SAVE ENERGY AT HOME
Why add solar panels to my home?
Solar panels capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity that you can use in your home, and can even work on cloudy days. They could help you to reduce your electricity bills and add to the value of your home, if you’re looking to sell.
- After the cost of installation is paid, the electricity generated from solar panels is free, which could help you reduce the cost of your electricity bill.
- If you generate more electricity than you need, you could also sell this back to the National Grid.
- A South facing, unshaded roof will help maximise the electricity generated, and the potential savings on your electricity bills.
- Solar electricity is renewable, making it not only good for your pocket but the planet too. A typical home with solar panels could reduce their emissions by one tonne of carbon per year (Energy Saving Trust, May 2022 ).
