Did you know…
the sun provides enough energy in one minute to supply the world’s energy needs for an entire year?
Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panels collect energy from the sun and use it to generate solar electricity. This electricity is fed into your home and can be used to power home appliances or lighting. You can reduce your energy bills, and even make money by selling excess electricity back into the national grid! They produce clean energy with no waste and no carbon emissions.
How do I know if my property is suitable?
Our trained solar surveyors will carry out a free ‘desktop survey’. Using satellite imagery, they can assess which direction your roof is facing and how many panels could fit on your roof. They then use this information to calculate how much money you could potentially save.
How well do they work in the UK?
Thousands of UK homeowners have already invested in solar panels. They work best on a roof that faces south, south-west or south-east, and they can collect energy without direct sunlight — i.e. when it is cloudy — as long as there is daylight.
We buy our solar panels from brands such as LG, Sharp and SunPower — the industry leading manufacturer used by NASA. The videos below show some of the performance testing their panels are put through.
How much money can I make?
The table below will give you an estimate of how much money you could save. A typical 4kWh system on a south facing roof could save you over £800 per year, and pay for itself in under 10 years. Contact us for a detailed breakdown of how much money your property could make.
SAP 2009 Calc. Yield
This is an estimate of how many units (kWh) your panels will generate. The figure has been calculated using the government’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP).
Annual Electricity Savings
This is the estimated amount you will save on your electricity bill, assuming that half of the electricity you generate is exported back into the grid, and half is used in your home. It is calculated using the typical price of 12.27p/unit from your energy supplier.
Annual Feed-In Tariff
The feed-in tariff is money paid to you by your energy supplier for generating renewable energy. You will be paid a set-rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. The figure above is calculated at 15.44p/unit.
Annual Export Earnings
This is the amount of money you make by selling electricity back into the National Grid, assuming that half of the electricity you generate is exported, and half is used in your home. The figure above is calculated at 4.5p/unit.
The total amount of money you could save in one year. This is the total of your electricity savings, feed-in tariff and export earnings.
Return on Investment
Estimated return on your investment, calculated using the typical installation cost of a 4kWh system.
