Is a solar PV system financially viable?
Yes, solar PV is a clean technology that is fundamentally cheaper than electricity from the grid! Not only are you able to save money on your electricity bills, but you could make an income through the government guaranteed Feed In Tariff scheme. For the next 20 years, you could receive an income that will help to pay for the system and, once the system pays for itself, you are making a profit for the remainder of your Feed In Tariff contract with your energy supplier, you can get a quick estimate by contacting us
How long will my solar PV system last?
The panels have a 20 year, 80% output warranty but they will continue working after that.
What are Feed-in Tariffs?
The Feed-in Tariff is a UK government sponsored incentive scheme designed to encourage the introduction of renewable energy sources. This ‘clean energy cashback’ will allow many people to invest in the small scale, low carbon technology, in return for a guaranteed payment for the electricity they generate.
Will a battery storage addon to my PV system affect my Feed-in Tariff payments?
No, you still receive the same payments from the Feed-in Tariff, even if you have a battery installed.
What is an EPC and do I need one?
An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate that assesses how energy efficient your home is, an EPC certificate is required pre-commissioning of your solar PV system to qualify for the higher rate of government Feed-in Tariff payments.
Does the solar PV system need servicing?
A solar PV system does not normally need servicing as it has no moving parts and the other components, such as cables and connectors, are designed to withstand the environmental conditions in which they are installed – we can service underperforming solar PV systems if you think you may have been installed by a rogue company which has ceased trading.
Are your electricians qualified?
Yes, all our electricians are NICEIC qualified to 17th Edition as stipulated by the IEE (The Institute of Electrical Engineers). We only ever use qualified electricians. You will not have a trainee working on your project.
When do I need a rewire?
There are no set guidelines as to when a property should be rewired. Just because your wiring’s old, doesn’t mean it’s unsafe. We can test your wiring, which will give an indication if you need a rewire or not.
Many factors can affect the wear and tear of your electrical installation, including the materials used and how your property has been used.
You should carry out regular checks around the house on the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories. If you notice anything unusual – for example, burn marks on plugs and sockets, sounds of ‘arcing’ (buzzing or crackling), fuses blowing or circuit-breakers tripping – contact us. We offer an out-of-hours emergency service if required.
