Solar Panels - Photovoltaic
These types of solar panel generate electricity and are by far the most popular type.
- Cost & Feed-in-Tariffs - The cost of installation depends upon the size of the system but is normally between £5,000 to £10,000.
- The governments feed-in-tariff is arranged so that you have to pay for the initial installation and with normal usage will get full payback within 8 to 10 years.
- Most Photovoltaic panels are guaranteed to be still 80% efficient after 25 years, hence in the future you should get 15 years of cheap electricity.
- Installation – most people choose to install them on a south facing roof. However you might want to consider a large array covering the entire roof of a garage. This makes a visible eco-statement and will also look more aesthetically pleasing than panels on the roof of the main house.
