An ‘average’ installation will save 400kg of carbon over a year from being released into the atmosphere – depending upon what fuel you are replacing (EST). Other than saving money on your hot water and producing less CO2 you’ll be doing another good thing too. A solar thermal or PV (photovoltaic) system may increase the value of your property by improving your homes energy performance rating.
Did you know that the amount of solar energy intercepted by the earth each minute is MORE than the amount of energy that the world uses in fossil fuels each year!!(Wikipedia). There is no shortage of solar energy – EVEN in Scotland – here in the North East we get around 1000Kw hours per square metre (Scottish Solar Energy group). After everything this could provide up to 70% of your hot water needs over a year.
Photovoltaic systems have enjoyed outstanding recent popularity,
largely due to the Feed In Tariff but also because of falling material
costs. The Feed In Tariff is now the subject of quarterly reviews in
terms of the tariffs paid however, it is our genuine opinion that PV
will still constitute a solid investment once the new rate is applied,
offering returns of around 4.8% p.a. Returns will improve as power costs
increase over the coming years and we genuinely believe that renewable
technologies in receipt of Feed In Tariff income will form a new and
stable investment class.
