The Power of the Sun

The amount of solar energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in one year it is about twice as much as will ever be obtained from the earth’s non-renewable resources of coal, oil, natural gas and mined uranium combined. Energy from the sun is plentiful, clean and free.

Solar is effective in the UK

Even in the relatively cold, damp and cloudy UK environment we receive enough energy KWH of energy per square metre of land area to make solar electric/photovoltaic systems a reliable and pollution free producer of electricity for your home or business. Although the amount of energy generated by a solar PV system will vary depending on the location within the UK, the differences are not substantial and solar electricity is still worthwhile throughout the UK. You don’t need direct sunlight for solar PV panels to work, they will still produce electricity on cloudy days.

Can I have Solar PV?

Solar PV is suitable for almost all UK homes, farms, businesses and organisations. All you need is an area of land or rooftop area that is South, South West or South East facing without any shaded areas, as a base from which to generate renewable electricity.
