How does a PV system work?
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels simply convert light into electricity which is fed seamlessly into the electricity network of your property. You earn guaranteed income (tax-free for domestic properties) for 20 years on all the electricity you produce. You also save on your bills as the property always uses your own ‘free’ PV electricity before drawing it from your power supplier, and any excess is automatically exported and sold on your behalf. There are no emissions or waste and no controls to manage. A Solar PV system installed by Redmile Energy is simple and uncomplicated to own and generates power and income for decades.
How much electricity and income does PV generate?
Typically a 4kwp (14 panel) system in our region can generate in excess of 3,750kwh of electricity a year. Annual earnings on such a system would be approx:
- £147.38 in tax-free FIT income (Property with an EPC of D or above)
- £337.50 in savings on your bill through use of your own free electricity
- £94.31 in export income from power sold to the grid
- £579.19 in total savings per year
- £4999.00 inc VAT, fully fitted from price for a typical system
What is involved in the installation?
PV arrays are ideal for most roofs. A typical domestic installation would take between 1 – 2 days to complete and depending on safe access to the specified location may require the use of temporary scaffolding. For typical roof mounted systems rigid brackets are fixed into place under the roof tiles directly onto the rafters, then aluminium rails are secured to these brackets on which the panels are securely clamped. The inverter and other electrical components are wired into place and connected to the panels. The electrical supply to the property will only need to be interrupted once, briefly, when all the components are in place in order to make the final connection. Installation requirements do vary depending on specific site factors and array sizes. In most cases fixing solar panels to your roof is considered ‘permitted development’ under planning law with no need to apply for planning permission (see FAQs for more info).
