SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAICS (PV) - SAVE MONEY BY GENERATING YOUR OWN ENERGY

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells don't need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

Will I have enough space for solar PV panels?

As a general guide, unshaded south-facing roof areas of 10-20 square metres with a tilt of between 30-40 degrees, should deliver between 20% and 45% of the typical household’s electricity needs.  Anything that shades the area such as nearby buildings or trees could impact negatively on the performance of your system. 

Although a south-facing roof is ideal and will produce the ultimate amount of power, panels can also be fitted on east- and west-facing roofs. 

What are the benefits of solar electricity?

  • Supplied by nature - solar energy is free and abundant and can be made wherever there is sunlight. Once you've paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced.

  • With the costs of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels reducing, they are becoming economically viable and environmentally sustainable. 

  • Sell electricity back to the grid through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The SEG is an obligation set by the government for licensed electricity suppliers to offer a tariff and make payment to small-scale low-carbon generators for electricity exported to the National Grid, providing certain criteria are met.

  • PV panels provide clean green energy - cutting your carbon footprint. Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save around 1.5 to 2 tonnes of carbon per year.

  • PV panels are silent so ideal for urban or built-up areas. 

  • Protect yourself against future energy price rises. 

Other products you might consider

Integrating a solar PV system with an onsite solar battery storage solution is a smart way to leverage additional financial and energy security benefits for your home or business. By storing and using all the self-generated electricity instead of exporting surplus energy back to the grid, you can realise even greater savings, in addition to further reducing your reliance on the National Grid.
