Solar panels - What are they?
Solar technologies convert sunlight into electrical energy, this could be either through photovoltaic which are known as PV panels or through mirrors that concentrate solar radiation. This energy can be used to generate electricity or be stored in batteries or thermal storage.
What is SEG solar?
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) replaces the FiT scheme which stands for Feed- in- Tariff. (SEG) will pay customers for renewable electricity that they have generated and then it’s put into the grid.
Powering your home with solar energy has quickly become the fastest growing renewable energy solution around the world. Having solar panels on your roof can hep you become more independent from the National Grid and reduce your homes impact on the environment giving you a much better control over how and when your energy is used.
Batteries and thermal storage
A battery offers greater self-sustainability as you are not solely reliant on the Grid. Rather than exporting back to the grid you can just store up the solar power you generate throughout the day to use during the evening or whenever you want!
Did you know..? Typically a 12 panel solar system and a 5.2kW battery could see savings of up to £809 a year on your home's electricity bill.
