Solar panel electricity systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells.

Energy storage systems, also known as batteries, allow you to the electricity when it is available, typically from a renewables system, and save it until a time when it is useful to you.

We are able to install Solar PV systems with battery storage on an able to pay or finance basis.

Solar Photovoltaics (PV)

Solar PV cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run all the household appliances and lighting.

Benefits of solar electricity

Cut your electricity bills. Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced. You can even sell electricity back to the grid. You will also receive another payment for the electricity you export through the ‘Feed-in Tariff’ scheme.

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 around 1.5 to 2 tonnes of carbon per year.

Solar PV

In focus…

  • Generate free electricity
  • Provide clean – green energy
  • Operates even in cloudy weather
  • Get paid through the ‘Feed in Tariff’ scheme

Battery Storage

Battery storage helps you make the most of renewable electricity from a solar PV system. For example, your solar PV system will generate electricity during the day when you’re not at home, and this can be stored in your battery storage for you to use in when you return home.

Benefits of battery storage

If your home is connected to the grid, an electricity battery will help you make the most of your renewable electricity, meaning your electricity bills will be cheaper and your carbon emissions will be lower. In an off-grid home, battery storage can reduce your reliance on an alternative fossil fuel electricity generator.

Feed-in Tariff payments and energy storage

Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) payments are calculated on the basis that 50% of the electricity you generate is exported back to the grid. Even if you store spare electricity you generate, export payments will still be calculated on this 50% basis. This may change as the UK Government are looking to base FITs export payments on actual meter readings after the smart meter roll-out.
