Saving energy and money with Solar PV

Solar electricity systems capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.

 

PV cells don't need direct sunlight to work - you can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day.

Very roughly, in the UK, 1kW of solar pv is likely to have a total annual yield of approx 850kW hrs per year. You can check the anticipated output for a solar array by visiting the following:

The cost of a solar panel system is directly proportional to the amount of power it is designed to generate. Grid connected solar power systems are the simplest, and in the UK they currently cost approximately £ 3,000 + VAT 5% per installed 1kW.

The first kW normally costs slightly more and as the system increases in size, economies of scale start to bring the price down. The price would break down roughly as follows: £ 1000 for the solar panels, £ 1000 for an inverter and £ 1000 for mounting hardware & installation.

 

With a grid connected system there are normally two main parameters - the budget and the available installation space. This makes the selection of a suitably sized pv system fairly simple. We would still recommend maximising the efficiency of the building to gain the most from the solar installation.
