So.. What are the benefits?
Solar PV not only brings financial benefits, but also environmental benefits by producing ‘Green energy’, and can increase the value of your house together with adding a desirable selling point.
According to the Energy Saving Trust, a typical home PV system could save around 1200 kg of CO2 per year – which over a lifetime could add up to around 30 tonnes!
In terms of lowering your carbon footprint there is no better choice!
Financially there are three ways of making a return on your investment, which are:
1) Free electricity, therefore lower electricity bills by up to 50%;
2) Feed In Tariff for kW hours produced, which are government backed, indexed linked and guaranteed;
3) Selling of unused electricity produced back to the grid.
