Solar PVSolar PV (PhotoVoltaic) is a renewable energy source which uses cells that convert sunlight into energy that can be used in your home.
Benefits of Solar PV
Solar PV creates energy from sunlight, this means any energy used from solar pv is 100% renewable.
Using energy generated by Solar PV will see you using less electricity from the grid, reducing your energy bills.
All of our solar systems are fitted with warranty as standard with options to extend available.
Due to solar panels having no moving parts there is very little maintenance required.
Solar PV panels often do not require any planning permission. However, exceptions can apply and we would recommended to check with your local planning office for guidance on this. A Solar PV system must be registered with the Distribution Network Operator (DNO). This is usually taken care of by the installer.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) has been in place since 1st January 2020 replacing the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme which ended in March 2019. It ensures that small-scale generators are paid for any renewable electricity they export to the grid.
If you have energy storage fitted in your Solar PV installation, additional rules may apply to what you can and cannot claim back through SEG.
