Benefits of UK solar panels

Benefits of UK Solar Panels – According to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy well over half a million British homes have panels installed. Ever wondered why people choose to install solar panels in the UK? Read on and find out about the benefits of UK solar panels

Benefits of UK Solar Panels

Reduced Electricity Bills

According to an Ofgem electricity and gas market report, energy prices have increased by as much as 32% over the past 5 years and this is predicted to continue. Over the next 20 years you could pay on average 21p per kilowatt of energy you buy.

One of the key benefits of UK solar panels is that you can protect yourself from rising electricity bills by installing solar panels. This will reduce your electricity bills significantly. So whilst electricity costs will continue to rise each year, solar panels can help to reduce the impact as the electricity generated from the solar panels is free.

Earn Money Back

Another of the benefits of UK solar panels is Feed-in Tariffs. Through Feed-in Tariffs (FiT) you can get paybacks for the electricity you produce. The Feed-In Tariff is an initiative by the UK Government aimed at helping you to become more self-sufficient and sustainable in your use of energy, whilst earning some extra income. The added value of the FiT is that payments are tax-free, index-linked, and have a 20-year guarantee.

Sell Unused Electricity Back To The Grid

If your system produces more electricity than you use you can sell the surplus back to the grid. This means that apart from cutting down electricity bills, your investment in solar panels gives you a guaranteed government-backed income for the next 20 years.

Cuts your Carbon Footprint

Switching to solar electricity reduces your carbon footprint, as it is a green, renewable source of energy. Estimates also show that solar panels for homes could save around one tonne of CO2 per year,.

All-Year Round Efficiency

Solar panels work all year round, not just in the summer. Although they reach their full potential during the sunny months, they also produce a considerable amount of electricity during the winter, as well as on cloudy days.

No Maintenance Required

Once the solar panels are installed, you need to keep them clean and ensure no trees begin to overshadow them. Other than that they should require very little maintenance.
