Considering Going Solar? Here’s Why It’s a Good Move for Your Home or Business

 If you’ve ever pondered the benefits of PV solar, it’s time to wonder no more. Here at JLM Electrical, we’re bringing you the benefits of this ever-popular source of renewable energy to give you all the answers to your questions in one handy blog.

Working with Hudson Solar, our fully-qualified installers offer the whole package in terms of installation. With over 25 years’ experience and knowledge in traditional roofing, our team can give you all the advice you need.

Are you building a brand new property? Let us take charge of the complete installation of your roof, too. We know everything there is to know about the structure of roofs and you can be sure of a fantastic service, every time.

Allowing you to generate electricity from daylight, solar panels can be installed either by connection to the grid, or ‘off-grid’, simply by charging battery banks. A real investment for any home or business owner, solar PV panels offer a guaranteed return after 20 years. But that’s not all; choose solar PV and you’ll reduce your reliance on fossil fuels. Making the change to renewable energy like this will save half a tonne of Co2 every year for the 30-35- year-lifespan of the system.

Supplying the latest mono and multi-cell modules, we buy our PV systems from the world’s largest manufacturers to ensure you’re getting only the best from this new source of energy. We’ll also design your PV installation to allow you to use any of the free electricity you generate before you use the National grid. The surplus energy then goes back into the grid, where it can be used by the public. Meanwhile, you will automatically pick up the grid’s shortfall without any disruption.

While PV solar panels do come with something of a sizeable initial cost, the eventual rewards are great. They’ll cut your electricity bills, which means once you’ve paid for the installation you’re good to enjoy reduced electricity costs from there on. The UK government’s Feed-in Tariff scheme means you’ll be paid for the electricity you generate, too, even if you use it.

You’ll cut your carbon footprint as well. There’s no harmful carbon dioxide released with PV solar panels, so you can rest assured you’re doing your bit for the environment by making the decision to go solar.

To give you an idea of the money you’ll save, a 4kWp system can generate around 3,800 kilowatt hours of electricity a year in the south of England. That’s equivalent to a typical household’s electricity needs, while a 4kWp system in Scotland can generate about 3,200 kilowatt hours of electricity over 12 months. Intrigued? We thought you might be. Discover how you can save a fortune too by getting in touch with our dedicated team here at JLM Electrical.
