Why Choose Solar in 2020?
Every day the sun provides far more clean energy than we need to power everything on our planet. Solar power – coupled with excellent battery storage – is key to our carbon-neutral future.
Installation prices have dropped dramatically over recent years (100 times cheaper now than in the 1970s), whilst PV panel efficiency has increased. Installing solar PV is one of the best ways homeowners can save money each month. Fossil fuels are finite (not to mention their environmental cost) and so markets are volative. With solar PV you can take advantage of the sun’s free energy and protect yourself from energy price hikes. SunPower has more information about why investing in solar is a no-brainer. TLGEC will only install solar PV if it is right for your property, we will ensure you get the highest quality products for the best possible price.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) will come into force from January 1 2020. Put simply, this will mean that major energy providers will be required to pay an export tariff to solar PV homeowners for the energy they put back into the grid. Find out more about the SEG from Which? recommended Octopus here.
With no moving parts a solar system needs very little maintenance. SunPower panels even come with an industry-leading 25 year warranty. They will continue to produce free, clean energy for many years after your original investment has paid off. Your home may also increase in value, as more people look to reduce their carbon footprint.
Secure energy source
With solar PV you are no longer at the mercy of the energy companies’ price hikes. With the addition of battery storage such as Tesla Powerwall you can use clean solar energy round-the-clock and protect your home or business from the inconvenience of powercuts.
If you do need power from the grid there are now agile tariffs enabling battery storage owners to draw down power when it’s at its cheapest rate for use at their convenience.
We all now understand the necessity to make changes in order to stem the climate crisis. Solar PV has the capacity to fullfil all our energy needs. There are no harmful Co2 emissions created when solar power is produced. It’s one of the top ways to reduce your carbon footprint. By installing solar PV to your home you become a mini clean energy power plant and may be able to take advantage of the Smart Export Guarantee.
