Solar Power in Bristol

Why Solar?

With a surge in electricity prices currently underway (and not looking likely to stop), the ever growing need to power all todays modern electrical gadgets and devices, plus the desire to save the planet’s natural resources and go green, Solar Power is one of the cleanest and (with the new government incentive) one of the cheapest ways to generate most, if not all, of your electricity needs.

 

How does Solar PV work?

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) sytems generate high voltage DC power which is then fed through an inverter to transform it into grid-compatible 230V AC power; this in turn feeds into your distrubution board.

During the day solar power feeds any power requirements of the building with any shortfall being draw in from the national grid.

If the PV system is producing more power then the building is using then the excess electricity generated is fed back into the grid. At night when there is no solar power being produced, electricity is drawn from the grid as standard.

 

What is the Feed in Tariff (FIT)

Feed in tariffs are the payments to ordinary energy users for the renewable energy the produce. The scheme rewards people for creating their own green electricity. The tariffs were introduced by the government to help increase the level of renewable energy in the UK towards our legally binding target or 15% of total energy from renewable sources by 2020.

The tariffs give three financial benefits:

  • A payment for all the electricity you produce, even if you use it yourself.
  • Additional bonus payments for electricity you export to the grid.
  • A reduction on your standard electricity bill from using energy you produce yourself.
