Did you know the photovoltaic technology used in solar panels is used in space to generate free electricity. Photovoltaic cells work (it’s called the Photovoltaic effect and was discovered way back in 1887 by Heinrich Hertz) by converting daylight into electricity but this technology should not be confused with existing solar water heating systems, that are less efficient and requires direct sunshine, water pipes and storage tanks.
BlueBuild Energy can provide a system which saves money on your utility bills and will generate an index linked tax free income guaranteed for 20 years.
The electricity you generate you are free to use it in your house in whatever manner you choose. No further convertors, adaptors or rewiring of the house are necessary to use this electricity that you have generated – you simply go about your daily routine as you normally would. When the system is generating electricity, and you are using electricity at the same time, the system is set up to preferentially use the electricity from your PV system first, avoiding the unnecessary import of costly electricity from the grid while continuing to use all of what you are generating.
Any electricity that you generate, and subsequently use, is electricity you would otherwise have paid full rate for from your current electricity supplier at a rate of approximately 17p per kWh.
When a unit of energy is generated by your PV system, but it is not needed by the system owner, then that unit gets exported back to the NI electricity grid.
Once the PV system is installed, your home begins to earn money via this export.
By installing a PV system you are doing you part to lower your carbon footprint and help protect the planet.
How much your solar panels save you depends on how much electricity your system generates, and this depends on where you live in the UK.
Solar panels prices vary depending on the size of array you purchase and regional price variances apply – contact us for an individual quote. The costs for our solar panel systems are competitively priced.
