A solar PV system for your home can offer a return of up to 15% through energy bill savings and payments from the Government’s feed-in tariff; a return that will outperform any savings account
Our approach to solar – including design, project management and installation – allows you to benefit from industry leading design and delivery. We will ensure your system outperforms your expectations and we will only use branded high quality panels and the most efficient reliable inverters
Just like all installations, the amount of electricity your system will generate is dependent on many factors including your location, roof pitch, roof orientation and also how much and when you use your electricity at home. As a guide, a typical 4 kWp system can save you up to 60% on your energy bills. The feed-in tariff will also pay you for every unit of electricity you generate regardless if you use the electricity or not. Furthermore, the tariff also gives you an export payment for what you export back to the grid. The tariff assumes you will use half of the energy you generate, so the export payment you receive is based on half of the generation total. Enquire today to find out what returns your roof can make. When you have a solar PV system installed at home, it will automatically feed the power you’ve generated to your appliances, so a lot of the power you use during the day will be free. During the night times, or if you use more energy than you produce, your power supply will switch back to the grid. You won’t notice any disruption or change – just smaller bills. To make the most of all that free electricity, it’s best to use appliances like dishwashers and washing machines during the day. We can also fit an immersion heater controller which will send any excess electricity you’re not using to heat your water tank, or alternatively we can fit battery storage systems which will enable to save the electricity and use it when the sun goes down.
There are many factors that affect the price of a residential system, so please contact us today for a competitive quote for YOUR home and find out how much you could save every year with solar PV. We guarantee our workmanship for 2 years, with most of our products carrying up to a 10 or 12 year manufacturer warranty in some cases upgradable to 25 years for a small fee.
If you want a 4 kWp system but your roof space cannot support 16 panels (due to size or shading issues), we can install super high efficiency panels from LG , allowing you to achieve the same output with fewer panels (12 panels). With market leading technology, the premium BenQ solar panel delivers up to 36% more power than other panels on the market at 360W per panel (versus a standard 250W)
We install Solaredge optimised systems and smart panels, these systems offer several advantages over standard solar systems meaning they can produce up to 20% more power for a minimal increase in cost giving you a faster return on your investment, they are also fully compatible with the new range of Tesla battery storage systems due to hit the UK market in mid-2016.
If you have the roof space to accommodate a larger system why limit yourself to 4 kW? Most installers will not look any further than a 4kW systems because of the complexities involved. For us this is not a problem, we regularly install system over 4 kW in size on domestic single phase supplies, even 10 kW + if you have the space. The increase in size from a 4 kW system to say a 5 kW will increase your power output by 25% but because a lot of the cost of the system is in the inverter, scaffolding and installation, the increase in cost to 5 kW is around 15% giving a much faster return on your investment, the bigger the system the faster the return. The panels don’t all have to be on the same roof plain, using our fully optimised system we can install the panels on multiple roofs facing in different directions to maximise the sun's energy through the day.
If you’re interested in extending a system you already have please get in touch, we may be able to add panels, inverters and meters to existing systems to maximise your energy savings, you don’t have to be restricted to 4kWp system just because your installer told you that’s all you could have!
