We Are Solar Panel Installers In Gillingham

Alternative “green” energy is becoming more popular with solar systems taking the biggest share of the green market. These systems produce DC electricity from sunlight and convert it to AC using the inverter, which is then used in the household.

Solar PV panels can be seen just about anywhere in Gillingham, Kent and throughout the UK. For those who are yet to adopt solar energy or just looking to get more informed, you have come to the right place as we have covered every important topic you need to know about solar panel installation. Be sure to read to the end so you can make informed decisions.

Solar energy has changed the power industry and for good reasons. For starters, it provides clean, renewable energy that can be used for diverse purposes, including powering homes, heating water, powering cars, and more. Solar power is harnessed from the sun, which we cannot run out of unlike other sources of energy like natural gas, oil, and coal. Plus, these fossil fuels emit carbon footprint that affects water, soil, and air quality, and are responsible for climate change.

You’ll also experience significant savings with solar energy. The cost of solar panels has dropped significantly in recent years, and with no moving parts to break down, you will also save on maintenance. Since you will be generating power, your energy costs will drop. How much you save on your current electricity bills will depend on the size of your solar system, its energy efficiency rate, and your energy consumption needs.

Did you know that your solar system can earn you some money? The government’s feed-in tariff will pay you for every unit of electricity you generate and offer a bonus payment if you feed it back to the national grid. Other popular grants for solar energy are the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, the average combined savings and earnings from solar panel installation can range between £305-495 a year.

If you are ready to cash in on all these and more benefits, the next logical step is to hire us to fit the solar panels for you.

Solar PV Panel Installation Gillinghambest birmingham solar pv installers

Solar panel systems can be a sizeable investment, but the good news is the prices have dropped dramatically in recent years, making solar systems more affordable than ever to the homeowners of Gillingham.

Giving the exact cost of a solar panel unit installation is impossible as it depends on the type, quality, and size of the system, as well as the service provider, among other factors. However, to give you an idea of what to expect, having a 1kW solar system installed in Gillingham will set you back around £2,000 for a decent system. For a 2Kw, 3kW, and 4kW solar system, expect to spend from £2,500-4,000, £4,000-6,000, and £5,500-8,000, respectively.

These figures might still seem like a considerable investment for many despite the dropping prices, but you have to think in the long term. Once your solar system is set up, your energy costs will drop significantly, and you will earn some money from government grants.

A well-designed, properly installed solar PV system will require minimal to no maintenance over the years. However, you may have to replace the inverter in about 10 years (costs about £800). You’ll also need to factor in about £100 a year for the annual service plus insurance premium payments. The need for repairs is quite infrequent, and if need be, chances are the warranty will cover. Solar panels can last from 25-30 years –or sometimes more –with payback periods as short as 5-6 years.

Solar Battery Storage Gillingham

Solar panel systems have been complemented by solar battery storage solutions, turning this technology into a significantly more efficient source of sustainable energy. That’s because solar batteries store excess (unused) energy generated by the solar system for later use. It is when daylight hours have disappeared or on cloudy days or during power blackouts that solar battery storage solutions come in handy to power your home/office.

As long as your power demands don’t exceed the supply your battery can provide, you will be able to run your home on renewable energy around the clock. In addition to lowering your energy costs, a solar panel battery allows you to become independent from the national grid, thus ensuring energy security for your household. You can even earn money selling the extra stored energy to the grid.

All these benefits seem enticing, but you’re probably wondering how much this cost you. Well, the cost of a solar battery storage system ranges from £1,200 to £6,000, depending on the type of the battery and brand, as well as its capacity, chemical composite, and lifespan. Another important factor to consider when choosing a solar battery storage system is the Depth of Discharge (DoD), which is how much you can use the battery before needing to recharge. Lithium-ion solar batteries are a popular choice for being cost-effective, compact, and with more capacity. Alternatively, you can go for AC or DC batteries.

Solar Assisted Heat Pump Gillingham

A Solar Assisted Heat Pump has only:

*A reciprocating compressor and an externally sited aluminium roll bond heat exchanger (evaporator)

In addition to extracting heat from the outside air, Solar Assisted Heat Pumps also receive efficiency uplifts from solar irradiance on the externally sited and exposed, large surface area of the aluminium roll bond heat exchanger panel when the UV rays are hitting it.

In summary, Solar Assisted Heat Pumps share the same basic principles of operation as an Air Source Heat Pump but they also utilise passive convection (wind) rather than forced convection, so they do not require fans, they heat the water directly, therefore do not require pumps, plate heat exchangers or motorised valves and so they have fewer moving parts, fewer maintenance actions, lower electrical consumption, lower noise levels AND they utilise solar irradiance.
