Using photovoltaic (PV) cell technology, solar power works by turning rays from the sun into electricity, which can then be used in the home. By taking advantage of renewable technology such as solar panels, not only can you benefit from lower household bills, but you could also receive extra income as a result of exporting excess solar energy back to the grid.
With a higher than average total amount of sunshine per year, homeowners in the coastal county of Hampshire can reap the full benefits of solar installations.
What are the costs involved?
Typically, the cost of a solar PV installation is repaid via savings on electricity bills in around six to eight years. For some people, finance is available through the government’s Green Deal scheme.
What is Green Deal?
Green Deal is a loan scheme developed by the UK government to help homeowners pay for energy efficiency improvements. Once the installation is complete, the loan is then repaid through the money saved on electricity bills.
In order to access Green Deal funds, an accredited Green Deal assessor will need to carry out a survey of your property. You will then be issued a report detailing which energy saving measures are likely to save you the most money, along with the associated costs.
