Solar Panels or Solar PV. It’s good for your pocket and it’s good for the planet but just how does it work.
A solar PV system will generates free energy from daylight for you to use in your home. The more solar energy you use during the day, the less you will need to draw from the grid. Saving you hundreds of pounds a year.
By using your free solar generated electricity you are protecting yourself against energy price rises and the current energy crisis.
A cleaner environment
Unlike burning fossil fuel, your solar PV system will not produce any carbon emissions. A typical solar system can save over 30 tonnes of CO2 emissions over twenty years. Thats about the same as the average new car. It’s great to do your bit for the environment.
Harness the sun – Solar made easy
During the day, solar panels on your roof turns sunlight into DC electricity.
An inverter changes the DC electricity to AC for use in your home.
Use this energy to power your home instead of drawing energy from the national grid.
Any excess energy you generate will either be sent back to the grid (for which you can get paid for) or can be stored in a battery for use at night.
Take control of your energy bills
In 2018, electricity prices hit a 10 year high. Staggering price hikes from the Big 6 energy companies dominated monthly headline news.
The Office of National Statistics shows us that over the past 15 years energy prices have increased by 280% and wholesale prices have increased by 50% in the past 12 months alone.
Now has never been a better time to install a solar PV system. By generating free, clean solar energy, with the addition of battery storage and time-of-use tariffs, you can be sure that your home is protected against future energy price rises.
