The advantages of solar photovoltaic (solar PV) systems range from generating your own electricity to achieving a return on investment via the Feed-in-Tariff which could be far greater than simply leaving your money in the bank or investing in high risk investment vehicles.

Here are just some examples of solar photovoltaic advantages.

Using Solar PV to reduce electricity bills

One of the advantages of solar photovoltaic (solar PV) is that as sunlight is free, you are able to reduce your bills via the electricity the solar panels generate. With energy rates rising at an alarming rate (the average rate of increase has been 7% per annum) and increasing fears over our security of supply, by investing in solar panels you can future-proof your supply.

Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) grants

Another of the advantages of solar photovoltaic (solar PV) is the availability of Government incentives. Owners of solar panels are rewarded for every unit of electricity they generate via the Feed-in-Tariff.

Tax Free payments

Payments made via the Feed-in-Tariff, which also pays an additional amount for every unit which is exported to the National Grid, are tax-free and index-linked so they should rise every year they are paid.

Guaranteed payments

In addition to being tax-free and index linked, payments made via the Feed-in-Tariff are also guaranteed for 20 years, just one more example of Solar photovoltaic advantages.

Advantages of a quality Solar Photovoltaic product and company

We believe that everyone investing in solar panels should benefit from a high quality photovoltaic module, especially in a market full of new entrants with no historical proof of performance. We therefore source only premier modules with proven performance and reliability.

Installation by experts

We provide full installation as part of our solar PV proposition via an installation partner who has been installing solar thermal and solar PV systems for over 7 years. This experience is reflected in our ability to offer full MCS accreditation for the installation of our solar PV systems which is important for securing eligibility for permitted development rights and the Feed-in-Tariff.

Advantages of Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) for the environment

The electricity produced by solar panels is completely clean which means no harmful elements are released into the environment. The fact that solar panels do not produce pollutants such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and they do not deplete any natural resources provides two more examples of the solar advantages available to you.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Another of the advantages of solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) is that by installing solar panels you will reduce your carbon footprint. In fact, you could save over 30 tonnes of CO2 over the system’s lifetime thereby doing your bit for the environment.
