Solar Panel Installation
Generate your own electricity and save money on your energy bills with Solar PV
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) technology converts sunlight into electrical energy. It can be used to generate electricity, heat water, and cool buildings. The UK has seen a rapid increase in the use of solar PV systems in recent years, with installed capacity increasing from 1.5 GW in 2013 to 6.9 GW by the end of 2017, according to the Department of Energy and Climate Change. Solar PV has become one of the most popular services in response to rising energy costs.
What are the benefits of having Solar PV installed?
When homeowners purchase solar panels for their energy needs, they will save money on electricity bills in the long run. Many solar panel systems will generate more electricity than is needed to power the home, which can be sold back to the grid for a profit. The UK Government has introduced schemes to help homeowners receive payment for any extra energy produced.
An Export Tariff allows the sale of excess energy back to the supplier. The value is set by the energy supplier through the Smart Export Guarantee. Solar battery storage systems can store generated energy for later use. Homeowners can benefit from this tariff by having a valid MCS Certificate.
Summary of benefits:
- Savings on energy bills by generating your own electricity
- Reduced cost of solar panels
- Get paid for excess energy generated and exported back to the grid
- Environmentally friendly
- Low maintenance cost
- Warranty and guarantees for peace of mind.
