solar electricity is the process of using the sun's rays to generate electricity
Solar photovoltaic (PV) - can either replace or supplement your existing electricity supply. It is different from solar thermal, which uses the sun’s rays to heat water.
At home, the size of the system is unlikely to be large enough to generate electricity for all your needs, especially at night when there is no light, which means that you’ll still be connected to the grid.
A solar electric system consists of solar panels (to create electricity) and an inverter (to convert that electricity into a form which can be used at home). The panels can be fitted onto your roof or placed in any other unshaded area.
What’s so great about solar electric?
- Generates free electricity to power your appliances
- Saves you money - a typical domestic system provides c. 50% of your electricity needs
- Makes you money - the ‘Clean Energy Cashback’ scheme will pay you for every unit of solar electricity you create over the next 25 years (click here for more info)
- Protects you against rising energy bills
- Gives you greater energy independence
- Can increase the value of your home
- Easy to install
- Requires little maintenance - generally limited to hosing / dusting them every year
Does it work in the UK?
Absolutely! In the UK we receive approximately 1000 kWh of solar energy per m2 each year – this is the same as parts of Germany, France and Argentina. In fact, given the huge success of solar panels in Germany, it is clear that the technology works very well in our part of the world.
REFER A FRIEND SCHEME
Are you satisfied with your greentomatoenergy installation? Do you have friends or family who would also benefit from Solar PV?
We have now introduced the greentomatoenergy “Refer a Friend” scheme.
If you have friends or family who might be interested in fitting a Solar PV system to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint. Then why not refer them to us and we will give you a £250 cash payment once your friend or family member installs with us.
There is no limit to how many friends or family members you can recommend!
Simply contact us on 020 8380 8908 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
