Solar Energy Electricity

To tell if solar electricity is right for you, there are a few key questions to consider:

  • Do you have a sunny place to put it? You will need a roof or wall that faces within 90 degrees of south, and isn't overshadowed by trees or buildings. If the surface is in shadow for parts of the day, your system will generate less energy.
  • Is your roof strong enough? Solar panels are not light and the roof must be strong enough to take their weight, especially if the panel is placed on top of existing tiles. If in doubt, ask a construction expert or an installer.
  • Do you need planning permission? In England, Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland, you do not need planning permission for most home solar electricity systems, as long as they are below a certain size. You should check with your local planning officer, especially if your home is a listed building, or is in a conservation area or World Heritage Site.

Solar Energy will help you to invest in reducing your own carbon footprint, solar electricity is green, a renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) or other pollutants.

A typical home PV system could save over 1 tonne of CO2 per year - that's more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.

New solar technologies and energy solar panels are helping vast amounts of UK households to cut down on their energy bills. Sunlight is free, so once you have paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be greatly reduced. A typical home PV system can produce a proportion of the electricity a household uses in a year, dependent on a number of variables.

Store electricity for a cloudy day, if your home is not connected to the national grid you can store excess electricity in batteries to use when required.
