Solar PV

Solar panels are the energy source of the future, and they even work well in the cloudy old UK. Join the millions now generating their own electricity

WHY SOLAR?

 

Our customers tell us that getting a solar PV installation is one of the most rewarding things they have ever done.

Photovoltaic systems, being a source of green electricity, save carbon dioxide emissions and help stop climate change. You generate your own electricity, becoming more self-sufficient, especially if used alongside battery storage – and that means lower bills.  There is the excitement of owning and operating pioneering new technology, and helping to kick-start positive change in the world.  And now, many people are using their generated electricity to power their electric vehicles

All this can be achieved whilst offering substantial financial savings, meaning you can be green and be rewarded for it at the same time.  It’s a win-win!

SOLAR PV, BATTERIES AND EVs

The pinnacle of a home energy system is one that incorporates solar PV, battery storage and electric vehicle charging.  This not only reduces the environmental footprint of your home, but it can do the same for your transport emissions as well.  We’re seeing lots of electric vehicle owners wanting to run their cars on solar, rather than grid electricity, once they’ve gone electric.

The Zappi EV charger is a great way of diverting excess solar electricity into your electric vehicle rather than back to the grid.  It works particularly well if you are parked at home during the day.

Battery storage allows you to use more of the electricity you generate, making you more self-sufficient in electricity.  You can be sure you always have a supply of electricity and can ride through power cuts.  And for EV owners, battery storage can be used as a temporary fuel tank to store solar energy if your vehicle is not at home during the day.

These are the key products that we recommend for the best home energy system.

ECONOMICS OF SOLAR PV ROOFS

 

Solar panels are the cheapest way of providing electricity to a building, and you generate electricity right where it is needed.  Over the lifetime of a PV system the electricity produced is 2-4 times cheaper than buying from the grid.

There are a number of ways to benefits financially once you have purchased your solar PV system

  • Using your solar generated electricity means you are not buying from your supplier anymore, at 15p/kWh for housholds (10p/kWh for businesses)
  • If you don’t use the electricity, it is exported back to the grid. The Smart Export Guarantee pays up to 5.5p/kWh

Because it is financially more attractive to use electricity yourself, rather than export it, there are a number of tricks to get the most from your solar.  This include diverting excess electricity, to a battery, to an electric car via the Zappi charger, or into your hot water tank.
