Apollo Solar Electric Ltd. Announces the release of an innovative new energy management product to cut home energy bills.

The Apollo GEM is an innovative new energy management product providing additional energy cost savings for homeowners with solar PV systems.

November 2, 2012

Most Micro-generation systems produce more power than can be used directly in the household with the result that the surplus is exported to the electricity distribution network. During the summer months PV installations in households which are unoccupied during the day could be exporting 80% or more of the energy generated. GEM automatically uses any surplus energy available to produce hot water instead of exporting it. This results in the use of less imported power for water heating and significant energy cost savings.

"The Apollo GEM Generated Energy Management system represents a significant innovation for owners of PV systems and other micro-generation technologies" reported Bob Morris, Apollo Solar Electric MD. "Previously the homeowner would have exported much of the locally generated power, only to buy in power later for water heating. GEM ensures that almost all of the generated power is used in the home, reducing imported power"

The GEM system is a cost effective energy saving solution with a typical payback of between two and three years. The system is simple to retro-fit to existing PV installations or to install with new PV systems.

With further energy price increases announced in the UK this week of over 10%, installing GEM makes a lot of sense for PV system owners, helping to insure against further inevitable fuel cost increases.

Apollo Solar Electric have been providing innovative energy management solutions since 2001 and with the introduction of the GEM product line we can offer a cost effective energy management solution for domestic micro-generation systems and solar PV installations in particular.

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
