How PV Solar Works

Electricity generation in the UK today is still largely sourced from fossil fuels, which causes the release of harmful gases into the atmosphere – including CO2. The use of solar electricity generation will help to reduce the emission of these gases thereby helping government to meet their binding 2020 emission reduction targets.

We use a system called Photovoltaic (or PV for short), which generates electricity by converting daylight into electricity. The solar panels which are normally located on your roof are comprised of solar cells.Each cell is made from one or two layers of semiconducting 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.

Storage Systems?

Get the absolute most out of your Solar PV system by installing a world leading storage system such as LG Chem battery storage units.

There has never been a better time to buy PV solar.

With interest rates remaining low and the stock markets worldwide still unpredictable and volatile in the aftermath of the global credit crunch it is difficult for people to know where they can safely invest their capital to get a good return on their investment without risking their capital. The UK government Clean Energy Cashback Scheme is the answer. It provides you with a guaranteed, tax free, index linked income for 20 years and equates to an excellent return on capital invested. Simply put, this is still an excellent investment vehicle comparable anywhere in the UK.

The Feed-in Tariff allows homeowners, businesses and communities to receive money from the government for every unit of energy they generate through green technologies, and an extra payment is available for any surplus electricity that’s fed back into the grid.

Solar PV is sophisticated technology and is not “one size fits all”. We therefore come to your home or business premises and conduct a thorough survey of your property. We will then provide you with a written quotation and a SAP calculation which will confirm the amount of electricity the installation we recommend would generate.
