Fewer Co2 emissions: By generating your own energy, you will greatly reduce your carbon footprint, which contributes less to the negative impact that harmful fossil fuels have on the environment. You can operate a green household with free clean energy.
Energy independence: As your solar PV system generates its own power, you won’t have to rely on the grid to power your home. This is especially handy during a power cut as you will still have power and can rely on your own home. Immune from energy price increase: As we all know energy prices are unpredictable and can increase at any time. By generating your own electricity, you avoid these steep and sudden price increases.
Earn income from surplus electricity: One of the most attractive benefits of solar PV systems is the ability to sell any additional power you generate back to the grid for a tidy profit thanks to the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG).

Solar Panel Installs & Systems Blackburn
How Does Solar PV (SPV) Work?
Absorption of sunlight: When sunlight hits the thin layer of semiconductive material, it triggers the release of electrons from silicon atoms. The negatively charged electrons are then attracted to the positively charged side of the cell.
Conversion from DC to AC: The electricity absorbed from sunlight is DC (direct current) using an inverter. This is converted into AC (alternating current), which is the type of electricity used to power appliances within your home.
Distribution: The panels themselves are not connected directly to the appliances within your home. The electricity that is generated is sent to an electric panel which distributes the energy to the appliances in your home.
Net metering: Your electric meter then records the amount of electricity that your home is using and any excess electricity that is generated is credited to your account through a process called net metering.

Frequently Asked Questions Solar PV (SPV FAQ’s)
Q: Will solar panels save me money? A: The power generated by SPV will start to lower your energy bills as soon as they are operational. On average, you could save as much as £300-£500 annually with SEG payments earning you an additional £100-£200.
Q: Are SPV systems VAT free? A: As of January 1st 2023, the supply and installation of residential SPV is currently VAT-free.
Q: Is SPV good for the environment? A: Yes, SPV systems are good for the environment. They generate electricity from the sun’s rays, which is a 100% clean energy source. They also produce no Co2 emissions, which greatly reduces your carbon footprint.
Q: Is planning permission needed to install an SPV system? A: Solar PV installations are normally considered a “permitted development”, meaning planning is not required, but we would still advise you to check with your local authority.
Q: How do SPV systems work? A: SPV systems work by converting sunlight into electricity through a process known as the photovoltaic effect. Solar panels are made up of layers of solar cells which are made of semiconductor materials, like silicon. When sunlight hits the solar panel, it separates electrons from the atoms in the semiconductor material, creating a flow of electricity.
Q: Can solar panels power my entire house? A: It is possible to power your home solely using solar power, but it depends on several factors, like the size of your SPV system, the energy consumption of your property, and the amount of sunlight in the area where it is located.
