Solar Generation

What is solar energy and why should you use it?

Solar energy is free, green and endless. Solar panels have been around for over 50 years so it’s a proven technology. New solar energy technologies mean that solar panels do not need direct sunlight to work – they can generate electricity even on a cloudy day.

Solar panels are virtually maintenance free and come with a 25 years performance guarantee. A Solar system does not only provide you free electricity for life, but you will be paid for all the electricity you generate. These payments called Feed In Tariff (FiT) and Export Tariff are Index linked, Tax Free and Guaranteed for 20 years.

Due to these benefits of solar energy, the alternative method to provide energy,  has become so popular that between 2009 and 2016 over a million homeowners have installed Solar electric systems. (source DECC).

During the three months from April to June 2016 some £317,276,659 (three hundred and seventeen million) was claimed in FIT payments. The FiT is collected from all energy consumers in the form of a “levy” which is added to everyone’s electricity bills. So while you are thinking about installing a solar system for your property or land, you are paying towards the millions being paid out to those homeowners who have already installed theirs.

A solar photovoltaic system can provide annual returns of up to 12%. These returns are Index Linked, Tax Free (for homeowners) and Guaranteed for 20 years.

Benefits of a Solar electric system

Since the Government’s Feed in Tariff (FiT) scheme was introduced in 2010, around 12 GW of solar has been installed on 925,723 homes by the end of August 2017 (Source: OFGEM).

Earn Feed In Tariff

You will be paid Export Tariff for 50% of the electricity you generate, irrespective of how much you use.

Slash Your Electricity Bills

You can use all the solar electricity for free and still earn the Feed In and Export tariffs
