Safe and sustainable energy

A green and happy home

Many people choose solar PV systems for their financial benefits, which include saving money on electricity bills as well as being paid for any generated energy that you don’t use. Just as great a benefit is the positive environmental impact that will be in effect from day one.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Solar panels create green renewable energy without releasing any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save over a ton of carbon dioxide per year, the equivalent of driving around 2,000 miles.

An unlimited source of energy

Granted, the sun will one day burn out, but it’s not going to happen any time soon. In the meantime (the next five billion years or so), solar energy is a highly accessible and clean source of power. On top of that, the solar PV panels generate energy from normal daylight, rather than solely sunlight, so they’re efficient all year round.

You’ll help power the nation

If your system generates more power than you require, it will be automatically fed into the National Grid. This is beneficial on a number of levels: no energy will be wasted by your home, you’ll be helping to power other homes, retail units, schools and hospitals, plus you’ll be paid for it.

How efficient will my home solar PV system be?

Some simple maths

One kWh (kilo watt hour) is used in all electricity bills as a unit. An appliance rated at 1kW will consume 1kWh for every hour it is on. The smallest grid-connected system we can install has a 1kW rating, which takes up around 8.2 square metres of roof space. Each kW rating on a south-facing roof generates roughly 800 kWh per annum, so the smallest system is still a sound investment.

How the energy is used

Even if the sun doesn’t appear for weeks, our panels create energy from normal daylight. This is then fed into your internal electricity system and used for everything from checking emails to washing clothes. For heating systems, we recommend ground source heat pumps.

Surplus energy

Your electricity company will fit an export meter or pay you based on estimated export rates (usually 50%). All unused electricity is automatically exported into the National Grid, usual at a rate of 4.85p per kWh. This means that you’ll be generating energy for your own home and being paid for any you don’t need.

Robust and reliable

Our solar PV panels are designed to withstand all natural conditions. This is Britain after all, so the system needs to be prepared for scorching sunshine one day and frosty winds the next. As long as the panels have access to daylight, you’ll be fuelling your home using a green and efficient system.

Solar energy for the industrial sector

Achieve a balance of power

Production lines, industrial plants, factories and workshops can all benefit from solar photovoltaic systems. Due to the nature of your industry, you’ll consume vast quantities of electricity on a daily basis, which solar PV panels can help to generate rather than you depending solely on the National Grid. This has multiple benefits.

Lower your utility costs

Any south-facing rooftop that isn’t obstructed by shade is ideal for a solar PV system. The greater the number of suitable spaces you have at your disposal, the greater the financial benefits. Green energy can also protect your premises from energy price rises and even provide an additional income stream. Find out more about how the Feed In Tariff can benefit your company financially.

Be environmentally responsible

Whilst dramatically reducing the cost of your annual energy bills, generating your own solar energy also lowers your carbon footprint and will help you to meet and extend your company’s green targets. If your business is one that has an inherent environmental impact, the installation of solar PV panels will help to offset it as much as possible.

Gain valuable PR

Adopting large eco-friendly systems is always newsworthy. Whilst you prosper from positive exposure by contacting your local newspaper, radio station, bloggers and industry publications, the public can find out more about the applications of green energy, providing a mutually beneficial opportunity.

Solar energy for offices

Green business

All types of businesses are doing everything they can to improve their green activity, from using less paper and printer toner, to providing segregated recycling bins, turning off lights and even composting if the premises contain green spaces. One solution that’s becoming increasingly popular is solar PV panels, which will benefit your finances as much as the environment.

Put your roof to good use

By installing solar PV systems across your rooftops, you’ll harness both sunlight and daylight and convert it into energy for your offices. Whilst you continue to encourage team members to save power by switching off lights and machinery, you can rest assured that all or a significant proportion of power used will be sustainable and eco-friendly.

Involve your staff

Solar energy makes an excellent topic for talks, seminars and workshops. From chatting to your staff about why you’ve chosen to install panels, to inviting an expert from Solar Power Lincoln to deliver an in-depth session on the applications of solar PV systems in the home and workplace, you can help spread the word of green energy.

Take advantage of financial incentives

Green energy can protect your business from energy price rises, whilst reducing utility bills and providing an additional income stream. Find out more about how the Feed In Tariff will benefit your business financially in three ways.

Solar energy for education

Lower your overheads

By installing solar PV systems across your premises, you will dramatically reduce the cost of your annual energy bills, helping to meet both in-house and government-instigated energy targets. Schools, colleges, universities and education centres can all benefit greatly from generating their own solar energy, and we’re here to offer expert guidance as well as a professional service with minimal disruption.

Environmental responsibility

Solar energy is clean, sustainable and efficient. Whilst feeding green power directly into your internal electricity system, the solar PV panels will help you to meet carbon reduction commitments with minimal effort.

Positive PR and a good example

An educational institution leading the way in solar energy is something for staff to be proud of and students to be inspired by. You can take this opportunity to work with the local press and media to promote the benefits of solar systems, educate students in the applications of renewable energy, and even incorporate it into your learning and events programmes through lessons, public workshops, conferences and corporate sponsorship.

Take advantage of financial incentives

Solar energy for agriculture

A sound investment

Farmers, landowners and rural businesses can benefit greatly from using solar photovoltaic panels across their sites. Whilst significantly improving energy efficiency and lowering carbon emissions, the savings and financial advantages are also extremely attractive incentives for going solar.

Perfectly suited to the countryside

Unlike urban areas, most farms and rural premises have little obstruction, making them highly efficient at gathering daylight and sunlight throughout the year. Large south-facing rooftops are ideal; however, we can install systems as small as 8.2 square metres, making every building an opportunity for solar energy generation.

We understand agriculture

From ensuring that the natural ventilation of cattle sheds remains clear, to using materials that can withstand chemicals used in agriculture, our solar PV systems are designed to work to the requirements of modern rural operations.
