Reduce your energy bills this winter

Winter can be a real drain on your resources, especially your energy bills. It can be very costly to heat a home for the duration of the cold weather, which in the UK can last for long periods of time – often from September to April. As well as heating, you will also have to spend more on fuelling your lighting as the winter brings shorter days. It seems as though every year the price of electricity increases and a lot of people find themselves cutting corners to save money. Fortunately, there is an alternative.

Instead of relying solely on energy companies to charge you to use their services, you can invest in a Photovoltaic (PV) solar panel system, allowing you to generate your home’s own energy and thus allowing you to save money on your bills. We are able to offer expert advice, great prices and full installation for your solar panels to ensure that they are efficient and working to their best.

One of the largest misconceptions about solar panels is that they won’t be able to generate power if the sun isn’t out, which is only for a few months consistently in the UK. However, even if the sky is overcast with clouds you will still be able to generate electricity through your solar panels. Photovoltaic cells don’t use direct sunlight as their only source of energy, but also diffused solar radiation, which is when light is scattered by water and dust particles in the atmosphere. It is true that you will receive a larger intensity on sunny days, but solar panels can deliver a consistent electricity supply without the summer sun.
