Considering Solar PV Installations?

Friday, June 29th, 2012

The problem of providing our planet with energy in the long-term is a well publicised one, with rising oil prices and the finite amount available to us making the issue of finding a viable renewable alternative more pressing. At Allied Electrical we can install solar PV in Bristol for domestic as well as commercial properties that has proven to be an effective and reliable source of energy for homes and businesses up and down the UK.

We use electricity throughout our daily lives, from our kitchens to our bathrooms Bristol, and our reliance on power isn’t going to diminish. So if you’ve been considering investing in solar panels but you’re still unsure of their benefits, read on.

What is Solar PV?

If you’re a bit confused by the phrase ‘Solar PV’ then don’t worry – it is essentially just another name for solar panels. A solar PV (photovoltaic) system uses these panels to convert solar energy into DC electricity which is then fed through an inverter which turns it into usable AC electricity. Alternatively, you can feed this electricity back into the national electricity grid – and this is where you can make some money.

Save and Make Money with Solar PV

If you’ve been considering installing solar panels for your property you will probably already know about the financial savings on your electricity bills that are to be made. A well-designed solar PV system could potentially produce around half of the total electricity you’d need to power your household.

However, there are more financial benefits to take advantage of. Firstly, any unused electricity that you generate can be exported back into the grid which your energy supplier will pay for. Secondly, there are various Feed in Tariffs available from energy suppliers which will pay you for every kW/h of energy you generate – whether you use it or not. Give us a call or complete our online contact form if you have any questions regarding ways you can make money with solar PV.

Taking these factors into account, investing in solar PV really does make sense. As MCS approved installers, here at Allied Electrical we can provide you excellent solar PV systems that will last a lifetime, and protect you from the volatile nature of the fossil fuel market.

The Impact and Potential Returns of Installing Solar Panels Bristol

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Some property owners may still be sceptical about having solar panels Bristol installed on their roof, although the positive impact they will have on your life and the potential returns you can gain should cancel out any scepticism – especially when being installed by our highly skilled and experienced team here at Allied Electrical.

Much like light bulbs and other energy saving additions, solar panels are right at the forefront of ‘green’ technology and their healthy impact on the environment that can save up to 1 tonne of CO2 per year, translates to a much healthier wallet and energy bills. This makes solar panels a sound and smart investment for anyone, not only the environmentally conscious.

The amount you can save of course varies on a number of factors, but our specially designed solar panels could potentially supply around 50% of your total electrical requirements, effectively cutting your monthly bills in half and rapidly paying the price of installation off. This staggering energy saving ability makes choosing a solar panel installation more important this year as it ever has been, with energy bills increasing around 10% or more per annum and recent reports showing that many homeowners decided to stay cold in the final months of 2011 to opt out of paying bills they just couldn’t afford. Your solar panels will have a positive impact all year round.

Aside from the energy saving impact and the returns gained, energy companies are also offering a very generous incentive for those with solar panels: the ‘Feed in Tariff’. This only applies to property owners who have had their solar panels installed by an MCS approved installer (such as ourselves here at Allied Electrical) and works by your electricity company actually paying YOU for each kiloWatt/hour of energy you generate.

The positive impact and potential returns make solar panels Bristol a choice every modern property owner should be considering, so contact us today to find out more and for a detailed site survey to decide whether they are truly for you.
