It has been 3 months now since we first launched the Solar iBoost and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from installers and customers who have saved money on their energy bills. Solar iBoost will be making an appearance at Solar Power UK in October at the Birmingham NEC. Also, watch out for our new website in the coming weeks!
Production at our factory here in Corby has been particularly busy this season building hundreds of our new model of Rutland
– the Furlmatic 910-4. This fourth generation of the product is without doubt the most stylish but holds no compromises on
the robustness of the model that has been successful for 25 years in the tough high wind environments. Installations stretch
from Antarctica to the Himalayas to Scottish roadsides.
Contracts in 2013 include a number of European street lighting projects integrating over 600 of these turbines into hybrid
wind/solar systems designed to deliver energy all year round, whatever the weather. All this in addition to our regular customers
installing them on remote locations such as gate openers and telecommunications equipment is keeping the Marlec team fully.
They say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” but we want to warn our customers about poor quality counterfeit products coming into Europe from the Far East. The copy Rutland 913’s were seen by our Sales Director recently in Germany and we believe they have entered Europe through Poland. Teresa Auciello, who has been with Marlec for over 25 years said, “We are very disappointed to see these products, it’s clear the counterfeiters have no appreciation for the design features but their models are brazen copies of our Rutland’s. Fortunately within the EU we are able to take action against resellers but we are concerned that genuine customers may be misled into buying poor performing products”

A month or so on from our Solar iBoost release Marlec have prepared a demonstrative video for the Solar iBoost. The feedback from our customers has been overwhelmingly positive with huge savings and short installation times recorded. There is also no messy installation work or wiring to add or change in the household. To save money on your hot water bills using your PV array contact your local electrician now about the Solar iBoost. Installers can buy now on our Installer Portal
Eco Build saw an impressive turnout this year at the Excel Centre. The Marlec team were on hand to exhibit the Solar iBoost, Green Column, Bosch and Hanwha PV Panels and the Rutland 914i. With over 1500 exhibitors this year and a noted increase in numbers on last year Eco Build 2013 was a roaring success. It was great to meet with installers, householders and developers all looking to increase their green credentials and save money on energy.
Solar iBoost launched at Eco Build 2013
The Solar iBoost was mounted on the Marlec stand and generated a lot of interest from householders and installers alike. The Solar iBoost utilises the excess energy generated from your solar PV array and dumps it into your hot water tank therefore reducing the amount of energy required. It transmits a wireless signal from your meter to tell the Solar iBoost to start drawing electricity, this ensures that you only use the energy generated from your solar array. In addition to this money saving technology it also acts as a heating controller to boost your hot water when you run out, it also boasts a backlit LED display to see the amount of energy you have saved. This product will be available in June.

Marlec also exhibited it's Green Column at Eco Build. The Green Column offers lighting in areas where there is no alternative power source available. The Green Column uses wind and solar energy to charge batteries from which a number of LED lights are run. Green Columns are already in use all over the UK providing lighting for footpaths, playgrounds and car parks. To speak to one of our team about the Green Column call 01536 201588
Our busy boat show stand was complimented by our co-operation with World Cruising Club who featured sailboats that had completed the ARC (Atlantic Rally Cruisers) race over the last few years. The feature provided an interesting and useful perspective for prospective cruisers as a number of skippers were in attendance to answer questions on living aboard.
Over 93,000 people passed through the exhibition over the 9 days of exhibiting despite adverse weather conditions. It was a pleasure to meet customers, old and new, and we look forward to continuing the success we had at the LBS into the rest of 2013.
What are MPPT Regulators?
MPPT regulators (controllers) enable the use of high voltage and thin film solar PV modules for off-grid battery charging for both 12V and 24V applications. These solar controllers allow the user to take advantage of the lower prices of the higher wattage panels, typically used in the on-grid market, to make larger arrays of up to 400W.
The MPPT Regulators are just some of the Morningstar products stocked here at Marlec. Our technical team are here to help you select what's right for your charging system.
Connect a regulator between solar panel and battery to prevent overcharge and provide deep discharge protection. All solar regulators are diode protected to prevent reverse current in darkness and allow other charge sources to same battery.
