    Achieve energy independence with a complete solar system

    A solar system can help you achieve energy independence by allowing you to generate your own electricity from sunlight, reducing your reliance on the grid.

    Generate your own electricity

    Through solar panels, you can generate your own electricity from sunlight, which means you won’t need to be as beholden to the grid. This can help reduce your energy bills and protect you from power outages or fluctuations in electricity prices.

    Store excess energy

    If your solar system generates more electricity than you need, you can store the excess energy in batteries. This means you can use the stored energy later when your solar panels aren’t producing as much electricity, such as at night or during winter.

    Free hot water

    With a solar immersion diverter, you can use the energy generated by your solar panels to heat your water, greatly reducing reliance on your boiler.

    We don’t just install solar panels, but a whole range of solar system upgrades that will take your green energy products to the next level! Call us today to arrange your free site survey on 0330 124 2941.

    Solar panel FAQs

    What is solar PV?

    Solar PV (photovoltaic) is a technology that converts sunlight directly into electricity using semiconductor materials. When sunlight hits the solar panels, the photons from the sunlight knock electrons free from the atoms in the semiconductor material, which generates a flow of electricity.

    How do solar panels work?

    Solar panels work by converting sunlight into electricity through a process known as the photovoltaic effect. A solar panel is made up of several solar cells, which are made of semiconductor materials, such as silicon. When sunlight hits the solar panel, it knocks electrons free from the atoms in the semiconductor material, creating a flow of electricity.

    You can find out more about how solar panels work in our blog.

    Are solar panels expensive to install?

    A single solar panel costs, on average, between £400-500. The exact cost of a new solar panel system will depend on several factors, including:

    • The size and number of panels
    • Whether you choose a solar PV or solar thermal system
    • How complex installation is
    • The specification of the system components
    • Location of the panels

    How much does it cost to run solar panels?

    Solar panels are very affordable to run, but some of their components have a shorter life expectancy than the panels themselves. Expect some essential repairs and upgrades down the line – these will not usually cost too much time or money. 

    To keep your panels in optimal working condition, it’s also important to arrange for regular maintenance. This is so any faults or performance inefficiencies can be spotted at an early stage. 

    Will solar panels save me money?

    The power generated by solar panels will start to lower your utility bills as soon as they are operational.  In general, you can expect to save anywhere from £300 to £500 annually. SEG payments can earn you an extra £100 per year! Check out our blog for more info.

    How long until solar panels pay for themselves?

    Solar panels usually pay for themselves after about 8-10 years, but the exact time it will take depends on where you live.  

    Although bright sunshine is not needed to capture the solar rays essential for power generation, systems on the south coast of England will produce a quicker return on investment than those in Aberdeen, because of longer sunshine hours.

    Are solar panels VAT free?

    As of the 1st January 2023, the supply and installation of residential solar panels is currently 0% VAT.

    Can I sell any excess energy my solar panels generate?

    Yes, though you will usually require a solar battery to do so. In 2020, the government-issued Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) was launched. 

    When you sign up to be a SEG Generator, you can sell the excess energy you generate back to the National Grid.

    How much you can get through an export tariff depends on the SEG Licensee you choose, so make sure to shop around for the best rates.

    Why are solar panels tilted?

    Solar panels are often tilted or angled to optimize their performance and increase their efficiency in converting sunlight into electricity. Tilting the panels can help to capture more sunlight and generate more electricity.

    Are solar panels good for the environment?

    Yes, solar panels are generally considered good for the environment. They generate electricity from the sun’s energy, which is a renewable and clean source of energy. Solar panels produce no emissions or pollution during operation, unlike traditional fossil fuels that release harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases into the environment.

    Are solar panels permitted development?

    In most cases, the installation of solar panels on a domestic property in the UK is considered “permitted development” and does not require planning permission. However, it is always worth checking with your relevant local authority prior to installation.

    Can solar panels power a house by themselves?

    It is possible for solar panels to power a house by themselves, but it depends on factors like the size of the solar panel system, the amount of energy used by the house, and the available sunlight in the area where it is located.

    On shorter or more overcast days, a backup power source like a solar battery or a connection to the electric grid, may be necessary to ensure that the house has a continuous and reliable source of electricity.

    Can solar panels work at night?

    Solar panels generate electricity from sunlight, so they do not produce electricity at night when there is no sunlight. However, if you have a solar battery installed, you can use the excess energy generated by your PV panels, so you can continue to use your solar energy even at night.

    How long do solar panels last?

    Solar panels are designed to be long-lasting and durable, with a typical lifespan of 25-30 years or more with sufficient maintenance.

    How much electricity can solar panels produce?

    In general, a typical solar panel system installed on a residential rooftop can produce between 1,000 and 5,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year.

    The amount of electricity that solar panels can produce depends on several factors, such as the size and efficiency of the panels, the amount of sunlight that the panels are exposed to, and the climate and weather conditions in the area.

    Can solar panels be installed on a flat roof?

    Yes, solar panels can be installed on flat roofs at an angle to receive the most direct sunlight possible.

    Will solar panels work in winter?

    Yes, your solar panels will still continue to produce electricity during winter, though due to shorter days and typically poorer weather, they will be less efficient than during the summer months.

    Can I control where my solar energy is used?

    Yes. Aside from your electrics, your solar panels can power a range of other devices. These include EV chargers and hot water systems, which can be controlled through an app on your smartphone.
