Solar Panels - Solar System
If you use solar panels in the UK, you may be able to earn money by selling any excess electricity you don’t use to your energy provider.
Until 31 March 2019, the government operated a feed-in tariff (FIT) programme, in which households that generated electricity with solar panels would get paid for every kilowatt they produced. However, this tariff no longer exists.
It’s been replaced by the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The main difference is that the Smart Export Guarantee won’t pay you for the electricity you produce, but only the surplus – the electricity that you don’t use yourself, and which is sent into the National Grid.
This means that payments from SEG are likely to be lower than they were through the old system. However, energy companies can now offer different prices, so you may be able to find a good deal.
To take advantage of SEG, you’ll need to have a smart energy meter so your provider knows how much electricity you’re exporting. If you don’t have one, many providers will install them for free.
-All solar PV systems that we install come with a 10 Year insurance-backed guarantee
-We are members of the RECC Assurance Scheme
-We always provide clear and understandable information on systems so you can make an informed decision
-All solar panels we provide are MCS-approved, meaning they qualify for the government Feed-in-Tariff
In Roof Solar Panels
Being one of few Roofers with the accreditations to install Solar Panels we can install an in roof solar system for our customers.
Integrated solar panels are also referred to as in-roof solar panels. They are essentially the same as traditional solar panels which are installed on top of roof tiles or slates, but these panels are integrated into the roof, i.e. they replace a section of your roof with no tiles underneath. Integrated solar panels are designed to be weatherproofed and to be as strong as normal roof tiles but also include the photovoltaic cells to generate electricity for your home.
An energy-storage system, also called a home or solar battery, lets you capture electricity so you can use it at another time. For example, you can store the electricity your solar panels generate during the day and use it at night. Big tech brands including Samsung and Tesla sell home-energy storage systems. Energy companies including EDF Energy, Eon and Ovo are also currently selling solar panel batteries and storage packages.
Solar panel Grants
There are no grants for solar panels in the traditional sense of the word from the Government that will pay in full or in part for your solar panel installation. What they offer instead is a scheme called the Feed-In Tariff or the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) as it is called now which pays you money for the excess electricity that you produce
How much to Solar panels cost?
The price of a typical solar panel system, including installation, is about £4,000 - £6,500. In the scheme's early days, a system this size would have cost £10,000-£12,000.Since solar panel payments ended, the only way to recoup the outlay is electricity savings on your bill or by selling unused electicity that you have generated
