Are you thinking about investing in solar PV panels? With energy bills rising and the need to tackle climate change and reduce our carbon footprint, many of us are turning to renewable energy solutions.
Solar panels are a fantastic way for you to create your own electricity supply via the sun. Installing solar panels is straightforward and you can use them as soon as they are set up! Perfect!
A common question we get asked is, does the UK get enough sunshine to invest in solar power? Surprisingly, the answer is yes, we do. Even though we feel like it is hardly ever sunny there is enough sunshine to create your own solar energy. In fact, Germany is one of Europe’s leading solar energy country’s and they have a similar amount of sunshine to the UK.
When considering solar panels for your home or business, ideally your roof needs to be south, east or west facing to get the most sunshine. If your roof is north facing it won’t be as efficient. So, this is something to think about before installing.
For standard installations planning permission is not required. If the property is a listed building, world heritage site or does not meet the standard installation guidelines, permission should be sought. Don’t worry though, our team are on hand to help you find out if planning permission is required.
A few of the benefits from investing in solar panels are:
Increase your property value – As we become greener and wanting to be more self-sufficient, solar panels could make your property more desirable and in turn, increase your property value.
Reduce your carbon footprint and save money on your electricity bills – Because you will be using the sun to produce your own electricity supply, you will rely less on the grid. Therefore, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
Low maintenance – Solar panels require very little maintenance and could last you for up to 25 years. Our team can explain the maintenance you need to carry out to receive the maximum supply from them.
Option to store power for later – Battery storage is a brilliant way to make the most out of your solar power. It enables you to store any leftover solar energy produced in the day and use it when your electricity tariff is higher. Instead of selling it back to the grid. Due to this, teaming up solar and battery storage has become a very popular way to becoming more self-sufficient. However, if you prefer not to purchase battery storage, you can still make solar panels work for you. By using your appliances in the day when you are generating power from your solar panels.
