Cost Savings Solar Panels Northampton

You can save hundreds of pounds on your energy bills after installing solar panels and during the summer months earn money back from the grid with your SEG payments

The PV installation itself will involve the following steps:

You may need a roof survey if you roof is old or in poor condition prior to installation.

Put up scaffolding for roof access – this may not be necessary if your property is a bungalow or access is possible using a tower system.
Attach roof hooks to rafters – roof tiles/slates will need to be removed in order to screw the hooks for the frame into your roof rafters. The tiles/slates will be replaced once this is complete,
Fix frame to hooks – Working from a detailed plan from our surveyor, the rails that make the mounting frame are attached to the roof hooks and screwed together
Mount PV panels onto frame – the panels containing photovoltaic cells are mounted onto the roof frame with the use of clamps. After this bird protection will be fitted around the panels if requested. 
Connect panels to inverter – the solar panels DC output is wired to the inverter which then converts the electricity into AC for use by your property’s electrical appliances or for export to the grid. The DC cabling can either be placed underneath roof tiles and wired to an inverter within your property or mounted externally.
Electrical wiring – the DC output from the roof array is wired to the inverter, and the AC output from the inverter is connected to your property’s electricity supply and the electricity grid. Other electrical components such as AC & DC isolators are installed for safety, and an Ofgem-approved generation meter will be placed after the inverter.  You may have also ordered other items such as batteries for power storage and a smart energy system such as an eddi eco-smart energy diverter

Final checks – Our installer will perform final electrical safety and performance checks before commissioning the system, and provide you with the necessary documentation (manuals, warranties, maintenance information)

Be careful when choosing a company to install your solar. With so many new solar companies popping up with little to no experience, that like in the last boom in solar, are here today and gone tomorrow, leaving you with a poor quality installation and no after service or support. Also many big energy companies that offer solar panel installations use sub-contractors for your job, giving the work to people who have no commitment to you, the customer, and they have no reputation to uphold, many leaving customers with a poor installation and quite often a damaged and leaking roof.

Ofgem launches discussion on the future of the price cap –

A consultation on how to develop the price cap so customers remain protected as the energy market evolves to a smarter, more flexible system has been launched today by Ofgem.

The price cap, along with the temporary ban on acquisition-only tariffs, have worked well to protect customers from the ‘loyalty penalty’ where customers on default tariffs paid higher prices, and from the worst of the recent volatile markets and wholesale price surges that were a result of the energy crisis.
