The installation of solar panels has increased dramatically in the United Kingdom over the past few years for a few reasons. Firstly the arrival of photovoltaics, otherwise known as solar PV, meant that we were no longer reliant on direct sunlight because solar PV continues to generate with low and diffused light The result is a far higher generation of electricity than previous solar panel types.
The introduction of the Feed in Tariff scheme has been a huge contributing factor for the increase in solar PV installations. For the first time ever in the UK owners of solar panels were able to get paid for all the solar electricity they generated based on a meter reading.
For more information on the returns you can get from solar PV, please see Solar Paybacks.
At Harvest we have extensive knowledge and experience on a wide variety of installations:
The main components within a solar PV system are the inverter and solar panels, and there are many manufacturers to choose from. Because of the variety of roof sizes and types, we do not anchor ourselves to one particular type of solar panel or inverter, this allows us to specify the best system for your property.
