Solar panels are the most popular renewable energy system for homeowners because of their fantastic energy-saving and carbon-reducing benefits.
Photovoltaic (PV) panels are installed onto the roofs of properties, normally facing south or southwest to receive the most direct sunlight. However, they work perfectly well in overcast conditions too.
Solar panels are made from two layers of semiconducting material and when this comes into contact with sunlight, an electrical charge is created. This is converted into usable electricity for the home
Benefits of solar power
By installing solar panels you can benefit from:
A free source of electricity for more than 25 years. Solar PV installers often provide lengthy warranties and the technology is proven to last well over 25 years.
An escape from the rising prices of gas and electricity. Energy prices have been rising regularly in recent years, so by utilising renewables you’ll be saving even more – up to £220 a year.
Added value to your home. With the energy saving potential solar panels provide, the value of your property will increase and potential buyers will see the income earning opportunity as an attractive deal.
Low maintenance levels for the efficient running of the system. Solar panels for your home are often referred to as a fit and forget technology, and all you need to do is ensure trees don’t cast them into shadow.
Reduced carbon emissions. Carbon is responsible for the increased problems associated with global warming and solar panels help to reduce emissions.

Energy Performance of Houses
The below data illustrates the energy performance of homes in Uk. Energy ratings vary from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the very least efficient. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating factors heavily when trying to sell your house, as potential buyers will see how much they're probably going to be spending on their home heating bills. Property improvements including insulation assist to substantially improve a home's EPC rating.
