Solar Panel Installation Ware Hertfordshire (SG11): If you're thinking of installing solar panels, either for electricity generation or thermal (hot water), for your Ware home or business premises, it is helpful to get a low-down on the benefits and drawbacks of exactly what is involved. There are Government schemes and grants to greatly reduce the cost, and the Smart Export Guarantee, that succeeded the 2010 feed-in tariff scheme, can even yield a modest income from your solar panel installation.
SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
The proper expression for generating electricity from the sun is solar photovoltaic, or simply, solar PV. In Ware, and across the British Isles in general, ample sunlight can be utilised by photovoltaic panels to obtain good results from an installation on the roof of your property. A properly positioned photovoltaic panel installation can substantially reduce your power bills and even produce a small income through the SEG.
It is even possible to get assistance with paying for your solar energy panels with the Green Homes Grant. If you're thinking about energy saving renovations to your house, it is possible to apply for up to ten thousand pounds in grants by making use of this scheme, which was introduced by the Government in the summer of 2020. When you link the Green Homes Grant with the Smart Export Guarantee scheme it's easy to see why you have a great opportunity to consider a solar panel installation for your Ware property.
SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS
Solar thermal systems will allow you to lower your heating bills using nothing but free power from sunlight. Using a solar powered thermal system will see your water, even in the depths of winter, being heated up and thus reduce the electricity or gas required to bring it up to temperature. As the months warms up you'll realise that your energy bills have reduced even further, and summer time can see all of your hot water requirements being met by a thermal solar powered system.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is also offered to any homeowner in Ware using a solar thermal system to warm up their water. The RHI was introduced for residential use in 2014 after its successful preliminary introduction in the business sector a few years before. If you choose to adopt the Renewable Heat Incentive, the scheme lasts for 7 years and is endorsed by a government guarantee. Eligible participants of the RHI receive a quarterly cash return, based upon the type and size of equipment installed, which lasts the entire seven years included in the scheme.
CONSIDERATIONS FOR SOLAR
There are a number of things you will need to bear in mind before you start any solar panel installation on your property in Ware:
- Does your roof face in a southerly or south-westerly direction? - This helps to maximise the efficiency of the solar PV by capturing the largest possible amount of sunshine.
- Is the roof of your home shaded by buildings or trees during the day? - You want as much sunlight as possible for maximum effectiveness, and any shade will reduce the energy gains from the solar panels.
- Is planning permission necessary for your location or property? - For most homes and properties in Ware, solar energy installation will be on the approved list of improvements that can be done. Only if your home is in a conservation area, is a listed building or if you have a flat roof will you have to check out the restrictions in place with your local council.
- What effect on property values can solar installations cause? - According to the Homeowners Association, it is the case that positive and negative adjustments have occurred in the past owing to solar power installations on a property. As understanding grows about climate changes and the environment, it's been seen that the positive impacts on house prices have grown.
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR
No Noise Pollution - Solar is entirely silent. Other alternative energy solutions, like wind generators, can make sounds which a lot of people find annoying. As there are no moving parts in solar panel installations in Ware, they don't make any noise.
Extra Income - Any unwanted electrical power your solar PV installation generates can easily be sold back to your energy provider using the Smart Export Guarantee, Government backed scheme. The Smart Export Guarantee scheme offers three monthly payments direct to your account, or can be credited towards your electric bills. This Government guaranteed scheme is a contract between the home owner and their electricity supplier. By offering short term contracts within the SEG, it gives homeowners the ability to switch providers and tariffs for more lucrative deals at the end of any contractual obligation.
Low Carbon Footprint - Producing green, renewable energy in your household is achievable using either thermal or solar PV systems on your home. The power produced by solar panels creates no emissions or pollutants and could save nearly 2 tonnes of harmful carbon emissions from your Ware property annually.
Maintenance - There is little or no maintenance required for solar panel installations in Ware. The solar panels require only annual cleaning and will probably continue to give good service for at least 25 years. If your solar panel installation uses batteries for storage, these will have to be swapped out every 10 years or so, however as this technology is constantly developing, efficiency and battery life is getting better every year.
Reduced Bills - There's no charge for the main source of energy we know: the sun. So why not make good use of it? Once you've paid for your solar installation you will find that your energy bills will be lower. How much will depend upon the size of your solar panel installation, however even a standard sized solar energy system can see savings of between £90 - £370 per year on your electric bill in the Ware area.
