Solar Installations - Going Green and Saving Money
Although the Government’s solar Feed-in Tariff is reducing, householders with solar electricity systems are still paid for the electricity they generate, whether they use it themselves or feed it on to the national grid. This is guaranteed for the next 20 years. They also receive an additional payment for the power they pass on.
If you install solar photovoltaic (solar pv) panels you will be doing your bit for the environment. You’ll also benefit from savings on your electricity bills.

In some cases, planning permission is required for solar installations. This is usually the case where the property is in a conservation area or is a listed building, or you have a flat roof. We’ll let you know if you need to contact your local planning authority and will help you with the paperwork.
A solar system is long lasting and needs little maintenance. You are just recommended to get your pv panels serviced about every five years so that dirt doesn’t interfere with their operation. The wires and connections should be checked whenever you have your electrical system looked at.
This depends on how much electricity you generate and use. A typical solar pv system can earn around £1000 a year, so you are only looking at a few years before you are significantly better off, and you will always have lower bills from your electricity supplier.
Most roofs are suitable, but a few are not. A south facing roof is obviously best, but as long as they are not overshadowed by trees, landscape or high buildings, others are often also suitable.
