Domestic Solar PV – solar installations for homeowners

Installing domestic solar PV in your home could be one of the best financial investments you’ll ever make.

One of the most popular ways to reduce your home’s energy bills and generate household income is to install a domestic solar PV array.

As explained on our ‘Solar PV‘ page, domestic solar PV for your home generates electricity by converting the sun’s light into energy. Domestic PV installations enable customers to lower their annual electricity bills. Replacing grid demand with free solar energy reduce household expenditure.

In recent years, the price of installing solar PV in your home has reduced dramatically. This is a big reason why the popularity of solar PV has boomed. Combining the cost of installing solar PV in your home decreasing and the continuous rise in the price of more traditional sources of energy, fossil-fuels such as coal, oil and gas, solar PV is an affordable renewable energy solution for the majority of homeowners and an excellent long-term investment.

Another reason behind the increase in popularity of domestic solar energy installations is the introduction of the Feed-in Tariff. The Feed-in Tariff is a government backed scheme set up to incentivise solar installations by paying homeowners for the energy they produce and export.

The introduction of the Feed-in Tariff means that having solar PV in your home not only decreases the money spent on heating and powering your home, but provides a viable and substantial annual income for your home.

The advantages of installing Solar PV in your Home

There are numerous advantages to having solar PV installed in your home and we understand that each individual will turn to renewable energy for varying reasons. Below is a list of just a few of the benefits of installing solar PV in your home.

  • Installing solar PV in your home will significantly reduce your annual energy bills by replacing expensive energy bills with free solar energy.

 

  • A domestic solar PV system protects your home from rising levels of inflation and rising energy bills.

 

  • The Feed-in Tariff pays homeowners for the energy they generate and export.

 

  • Replacing harmful fossil fuels with green solar energy significantly reduces a home’s carbon output.

 

  • Installing solar PV in your home is a great way to optimise space. Unused roof space or surrounding land is ideal for solar installation.

 

  • Solar PV systems are a long-term renewable energy solution and require low levels of maintenance.

 

Battery Storage for Domestic solar PV

Battery storage is available today and it’s an excellent way to boost the financial and environmental benefits of both new and existing solar PV arrays.

Storage allows customers to harness much more of their solar generation.

Battery storage allows customers benefitting from solar PV to store energy generated during the day for consumption during the evening. Typically, grid prices are more expensive at these times. By storing solar generation in a battery system, customers are able to use nearly 100 percent of the energy they are generating and, therefore, increase the energy savings made by their array dramatically.
