Power your Home with Solar
Installing solar panels is one of our companies main disciplines. It’s something we have been doing for many years now. As a company, our strongest selling points are, firstly, that we can offer our clients a neat package that can include; Solar PV & Solar battery storage. Secondly, we are experienced solar panel installers that have been in the business for many years.
We believe fitting solar panels with battery storage is contributing towards a smart energy grid. A smart energy grid is
A solar panel installation for your home could offer an annual return of up to 10%. This is because of both electricity savings and export tariff payments.
Coupling solar panels with a battery storage system captures daytime solar generation. This energy can then be used day and night. Therefore, this ensures maximum solar power usage (self-consumption) in a post tariff age.
In other words, installing solar without battery storage will only be worth it if you are able to use the energy you generate. Simply because if you don’t use the energy you generate it will flow back to the grid. You will, therefore miss out on the benefit yourself.
Fitting solar panels to an existing property is a relatively simple process. For instance, either by installing in-roof solar or on-roof, both is possible.
Solar panels for homes are installed and fastened using specialist fixings.
When building new homes Solar panels should be an essential part of the build process. Building homes with Integrated Solar Panels (BIPV) or In-Roof solar has become a cost-effective solution. Visit our Solar Panels for New Build page to learn more. Above all, solar PV as a building material can help towards the buildings SAP rating making the home more energy-efficient.
There are several methods for installing solar panels to homes. The most common method being the on-roof solution. This is where the panels are fixed to your roof and sit on top of the roof tiles or roof covering. Just like this photo of one of our installations (above).
There are other methods for installing solar panels to your home. Such as in-roof, ground-mounted, flat roof-mounted, solar tiles and even wall mounted.
It’s worth checking our dedicated page to solar panel fixing options.
Once the panels have been fitted, cables are installed to an inverter which converts the current from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current). AC is what is typically used in homes.
The inverter is then connected to your fuse box and during daylight hours when the solar is generating, starts providing your home with free electricity. The electricity that is generated is also metered before it is used. That way the electricity can be officially counted and the consumer can check what they have generated.
