The benefits of PV Solar
There is no doubting the facts that Solar generated power offers substantial financial benefits but your investment goes a lot further. Yes it will pay for itself, yes it will offer added value to your home and make the property more desirable should you decide to sell and yes it will provide clean energy saving benefits long after your 20 year Feed-in Tariff (FiT) expires. Currently, you can get a better rate of return by investing your savings into a PV system rather than putting it in a bank account or even an ISA.
But the benefits of solar energy extend far beyond the fiscal advantages. Solar helps benefit both you and the world environmentally and socially.
Solar PV systems can reduce or even completely remove the need to purchase electricity from your energy provider. Not only does this help to reduce our reliance on pollutant fossil fuels and is a big step towards reducing your carbon footprint and aiding the fight against climate change.
A solar PV system helps increase the value of your property, meaning you can command a higher price should you ever come to sell it. Figures on exactly how much value is added are dependent on what type and size system you install.
Solar PV systems are made from silicon, a derivative of sand which is widely available and a sustainable resource. It is a ‘fit and forget’ proposition; once you have installed it on your property there is nothing else you need to do. There are no moving parts to the system so the potential for a problem to occur is very small, and other than an occasional clean which should be taken care of by rainwater the only other thing necessary is the inspection and possible replacement of the electrical cabling every 20-25 years.
It’s an investment in sustainable energy that will offer a great return on investment plus real savings over a 20 Year period!
