Solar PV & Wind turbines

Generate Cheap, Green Electricity from Sunlight

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic 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.

The Benefits of Solar Electricity

  • Cut your electricity bills. Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced.
  • Get paid for the electricity you generate. The UK government’s Feed-In Tariff scheme pays you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it.
  • Sell electricity back to the grid. If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid through the Feed-in Tariff scheme.
  • Cut your carbon footprint. Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne and a half of carbon dioxide per year – that’s more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.

Cost and savings for England, Scotland and Wales

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 electricity needs. It will save nearly two tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. A 4kWp system in Scotland can generate about 3,200 kilowatt hours of electricity a year – more than three quarters of a typical household’s electricity needs. It will save more than a tonne and a half of carbon dioxide every year.

The average domestic solar PV system is 4kWp and costs £5,000 – 8,000 (including VAT at 5 %)

Wind Turbines

You can generate electricity at home and your business with small-scale wind turbines. Wind turbines harness the power of the wind and use it to generate electricity. About 40 per cent of all wind energy in Europe blows over the UK, making it an ideal country for domestic and commercial turbines. A typical system in an exposed site can easily generate more power than your lights and electrical appliances use.

The Benefits of Wind Turbines

  • Cut your electricity bills: Wind is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be reduced.
  • Get paid for what you generate: Through Feed- in Tariff, you get paid for the electricity you generate even if you use it. What you don’t use, you can export to the local grid – and get paid for that too.
  • Cut your carbon footprint: Wind electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.
  • Store electricity for a calm day: If your home isn’t
