Solar PV and how they work...
Solar PV (Solar Photovoltaics) panels are made up of cells which convert solar radiation into electricity. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of semi-conducting materials, usually silicon, and when light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across its layers, causing electricity to flow. Modern solar panels produce electricity from daylight and do not require direct sunlight, although more electricity is produced on bright, sunny days. Enough sunlight actually falls onto the earth every hour to meet the world’s power demands for an entire year, so harnessing and using this free energy can help reduce our reliance on other sources of energy and be beneficial to the environment as well. By installing Solar PV panels you can produce free, green energy for your home or business.
About Feed-In Tariff (FIT)...
If you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable or low-carbon source such as solar PV, the UK Government's Feed-In Tariffs scheme (FITs) could mean that you get money from your energy supplier.
You can be paid for the electricity you generate, even if you use it yourself, and for any surplus electricity you export to the grid. And of course you'll also save money on your electricity bill, because you'll be using your own electricity.
You will benefit from FITs in following ways:
Generation tariff: You will be paid a set rate by your energy supplier for every single unit (or KWh) of electricity you generate via your installation. In the case of solar PV this is current paid at 14.38p per kWh (for systems up to 4kW.
Export tariff: On top of the Generation tariff, you will be paid a further set rate for every unit of electricity you don’t use that you export back to the grid known as the Export tariff. With the unit rate at 4.77p per kWh for the energy you feed back to the grid (around 50%).
Energy savings: By generating your own free energy, you will be saving on your electricity bill as you don’t need to buy as much from your energy supplier.
On average a well designed 4.0 kWp system could generate over £550-£700 a year under this scheme.
