How It Works
A solar PV system is an investment in your home that generates an income while being kind to the environment
For any kind of Solar PV installation; domestic, community, commercial or industrial, the benefits are both financial and environmental. Financially you are receiving an income for simply generating electricity, regardless of usage. You’ll experience lower utility bills and be protected against future rises in energy costs. Environmentally you can significantly lower your carbon footprint whilst reducing your reliance on ‘dirty’ fossil fuels.
The installation is straight forward as a retro fit to an existing building or as part of a refurbishment. A domestic solar PV system is usually installed in one to two days depending on the size or the solar array, and with very little disruption to your home or business. You will start generating electricity as soon as the system is installed and there is very little on going maintenance required.

Feed In Tariff
Under the Feed in Tariff, energy suppliers are required by law to pay a tariff to home owners and businesses generating their own electricity. To be eligible for the Feed in Tariff Solar PV panels must be installed by a MCS accredited company who supply MCS accredited products.
How the Feed-in Tariff works.
Generation tariff: A set rate paid by the energy supplier for each unit (kWh) of electricity generated. This is recorded on your generation meter that we install at the time of installation. This rate is reducing over time for new entrants but once your system is installed you lock in to your rate for 20 years plus inflationary increases linked to RPI.
Export tariff: You receive a further payment from your energy supplier for each unit exported to the electricity grid. i.e. when it is not used on site. This is not usually metered, but it is assumed that you will export 50% of what is generated by the solar PV system.
Energy bill savings: You make savings on your electricity bill because generating electricity to power your electrical appliances means you don’t have to buy as much electricity from the national grid. So it makes sense to use as much of the solar electricity as possible.
