What are Solar Panels (PV): Photovoltaic, simply put – a bunch of crystals that converts the sun power into energy for your home; an inverter then converts that energy into mains power to use around the home. Most domestic systems are 4kw system which means your panels (usually around 14 panels) will produce around 4000kwh of electricity to use around your home over a period of 12 months.
The Government FIT (FEED IN TARIFF) was introduced in 2008 as an incentive to help the UK hit its targets set by the Kyoto Protocol: 15% of households using Solar by 2020. The FIT is currently at 4.39p which is guaranteed for 20 years, index linked and still represents a government backed incentive of around £6000 depending on your system. However, this is reducing every quarter until fazed out. Once you have the Panels installed on your roof you are locked into that tariff for 20 years. There is no better time to buy than now.
Three ways you are rewarded for generating renewable electricity:
1. Generation Tariff: Paid to the owner of the system for every unit of electricity it generates, whether you consume it or export it back to the grid;
2. Export Tariff: Paid to the owner of the system for excess electricity automatically exported back to the grid. For systems under 30kWp this is deemed to be 50%. Larger systems are monitored using an export meter;
3. Energy bill savings: The amount you save will vary depending on how much free renewable electricity you consume within your property.
The SurePower All in One Solution
One complete unit using Samsung technology all in one smart unit which includes the batteries, inverter, reverse charger and electronics (10 world wide Patents). There are no un-sightly cables linking batteries together with chargers and inverters. The unit can be placed anywhere in the house or garage and is on wheels so can be moved if needed. With a digital display on the unit, you do not need to log in via external software to monitor your system. This is a unique one box solution, using tried and tested technology only from Sure Power Group.
We also specialise in LG and Pylontech batteries and the market leading SolaX Hybrid inverters, using this type of module design enables you to add further batteries at a later date and is ideal for households where space is a premium, it can be installed in the loft with your existing PV equipment.
Firstly, you currently get paid via the Government (FIT) an export tariff, this is based on you sending 50% of the electricity you produce back to the grid, whether you do or don’t, so don’t and still get paid here’s how:
Smart storage systems (batteries) will automatically take the electricity that you would otherwise be sending back to the grid and use it to charge up the battery for later consumption, when you are no longer generating free electricity from your Solar Panels. Thus minimising consumption from the grid in your household, you will be using your free electricity generated by your panels and stored in your home batteries. The combination of a PV system and batteries enables you to meet most of your electricity needs yourself. That cuts your annual electricity bill by more than 80 per cent in some cases. It also makes you independent and protects you against electricity rate hikes.
Using the SurePower all in one Energy Storage Solution you will also become your own mini grid, in the event of a power cut your batteries will automatically kick in therefore saving your bacon, literally, if you have a freezer full of food that may defrost!
Store now. Use later.
