Solar PV / Thermal
The benefit of installing Solar Photovoltaic panel is the energy it produces is FREE.
Utilising the daylight produced by the Sun our carefully selected low maintenance panels produce electricity that, via an inverter, will run domestic appliances, computers, lights, lawn mowers, in fact just about anything that makes up part of the electrical installation of your property.
If you do not use all the free electricity you produce then you can sell it back to your energy supplier. Alternatively you may consider utilising other technologies to redistribute the energy to heat your hot water.
With the current “Feed in Tariffs” you will be paid by the government for every watt of energy your system produces, if you use this energy you will not have to purchase as much energy from your supplier as you currently do, thus saving on your energy bills, alternatively if you don't use it you can sell the energy you produce back to your supplier, still receiving the Feed in Tariff for it, and a further payment from your supplier for providing them with electricity, making you additional savings on your annual electricity bill.
Solar PV systems require very little routine maintenance due to the system components having no moving parts, therefore you can expect its lifespan to potentially exceed 30 Years (most inverters have a predicted 10 year life expectancy so these may need replacing). APS are also able to offer an extensive Solar module cleaning service. This will ensure efficiency of your solar modules and solar Thermal panels which is paramount to increasing the income and the electrical producing ability as well as making hot water.
With the current Feed in Tariff rate of 43p, a 4kw system could produce a profit of £60,000 on top of your initial investment over a 25 year period. (Amended based on the example you provided)
The Government calculates that you will save 568 grams of CO2 for each unit of electricity that you generate, whether you use it or export it, so you can be sure your do your bit to reduce your CARBON FOOTPRINT
APS suppliers are accredited to provide commercial customers with a cost neutral finance option, which is inclusive of an “Energy Assessment by the Carbon Trust” to validate the savings we deliver.
