FREE or PAID FOR SOLAR PANELS?

Free Option

Get Green energy fixed for life and secure your energy against future price increases. Fixing our energy is a smart way to get solar.

Pay nothing up front for the equipment, installation or maintenance and instead pay a low cost fixed price for any solar electricity you use. It’s cheaper  than buying electricity from the grid and greener too.

 

Paid-For Option

We can offer a full 4KW system at a supplied and installed total cost of £5,500 Inc VAT.

You get the electricity that you generate for free and you get to keep the Feed In Tarif payments from the government of £4,500.

 

Off Grid Option

Combine a Solar Panel with a battery and an Air Source Heat Pump to take your home virtually off-grid reducing your reliance on conventional utility companies to a minimum.

Generate your own electricity via the Solar Panels, which powers the Air Source Heat Pump that provides heating and hot water to your home, cleanly, for free without any fossil fuels being burned so you get to keep the Feed In Tariff payments of £4,500 plus the renewable heat incentive payments from the government.

What are Solar Panels?

Solar panel electricity systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. These cells do not require direct sunlight to work, they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells then convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used across the home.

Benefits of Solar Panels:

Cut your electricity bills. Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced.

·         Get paid for the electricity you generate. The UK government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme pays you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it.

·         Sell electricity back to the grid. You will also receive another payment for the electricity you export through the Feed-in Tariff scheme.

·         Cut your carbon footprint. Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants. A typical home solar PV system could save around 1.5 to 2 tonnes of carbon per year.

How do Solar Panels work?

·         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 that can either be mounted on your roof or on the ground.

·          

·         The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That's the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer. PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes, however most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of an existing roof.

How many Panels are you allowed?

The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). A domestic property is allowed a maximum of a 4kw producing system, under the Feed In Tariff scheme.

Why are Solar Panels So effective?

Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation, your electricity costs will be reduced. The UK government?s Feed-in Tariffs pay you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it. If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid. Solar electricity is green renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.

How long do Solar Panels last?

Solar panels should last 25 years or more, but the inverter is likely to need replacing some time during this period, at a current cost of about £800.

 

The financial benefits to installing Solar Panels

What is the Feed In Tariff?

Feed-in Tariffs were introduced on 1 April 2010 and replaced UK government grants as the main financial incentive to encourage uptake of renewable electricity-generating technologies. Most domestic technologies qualify for the scheme, including Solar Panels.

How much Is the Feed In Tariff For Solar Panels?

Once you are receiving Feed-in Tariffs, the rate you get will increase in line with inflation in accordance with the Retail Price Index (RPI). For the full list of tariff rates visit Ofgem.

So are you looking to purchase a Solar PV System?

If you have already decided you want to Install a Solar system on your property and don’t want the unnecessary hassle of dealing with sales staff then we have the solution for you.

Here at Saving Energy Group we have a simple, low cost method of taking advantage of this technology to lower your fuel bills and get paid for doing so!

The Solar System we install is a complete package: Panels, Inverter, Wiring and Support Structure, and is quickly and simply fitted to your property in most cases in one day.

 

There have been many improvements in Solar Technology over the last decade, resulting in lower costs to the customer and higher efficiency of the product. On average, to have a new Solar PV Array fitted to your property will cost between £6,000 - £8,000.

Our business model is different to most operators. The main difference is that we do not employ Sales staff. We believe the technology speaks for itself and that people who just want to go ahead with getting a Solar PV Array installed should not have to feel pressurised into spending more than is required.

Because we do not employ Sales staff we do not have to pay any commission, so we are able to pass this reduced cost of doing business onto the customer.

We can offer a full system at a total cost of £5,250 Inc VAT.

 

 

Solar PV+ Optimiser

This is a new product aimed at improving the efficiency of a Solar PV System by 25%.

The problem faced by Solar systems is that when it is generating at full capacity the inverter often switches over to Over-Voltage Mode and ceases to generate at all. This is due to 50%+ of UK households receiving too much voltage into their homes. Although this is is within a safe and regulated amount, the result is that you could be losing 25% of the peak efficiency of the Solar System.

The Optimiser System can combat this by monitoring the incoming voltage it allows the Solar PV Inverter to compliantly stay in circuit for longer, preventing nusiance over-voltage shut down. The Optimiser can reduce stress through voltage over heating and increase the Solar PV Generation. This provides a much faster return on investment on new and existing systems alike.
