Go Solar, Not Just A Summer Saver
As we fast move towards summer, the extended daylight hours will come as a relief to those who have been hit hardest by their energy bills over the past few months as it enables you to reduce your reliance on artificial light.
Artificial electricity use can be slashed further if you invest in solar panels for your home as they utilise and transform sunlight into useable electricity, so will potentially cut your energy bill costs in half.
Not just that, you can even make tax free income from the panels via the Government’s Feed-in-Tariff scheme which pays you for generating your own electricity. You also get paid for any surplus electricity produced and exported back to the National Grid.
They really come into their own during the summer months, but it’s important to point out that they will still save you considerable amount of money throughout the rest of the year.
There is a common misconception about solar panels that we wish to dispel. Contrary to popular belief, solar panels do not require cloud-free conditions to work as they will operate effectively in gloomy, overcast conditions. It is only when darkness falls that you will have to revert back to the conventional electricity provided to your home by your standard supplier.
The presence of solar panels could make you home a more attractive proposition to buyers should you ever decide to sell due to the ever increasing cost of traditional electricity and they are extremely environmentally-friendly in comparison to the burning of fossil fuels which releases harmful greenhouse gases.
Fitted by our sister company Green Yorkshire Solar, solar panels can be fixed onto virtually any style of roof and not just at homes.
