Solar PV panels – or solar photovoltaic – harness the sun’s energy to convert into electricity to power your household.
What Is Solar PV?
Solar PV panels harness the sun’s energy, to convert into electricity to power your household. Unlike outdated solar solutions, PV panels don’t need direct sunlight – they can harness energy even on a cloudy day.
For any surplus electricity generated by your panels – effectively, more electricity than required – you can sell back to the grid. Your energy provider will pay up to 5.16p per kWh, on a quarterly or annual basis.
Solar PV Benefits
Creating your own electricity from the sunlight comes with any benefits to creating a eco-friendly environment.
Reduce your electricity use
Reduce your carbon footprint
"3,700 kilowatt hours of electricity can be produced every year – that's the same amount of electricity as it takes to turn the London Eye 49 times. It will save around 1 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. "
Why Install Solar PV?
As the sun is a renewable energy source, your household electricity rates will be reduced.
You will also receive benefits from Government incentives, such as the Smart Export Guarantee where you can sell your surplus energy back to the grid. This way, you can make a small income from your Solar PV panels.
The carbon output from your home will be significantly reduced, as solar energy doesn’t produce harmful pollutants.
Solar power has recently been found to increase the value of UK households.
Cut your electricity bills
Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced. Find out how much you could save by using the Solar Energy Calculator.
Cut your carbon footprint
Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save around 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year (depending where you are within the UK).
