Advanced domestic solar panel technology

Solar panels cut your electricity bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Solar electricity panels capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity for use in your home.

How solar panels work

Light to electricity
A solar panel is made of semi-conducing cells that convert light in to a flow of electricity.
Works on cloudy days
Solar panels don’t require direct sunlight to work; however, they do generate more energy in strong sunshine.
Typical systems
Standard systems consist of around 10 panels and generate approximately 355W of energy in strong sunlight.
Energy use
Electricity can be used throughout your home and excess power can be exported to the grid.

Benefits of solar panels

Funding available with government-backed grants

As part of the UK government’s initiative to cut carbon emissions, grants are available to fund energy-efficient upgrades to homes with low energy ratings.

If you are living on a low-income or receive income-related benefits, you could be eligible to receive full funding for home insulation, air source heating and solar panel energy.
