...renewable energy provides genuine cost-saving solutions & ensures future protection for our environment

The Problem - Increasing demand, rising costs & environmental damage.

As the UK embarks on the transition to a carbon neutral future, more and more energy will have to be generated. It is anticipated that over the next 20 years alone, and even by 2030 we will require an extra 50% of electricity generation and 50% more electrical infrastructure so, to put it bluntly, there simply is not enough energy to deliver the EU and British government's objectives.

Even with the Governments new Nuclear power station, Hinkley Point C, being constructed in Somerset at a cost of £20.3 billion, due to be completed in 2025 there will still be an energy shortage and as the cost will be handed back to British Electricity consumers, yes we will be picking up the tab for the next 35 years and energy prices are about to rocket. Energy prices on average double every 10 years, about 9% increase year on year but by adding the cost of Hinkley point into the mix, prices are only going one way and that’s up, fast!

Lithium-Ion batteries allow electrical energy from your solar panels to be stored. This means energy can be used at any time, regardless of when it's generated.

Photo-voltaic (PV) Panels on the roof of your property convert sunlight into electrical energy. These generate electricity continuously throughout the day (even if its cloudy).

Inverter/ Power Module manages where your electricity is drawn from and, if there is a surplus of generated electricity, will feed this into the grid (or charge your batteries).

But there is another way, and the solution is Solar!

The Financial Benefits

Switching to renewable energy sources offers a number of financial benefits. Put simply, sunlight is free! After the initial cost of your installation, you can benefit from free energy all year round.

But as well as saving you money on your electricity bills, you can also make money by switching to renewable energy. The Government's feed-in-tariff scheme (due to end in April 2019) offers financial incentives for electricity generated at home. Surplus energy generated through your system is fed back into the grid, earning you both a generation fee of 3.86p/Kwh and an export tariff of 5.24p/Kwh.

Recent advancements in battery technology also now mean you can store the energy you generate. This enables use of your free energy 24 hours a day - regardless of whether your solar panels are generating electricity at that moment or not.

Environmental Benefits

It's well documented that switching to renewable energy sources can have a huge benefit on our environment.

Traditional method of generating electricity (namely, the burning of fossil fuels) is a very dirty and damaging process. The Energy Saving Trust estimate that by switching to renewable energy sources, the average UK home could save around 1.2 - 1.7 tonnes of Carbon per year.

Added to this immediate saving is the saving we can make on the infrastructure. The Association of Decentralised Energy concluded in a recent report that a staggering £9.5 billion worth of energy is wasted throughout our ageing generation and electrical supply networks, before it even reaches homes and businesses,

 

This wasted electricity is equivalent to £354 per household!

Plan for the future - Did you know that the price of electricity has DOUBLED over the last 10 years?

It's a shocking (no pun intended) statistic, but it's a trend that looks to continue. As the cost of electricity continues to rise, the financial benefits of having your own renewable energy systems becomes greater and greater. The good news is that a system fitted today will continue to save you this money well into the future - guarding you against these future price hikes.
