For centuries we have harnessed the power of the sun but it is only recently that we have been able to trap and store that power effectively.
Photovoltaic (PV) panels or solar panels as they are more commonly known, use the energy from the sun to generate electricity with no waste and no emissions. This can then be used to run appliances and lighting.
Importantly for the UK, solar panels do not rely on direct sunlight to work – as long as there is daylight, power will be generated. If your home produces excess power and your Solar Panels are connected to the mains, then electricity can be transferred back to the UK national grid – if your supplier has a scheme that allows this.
Feed-In Tariff uk: With the introduction of the UK government’s “Feed-In-Tariff” in 2010 there is no better time to consider Solar Panels.
The Sunday Times ranked it as the 5th best investment opportunity!
