Solar Panel Installation Molesey Surrey (KT8): Property in Molesey is well situated to make good use of solar panel installations, but what are the benefits in having such a system installed? No one would argue that it's an excellent time to be thinking about solar power installations with Government backed schemes, like the SEG (Smart Export Guarantee) offering ways to make money from these systems.
SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
The generation of electricity from the sun has the technical term "solar photovoltaic", frequently shortened to solar PV. Excellent results and electrical production can be accomplished by solar panels installed on your Molesey property. This means it is quite possible to lower your overall power bills, and perhaps even gain a small return on your investment through the SEG scheme, selling off your excess electricity back to your current provider.
Additionally you can get help with funding the cost of your solar powered installation with the Green Homes Grant. You are able to submit an application for this grant, which was announced in the summer of 2020, of between five and ten thousand pounds if you're applying certain green energy measures to your property. When you join the Green Homes Grant with the SEG scheme it's easy to see why you have the perfect opportunity to consider a solar energy system for your property in Molesey.
SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS
Every home and business premises needs hot water, so why wouldn't you use the sun to generate it? Even during winter there is ample sunshine to preheat your home's water and consequently reduce the amount of electricity or gas consumed to take the water up to temperature. Summertime can see all of your hot water demands being satisfied with a solar powered thermal installation on your Molesey property.
Schemes offered to Molesey house owners include the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive). Since 2011 only available to the commercial sector, the Renewable Heat Incentive was introduced for residential use in 2014. If you decide to take up the Renewable Heat Incentive, the plan carries on for 7 years and is endorsed by a government guarantee. All signed up members of the scheme will get a three monthly cash pay out for the duration of the scheme.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOLAR
If you think you're ready to install solar panels on your Molesey home, you must think about the following issues:
- Do solar panels on my property have any effect on its market value? - The simple, but not especially helpful answer from the Homeowners Association is that solar panel installations can have both a negative and positive effect on the market value of your house. Recent research shows however, that thanks to the growing environmental awareness, solar panel installations are showing more positive impacts on property values than previously.
- Is planning permission needed for your area or property? - For most homes and properties in Molesey, solar panels will be on the approved list of alterations that can be carried out. Only if your home is in a conservation area, is listed or if you have a flat roof will you need to check up on the restrictions in place with your local authority.
- Is your roof affected by tall trees, buildings or other obstructions which create shade on it? - Any amount of shade on the solar panels will lessen their working capability and might even make them largely ineffectual.
- Does your roof have a south or south-west facing aspect? - Solar energy panels must face this direction in the Northern Hemisphere to absorb the maximum amount of power from the sun.
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR
Extra Income - With the SEG, any extra electrical power generated by a solar panel installation can be sold back to your energy supplier. This might be by way of cash payments or as credit to your electric bill each quarter. The Smart Export Guarantee applies only through your electricity supplier, and is a scheme backed by a Government guarantee. By providing short term contracts as part of the SEG, it gives homeowners the ability to switch suppliers and tariffs for more lucrative deals at the conclusion of any contractual obligations.
Reduced Bills - The main source of free energy that we can make the most of is obviously, the sun. Therefore why don't you make good use of this energy in your home? Besides the initial investment of installing your solar panels, there will be very little maintenance charges to worry about, and you'll start to notice a lowering of your energy bills pretty quickly. The size of your solar panel installation will have an effect on the the amount of savings you can enjoy, but an average solar PV system could save you ninety and three hundred and seventy pounds (depending on your circumstances) per year on your bills.
Low Carbon Footprint - Solar thermal systems and solar PV both provide, green renewable energy. There are no damaging emissions, no pollutants and you can save nearly 2 tonnes of carbon from contaminating the atmosphere annually.
Noise Pollution - There is no noise with solar installations. A lot of people are disturbed by the low frequency noises that are made by wind turbines, even in small domestic based setups. Because there are no moving components in solar installations in Molesey, there is no noise involved.
Maintenance Free - Solar powered installations in Molesey are virtually maintenance free. The angle at which the solar panels are set in the British Isles means that they are essentially self-cleaning, and as long as they're kept free of shade, will carry on providing electrical power and heat for a minimum of twenty five years. A solar installation with battery storage capacity will require more maintenance than a basic grid tie setup, but the life, storage and efficiency of battery packs is improving as technology progresses.
