Benefits of Solar PV Panels

Solar panels generate clean, green energy from sunlight using photovoltaic (PV) cells. Once installed, they require little maintenance while buildings can continue to reap the maximum benefits of solar panels for years. This makes solar PV systems a good investment for homeowners and businesses. The Infographic highlights the benefits and savings of installing solar panels.

There are several ways in which you could benefit from solar PV installation. You can get paid for electricity generated from PV panels through the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) scheme of the UK government, save on electricity bills and sell the extra electricity generated back to the grid. Since solar energy is renewable, so buildings using solar panels can reduce their carbon footprint. For instance, a 4kWp system installed in a house in the south of England can generate enough electricity to meet the household’s electricity needs in a year. In this way, approximately two tonnes of carbon dioxide can be saved every year. See the below infographic to know what are the costs and savings of installing solar panels in different cities of the UK.
