Havering

The London Borough of Havering is a London borough in East London, England and forms part of Outer London. The London Borough of Havering was created in 1965 by the combined former area of the Municipal Borough of Romford and Hornchurch Urban District which had been moved to Greater London from Essex by the London Government Act 1963. The name Havering is a reference towards the Royal Liberty of Havering which occupied the area for several centuries. The local authority is Havering London Borough Council.

The main town in Havering is Romford and the other main communities are Hornchurch, Upminster and Rainham. Havering is bordered to the south by the London Borough of Bexley by the River Thames, to the west by the London Borough of Redbridge and also the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and towards the north and east by Essex. The borough is primarily characterised by suburban development with big locations of protected open space. Havering covers a total area of 43.35 square miles. There is a high ratio of area per capita as big sections of Havering are parkland and 23 square miles (60 km2), which is more than half of the borough, is Metropolitan Green Belt protected land. Those locations of development are substantial but seldom intensive.

Romford's urban centre is a major metropolitan retail and night time entertainment centre and towards the south the borough extends in to the London Riverside redevelopment part of the Thames Gateway. Havering is served by the London Underground and there is an substantial network of London Bus routes.

FAQs

Do solar panels work in winter?

Yes – solar panels do work in winter. Contrary to popular belief, solar panels can still work under daylight, even if it's not hot. Of course, they won’t generate as much electricity as they would during the summer months, as the days are shorter, but they will still generate electricity during those daylight hours.

Once you know how solar panels work, it’s easy to understand why solar panels work in the winter. Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which are units usually made out of silicon. These cells contain electrons that create energy when light hits them. The cell can then convert this energy into usable electric current and into your system to be used around the home.

Although it might seem strange, solar PV cells can actually work better when it’s cold. Too much heat around the cell can cause it to be inefficient, due to the difference in energy between the energy from the sunlight and the electrons in the solar cell. During cold weather, the difference between them is higher, so more

The higher the energy difference between the two sets of energy sources, the more power that the cell can produce when it’s struck by light. Of course, the downside is that there are fewer daylight hours in the winter, so you’ll still see a drop in energy production – but at least you know that your solar panels are still working efficiently. The other thing to bear in mind is that obstructions like snow and lots of cloud cover will impact the amount of electricity your solar panels will produce. Luckily the UK doesn’t get too much heavy snow, so any snow that does settle on the panels will melt quickly. As for cloud cover, even on exceptionally cloudy days your panels will still generate some electricity – just not as much as they would on a clear day.

How much do solar panels cost?
The cost of solar panels has reduced significantly over the years. While a system may have cost you up to £20,000 in the early days, that’s not the case anymore. So how much do solar panels cost today? The cost of an average 4kW system on an average home will set you back between £4,500-6,500. But pair that with the savings on your electricity bills and payments that you can receive from the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), the net cost could be much less. The SEG is a payment from your energy supplier for any electricity that you don’t use and send back to the grid. Each energy supplier can set their own rate, but it must be above zero at all times. This replaces the Feed-in Tariff Scheme (FITs) which used to pay solar panel owners per kW of electricity they generated as well as that which they sent back to the grid. This was a much more lucrative scheme which saw homeowners earn back the cost of their system within a few years, but it ended in March 2019. Now, with the SEG and your savings on your electricity bills, you could save up to £330 a year – meaning you could break even within 14 years. Solar panel systems are likely to last up to 25 years, so they’re still well worth investing in. Combine that with the saving of 1.29 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year, and you’ve done your bit for the environment.
Is it best to get solar panels installed by a professional?
Yes. It will always be best to get solar panels installed by a professional because they have gone through lots of training and have all the relevant qualifications to install solar panels correctly. Whenever you’re dealing with electricity, if something goes wrong it could cause a fire or you could electrocute yourself, so it’s always worth leaving it to the professionals. The other thing to bear in mind is that it’s best to get solar panels installed by a professional, MCS-registered engineer so you’re eligible for Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) payments. The SEG is a government-backed scheme where your energy supplier pays you for each unit of electricity you send back to the grid. Each supplier can set their own rate, but it must be above zero at all times, even if wholesale electricity prices dip below zero. According to the Energy Saving Trust, if you’re at home all day and live in the South East, combine the savings on your electricity bills with your SEG payments and you could save up to £330 a year, meaning the system could pay for itself within 16 years. If you don’t use an MCS-registered company to install your solar panels, you won’t be able to claim the SEG. It’s also unlikely that you’d be able to claim payments for any other schemes that may become available in the future, so it’s always best to leave your solar panel installation to the professionals.
How do I connect solar panels to a battery?

If you want to connect solar panels to a battery, it’s likely that it’s because you want to make sure that you don’t waste any electricity when your solar panels are generating energy but you’re not around to use it. Batteries are particularly useful for homeowners that have solar panels but are out during daylight hours; with a solar battery system, your solar panels will feed the electricity they generate into the battery for you to use when you get home.

If you want to connect your solar panels to a battery, the best thing to do is to get in touch with an MCS-registered company who can talk you through your options. There are different size batteries and the size that’s suitable for you will depend on how much electricity you plan to store and how large your solar panel system is. Some of the top brands of battery storage system include Tesla, SunPower and SolarEdge. If you want to be able to take advantage of selling electricity back to the grid through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), it’s worth getting an MCS-registered company to install your battery for you, as you may not be eligible for payments if you connect your solar panels to a battery yourself.

You should also consider whether your solar panel system is a ‘storage ready’ solar system. Today, most systems will be, since battery storage is becoming much more common. This means that your solar panel system will have an inverter that can easily integrate a battery. If this is the case, you should be able to purchase the battery you want and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install it.

However, it’s worth bearing in mind that electricity is extremely dangerous when handled incorrectly. If something goes wrong, you could electrocute yourself or cause a fire. If your solar panels and battery cause a fire, it’s unlikely that your home insurance company would pay out if you connect the battery yourself. That's why it’s best to ask a reputable installer with all the correct qualifications to connect your solar panels to a battery for you.
