Where Do Solar Panels Work Best?
Solar Panels convert sunlight to electricity so they work best where there is most exposure to sunlight such as a south facing rooftop. However even on North facing roofs, a cloudy day or shaded area you can still generate electricity.
How Long Will It Take to Pay Back?
On average it takes between 5 and 10 years for the average domestic solution when installed with a battery. This is where you sell back any unused electricity to the grid so the pay back is based on reduction in heating bills plus income from additional energy. How long it will take to pay back will also depend on the size of the system/type of system and exposure to sunlight.
We are an independent installer of Solar panels and will select the right product for your property. As part of the solar panel installation we offer panel installation, pigeon protection, battery storage and electric vehicle charging points.
Benefits of Solar Panels
Lower Electricity Bills
Energy from the sun is free so there will be a reduction in monthly energy bills as you won’t be having to pay for as much energy from the national grid. Usually solar panels can cover most, if not all of your energy needs.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The solar electricity you generate from solar PV systems is low carbon, renewable energy. This results in a typical home solar panel system potentially saving around one tonne of carbon per year, depending on where you live in the UK.
You may need to have your solar PV panels cleaned occasionally but usually solar panels for homes require little maintenance and have a lifespan of 25+ years. There is no wear and tear for solar panels as there are no moving parts.
Receive Extra Money
The national grid will pay you annually for the energy that you don’t use or store so you can receive payments for the extra energy you generate. The money you receive and the money you save will eventually pay back the cost of the system.
Complements Other Systems
Solar panels are complementary with heat pumps as it produces electricity which can provide a source of power to heat pumps. However there can still be benefits, such as lower energy bills when you install solar panels along with a conventional heating system.
You will be creating your own source of energy when you have solar panels installed. This means you don’t need to be reliant or dependent on the national grid. You have control over your energy source and don’t need to worry about rising energy costs.
Solar Panel Battery Storage
Solar panel batteries allow you to store your unused energy that is generated through the day and use it at night when energy is cheaper. This helps you to live more sustainably and have complete control of your energy source. Designed to be installed on your wall or ground mounted, these batteries usually have a 10 year life span.
When you install battery storage to support your solar panel system, you will benefit from greater savings as you will be relying less on your energy supplier. This also means if there is a power outage you don’t need to worry, you will be running off your own energy. In the long term, adding a battery for solar storage will help you get the most out of your solar panel system and maximise the performance.
