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.
