Here at Applegarth Electrical we design, commission maintain and install solar PV (photo voltaic) panels. We are an MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) Accredited installer – a requirement for eligibility for feed-in tariffs. There are a number of advantages to be gained from the installation of solar PV panels.
Free daytime electricity
Solar panels are installed to expose them to the optimum amount of sunlight during the course of a day. This electricity is free, and you may even be able to make money out by exporting it out to the grid.
Your Income from Feed In and export Tariffs.
Generation Tariff: You earn a fixed income for every kilowatt hour of electricity you generate whether you use yourself in your property or export it to the grid. Exported electricity will provide income at a higher rate. See what you could make with the official calculator here. (Link to site with official government calculator)
If you don’t generate enough electricity for your needs, you can still buy electricity from your utility company at the normal rates, but it will be a much smaller amount than you currently buy.
Reduction in CO2 emissions
Looking at the bigger picture, installing a renewable source of energy such as Solar PV panels contributes to reducing the total amount of fossil fuels burnt for energy needs. This in turn reduces the amount of carbon emitted into the atmosphere, leading to climate change.
Putting a halt to climate change is an international effort, but you can play your part by utilising renewable energy.
The decision to install solar panels provides future proofing from the full effects of the increases in energy prices.
The cost of electricity and natural gas fluctuates over time. There has been a strong trend in recent years for energy price increases, with no signs of any reverse on the horizon.
Generating your own electricity with Solar PV panels protects you from these increases, allowing you peace of mind when it comes to your energy costs. Solar power is a reliable source of energy when you consider that fossil fuels are finite.
