Solar Panel Installation Chesterfield Derbyshire (S40): If you are looking at generating electricity or reducing your hot water bills with a solar energy installation on your Chesterfield home or business premises, what must you do to get the best out of it? There's never been a more opportune time to consider solar power installation with the SEG (Smart Export Guarantee), allowing you to sell back any excess power that you produce.
SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
The generation of electricity from the sun's rays has the technical term "solar photovoltaic", sometimes shortened to solar PV. In Chesterfield, and the British Isles on the whole, ample sunlight can be processed by solar PV to attain decent results from an installation on the roof of your property. A correctly located solar power installation can lower your energy bills and even provide a small income by making use of the Smart Export Guarantee scheme.
Additionally, there are ways to reduce the initial outlay of any solar panels by submitting an application for a Green Homes Grant. This was announced in July 2020 by the Government, and offers vouchers of between five and ten thousand pounds for energy saving renovations on your house. When you couple the Green Homes Grant with the SEG scheme it is easy to see why you've got a great opportunity to consider a solar energy system for your Chesterfield property.
SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS
Every home and business premises needs hot water, so why not generate it from the sun's rays? Using a photovoltaic thermal system will see your water, even in the depths of winter, being heated and thus reduce the gas or electricity required to bring it up to temperature. Summer times can see all your hot water demands being satisfied with a solar thermal installation on your Chesterfield home.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is also accessible to any home owner in Chesterfield using a solar thermal system to heat their water. The RHI was introduced for domestic use in 2014 after its preliminary introduction in the commercial sector several years previous. It offers a seven year support package for householders switching to renewable heating methods, including solar thermal systems. If your house is eligible to sign up for the scheme, you'll receive a cash payment every three months over the seven year period.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOLAR
There are various issues you will need to consider before you begin any installation on your home in Chesterfield:
- Does your roof face in a southerly or south-westerly direction? - Solar energy panels need to face in this direction in the Northern Hemisphere to absorb the maximum amount of energy from the sun's rays.
- Is your home's roof impacted by tall trees or high buildings which throw shade over it? - Shade will reduce the effectiveness of any solar panel and significant shading can even render them useless.
- Will installing solar panels affect my property's value? - The simple, but not especially helpful assessment from the Homeowners Association is that solar energy installations can have both a negative and positive impact on the market value of your house. Recent research suggests however, that due to the growing environmental awareness of the public in general, solar installations are having more positive effects on property prices that at any time in the past.
- Is planning permission needed for your location or property? - In most instances you won't require planning permission for the installation of solar panels on your home in Chesterfield. Your local planning department will offer advice and guidance on planning permission requirements if your home reside in a conservation area, have a listed building or have a flat roof.
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR
Reducing Bills - The biggest source of free energy that we can make use of is obviously, the sun. Therefore why don't you harvest that energy in your property? Aside from the initial expenditure of installing your solar PV installation, there are almost no maintenance charges to worry about, and you will start to notice a lowering of your energy bills fairly quickly. Exactly how much that is will depend upon the size of your installation, however even an average sized PV system can see a saving of between £90 and £370 annually on your electric bill in the Chesterfield area.
Noise Pollution - Solar panels and the associated equipment is entirely silent. Some people are disturbed by the low frequency noises that can be made by wind turbines, even in small residential based setups. Because solar PV and thermal systems in Chesterfield don't have any moving components during normal operation, there is no noise made by the equipment or panels.
Low-Maintenance - There is little or no maintenance required for solar panel installations in Chesterfield. The solar panels require only once yearly cleaning and will probably continue to give good service for at least 25 years. If your system has batteries attached for storage, these will have to be exchanged every ten years or so, but as technology is continually improving, battery life and efficiency is advancing every year.
Reducing Your Carbon Footprint - Solar PV and solar thermal systems both produce, renewable green energy. The power produced by solar panels does not create pollutants or emissions and could save approximately two tonnes of damaging carbon emissions from your property in Chesterfield every year.
Extra Income - Any unwanted electrical power your solar PV installation produces can easily be sold back to your provider through the Smart Export Guarantee, Government backed scheme. The Smart Export Guarantee scheme offers 3 monthly payments straight into your account, or can be applied as credit towards your electric bills. This Government supported scheme is a short term contract between the house owner and their utility supplier. This means you are not tied in to one electricity company and can swap providers to gain a better tariff when the contract is up for renewal.
FINDING A CERTIFIED INSTALLER
It's good practice to get at least three quotations from different solar panel installers in Chesterfield, and you should not omit to ask neighbours, family members and friends who've had panels installed for their feedback too. When you're getting a quote always ask about currently available grants and schemes which could offset costs and make the solar installation more cost-effective.
The surveyor will also be able to provide a means by which to see previous installations on similar homes for you to evaluate; either through a catalogue or via a website. A top-notch solar panel installer in Chesterfield will be delighted to show off their list of past clients and their experience in the installation industry, by offering a portfolio for you to browse through.
A professional solar panel installer in Chesterfield should have membership or affiliation with at least one renewable energy trade body. These specialized trade organisations provide technological updates, training and guidance on all things related to the renewable energy sector. Membership to one or more of the following green energy bodies should be a pre-requisite before deciding on any Chesterfield solar panel installer.
STA (Solar Trade Association) - Constantly at the forefront of low-carbon technology, the STA (Solar Trade Association) works alongside Government, local authorities and industry to offer solar solutions all around Britain. From localised generation on residential properties, to massive solar energy farms, the STA provides support and training on equipment, installations and is an established forerunner within the solar energy industry.
The Renewable Energy Association (REA) - Within the clean technology and alternative energy sector, the premier professional body is the REA (Renewable Energy Association). It represents more than 500 companies who are members and is invested in providing training and influencing UK policy towards a zero carbon economy.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme - The MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) is the mark all equipment, and solar panel installers, should have in Britain. The scheme offers a standard of quality for the solar PV panels and related equipment, and that the engineers providing and installing the system are qualified and fully trained to do this. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme encourages and supports the following sustainable technologies: air source heat pumps (ASHP's), battery storage systems, biomass heat generation and solar photovoltaic panels.
