ABOUT SOLAR

Why Install Solar Panels?

Solar panels can make you money while reducing your utility bills, and additionally providing a free source of energy that reduces your carbon footprint.

Save the earth 1,800 tonnes of carbon into the environment, while only investing as little as 4,000 into a Solar PV system and installation. Additionally, it provides a tax free ROI reaching approximately 12%. That is a huge return on investment when compared with the typical interest earned even on savings accounts these days.

Likewise, investing in a solar PV system protects you against future utility cost increases. It is a true win-win scenario for your household.

Sell Your Energy with Solar Panels

The Feed-In Tariff, or FIT, scheme pays you back for the actual energy your solar panels produce. There is no subtracting the amount you consume, because you are paid for all of it no matter how much of it you use. That is a sweet deal.

When there is too little sun, such as at nighttime, then you insetad draw energy from the electic grid. Move all dryer and washer usage to the daylight hours, if you can, and it maximises return and efficiency of your solar system.

Why Solar PV Pays

Installation of a solar power system on your home creates multiple benefits, such as lowering utility bills, while generating income from the government payments, while reducing your carbon footprint.

Make Cheaper Installations A Reality

Increasing demand for solar panel systems, combined with more efficient technology has dramatically dropped the price for this product and installation by at least 50 percent. You can now get a 4kw-system, which includes its installation onto your home for as little as 3,950.

A Low Maintenance Option Exists

Solar systems are very low maintenance, and the solar panels have a long life expectancy. You might need to replace an inverter in 10 years, so be aware.

What Can Solar Thermal Do For Me?

Water heaters that use the freely available heat from the sun to warm water in the house is called a solar thermal system. The conventional boiler or immersion provides heat in absence of the solar thermal energy. There is a warm and pre-heated water source stored in a separate hot water cylinder.

The domestic RHI gives homeowners who install green technologies in their houses the ability to claim payments from the government. Homeowners who install solar thermal are eligible to claim the RHI. Meanwhile, the homeowners who install Solar PV systems are free to claim the FIT.

It Works Every Day Of The Year

During the months when there is less direct solar thermal energy available to heat a solar water heater, the bills to heat will be higher, as you will be relying more on the conventional boiler or immersion products for hot water production.

Reduce Utility Bills

A solar thermal system works like a traditional heater in that it pre-heats the water before it enters the main heating system. It translates into using less energy for heating water, which significantly reduces energy bills. It also reduces your home’s carbon footprint.

Claim The Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive, or RHI, is the government program that rewards people who install earth-friendly energy technologies. The typical household usually receives payments of 300 or more per year when they have installed a sun-heating system.

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a mark of quality and demonstrates compliance to industry standards that companies strive to meet. It highlights to consumers that companies are able to consistently install or manufacture to the highest quality every time.
We only allow MCS accredited installers on to our network who carry all of the necessary qualifications, and insurances. If you wish to claim the feed-in-tariff, the company who carries out your installation must be approved by MCS.

QUOTES PROVIDED BY APPROVED INSTALLERS

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme, or MCS, is a symbol of quality and a compliance with the industry standards that companies should be striving to meet. It is a sign to consumers the companies that consistently install or manufacture at the highest quality standards time and again.

Only MCS-accredited installers are included and allowed in our network of providers. They must all carry the necessary qualifications, and insurance. To qualify for the feed-in-tariff, your installer must be MCS-approved. That demonstrates how important proper installation of high-quality solar panels is.

Our Customers

“I was interested in this technology and the fact that I would recover some capital from my investment thanks to the Feed-In-Tariff. But the initial cost was a factor for us so therefore we were impressed with both the quotation, and product knowledge, provided by Solar Panel Glasgow. Solar Panel Glasgow were excellent. I would recommend them to anyone. They kept their promises on delivery, installation and after-sales and were clean and tidy during the work at our house. In fact, they finished a half-day early.”
