Installing solar PV is a great way to reduce the carbon footprint of your home or business, as well as reducing a property’s energy bills. In addition, customers benefitting from a solar array will get paid for all the energy they generate through the Smart Export Guarantee.
Firstly, energy generated from a solar array replaces electricity demand from the grid. As a result, this creates a significant saving on annual bills.
Depending on usage, home’s and businesses can save £1,000’s every year.
Secondly, by replacing demand from the grid with renewable solar power, solar installations dramatically reduce a home or business’ carbon footprint.
Properties benefitting from a solar array will reduce their carbon emissions by a number of tonnes each year.
Finally, the Smart Export Guarantee pays customers generating solar for unused energy sent back to the grid.
For example, if a home is generating 4kWh and only able to use 2kWh their energy bills are offset as well as being paid for the 2kWh of energy they aren’t able to consume.

Harnessing as much of the power generated by a solar array is the best way to maximise the benefit of a solar install. There are numerous ways to utilise more of your solar generation.
Battery storage is a great way to consume more of your solar energy.
Energy ordinarily sent back to the grid charges into a bank of batteries. This energy then replaces grid demand during the evening or overnight, creating further energy savings and reducing carbon footprint.
