Get FREE Electricity Powered by the Sun!

You could be receiving free electricity fuelled by the Sun – using powerful solar energy! Solar PV systems turn sunlight into electricity which can be used to power your property. The sun is a constant source of clean energy which can be generated into your own renewable electricity.

How do Solar PV systems work?

Solar PV systems turn sunlight into electricity through the ‘solar cells’ they contain. Solar cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material. When light shines on the material, electrons are knocked which creates a flow of electricity.

The cells do not need direct sunlight to work – they work on cloudy days. However, more electricity is generated on sunny days. Electricity leaves the panel and passes through an inverter which turns it into electricity which can be used in your home.

Solar PV cells can be grouped into modules which then can be grouped into solar arrays. They can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems fit on top of your roof, but they can also be installed on the ground or to fit solar tiles.

How much electricity is produced?

The amount of electricity produced is determined by a range of variables including shading, sunlight, orientation etc. In general, you can expect it to annually generate between 700 and 900 KWh per KWp installed.

What are the benefits of solar electricity?

  • Reduce your electricity bills – Energy from the sun is free! Once you have paid for the installation, your electricity costs will be significantly reduced. Your installation costs will be paid back over the years of using your new solar PV system.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint – Solar electricity is a renewable energy which can save around 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year.
  • Low maintenance – Once installed, there is very little maintenance required. You may need to replace the inverter every 10 years. The solar PV systems usually last for decades.
