The ever increasing popularity for Solar Panel installations have made the prices plummet by almost 60% in the last ten years. This means the demand on new and improved systems is the highest it’s ever been.
Controlling your entire installation over a mobile phone app and seeing how your energy is being used and distributed is just one of the many features of the new technology ready to be installed.
With the ever increasing energy prices, we feel that Solar PV Installations are the future to reduce high monthly energy payments and is a worthwhile investment.
Installation of Solar Panels
Work was carried out efficiently in the time as quoted. Information given before and after installation was very helpful and professional allowing us to make informed decisions. Installers were courteous and tidy and we felt confident in their workmanship. The system is up and running with no problems incurred. We would not hesitate to recommend the company.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR SOLAR PV
What is Solar PV?
Solar PV stands for Solar Photovoltaic, which use semiconductor technology built within the solar panel to convert energy from sunlight into electricity that you could use in your household.
Solar PV systems which include Solar Panels, Solar Inverters and battery storage are one of the leading renewable energy resources.
Some great advantages of solar PV are:
Lower Carbon Footprint
Considerable savings on energy bills
The potential to earn money from surplus electricity generated and exported back into the grid.
Solar Panels convert the absorbed sunlight using photovoltaic cells, these cells then generate DC energy (Direct Current) which then uses a solar Inverter to turn that energy into AC energy (Alternating Current). The AC energy is then distributed by the inverter around the house ready to be used.
What is Battery Storage?
When the panels are absorbing sunlight during the day but the energy isn’t being used at the household the DC current will be stored into the battery storage technology. Once the energy is ready to be used around the house, the inverter will then convert the energy into AC current and will distribute it to the appliances being used

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do solar panels work?
Solar panels convert absorbed sunlight into DC (direct current) electricity.
This DC electricity is converted into AC (alternating current) electricity, which is the power we use in our homes.
This process is completed by a solar inverter.
Will I still receive an electric bill if I have solar panels?
Yes, you will receive an electricity bill for any power that you do not generate from your solar. This will be imported from the National Grid, which is how you are currently receiving your electricity.
How long does it take to install?
2-3 days, depending on the size of your system.
How much does it cost?
The average system can cost from £5,000 to £10,000.
