In line with the governments decision to reduce the Feed In Tariff from the 12/12/2011 we have substantially reduced our pricing NOW in line with reduced manufacturing pricing.
With reduced costs, installing PV is still a very worthwhile tax free, index linked investment, and you will still get free electricity during daylight hours.
About Photovoltaic (PV)
Did you know the photovoltaic technology used in solar panels is used in space to generate free electricity. Photovoltaic cells work (it’s called the Photovoltaic effect and was discovered way back in 1887 by Heinrich Hertz) by converting daylight into electricity but this technology should not be confused with existing solar water heating systems, that are less efficient and requires direct sunshine, water pipes and storage tanks. Typically, domestic photovoltaic or PV Systems come in a range of sizes from 1 – 4KW. from the Sun? A domestic solar photovoltaic micro-generation system works in the same way, and generates free electricity by collecting daylight on silicon solar cells which are located on your roof, or any other convenient non shaded position.
Once the PV system is installed, your home begins to earn money via the Feed in Tariff. Therefore it’s logical to assume the value of your home will increase in value faster than those that do not have a PV system installed. However in the current housing market we are not seeing this logical benefit filter through.
How Much Money Will You Save?
How much your solar panels save you depends on how much electricity your system generates, and this depends on where you live in the UK.
How Much Do Solar Panels Cost?
Solar panels prices vary depending on the size of array you purchase and regional price variances apply – contact us for an individual quote. The costs for our solar panel systems are competitively priced.
Buy Solar Panels
If you have the available funds you can buy a solar panel system outright, and benefit from the feed in tariff and electricity savings. Solar panels costs can vary depending on installation requirements. Our consultants can advise you on the best photovoltaic system which will return you the best value for your money.
Finance Solar Panels
PV Solar UK Ltd can offer you, depending on meeting certain criteria, a funding scheme in partnership with an international well known U.K. Bank. This will enable you to fund your investment now rather than later. The scheme is flexible and you only pay interest on the outstanding balance. You can also pay it of quicker than over the original term it was written.
REAL Code of Conduct
PVSOLARUK are MCS registered and members of the REAL assurance scheme. As such we are fully conversant and abide by the REAL code of conduct. For further information please see the link below.
The benefits of solar panels
- You generate your own electricity. It’s a clean free power source generating electricity all year long.
- Only daylight is required, so will work all year long, even in the UK, and yes, even in Scotland
- Could reduce your electricity bill depending on the size of system you purchase and the amount of electricity you use.
- May increase the value of your property
- No maintenance required. However you will need to factor in the possibility of replacing components especially the inverter during the lifetime of your feed in tariff (25 years)
- Silent operation
- Reduce the impact of global warming with a relatively cheap and green solar alternative.
- Installation of solar panels is clean, very little space extra required in your house.
- No planning permission is required to install solar photovoltaic systems. (in most cases)
If every possible roof in the UK (in Scotland, England and Wales) was fitted with solar photovoltaic (PV), we could exceed the nation’s current electricity demand! Solar photovoltaic offers huge potential to deliver renewable energy without generating carbon dioxide or other pollutants, and is in fact, one of the fastest growing green energy alternatives.
Information on Solar Photovoltaic
“Photovoltaic” is a marriage of two words: “photo”, from Greek roots, meaning light, and “voltaic”, from “volt”, which is the unit used to measure electric potential at a given point. Photovoltaic systems use cells to convert daylight into electricity. The cell consists of one or two layers of a semi-conducting material. When day light shines onto the cell it creates an electric field across the layers, causing D.C electricity to flow.
The greater the intensity of daylight, the greater the flow of electricity. The most common semiconductor material used in photovoltaic cells is silicon, an element most commonly found in sand. There is no limitation to its availability as a raw material; silicon is the second most abundant material in the Earth’s mass. A photovoltaic system does not need bright sunlight in order to operate. It can also generate electricity on cloudy days.
Due to the reflection of sunlight, slightly cloudy days can even result in higher energy yields than days with a completely cloudless sky. The system is easy to install with minimum disturbance and has a 25 year performace guarantee on the panels and the best part – there is a government backed feed in tariff available to help you re – coup the cost and return a profit . We are also able to provide a very attractive funding package.
