Solar panels fit on the roof of your house and use energy from the sun to turn it into electricity to power your home. You can cut your electricity bill and earn money from the government by generating your own electricity.
A 1kW solar panel system is the smallest you can get. If you only have a small amount of roof space, this system is a good option for you. You’ll need around 8m2 of roof space to have this size system, whereas a 2kW system will need approximately 14m2.Read more
A 2kW solar panel system needs around 14m2 of roof space. It will cost more than a 1kW system, but you could generate considerably more electricity and therefore earn more money. Typically, you’ll generate around 1700kWh of electricity per year. This is more than enough to power an average kitchen for a whole year.Read more
A 3kW solar panel system will generate approximately 2,550kWh every year. This is nearly enough to power an average terrace house for a full year. You’ll need around 21m2 of roof space for this size system, so it is more suited to larger properties.Read more
