Solar energy helps you save money on electricity bills and protects against price rises imposed by the big utility companies. Since the turn of the century, the average energy bill has doubled and since Jan 1987 it has in fact trebled. The sources for the figures used is ‘The Office For National Statistics.’
1. Save money
2. Future proof against energy rises
Households saw energy almost double in price per kilowatt hour (Kwh) between 2010-2020. The average cost of household electricity in 2020 was just 13p per Kwh as of Spring 2020, this was priced at 22p per Kwh. With solar, not only will you pay less for your energy, you could also earn money through grid trading.
3. Join the community
Solar is infectious. The number of solar panels installed in the UK keeps going up, there are now more than a million homes enjoying the benefits. And they’re not just going up on homes and offices – they’re on churches, train stations, tower blocks, farms and even bridges!
4. Fit and forget
A solar installation will give you years and years of trouble free service. Some of our products have lifetime warranties and require little or no maintenance.
5. Receive a bonus
As well as reducing your electricity bills, you can also help support the national grid by storing surplus energy and exporting it back to the grid when needed. This is all done through a third party who will manage your energy commodity by daily trading, earning and saving your money along the way.
6. Save the planet
Cut 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 over a tonne and a half of carbon dioxide per year – that’s more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
7. Help power Britain
Power cuts in coming winters are always a possibility, as Britain’s ageing energy system struggles to cope with rising demand. By adding your own rooftop energy production, you are helping to keep the lights on in your own home and across the country.
8. Batteries and economy 7 electricity
You can charge your batteries on an evening using low cost Economy 7 electricity and reduce your electricity costs maxing out your savings!
9. Use your daylight
It doesn’t matter whether you live on the sunny Côte de Sussex or in rainy Cardiff (officially the rainiest city in the UK last year). If your roof has direct access to daylight, you can make electricity – solar PV panels work even better in cooler temperatures.
10. It's a great investment
Solar panels make your home more energy efficient, reduce household bills and can also lead you to earning money on your energy usage.
