HOW IT WORKS
A Solar Photo-voltaic System, also known as Solar (PV), captures the sun’s energy using photo-voltaic cells. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work; they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
A 4kWp system can generate around 3,800 kilowatt hours of electricity a year in the south of England – roughly equivalent to a typical household’s annual electricity needs. It will also save nearly two tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
THE FEED-IN TARIFF SCHEME
If you choose one of our Solar PV Systems, you will be entitled to claim the UK Government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme (FITs), where you get money from your energy supplier. The payments are tax free for 20 years. You are paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it yourself, and for any surplus electricity you export to the grid. You’ll also save money on your electricity bill, because you’ll be using your own electricity.
If you are eligible to receive FITs you will benefit in three ways:
• Generation tariff: your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate.
• Export tariff: you will get a further payment from your energy supplier for each unit you export back to the electricity grid, so you can sell any electricity you generate but don’t use yourself.
• Energy bill savings: you will be making savings on your electricity bills because you’ll be generating your own electricity.
