Solar panel Installers Wales
If you live in Wales and have a roof you can generate cheap, green electricity directly from sunlight..
Even on a cloudy day!
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells and even work on a cloudy day as they don’t need direct sunlight to function properly.
Any daylight is enough to convert the light into electricity which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
Cut your electricity bills & get paid for the electricity you generate.
Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid the initial outlay for the installation, your electricity costs will be reduced and you could even start earning pounds thanks to the government’s Feed-in Tariff that will pay you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it.
If your system is producing more electricity than you need, you can sell the surplus back to the grid through the Feed-in Tariff scheme.
Cut your Co2.
Solar electricity is renewable energy and doesn’t release any carbon dioxide into the atmosphere unlike ‘dirty’ forms of power generation such as ‘coal, gas or oil,’
A typical home solar PV system could save over a tonne of carbon dioxide per year – that’s more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.
How do solar panels (PV) cells work?
PV cells are made from layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers.
The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced (modern cells still work well on dull days!). Cells are joined together to make panels which are mounted on the roof of a building such as your home.
The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp).
That’s the rate at which it creates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer.
PV cells come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Most PV systems are made up of panels that fit on top of an existing roof, but you can also fit solar tiles.
The difference between 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 cost more than an equivalent panel system.
Solar tile systems are not normally as cost-effective as panel systems, and are usually only considered where panels are not considered to be the best option for aesthetic or planning reasons.

Cost, savings and maintenance (England, Scotland and Wales).
A 4kWp system can generate around 3,800 kilowatt hours of electricity a year in the south of England or Wales.
This is typically equivalent to an average household’s electricity needs saving almost two tons of carbon dioxide every year.
The average domestic solar PV system is 4kWp and costs £5,000 – 8,000 (including VAT at 5 per cent).
If your system is eligible for the Feed-in Tariff scheme, you could generate savings and receive payments of £610 – £740 a year depending on your location if you register before July 2015 (based on a 4kWp solar PV system eligible for a generation tariff of 13.39p/kWh).
You will get paid for both the electricity you generate and use, and what you don’t use and export to the grid.
Installation costs are affected by:
Size, more panels produce more electricity and provide bigger savings and potential to earn as well as being more cost effective.
Tiles cost more money as do panels built into a roof than a standard installation that mounts panels on top of a roof.
Solar PV is eligible for Feed-in Tariffs and you will earn a tariff for each kWh of electricity generated by your system. You will also receive another tariff for each kWh of electricity you export.
It will tell you how much you could expect to save in your first year as well as how much money you are likely to earn from having one of our Solar Panel systems installed.
Solar Panel Maintenance
Solar PV needs little maintenance – you’ll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don’t begin to overshadow them.
In the UK panels that are tilted at 15° or more have the additional benefit of being cleaned by rainfall to ensure optimal performance.
The panels should last 25 years or more, with little maintenance.
