Benefits of Solar PV

Why move to Solar PV

Financial Reasons

  • By installing solar panels you can avoid rising energy prices in the future as you will be generating your own electricity.
  • Every unit of electricity that the solar panels produce and use is one less that you need to buy which will allow you to live off-grid. This simply means being self-sufficient and not relaying on public utilities.
  • The Government introduced the Feed-In Tariff Scheme in April 2010. This scheme requires Licensed Electricity Suppliers (FIT Licensees) to pay a non-taxable generation tariff to small-scale low-carbon generators for the electricity they produce through Solar PV, whether or not the electricity is exported to the National Grid.
  • The units that you do not use will automatically be sold back to the grid and you will get paid an export tariff of around 3p per kWh on top of the Feed-In Tariff.

Environmental Reasons

  • Solar energy is an infinite resource.
  • Energy generated via solar panels (also known as Photovoltaic Solar) is one of the most sustainable ways we have of generating electricity today as these generate energy without emissions of any kind.
  • Climate change is arguably one of the biggest challenges facing mankind. The UK is committed to cutting its emissions by 34% by 2020 and 80% by 2050. Renewable energy, solar in particular, is central to achieving the Government’s low carbon strategy.
