The Advantages of Solar Electricity
Reduce your carbon footprint: solar power energy is a green, and renewable energy with no pollutants and is one of the most effective solutions in reducing the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere. A typical home photovoltaic (PV) system could save around one tonne of CO2 per year, which is around 25 tonnes over its lifetime.
Reduce electricity bills: once you have purchased and installed your solar panels there are no further costs except for minimal maintenance. The electricity generated is then free and the Photovoltaic (PV) system can produce up to 40% of your household electrical consumption in a year. Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your electricity costs will be greatly reduced. A typical home PV system can produce around 40% of the electricity a household uses in a year.
Create additional income: sell your surplus electricity back to the national grid.
Store electricity for when the sun is not shining: Rather then sell your excess supply to the national grid you can choose to store your excess electricity in batteries to use when you need it.

Income Generation and Cost Savings of a Photovoltaic (PV) System
A 2.2 kWp system can generate 40% of a household's yearly electricity needs. As part of the Feed In Tariff (FiT) it is estimated that you could earn around £900 per year from savings and income generated from the Feed in Tariff ( FiT).

Maintenance is minimal but you should ensure that your solar panels are kept clean and free from anything that will obscure the sun light such as shadows created by growing trees.
