Solar Panel Quotes

Get 3 free no-obligation solar panel quotes from local solar panel installers.

Solar Panels (solar photovoltaics or Solar PV), use the sun's energy to generate green electricity.
Solar panels can be used to heat your water and power your home appliances.
Installing a solar panel electricity system can generates a profit as any unused solar energy is sold back to the grid via the Government's Solar Panel Feed In Tariff Scheme.

Solar Panels

Installing a solar panel system allows you to generate cheap green electricity for your home appliances or convert free heat from sunlight to heat your hot water.

You will have to pay for the initial installation of the solar panels but you will generate a worthwhile profit over a 25 year period and benefit from reduced electricity costs and the Government's Solar Feed-in-Tariff incentive scheme.

Solar Panel Feed-in-Tariff

The Government's Solar Panel Feed-In-Tariff scheme allows you to sell surplus energy that you generate with your solar powered electricity system back to the national power grid for a profit.

Although there has been a  reduction in the solar energy Feed In Tariff there is still a worthwhile profit to be made by having a solar powered electricity system installed. More on the Government Solar Panel Feed In Tariff.

Solar Panel Systems

If you are considering installing solar panels at your home it is important to know the difference between the two types of solar panel systems - Solar Panel Photovoltaics (PV) and Solar Thermal (STE).

PV Solar Panel Electricity Systems
PV solar panel systems generate cheap, green electricity by converting sunlight into direct current electricity which can be used to power your home appliances and lighting cheaply.

Solar Panel Electricity

A solar panel electricity system powers your home appliances by converting sunlight into electricity. The diagram below shows how the sun's rays are captured by Solar Photovoltaic Panels then converted into electricity by an inverter.
The energy is used to power your appliances with any surplus solar electricity being sold back into the national grid.

Solar Powered Water Heating Systems
Solar Panel Thermal Energy technology captures heat from the Sun's rays and heats the hot water in your home all year round for free. Although you will have to pay the initial outlay for installation you can make huge savings over time.

Solar Panel Water Heating

Solar Panel Thermal Water Heating

Solar water heaters (Solar Thermal) use solar panels to collect heat from sunlight. The free heat collected by the solar panels is used to heat the water in your home, which is stored in a hot water cylinder in the same way as a conventional hot water boiler heating system.

Solar Panel Suitability

Before you get a quote from a Solar Panel installer find out if your property and roof are suitable. The main considerations before contacting a Solar Panel installer for a quote are as follows:

Does your property face the sun?
To capture the Sun's PV rays Solar Panels should be installed on a roof which faces South. Panels may be fitted to a roof which faces either West or East although the daily PV capture will be less.

Roof Pitch
The angle of your roof has an effect on the amount of Solar energy that Solar panels generate. In the UK the optimum roof pitch for Solar Panel installation is 45 Degrees but any roof pitch between 30 Degrees and 50 Degrees is suitable.
