Say hello to the sun

As the world continues to deplete its fossil fuels and some countries try to spark a resurgence in the coal industry, you only need to step outside and tilt your head to the sky to remind yourself that the sun is by far and away the most important source of energy for life on earth.

It’s also worth remembering, that there’s a very simply way of harnessing this energy to drastically reduce your electricity bills and reliance on the National Grid – doing your bit to live more sustainably in the process.

Generate free electricity from sunlight

Solar PV (photovoltaic) systems (solar panels) capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity, allowing you to use your washing machine (and other electrical household appliances) throughout the day without the added stress of knowing you’re being charged over the odds to power it.

Get paid for the pleasure with the Feed-in Tariff

As well as saving a tidy sum on your ongoing bills, you will also be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it. Under the UK Government’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme, you will receive quarterly, index-linked payments for 20 years from the date when your scheme application is approved.

Even though the FIT has reduced since 2011, the heady combination of FIT payments, electricity savings and a reduction in the cost of the technology, means your investment will pay back in an average of seven years. Savvy as well as sustainable.

What happens next?

As a family run business with years of experience, we value the old fashion virtues of getting out to meet our customers. If you’d like to gaze at your socks drying on the line knowing that the sun has also helped wash them, simply get in touch using the details below to arrange a free, no-obligation survey.

How do solar panel (PV) cells work?
Read more »

PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can either be mounted on your roof or on the ground.

The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer. PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of an existing roof, but you can also fit solar tiles.

Once fitted, we will leave details of any maintenance checks that you should carry out from time to time to ensure everything is working properly. This will include details of the main inverter fault signals and key trouble-shooting guidance. Keeping a close eye on your system and the amount of electricity it’s generating (alongside the weather conditions) will familiarise you with what to expect and alert you to when something might be wrong.

Panels should last 25 years or more, however, the inverter may need replacing some time during this period.

Solar PV maintenance
Read more »

One of the great things about solar PV systems is that they’re low maintenance – you’ll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and ensure trees don’t begin to overshadow them. In the UK, panels that are tilted at 15° or more have the additional benefit of being cleaned by rainfall to ensure optimal performance. Debris is more likely to accumulate if you have ground mounted panels, as opposed to roof mounted panels.

How much will it cost?
Read more »

The average domestic solar PV system is 4kWp and costs approximately £5,000 (including VAT at 5%). Commercial solar PV systems can vary hugely in size and, therefore, in cost. Get in touch with our team to arrange a no obligation survey and quote for your solar PV system.

Some considerations when looking at the cost of a solar PV system are:

  • The more electricity the system can generate, the more it costs, but the more it could save;
  • Larger systems are usually more cost effective than smaller systems (up to 4kWp);
  • PV panels are all roughly the same price per kWp, but PV tiles cost much more than a typical system made up of panels;
  • Panels that are built into a roof are much more expensive than those that sit on top of a roof.

Panels should last 25 years or more, however, the inverter may need replacing some time during this period.

How long will it take?

From the moment you call or email the team, we will normally be able to book a survey for you within 1 – 3 working days.

Our surveyor will carry out an inspection of your property and give you a quote for your system within 1- 3 working days.

If you are happy to go ahead with your solar PV installation at the quoted price, our engineers will typically be scheduled to start work within 2 weeks and complete your installation within 1 working day (larger systems could mean your system takes longer to install).

Once your system is installed and signed off, we can assist you in your application to the Feed-in Tariff scheme (provided your system is eligible). The FiT application is submitted to your electricity provider, and the time it will take to process your application varies from provider to provider.

Panels should last 25 years or more, however, the inverter may need replacing some time during this period.
