Reduce your energy bill

Solar PV panels absorb sunlight and generate electricity for use in your home, reducing the amount of electricity you need to buy from your supplier. You can even earn money for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity you generate through the Government’s Feed-in Tariff, even if you use it, and you’ll also get paid for any excess electricity generated, as it’s fed back to the National Grid. With the rise in energy costs last year by 11%, an expected increase by over 7% in October 2011, and more cost increases forecast, generating your own power puts you back in control of your bills.
