Why have solar panels?

Since the government introduced the feed in tariff (FIT) households  have been able to tap into a new guaranteed income stream which is tax-free and index linked.

The feed in tariff is paid for every kw of electricity that you generate regardless of whether you use it or not.  You will save money on your electricity bills for anything that you do use during daylight hours and then you can then sell whatever is left over back to the electricity company.

The feed in tariff and export tariffs are paid to you by the electricity companies, so for a change your energy company will owe you money…for the next 20 years.  Most systems will pay for themselves within 6-8 years.

Solar panels are easy to install, most systems can be installed in a day.  They are easy to maintain, so there is very little for you to do once you are up and running - just relax and enjoy the free electricity.

  •  Government guaranteed payments
  •  Index linked payments
  •  Reduce your carbon footprint
  •  Utilise other energy saving devices to save even more money

  •  Predictable generation - so you can see what you could generate

A great investment for your business

We are experienced in installing solar panels on business and agricultural buildings, from 4kW to 50kW and beyond.  We offer a full service, from a free quotation to DNO and planning applications, to the installation and commissioning.   

We will even assist your FIT application.  The Feed in Tariff is a government backed payment made on every kwh of electricity you generate.  As well as the Feed in Tariff, you can also sell your unused electricity back to your electricity provider via the Export Tariff.  All payments are index linked and guaranteed for 20 years.

We have commercial solar panel installations completed in Sheffield, South and North Yorkshire, Doncaster, Chesterfield and the surrounding areas.

We also work with a number of M & E contractors to install panels on new build or rennovated properties.

Just call us to arrange a visit or take a look at our solar case studies.

Maximise your on-site consumption of the free electricity generated by your solar panels by diverting anything you don’t immediately need into your immersion heater (or other circuits within your property such as electric under floor heating, electric heaters, infrared panels, storage heaters).

Immersion controllers are intelligent unit which constantly monitors the electricity being exported.  Once you have over 150w surplus electricity, the controller will automatically divert it to your nominated circuit, so you can have free hot water at the fraction of the cost of a solar thermal system. 

The controller will never divert more than the excess generation from your solar panels and will automatically reduce or switch off if you switch on an appliance in the house.  Once installed it can only save you money, especially if you are not at home during the day, when your solar panels are at peak generation.

Suitable for any size of solar PV installation, the immersion controllers are easy to install by a qualified electrician and once installed, you don’t have to do anything because it manages itself.  Payback is estimated at 3-4 years and you still get the 50% export tariff.   Your FIT payments will not be affected and it can even be used in properties where free solar panels have been installed!
