Solar Panel Installation Northallerton North Yorkshire (DL6): If you're considering reducing your hot water bills or generating electricity with a solar installation on your Northallerton home, what should you do to get the best results out of it? There's never been a more opportune time to look at solar installations with the Smart Export Guarantee, enabling you to sell back any surplus power you produce.
SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
The generation of electricity from the sun's rays is usually known as "solar photovoltaic", commonly shortened to solar PV. In Northallerton, and Great Britain in general, adequate sunlight can be processed by solar PV to accomplish great results from an installation on your property.

The Green Homes Grant is a recently introduced scheme to help home owners save energy and lower their carbon footprint, and can be used to cover a large part of the cost of a solar panels. You can make an application for this grant, which was introduced in the summer of 2020, of between £5,000 - £10,000 if you're applying certain green energy measures to your home. You've got the perfect opportunity right now, by using the SEG scheme and the Green Home Grant, to install a solar PV system on your Northallerton home, for a small fraction of the cost, and also receive a modest quarterly income from it.
SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS
Solar powered installations will allow you to lower your heating bills using free power from the sun's rays. The employment of a photovoltaic thermal system will see your water, even during the depths of winter, being heated and thus reduce the electricity or gas required to bring it up to temperature. In summertime it is even quite possible to have all your hot water requirements met with nothing but a solar thermal system fitted.
Solar powered thermal systems can be included on the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. The scheme was brought in for residential use in 2014 after its successful preliminary introduction in the commercial sector several years previous. It gives a 7 year support program for householders switching to renewable heating alternatives, including photovoltaic thermal installations. Eligible participants of the Renewable Heat Incentive receive a quarterly cash pay out, determined by the type and size of equipment in place, which lasts the whole seven years included in the scheme.
