace the lifts entirely, or continue to use the existing equipment; we know which option the Finance Director would opt for!

Replacing a lift to address the switch off is unlikely to get the green light; the costs involved would simply not be economically viable. Offering to adapt the existing equipment, on the other hand could be your golden ticket.

THE SOLUTIONS

There are 3 key components you’re going to need to convert lift phones to IP:

ATA


UPS

Router

Here we’ve outlined 3 different set ups to select from:

1. The Budget Friendly Option

Using a Fanvil GA11 ATA and Mylion UPS, you can ensure users are able to make emergency calls in the event of a power cut. The ATA will convert the analogue phone to IP, while the Mylion UPS will provide back-up power to the connected router and ATA for up to 4 hours.


2. The Mid-Range Option

For those who don’t want to touch the buildings internet connection, why not add VoIP by installing a VoLTE router? With the TP-Link MR6500V and the addition of a 4G SIM card, lifts can be isolated from the rest of the network. Backed up by a Mylion UPS device, you have a robust solution to quickly adapt lifts with minimal wiring required.


3. The High-End Option

For those looking to provide back up for critical communications, we recommend the DrayTek LAC router range. With 4G backup, users will still be able to make calls, even if the exchange is down. Between the router and lift, there will be an ATA to convert the analogue line to SIP. This will then be backed up by a UPS to offer the most resilient solution of them all.


GET STARTED

Our expert technical team are on hand to help you develop the solutions you require. With our project consultancy services, we can help ensure that your solutions will meet expectations prior to installation. Paired with our zero-touch provisioning and SIM Fulfilment Services, we can make sure your installations are a breeze. Talk to us today to discuss your requirements.

When it comes to lifts, there will always be a third-party lift maintenance company involved. Before applying any of these solutions, we would recommend arranging a combined visit with them to coordinate the upgrade together. Who knows, there may be even more business opportunity to be had there too!

Reduce costs with Voltage Optimisation

Did you know there’s more to Fidelity Energy than just selling energy? They offer a range of services designed to help businesses use less energy, save money, and reduce their carbon footprint, meeting sustainability goals. These initiatives can help you to support your customers in achieving their sustainability goals and can also be a good route to initiate business before their existing energy contract is up for renewal. Over the coming weeks, we’re going to be taking a look at each of these sustainable services; first up is Voltage Optimisation.

Why Voltage Optimisation?

UK appliances typically need 220 volts to operate efficiently, but the average voltage supplied by the National Grid is 242 volts, with peaks up to 261 volts! By optimising the voltage supply to electrical equipment, businesses can reduce their energy consumption by up to 19%. This excess voltage not only wastes energy but also shortens the lifespan of a business’s devices. Voltage optimisation (VO) is a transformer-based technology which optimises the incoming supply from the national grid to match the voltage required by equipment at your customers; organisation.

How It Works:

1.Initial Assessment

Fidelity Energy will send a plug-in voltage tester to your customer’s site. Once received, they will need to simply plug it into any power socket, take a photo of the voltage reading, and send it back to Fidelity Energy, along with pictures of the fuse board, electricity meter, and the surrounding area.

2.Proposal

Based on the average voltage supplied by the National Grid, Fidelity Energy will provide you and your customer with an estimated saving and present the expected ROI.

3.Installation

Once approved, a 50% payment is required to order the kit. We’ll set a delivery and installation date, with the final balance due a week before delivery. Fidelity Energy’s qualified technicians will then install and commission the Voltage Optimiser, ensuring everything runs smoothly – you can then benefit from a healthy commission with little effort required.

Real Results:

The cheapest kWh is the one you don’t use. By installing a Voltage Optimiser, businesses can avoid paying for unnecessary electricity and enhance the longevity of their appliances. Let us help you in benefitting from this fully project managed, low touch opportunity; The bigger the ROI for your customers, the higher the margin* you can expect to benefit from.

Hotel Example

A hotel with an annual consumption of nearly 3 million kWh saw significant savings with the installation of 7 VO units.

School Example

A school using 678,297 kWh annually achieved substantial cost reductions with 3 meters and 11 VO units.
