Solar PV is a renewable energy system that absorbs sunlight to generate an electrical current, which is transferred into your property’s mains electricity supply. Surplus power is channelled away from your building and into the national grid. UK residents benefit from feed-in tariffs, and can earn an income from all excess electricity that is generated by their Solar PV system.
Solar systems reduce your reliance on coal-fired power stations and other fossil fuels, and you contribute directly to a greener future. It’s clean technology with no CO2 emissions or fuel costs, meaning you save money and help the environment at the same time.
The cost of installing standard Solar PV is currently around £5,500. It will save you money in two ways:
- If you use your electrical appliances during the daylight hours you can expect to reduce your electricity bill by 50%
- Government subsidies (Feed-In Tariff) provides a tax-free cash payment for every unit of electricity that your system generates. Payments are made on a quarterly basis for 25 years
