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.
|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.|
If you are considering installing solar panels at your home it is important to know the difference between the two types of solar panel energy technology - Solar 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 Thermal Energy
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.
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 recent 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.
