Solar Electricity

Cheap Green Electricity

Can you imagine a world without electricity? Our everyday lives rely on this valuable energy source, and the modern age simply would not exist without it. But it comes at a cost – both to our pockets and to the environment. Fortunately, solar generated electricity can solve both these issues.

Solar electricity systems are also known as solar photovoltaics (or solar PV). They work by capturing the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells, which convert this captured energy into electricity to run household appliances. Direct sunlight is not required – so no worries about the UK climate not being suitable!

How Does Solar Work?

Solar photovoltaic panels, generally fitted to a roof, contain solar PV cells. When light shines on them, an electric field is created producing a direct electrical current (DC). An inverter converts this into an alternating current (AC) and routes it to your fuse box (consumer unit) so it’s ready and waiting to power your household appliances.

If you don't have a pitched roof or if there are any planning regulations which prohibit you fitting solar panels, often they can be mounted free-standing in a suitable location. Also, if you're considering re-tiling your roof, solar tiles are available as an alternative and these blend very well with surrounding properties.

What are the Benefits?

Once installed, your solar panels will generate a free supply of electricity for your household. Even if you require an extra source of electricity, the savings will steadily increase over time. What’s more, a solar PV system can also save in excess of a tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) over the course of a year, which means that you are contributing to a greener and more sustainable future.

You can also take advantage of the government's Feed-In Tariff (FIT) scheme. You’ll be paid for any electricity you generate – even if you use it yourself! Any excess electricity you produce will be exported to the grid and sold, making you a profit. Your system could generate savings and income of around £660 in your 1st year – tax free, with an average saving of £1,020 over the 20 years.
