Solar panels, also known as solar pv, capture energy from the sun using photovoltaic cells. The cells do not need direct sunlight to generate electricity – they still work on cloudy days. The solar cells convert sunlight into green energy, which can be used to power things such as household appliances and lighting.
The Benefits Of Installing Solar Panels
There are many benefits of installing solar panels:
- Reduce your carbon footprint – Solar energy is green renewable energy that doesn’t give off any carbon dioxide.
- Get paid – The governments feed-in-tariff scheme pays you for the electricity your solar panels generate, even if you use it.
- Sell excess electricity – You can also earn more money by selling the surplus electricity your solar panels generate back to the grid.
- Reduced bills – Solar panels help to reduce your energy bills as you require less electricity from the national grid.
The feed-in-tariff scheme was introduced by the government in 2010 to help increase the take-up of renewable energy technologies. The scheme is open to homeowners and community groups in England, Wales & Scotland. The feed-in-tariff pays you a set rate per unit of electricity that is generated by your solar panels. The scheme then pays you an additional rate for any surplus electricity your solar panels generate and send back to the grid.
