Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Panels – Generating Power For Your Home
Solar PV Panels are suitable for most homes and are a great investment for the future. You will benefit from lower energy bills and will also be protected against rising fuel prices. The government provides a tax-free income through a Feed-In Tariff (FIT). If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid.
The Benefits of Installing Solar Panels:
• Reduces your bills – sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
• Hot water throughout the year – the system works all year round, although you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
• Reduces your carbon footprint – solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Solar PV Panels use photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s energy. PV cells don’t need direct sunlight to work and can still generate some electricity on cloudy days. The cells work by converting sunlight into electricity, which can be used to power your home’s appliances and lighting.
By installing solar PV you will reduce your homes carbon footprint. As an example, a typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne of carbon dioxide per year – that’s more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
Solar Thermal Panels – Pre-Heating Your Water – Saving You Money
Solar thermal systems works by using the sun’s energy to heat your hot water. The system works best in summer, when it can heat up to 90% of the hot water you use, however, you will still save money all year round. The system is likely to reduce the home owners energy bills by approximately 20%.
Not only will the thermal system provide a free source of water heating, it is estimated that it will save 4.62 tonnes CO2 (when replacing gas) and 10.45 tonnes CO2 (when replacing electricity) – significantly helping to save both the planet for our children.
The government has introduced financial incentives which provide an income through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.
