Solar PV panels are a highly efficient means of generating electricity from the sun, Solar electricity generation is dependent on light intensity, not on heat or direct sunlight – so it works even on cloudy days.PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced. Groups of cells are mounted together in panels or modules that can be mounted on y our roof.
The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance.
Solar PV needs little maintenance – you’ll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don’t begin to overshadow them. The panels should last 25 years or more, but the inverter is likely to need replacing some time during this period unless you decide to purchase Micro Inverters,See Inverter options.
The Feed in Tariff, also known as FIT, became available in the UK on the 1st April 2010. The Feed in Tariff is a Government-backed scheme that pays people to generate their own electricity using Solar Panels.
The current FIT payment for every KWh(Kilowatt Hour) of electricity generated is 14.9p; you will also be paid a further 4.64p for every KWh(Kilowatt Hour) of electricity you sell back to the grid.
The income generated from a 3.68kW system is approximately £900 a year for 20 years.
The FIT payment is TAX FREE, and Index linked to the UK retail price index (RPI). The FIT payments are guaranteed for 20 years from the date of first registration. Installing solar panels on the roof of your home will allow you to generate your own electricity and get paid for the electricity you produce.
