What are solar panels and how can they help me? Let’s take a look!

On this page you’ll find loads of detailed information about solar panels and how they can help you power your home and the differences between them and traditional measures.

What are solar panels?

Why should I get them?

Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic panels, are devices that harness sunlight to generate electricity for your home. They consist of numerous solar cells that convert sunlight into usable electrical power. These panels are typically installed on your roof or property, where they capture sunlight and turn it into clean, renewable energy.

Here are the four most beneficial advantages of solar panels for homeowners in the UK:

Reduced Energy Bills: Solar panels can significantly lower your electricity bills, saving you money over the long term.

Environmental Benefits: Solar panels produce clean, renewable energy, reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a greener environment.

Earn Money: You can earn money by selling excess electricity back to the grid through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG).

Increased Property Value: Solar panels can increase the resale value of your home, making it more appealing to potential buyers and a smart long-term investment.

How much can I save?

More efficiency, less energy spend

Domestic solar power has been growing massively in the UK in recent years, with popularity surging amidst costs of energy rising. Government subsidies exist both for solar panel installation and additionally the buying back of excess electricity that goes unused by your property. Solar panels and solar power can generate significant cost savings for UK residents, even up here in Scotland where the sun likes to hide away!

It is estimated that solar panels can save between £100 and £270 per year on energy bills for the average home in the UK, with it varying depending on where you live and the type of system installed. The typical issue with Solar energy is the high cost to get the panels and electrical systems installed, but, once that’s been done the energy is essentially free. We have various funding sources that are available that could mean your family don’t need to pay a penny towards solar installations!
