How Does A Solar Panel System Reduce Your Electricity Bill? Solar Panel Installers London Explain...
If you’ve already done your homework 😉 then click this link, Solar Panel Installers London for your bespoke quotation! (It opens in a new window)
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits a solar panel, it is absorbed by the photovoltaic cells and is converted into direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity. This AC electricity can be used to power your home or business, or it can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.
Here’s a more detailed explanation of how solar panels produce electricity:
Photons in sunlight knock electrons loose from the atoms in the photovoltaic cells, generating a flow of electricity.
The photovoltaic cells are made up of layers of semiconductor materials, usually silicon. When sunlight hits the cell, it creates an electric field across the layers.
The electric field causes the electrons to flow, creating a current. Metal conductive plates on the top and bottom of the cell collect the current and direct it through wires to the inverter.
The inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panel into AC electricity, which is the type of electricity used in homes and businesses.
The AC electricity is then sent to a breaker panel, where it is distributed to the electrical devices in your home or business. Any excess electricity can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.
Overall, solar panels use the energy from the sun to produce electricity, which can be used to power your home or business and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels. Continued below…
A solar inverter, also known as a photovoltaic (PV) inverter, converts the direct current (DC) electricity produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity that is used in most homes and businesses.
Here is how it works:
- The solar panels on the roof of a home or building capture sunlight and convert it into DC electricity.
- The DC electricity is then sent to the solar inverter, which is typically mounted on a suitable wall or in a loft space, maybe in a utility room.
- The inverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity, which is compatible with the electrical grid and can be used to power appliances and devices in the home or building.
- The AC electricity is then sent to the main electrical panel, also known as the breaker box or fuse box, where it can be distributed to different circuits and outlets throughout the home or building.
Some solar inverters are designed to work with a single solar panel or a small array of panels, while others are designed to work with larger solar systems that have many panels. There are several different types of solar inverters available, including string inverters, microinverters, and central inverters. Each type has its own unique features and benefits, and the best choice for a particular installation will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the system Continued below…
As opposed to a “traditional” inverter, micro – inverters are devices that convert direct current (DC) electricity, which is produced by solar panels, into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity that is used in homes and businesses. They are typically installed in photovoltaic (PV) systems to maximize the efficiency of the system and to allow each solar panel to operate independently.
Here’s how microinverters work:
- Solar panels generate DC electricity when they are exposed to sunlight.
- The DC electricity is sent to the microinverter, which is typically mounted on the back of the solar panel or on a nearby wall.
- The microinverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity using an electronic circuit.
- The AC electricity is then sent to a distribution panel or an electrical load, such as an appliance or a light.
Microinverters have several benefits over traditional inverters, which are used in most PV systems. For example, microinverters allow each solar panel to operate independently, which can increase the overall efficiency of the system. They also allow for easier maintenance and troubleshooting, as each solar panel can be tested and monitored individually. In addition, microinverters are typically more reliable than traditional inverters, as they have fewer components and are less prone to failure. Continued below…
Solar storage batteries are used to store excess energy produced by solar panels so it can be used at a later time, such as when the sun is not shining or during a power outage. Here’s how they work:
Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity.
The DC electricity is sent to a solar inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used by household appliances.
Any excess solar energy that is not used is sent to a solar storage battery.
The battery stores the excess energy in the form of chemical energy. When the battery is full, it will stop accepting more energy.
When the solar panels are not producing enough energy to meet the demand (e.g., at night or during a power outage), the battery will release the stored energy in the form of AC electricity.
The released energy is then sent to the household’s electrical panel and distributed to appliances as needed.
Solar storage batteries come in a variety of sizes and types, including lead-acid, lithium-ion, and nickel-metal hydride. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as cost, lifespan, and efficiency.
"Why Do You Need To See My Utility Bill Before Giving Me A Quote For Solar Panels?"
It is standard operating procedure for any reputable Solar Energy Company to take a look at your utility bill prior to providing you with a quotation for your solar panel installation. This is essential to accurately estimate the potential return on your investment as well as the energy cost savings.
“The other solar company I contacted gave me an accurate quote without seeing my utility bill.”
“No they didn’t!
Quotes provided without seeing your utility bill may be wildly inaccurate and should be viewed cautiously. It is important to remember that a proper assessment of the solar panel system’s cost, savings and return on investment is impossible without a review of your utility bill.
The first step is for us to view your home or land using a google satellite view to determine your solar panel system eligibility based on shading as well as roof and property size.
Analysing your utility bill is the important second step in the quotation process. After that, as we put your bespoke quotation together, we’ll explain the panel type and size that will benefit you the most and discuss the benefits of solar storage batteries with you.
Carrying out the above ensures your system will be sized appropriately to meet your current and projected future demand. This way, your home does not have a system installed that will be bigger or smaller than what you need.
To summarize, accurately calculating your potential energy cost savings and ROI from solar is basically impossible without seeing your utility bill and historical usage. If you are serious about discovering whether a solar panel installation for your property in London is right for you, rest assured this is standard operating procedure from the best solar companies.

Are you a homeowner looking for an alternative energy source to save money on electricity bills? A Solar panel installation for a London homeowner gives you the opportunity to reduce your energy usage from the grid by between 40% and 80%, depending on whether you have solar battery storage installed as well.
Solar panel installations are now cheaper than before as there has been a drop in the cost of manufacturing solar photovoltaic cells. Plus, there’s an increase in competition amongst solar installation companies. If you care for the environment, installing solar panels can also help you support London’s target of reducing its CO2 emission by 60% by the year 2025. This is all while generating an income from the extra power that you generate and supply to the grid.
Modern solar systems also have an increased product lifecycle, which means that you will get value for your money in the long term even if the initial cost of installation is high. Well-designed and properly installed solar systems require little maintenance, as you are only required to replace the inverter after 25 years.
We Are Solar Panel Installers In London
We offer a variety of solar renewable energy systems including: solar PV panels, solar micro-inverters, solar power-optimisers and solar battery storage systems. Our teams of installers are highly-trained renewable energy engineers who are MCS-certified and RECC-registered.

Solar panels, inverter & battery installed:
After our MCS registered installers have secured the solar panels to the “rails” frame and wired them in, the inverter is installed and connected to the battery (if chosen) and the grid input. The inverter transforms the energy (DC) generated from the solar panels into electricity (AC) that your home can use.
What Is The Cost Of Solar PV Installations In London?
The cost of solar panel installation depends on factors like size and type of the system you choose as well as the material of the panels. We will advise you about the number of solar panels you need depending on your average energy consumption, type and size of your roof and your budget. Most households in London can do with 3kW solar PV systems, which cost roughly between £4,000 and £6,000. We can discuss your needs and provide a quotation without any obligation on your part.
We will come up with a tailor-made solution according to your budget and the size of your roof. The roof surface exposed to direct sunlight is the best place for your solar panels to be installed, however, our pre-install software that we use for preparing your quotation, does this for you! As stated earlier, having a solar storage battery system as a backup for your energy needs will significantly reduce your energy bills and also help you whenever there are power blackouts.
Another benefit of solar panels is that you can generate some income by sending your surplus energy generated through the solar panels back to the national grid. Unlike the previous Feed-in-Tariff, the current Smart Export Guarantee allows homeowners to negotiate short-term contracts with different operators. This enables them to choose the provider who bids the highest fare and without exit fees. Solar panel owners in the UK can earn up to £600 per year from the sold electricity.

Solar PV Installations In London
We understand all of the benefits of installing modern solar energy solutions for your home in London. Solar panels are manufactured in different ways, the most popular are listed below although “thin film” is used primarily (currently) for mobile solutions – RV’s and boats for example.
- Monocrystalline: These are the best choice for home applications due to their efficiency. Their design and construction allow more efficiency at higher temperatures. Monocrystalline solar panels are also more durable compared to others. You should, however, be prepared to pay higher for high quality and efficient technology.
- Polycrystalline: Most homeowners choose these solar panels as they are less expensive and still highly efficient.
- Thin-film: These solar panels are lightweight and highly portable. The technology is not yet popular among homeowners as it is still under development. Most people use these solar panels for mobile homes, boats and camper vans. There is a possibility that this technology may be the cheapest option in the future.

Solar Battery Storage Solutions
No matter how good your solar panel installation is, you cannot get maximum efficiency if you’re not incorporating solar battery storage.
You need solar battery storage for storing the excess and unused energy from your solar panels. Solar panels only generate electricity during the day, but we still need electricity at night. Without the batteries, your solar system will only be beneficial during the day, plus all the energy that is not in use will be lost, back to the grid.
On January 1st 2020, the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) was launched in the UK.
All Generators (you) who wish to receive payment for the electricity which they export back to the National Grid will need to apply to a SEG Licensee (an electricity supplier which offers a SEG tariff).
SEG Licensees must offer a SEG tariff to all eligible Generators.
Each SEG Licensee will have details of their specific application process on their website. Details of SEG payments (including amount due and contract length) will be determined by your chosen SEG Licensee. Any SEG tariff offered must always remain above zero. Generators are also entitled to payments based upon actual meter readings, even if some suppliers offer deals with alternative payment models.
Please note that you can apply for a SEG tariff with any SEG Licensee – your SEG Licensee does not need to be the same company as your current energy supplier. You can choose to use separate companies for your SEG payments, electricity supply, and your gas supply if you wish.
As of February 2022 the SEG payments were from 0.5p per kWh to 7.5p per kWh. depending on your Licensee.
Let’s look at some scenarios here regarding your (the generator’s) use of electricity: if the household is out of the house for most of the day and things like the washing machine, dishwasher and any other “heavy users” are not programmed to come on during daylight hours, then the excess power that you are generating is being fed into the grid. Depending on your utility company (Licensee) you’ll be paid their SEG rate.
Solar Storage Batteries In London
Were the excess power that your system generates when the house is empty or just not being used – being stored in your solar storage battery for later use, that would save you buying electricity from your supplier at “ballpark” 45p per kWh at the heaviest time for use of electricity for most households.
We invite you to contact us for a free feasibility study to ascertain the correct solar battery storage size for your requirements. It’s worth noting that a solar storage battery installed with solar panels is rated at 5% VAT. If the storage battery is fitted retrospectively, it’s rated at 20%! Click here for more information.
Solar batteries’ capacity may drop slightly over time, but the return on your investment is worth it if you have high-quality batteries. They will give you a longer lifecycle. Below are some of the solar batteries you can use for your solar systems.
- Lead-acid Batteries: Lead-acid batteries are more affordable compared to other types like Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are further classified as flooded or sealed solar batteries. The flooded lead-acid batteries require more maintenance, compared to the sealed solar batteries, but they have a longer lifespan. A flooded lead-acid battery can last for 5 to 7 years, and a sealed one, 3 to 5 years.
- Lithium-ion Batteries: Most homeowners prefer these batteries because they are more compact and have more capacity. Unlike Lead-acid batteries that last for five years, Lithium-ion batteries from reputable manufacturers last for a minimum of 10 years. You will pay a little more for this type of battery, but you will get a better return on your investment in the long run.

Your eddi power diverter will include a grid current sensor, aka a CT Clamp (Current Transformer), which monitors your power generation and diverts the excess to your heating devices or solar storage battery. The eddi logs all energy saving data to enable ongoing savings by optimising usage.
The Worlds First Solar EV Charger
This future proof, intelligent electric car charging is conceived, evolved, and manufactured in-house right here in the UK.
A solar EV charger works by allowing you to use excess solar to power up your car. Generating solar energy requires solar panels (PV) to be fitted to your home or place of work, but the energy generated through the solar panels is totally free, essentially giving you free miles!
Light energy produced by the sun is called a photon. It is the most basic, fundamental particle of all light. It is these photons in natural daylight that are converted by solar panel cells to produce electricity. This small bundle of electromagnetic energy is constantly in motion. Simply put, a solar panel works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to bounce into electrons setting them free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity.
With the cost of grid electricity rising every year, London homeowners are discovering that incorporating solar energy into their home will always be a good investment. Apart from saving on energy costs, solar energy also comes with the benefit of helping towards a cleaner environment (much needed in London) and much more. We understand all these benefits of transitioning to solar energy, and that is why we remain committed to ensuring that we provide the best service for all the above solar energy solutions.
