Generate low-cost, green electricity from sunlight - Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun's energy using photovoltaic cells. Unlike conventional solar panels these cells don't need direct sunlight to work, on a cloudy day they can still generate some electricity. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.


 Solar electricity – the benefits 

  • Looking to cut your lower your electricity bills?  Sunlight is free, once the initial installation is paid your electricity costs will be greatly reduced.
  • Looking to generate some extra money? The government’s Feed-In Tariffs pay you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it. If your system is generating more electricity than you need, or when you can't use it, you can sell the surplus back to the grid.
  • Looking to cut your carbon footprint? Solar electricity is green, renewable energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide] or other pollutants.

 Solar tiles and slates

Solar tiles are designed to be used in place of ordinary roof tiles. A system made up of solar tiles will typically cost around twice as much as an equivalent panel system, although you will save the money you would have spent on roof tiles or slates. Solar tile systems are not normally as cost-effective as panel systems, and are usually only considered where panels are not considered appropriate for aesthetic or planning reasons.

 

Costs, savings and maintenance

  • The more electricity the system can generate, the more it costs but the more it could save.

  • Larger systems are usually more cost-effective than smaller systems (up to 4kWp). A 4kWp system can generate around 3,700 kilowatt hours of electricity a year – roughly equivalent to a typical household's electricity needs. It will save nearly two tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.

  • PV panels are all around the same price per kWp, but PV tiles cost much more than a typical system made up of panels.

  • Panels built into a roof are more expensive than those that sit on top.

  • Solar PV needs little maintenance – all you need to do is keep the panels clean and make sure there are no trees that overshadow them. Panels that are tilted at 15° or more have the additional benefit of being cleaned by rainfall to ensure optimal performance. Dirt and Debris is more likely to gather on and around ground mounted panels and should be removed with warm water. We at Dl roofing will provide advice on keeping you panels clean and provide a roof panel solar panel cleaning service if necessary.
