How does it work?
In essence, solar panels are attached to the roof of your property, where they harness daylight and convert it into electricity that can be used within your home.
What are the benefits?
Using electricity that is self-generated can have an immediate impact on your household energy bills. This form of energy also has long term benefits in that it provides protection against potential fuel price increases in the future.
In addition, for every unit of energy your household produces, you can earn money from the government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme, which pays you for generating electricity whether you use it yourself or send surplus power back to the National Grid. Solar PV can save up to £200 on your annual energy bills, and you will also be paid every quarter for the energy you use and the energy you feed back to the grid. Ultimately, solar helps to support the environment as it produces lower carbon emissions.
