Top reasons for going solar

Solar Panels Sheffield

Solar panels are the most prevalent household renewable energy source in the UK, with rooftop panels being installed on many buildings across the country. Solar panels collect the sun’s energy and converts it to electricity for use in your home.

Why should you go down the solar route for your home?

Reduce your electricity bill…

Your electric bills will fall because solar energy is free and you will not need to pay for the generated energy that you would have been buying from the energy grid in the past. Even during cloudy days, you will still be generating electricity.

Sell electricity back to to the grid…

With the Smart Export Guarantee, you can sell any excess electricity that you generate but don’t use back to the grid. This is all managed via a third party so you don’t need to worry about this you can just benefit from the extra money received.

Reduce your carbon footprint…

It’s a completely renewable energy source that doesn’t release emissions, degrade the environment, or make noise once it’s been manufactured. By using solar energy, you are cutting your carbon footprint and playing your part in tackling climate change.

Solar Panel Installers

A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate over a tonne and a half of carbon dioxide per year which is the equivalent of planting around 50 trees annually. Going green is the only going to help the planet and help future generations.

Easy to install and maintain…

Solar panels can last for over 30 years and with no moving parts, there’s less that could break. This means that once installed, there is little maintenance that needs to be done.

Create your own energy…

With solar panels, you will have the ability to generate your own electricity. As a result, you can take advantage of being energy independent. You don’t have to be reliant on the traditional electrical grid. You have control over your energy source.

Return on investment…

Solar power is a good long term investment. You can see a return on investment of around 10% a year which means a much lower payback period compared to their lifespan. This means that once the solar panels have been paid back, you are getting free electricity and can also make money with the Smart Export Guarantee. This will also increase the price of your property for the future.

Renewable energy…

Solar power is a renewable energy source. It is available every day and can be harnessed in different parts of the world. Unlike other sources of energy, solar energy will not run out. As long as there is the sun, solar energy is accessible for us.
