Why use Solar PV for your Home?
By generating your own electricity with solar panels, you can significantly reduce or even eliminate your monthly electricity bills. This can provide substantial long-term savings and help offset the initial cost of the solar panel installation.
Homes with solar panels are often valued higher than those without, as they offer a unique selling point that can attract potential buyers. Electricity prices can be volatile and unpredictable, making it difficult to budget for energy costs. By generating your own electricity with solar panels, you can protect against rising energy costs and provide more financial stability.
Green Electricity Installations can also help to lower your carbon footprint. Solar panels are a clean and renewable source of energy, meaning they don’t produce harmful greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. By using solar energy, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the environment.
Green Electrical Installations would welcome the opportunity to help you create a more sustainable home of the future.

Questions People Ask About Home Solar PV
What is the maximum watt output of solar panels?
The maximum output (Wattage) of solar panels has increased from an average solar panel being 180kWp to 190kWp. The average size of solar panels is between 330kWp and 360kWp, meaning you only need 12 solar panels to achieve a 4kW Solar array.
How long does it take to pay back the initial investment?
Depending on where you live, and your typical electric and energy usage, it can take anywhere from 4-6 years to 9-11 years to pay back the initial investment you have made – this does not include the added benefit of selling back your surplus energy. It’s worthwhile visiting the Energy Saving Trust Website and visit solar PV page to see how much you could save.
Can I heat my water with solar power?
Yes. Especially during spring and summer, a solar array can produce enough electricity to heat up the heat pump and hot water. However, during the colder months when there is less natural sunlight, it becomes increasingly difficult to heat the water.
How can I store my solar power?
Installing battery storage systems of at least 8kW allows you to get the most out of your energy during the colder months. Charge the batteries during the day from the Solar PV array to be used at other times during higher demand, outside peak generation or at night time. Green Electrical Installations sell a number of high-quality battery storage systems to suit budget and capacity.
