Why install home solar panels?

  • You can generate tax free income
  • You can reduce your energy bills
  • You can reduce the effects of electricity price increases
  • You can reduce your carbon footprint and the effects of climate change
  • Quick installation
  • Low maintenance technology

Generate tax-free income

The Feed in Tariff (FIT) is a scheme which rewards energy created by renewable energy technologies including solar PV. For each unit (kWh) generated a payment is made: even if you use the electricity! These payments are tax free for householders and index (increasing in line with inflation) linked for 25 years (20 years after Aug 1st 2012). See our Feed in Tariff page for more information.

Reducing your electricity bills

A home solar photovoltaic installation can reduce your electricity bills – especially if you use your energy during the day and make some changes to how and when you use your energy.

The electricity generated by your home solar PV system can be used in your home and by using the electricity you generate instead of buying it from your energy company– you reduce your bills. The amount you save will depend on the size of installation, the orientation of your roof and how much electricity you use.

Protection from energy price rises

Energy bills have risen considerably recently and as resources such as coal oil and gas become scarcer we can expect this trend to continue. Installing a Solar PV system can reduce the effects of these increases. By using the energy generated in your home you are reducing your consumption of electricity thereby reducing the amount your bill increases year on year.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Carbon dioxide is a major greenhouse gas, 30% of the UK emissions of these are created by electrical generation. By generating electricity from renewable sources such as solar PV you are not only reducing your own homes emissions but you are contributing to reducing the amount of electricity that needs to be created using fossil fuels. Remember: any unused solar generated electricity from your solar PV system is automatically exported to the National Grid for others to use!
