Does solar really work in the UK?

Yes. The PV cells in the panels only require daylight to work and will even generate energy on cloudy days. The sun does shine enough in West Sussex to make a PV solar system work efficiently!

What is the cost of a solar PV system?

We do not provide a fixed price for a solar PV system because every installation is different. However as a rough guide, a 4KWp grid-connected PV system using high quality Hyundai or LG panels will cost in the from £ 6250.00 and a 2KWp would be from£ 4250.00. These systems will also benefit from the Solar Edge panel optimizers and inverter energy harvesting system.

Most homeowners will hire roofing contractors residential to install a 2-4 kWp system but the cost of the system can vary according to the roof type and existing fuseboard configuration.

Can I get money back from generating my own electricity?

The governemet Feed-In Tariff ended on 31st March 2019. There are currently no other schemes.

What maintenance and cleaning does a PV system need?

Solar photovoltaic systems have no moving parts and operate silently. They require virtually no technical maintenance and components will have a very long life. Black anodised aluminium frames with an additional coating ensures extremely high corrosion resistance and a long service life. One potential problem could be the bird life in the area spoiling the panels. If this is an issue we will discuss appropriate options with you, and an annual clean of the panels could prove beneficial in a lot of cases. We also provide a bird-proofing system which may beneficial.
