Introduction to the advantages of solar energy

Solar Energy has many advantages and disadvantages so it is a good idea to weigh up and compare both sides in order to see if it's the right power to use for your business or household.

An Over View of Solar Electricity Grants

Due to the increased understanding of how hazardous non-renewable energy sources are to the environment, individuals, communities and businesses alike are being encouraged to use other sources such as solar electricity. Grants have been put in place to promote the change from non-renewable to renewable energy systems.

Grants are obtainable through the Government, energy suppliers and local authorities, however mainstream grant funding was abolished in 2010 to be replaced by a new scheme named 'Feed in Tariffs.'

Why solar panels?

Renewable energy and energy efficiency are high on the agenda with today's rising fossil fuel prices. Aside from the feel-good factor of knowing that one's efforts are saving the planet, what are the benefits of getting solar energy up and running?

Feed in Tariff

The government Department of Energy and Climate Change or DECC introduced the Feed in Tariff for renewable energy in April 2010 to pay each household for every kilowatt of solar electricity generated by solar panel systems. These payments will be made to those investing in solar energy systems whether the energy generated is used by the household or business or exported to the national grid. Energy exported to the national grid will be paid for at an even greater rate than energy used by the household or business.

Renewable Energy

The UK government has proven its commitment to climate change by planning the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (RHI) which is set to provide grants and cash payments to households and businesses prepared to invest in renewable heat systems. The renewable heat incentive is set to be introduced in April 2011 and is thought by many to be part of the answer to the problem of global warming. By incentivizing households and businesses financially, the planned switch to renewable methods of heat generation will be easier to achieve.

Explaining Solar Electricity

Solar electricity is generated through a system such as solar panels which absorb energy from the rays of the sun and convert them into electricity which can be used to power the home or a business. Solar power can be generated without direct sunlight meaning that all hours of daylight can convert the sun's energy into electricity.

Benefits of using Solar Electricity

Solar electricity or solar power is considered to be a green energy source and so has a direct positive effect on the environment.

With renewable energy and saving the planet so high on the agenda, a number of green companies are offering incentives for those who can generate their own electricity and sell it on. For those considering installing solar (photovoltaic) panels this can mean discounts on energy prices.

What are they?

Photovoltaic roof tiles work on the same principle as solar panels. However they have a major advantage over solar panels and that is that they are made the same size as large format roof tiles. This allows them to either be built into the roof on a new build or into an existing roof when it requires a repair or replacement.
