Solar Panels

Energy Price Cap will rise in January

With the energy price cap to rise in January adding pressure on household expenditure now is the time to enquire about the latest Solar & Home Battery systems.

Solar when partnered with Home Battery Systems and off-peak or dynamic electricity tariffs can help lower your bills. There was no reason why with a correctly sized Solar system & Battery much of your summer electricity cannot be Solar generated, either used at time of generation or stored to use later. in the Winter when Solar generation is lower the Battery can be used to charge from the grid, with off-peak tariffs that are lower cost & often when electricity is coming from lower carbon generation.

13% discount off Tesla Powerwall

As part of our 13th anniversary celebration we are offering a 13% discount off the Tesla Powerwall 2 & Gateway* when ordered together with any Solar PV System.

The Tesla Powerwall has 3 main functions:

  • Increase self-consumption of Solar power generation: Powerwall can store surplus Solar energy during daylight hours and use that energy later in the evening when the sun is not shining.
  • Time of Use/Load shifting: Powerwall can charge during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharge during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher.
  • Back-up power: In the event of a grid outage, Backup Gateway is now available to ensure your Powerwall continues to power your home or select circuits. Backup Gateway will also ensure your Solar PV system continues to generate energy during a power cut.

*The offer is valid for all orders placed from 13th October until 13th November and is only for the first Powerwall & Gateway with any order. It cannot be included with any other special promotion or where additional discount has already been offered.

Solar & Energy Storage 0% VAT

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced yesterday during the Spring Statement 2022, the Government are cutting VAT on installing energy-saving materials in residential properties from 5% to 0% from 1 April 2022 until 31 March 2027.

Solar Energy UK has sought clarity from Government on the classification of domestic energy storage within the VAT announcement and we are delighted to announce that Government has confirmed that the zero rate VAT applies to domestic energy storage when installed with solar, although retrofit or standalone batteries would still be subject to 20% VAT.

As you can imagine this has generated a great deal of interest especially with the current energy price increases home owners are seeing so we ask that please be patient when making enquiries as we may take longer to reply than normal.

Rest assured that when we do install for you, we will use market leading products and install to the highest quality.

SunPower launches 40yr Warranty for its Maxeon Solar Panels

SunPower Maxeon is making history this week by launching the solar industry’s longest and most comprehensive combined #40yearwarranty, leading the way in product quality, power performance and sustainability.

This new 40yr Warranty covers Product, Performance & Service guaranteeing this is really #solarforlife.

“The new SunPower Maxeon 40 Year Warranty is based on external field studies from more than 33 million Maxeon panels deployed worldwide, comprehensive accelerated life testing by Maxeon and third parties, and a physics-based model which Maxeon uses to determine the expected performance impact over time from major degradation and failure modes,” the manufacturer stated. “Collectively, these give Maxeon and our customers confidence that the SunPower Maxeon module technology can support a 40-year warranted life, and that continued operation beyond this period is certainly feasible.”

Maxeon modules come with a minimum warranted output of 98% during their first year of operation, followed by a maximum annual degradation of 0.25% for the next 39 years. “The result is an unprecedented 88.3% warranted power level at the end of 40 years, meaning Maxeon panels deliver up to 9.5% more power after 40 years than standard solar panels deliver after 25 years.”

We stock the Maxeon 3 400w & 430w modules as well as the “all black” 375w modules and all now include this 40yr warranty.

Solar & Energy Storage reduce impact of increased energy prices

With energy prices continuing to rise both homes and businesses can reduce the impact by installing Solar or Energy Storage.

Solar panels generate free, green electricity and when partnered with a battery most of the solar generated electricity can be used or stored to use later, and when the Solar doesn’t generate enough electricity the battery can charge from the grid at times of the day when prices are lower to then be used later when prices are higher.

Not got a suitable roof??? Install just a battery and make use of off-peak low cost tariffs.

Whilst home owners are protected to a certain degree by the price cap, businesses will see their prices increase, so the same principle applies; a combinaiton of Solar & Energy Storage or each of the technologies individually will help reduce the impact.

For more information contact us by clicking here.

To design a bespoke system for you we will need to know how much electricity in kWh you use per annum and ideally when you use it and a brief description of what you are trying to achieve.
