    Waxman Energy: The Renewable Energy Solutions Experts

    Within this issue of Sustainability Today, we have selected Waxman Energy, a dedicated solar & EV distribution company, as our Sustainable Energy Company of the Year.

    Waxman Energy is part of the Waxman Group, a family run business that was first established over 60 years ago. Waxman Energy has gained unprecedented success since the company’s inception and has become one of the UK’s largest distributors of solar PV modules, battery storage and mounting solutions. Maintaining an expansive range of products Waxman Energy provides solutions for all residential and commercial solar installations.

    Due to the challenges that are facing the UK solar market, many competitors and companies have had to close. Determined to ride out the storm, Waxman Energy has embraced the uncertainty and dominates the solar market through their relentless ambition and devotion to increasing their product portfolio and exploration of other market options including the EV market and product training. 

    Speaking of the factors that have enabled Waxman Energy to continue its growth during the harder times that the industry is facing, Sarah Wallace, the newly appointed Sales Director for Waxman Energy noted, “within the company and team, we are very proactive. Although there have admittedly been many challenges within the industry, we feel we have a strong working business model and that we ultimately know our main goal and focus.”

    The team at Waxman Energy is truly the driving force behind the business, offering a plethora of services and the company has become highly regarded as a one-stop-shop for PV solar installations. Stocking an all-encompassing range of equipment and products to assist contractors in the installation of PV energy systems, Waxman Energy supplies: solar PV modules, grid-tied inverters, PV power storage, mounting systems, PV accessories and EV chargers.  

    From their head office in Elland, West Yorkshire, Waxman Energy looks after their customers from the initial design process to delivery. Using their shared expertise and technical knowledge the team at Waxman Energy provides the best consultancy and advice for their clients’ solar project.  With customer satisfaction being of the utmost importance to Waxman Energy, the company maintains a selection of specialist services including designs, technical help, quotation consultancy and an honest helpful support team. Waxman Energy goes the extra step forward in terms of its services and has invested in a purpose-built training centre, specifically designed to teach installers how to correctly install a range of products from battery storage to mounting solutions and EV chargers.

    “Our main focus,” Sarah stated, “is to work with as many installers as possible. We offer a range of services including training sessions to make sure that installers have a long term plan.”

    Waxman Energy takes pride in the products that they distribute and is determined to provide the highest quality products available from a selection of the world’s leading brands. Through the company’s dedication to quality, it strives to create relationships with manufacturers and customers that are long-lasting, trusting and efficient, to showcase the quality and excellence that Waxman Energy encompasses. 

    In terms of latest developments for Waxman Energy, the company has created many valued partnerships in recent years with their most notable this year being their collaboration with Myenergi, which has enabled Waxman Energy to introduce the Zappi EV car charger into their product range. Zappi is an eco-smart EV charge point that features specialist eco charging modes adaptable for homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems. Working alongside the ‘zappi’ are the myenergi ‘eddi’ and ‘harvi’ products allowing homeowners to easily divert surplus energy around the home and monitor through an in-house hub and mobile app.    

    Another notable partnership for Waxman is with leading manufacturing company VARTA Storage. A manufacturer of energy storage devices for both households and larger scale storage requirements, Waxman has introduced the battery storage system by Varta Storage into its product range and now distributes both the Varta Pulse 3 and Pulse 6.

    Upon receiving the award for ‘Company of the Year’, Sarah commented, “we are really excited and proud to receive the award. It feels amazing to have achieved something like this and it is a testament to all the hard work and dedication spent helping to maintain Waxman Energy’s market presence”.

    Praising her dedicated team, Sarah believes the achievements and success gained over the past year have all been down to the hard work and determination put in by the growing Waxman Energy team. “I’d like to thank everyone for all of their work” Sarah added, “and for us to continue the hard work into the future to gain even further success”.

    After an extremely challenging yet positive year for Waxman Energy, it is clear to see the company’s devotion to the solar energy industry and their commitment to providing the most innovative solutions and products for energy efficiency.

  • Waxman Charges Ahead with Integrated Technology and Unveils New myenergi Showroom!

    Waxman Charges Ahead with Integrated Technology and Unveils New myenergi Showroom! 

    This month, we’re looking at the fantastic ‘myenergi, whose core focus is to create a sustainable future through eco-smart technology. 

    Describing themselves as a team of ‘experts, activists and inventors’, together they have a mission - to create not only a kinder, greener future for their customers through green technology but to ensure they save money in the process too.

    Despite supplying tens of thousands of homes and businesses across the globe, each and every product is still designed and manufactured in their Lincolnshire workshop and lead by the original co-founders, Jordan Brompton and Lee Sutton.

    By utilising the myenergi product range such as the ‘eddi’ and ‘harvi’, homeowners can easily divert energy around the home to be used where it's needed it most -  complemented by the myenergi hub and app for easy monitoring. Working seamlessly with an existing PV system, each product in the myenergi range works together to harness surplus energy from solar panels to heat your rooms, hot water and even power the ‘zappi’ EV charger. 

    Below we break down each product, with more technical features available directly from our website.

     

    eddi
    Microgeneration energy diverter

    Rather than exporting excess energy to the grid, with the ‘eddi’ from myenergi, you can easily divert free solar energy to heat your hot water tank or rooms within your home. 

    Through the use of a grid current sensor clipped around the incoming supply cable, ‘eddi’ is able to monitor excess power and adjust the voltage to the heater load, making full use of the surplus energy. 

    View more on the ‘eddi’ from myenergi


    harvi
    Energy harvesting wireless sensor

    Small and wall-mountable, the ‘harvi’ wireless power sensor, allows both the ‘zappi’ and ‘eddi’ to measure the grid and/or generation power, without the need for a wired current transformer (CT). 

    All this is done using harvested energy from the sensor, which in turn, transmits the import/export information to the load controlling devices without the need for any batteries or electrical wiring. 

    View more on the ‘harvi’ from myenergi 


    zappi
    Eco-smart charging station for electric vehicles

     

    Available in 7kW and 22 kW, tethered or untethered models, the ‘zappi’ from myenergi is an eco-smart EV charger with three charging modes; ECO, ECO+ and FAST.

    In the eco modes, the charging current is automatically and continually adjusted in relation to household power consumption - with FAST charge available at maximum power, (7kW max power with the single phase version or 22kW with the three-phase) the same as a regular ‘mode 3’ charging point. 

    Offering dynamic load balancing and advanced integral safety features, the ‘zappi’ EV charger is streets ahead in terms of both flexibility and functionality. Without the need for an earth rod in most installations, install costs are also reduced - a feature currently unmatched by other chargers available on the market.

    hub
    Remotely control & monitor your myenergi devices

    Through the myenergi ‘hub’, homeowners can easily control and monitor available surplus energy and direct around their home.

    Automatically checking and installing the latest myenergi updates, you can be sure that each myenergi home system is as up-to-date as possible, with access to new features as soon as they become available. 

    View more on the ‘hub’ from myenergi


    myenergi app
    Remotely control & monitor your myenergi devices - straight from your phone

    Take full advantage of ‘on-the-go’ control and monitoring, through the myenergi app. From pre-setting your heating and hot water via ‘eddi’, to changing your ‘zappi’ charging modes, homeowners can observe domestic live energy flow and diverted energy data through the app. 

    Working alongside the myenergi ‘hub’, the myenergi app can be downloaded from both apple and android app stores free of charge. 


    The Waxman myenergi Showroom

    With the ‘zappi’ EV chargers selling out on pre-order months in advance and each myenergi training day filling up time and time again, the future looks increasingly bright for the new partnership. Ever so, that we decided to dedicate a wall in our PV and battery storage showroom to depicting how each product in the myenergi range links together so that visitors can see for themselves.

    Designed in house, the new showroom features the eddi, harvi and hub, as well as both a tethered and untethered zappi models in both black and white which you can view below.

    Want to view the showroom yourself or book onto the next training day?

    Get in touch with our fantastic team, and we’ll be sure to help.

  • Waxman Energy Named Sustainable Energy Company of the Month

    Waxman Energy Named Sustainable Energy Company of the Month

    What a great month it's been for Waxman Energy so far!
    With our upcoming fully booked product training days and a fantastic turn out at Fully Charged Live in partnership with VARTA Storage, it was fantastic to hear we had won 'Company of the Month' in the Business & Industry Insider's 'Sustainability Today'.

    Read the full article below.


    Waxman Energy – Making it Easier and Cheaper for You to Switch to Solar Power

     Sustainability Today is delighted to have selected Waxman Energy as our Sustainable Energy Company of the Month. Waxman Energy - of the Waxman Group – is the one stop shop, supplying everything needed to turn a facility’s energy green.

     The Waxman Group was formed over 60 years ago and the company is still under the stable management of the Waxman family. It would be a slight understatement to say that a lot has changed in the energy industry since Waxman Energy were established. What has remained constant, however, is the company’s strong emphasis on supplying installers of PV (photovoltaic, or solar powered) energy systems with the widest range of the highest quality products possible and for the most competitive price.

    This is in no small part due to the workforce and work environment cultivated at Waxman Energy’s headquarters in West Yorkshire; the team are as dedicated as they are passionate about the products they provide and pride themselves on building and maintaining excellent, productive and efficient relationships with manufacturers and customers alike. Indeed, Waxman Energy has always strived so as not to be considered a faceless company, disconnected from their clients and partners. Well, thanks to the consistent first-class customer service and attention to detail practised by the team at Waxman Energy, they have acquired a reputation for nothing less than excellence.

    Supplying both to commercial and residential builds and projects, Waxman Energy is big enough to supply the largest of projects – their 40,000 ft² of warehouse facilities can hold huge amounts of stock, ensuring the delivery of a reliable and consistent service and supply of PV products – yet still pay the same amount of attention to smaller projects and builds.

    With solar energy being the fastest growing of energy technologies, there is no better time to utilise the excellent advancements made in the technology, and both make savings to energy bills and do your bit to offset your carbon footprint. Couple the advances in PV technology with the stark reduction in cost and there is little wonder why residential properties are embracing PV technologies.

    But it is not simply the residential market which has seen a steep increase in demand for PV technologies, with businesses more often expected to play their part in offsetting emissions and take a responsible stance with regards to their carbon footprint. Waxman Energy allows a wide range of business and organisations – be they schools, factories or office blocks – to implement changes in how they obtain energy by offering a fully comprehensive PV package.

    Stocking everything a contractor would need to install a PV energy system, Waxman Energy supply: solar PV modules, grid-tied inverters, PV power storage, mounting systems, PV kits, and PV accessories. Waxman Energy have gone a step further, however, investing in a purpose-built training and showcasing room  designed to teach installers how to correctly install PV systems while also training sales staff, giving them in-depth knowledge regarding their products – all with the aim of providing the customer a service second to none in quality and professionalism.

  • Are you ready for Green GB Week?

     

    Are you ready for Green GB Week?

    On the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, this week marks the start of Green GB Week, led by Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, Claire Perry MP.

    Green GB week aims to bring both businesses and communities together to celebrate the UK leadership on climate change and discover new solutions and technologies to tackle climate change - one of the biggest challenges in the world today.

    Since 1990, the UK has cut their emissions by over 40%, with clean growth placed at forefront of both the governments Industrial Strategy and Clean Growth Strategy

    Clean Growth
    Clean growth is a term used widely in the media. But what does it mean?
    Simply put 'clean growth' is all about growing our national income, whilst still cutting our greenhouse gas emissions. The UK's early action on clean growth has lead to a vast increase in low carbon technologies with this sector supporting over 400, 000 jobs with no signs of slowing down.

    In 2018, the UK produced enough electricity without burning coal for a record-breaking 76 hours which is a landmark step for the UK and our commitment to tackling climate change.

    "Our goal is to leave our environment in a better state than we inherited it, and I’m proud to say that the UK has led the world in tackling one of the greatest threats – climate change."  - Claire Perry

  • Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Compact Energy Storage System VARTA pulse Now Shipping in the UK with String of Successful Installs

    Elland, UK: After a successful UK launch, the smart energy storage system - the VARTA pulse is now ready for shipment to the UK as part of an exclusivity agreement between German based VARTA Storage and Waxman Energy of Elland in West Yorkshire.

    After successful installations across five UK test sites, the first VARTA pulse was installed in a self-built project located in the Ulster countryside in Cumbria. Home to Bill and Sharon Tyrer, the project features a 6kw roof PV array and benefits from a south facing roof meaning that his chosen ‘VARTA pulse 6’ is often full by 10am. In the first 13 days of install alone, Bill and his wife had only purchased 17p from the grid.

    Speaking of the first VARTA Storage install, Bill Tyrer said:

    “The installation was straightforward and included intuitive software which allows me to take control of my energy usage by monitoring generation, feed in, self-consumption and grid consumption. Instantly after installation, I found that I increased my self-consumption and can see for 6 months of the year I can be grid independent, hence reducing my electricity expenditure"

    With over 130 years of battery expertise and significant investment into product development, VARTA Storage has always been one step ahead with an unparalleled desire to excel in safety, quality and reliability.  The VARTA pulse 3 & 6 is no exception and features an integrated multi-stage safety concept.

    As well as being safe, the VARTA pulse line is also smart, providing seamless integration with smart homes, e-mobility and data logging. Benefiting from an open system, users have total freedom and flexibility with the reassurance that the pulse will work with their existing products.

     

    Steve Saunders, Key Account Manager for VARTA Storage UK said,

    "It was great to meet Bill and his wife Sharon and to witness first-hand how they were using the pulse system to maximise their self-consumption from their own generated energy - leading to huge savings.

    Bill's company "Dalliam" were used for installation work during the UK testing phase with Bill being so impressed with the storage system, he purchased a pulse 6 on release day for his own self-build project - what a great seal of approval for pulse"

    Wall mountable and adjustable, the VARTA pulse is available in two capacity sizes; 3.3 kWh and 6.5 kWh and measures just 60 x 69 x 18.6 centimetres, making the unit perfectly suited to domestic environments where space is limited.

    Its compact size allows for a fast one-man install, setting it apart from its competitors. Coupled with a European support base and 10-year warranty, the pulse is the perfect choice for those who wish to generate, store and monitor their own energy with full control.

    The VARTA pulse is available for purchase by contacting Waxman Energy directly or online
