Benefits of Solar Power

There are many benefits to using solar power, some financial and some human. With energy prices increasing, Solar PV should be high on the agenda to consider investing in.

Some solar power benefits include:

  1. Cut your electricity bills
  2. Store excess energy
  3. Greater independence
  4. Reduce your carbon footprint
  5. Helps fight climate change
  6. Receive payments for additional energy you generate
  7. No VAT on the overall installation

Roof orientation can be an important factor for your solar panel installation. In the UK, a south facing roof will usually produce the best results, but you can get good outputs from east and west facing roofs too. A north facing roof receives the least sunlight and will therefore  the least efficient orientation.

A 35-40 degree pitched roof is normally the best to produce the most amount of energy, but most roofing surfaces can be accommodated. Shading factors, i.e. trees and other buildings, need to be taken into account at design stage but all good installers should discuss this with you.

There is normally a solar solution to fit most situations, we will discuss the best options during your consultation.

Although it’s not essential to have a battery system, it can be a worthwhile investment for the complete renewable energy solution.

How much you would benefit from a battery system, largely depends on your pattern of energy usage. For example, if you’re out most of the day and your electricity usage is at its lowest, your solar panels could be generating more energy than you actually need. The addition of a battery system stops this excess energy from going to waste, by saving and storing it so you can switch to battery power at night, when your solar panels no longer generate energy. This makes a battery system a worthwhile investment.

Having a battery could also help support your home if there is a power cut with the use of a power back-up system.

Most solar panel installations are granted as part of “Permitted Development” so standard solar panel installations should not require planning permission.

However, if you live in a listed building or home, world heritage site or conservation area, it is always advised to seek permission before entering a solar PV installation. This does not mean it can not be done but permissions should be sought.

Believe it or not, the UK can generate a considerable amount of solar energy to make your solar solution a good investment. We’re even on par with other European countries for Solar Power generation.

Although solar energy works best in the summer months, when daylight hours are at their longest, you can still generate power throughout the year in the UK. If it’s a cloudy day, your solar panels will still work, but the total power it can generate will be reduced.
