Frequently asked questions

  • 1. What is solar electricity?
    Solar electricity is electricity that’s generated through the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. Solar PV panels are used to capture the sun’s free and clean renewable energy, turning it into electricity.
  • 2. How does a solar PV system work?
    Solar PV systems feature an array of cells which contain a solar PV material that can convert radiation from the sun into direct current (DC) electricity. The electricity that is generated can be used to provide power for lighting and electrical equipment around the home
  • 3. How many solar panels will my home need?
    The more solar panels you have installed, the more energy they’ll be able to generate for your home. The number of solar panels you’ll need will depend on your energy usage, the number of people in your home and the size of your property. Smaller homes might need a 1kW system, with roof space for 8+ square metres of solar panels, while higher demand can be met with a 4kW system, but that would need 25+ square metres of space on your roof.
  • 4. How does solar benefit the environment?
    Well, for starters it’s a renewable source of energy, so unlike coal it won’t run out. Plus solar energy is environmentally friendly because it doesn’t generate green house gases. Renewable energy technologies will help you reduce your carbon footprint, meaning you’ll personally be doing your bit for the environment.
  • 5. What are the benefits of solar?
    Well, there’s the reductions you are going to make on your fuel bills for starters, because generating your own electricity will help reduced those costs considerably. Reduced electricity bills: a 2.8 kWp system should be able to generate around 35% of an average household's annual electricity needs. Lower carbon emissions: solar panels don’t produce any carbon emissions, which will help to greatly reduce the impact your home has on the environment. No running costs: once installed, you won’t have to worry about any operating costs as they create free renewable energy for your home. Low maintenance: other than making sure the panels are getting enough light (make sure they’re not being obstructed) there’s not a lot else to worry about. Charge an electric car for free: reduce your fuelling costs if you have an electric vehicle.
  • 6. Do solar panels still work on cloudy days?
    Absolutely! It’s actually radiation from the sun, rather than temperature, heat or direct sunlight, that enables solar PV panels to generate electricity. Solar panels in hot sunny countries are bound to gather more energy, but don’t be fooled into thinking that they won’t work well in the UK. They don’t need constant direct sunlight to work and can still generate electricity when the weather is cloudy. Don’t forget either that Germany is currently the world leader in solar energy generation – not exactly a country well known for its abundance of sun!
  • 7. What’s the difference between solar PV and solar thermal?
    Solar PV panels are used to generate electricity, whereas solar thermal – also known as a solar hot water system – is used to provide domestic hot water around the home.
  • 8. Do solar panels need much maintenance?
    Once your solar panels have been installed, the we will leave you with details of the maintenance checks that you’ll need to do from time to time but, on the whole, solar panel maintenance is very minimal
  • 9. What are bifacial solar panels?
    This solar technology not only generate energy from the side facing the light but the back too, which makes them able to deliver your home with even more energy!
  • 10. What is the Feed-in Tariff?
    The Feed-in Tariff came to an end in March 2019 but it was a scheme the Government introduced to reward those generating their own electricity with solar panels with 20-25 years worth of payments. Originally set at a rate of 43.3p per kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity generated, this was gradually reduced to 3.47p and in March 2019 the scheme closed to new applications.
  • 11. Is it worth investing in solar?
    There’s no doubt about it; solar PV panels are the most popular type of renewable energy with homeowners. Over 500,000 UK homes already have solar PV panels and the numbers are continuing to grow. Solar panel costs have dropped dramatically, so there’s really never been a better time to invest. The benefits too are impossible to ignore: lower energy bills, a reduction in carbon emissions and potentially increase the value of your home.
