Reducing your energy bills with solar

Installing solar panels can transform how you power your home and your energy bills. Solar panel systems allow you to generate electricity during daylight hours and use this to power your home. When combined with a solar battery, you can store energy for later use.

Solar panels and battery storage help reduce your reliance on your electricity provider, plus you can also sell any surplus electricity your solar panels generate in return for payments under Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme.

If you install solar panels and a battery, what sort of bill savings can you expect? Energy Saving Trust estimates suggest that a typical household (at home for the majority of the day) could potentially generate an annual saving/income up to £520 through a combination of solar use and selling excess electricity generated under SEG.

Helping you reduce your carbon emissions

As solar panel installers in Durham, we are helping households through solar energy systems that generate renewable energy and minimise their environmental impact. Correctly installed solar PV systems generate ongoing green energy which reduces the carbon footprint of households for years to come.

So what are the environmental benefits of solar panel installation when it comes to carbon savings? The Energy Saving Trust estimates that a typical home solar PV system could save households around 1 tonne of carbon per year, and since they rely on the National Grid far less, it’s a real win when it comes to carbon reductions.

Ready to make the investment in solar?

Solar panels are a great investment to make in County Durham, despite what people may previously have thought about their ability to generate electricity under grey skies. Most modern solar photovoltaic panels are still able to generate electricity on cloudy days – they do not require direct sunlight and do not necessarily have to be south-facing roofs.

Solar panels are pretty versatile and can usually be installed on a pitched or even a flat roof, and sometimes ground-mounted solar panels may be more appropriate if the available roof space is insufficient or not suitable for purpose. While you may have considered solar panels previously, but have been put off by the cost, solar panels are not as expensive as they once were.

With energy bills a cause of concern for many households and businesses in Durham, there has probably never been a more opportune time to embrace solar technology. We can assess your home or business’ suitability for a solar PV system and provide you with a free no obligation quote, enabling you to weigh up whether solar is right for you.

Solar panels in Durham FAQs

How many solar panels will I need?

The number of solar panels you will need will depend on many different factors including your current energy usage, the level of sunlight in your area, the size and orientation of your solar panels, and the efficiency levels of your solar panels. If your energy demand is excessively high then you may need more solar panels (if your roof can accommodate them) and potentially multiple solar batteries.

In most situations, planning permission is not usually required for solar panels on a standard roof space as they would usually be considered Permitted Development. The situation is somewhat different if the property is in a conservation area or the solar panels are intended for a Listed Building, in which planning approval will usually be required from the local authority.

Yes, most solar panels come with lengthy warranties usually ranging from 10 to 20 years. The warranty will vary from one manufacturer to another. Most solar panels are expected to last around 20-25 years, though some that are properly maintained could last even longer.
