Solar Photovoltaic (PV)

Here in the South of England we have some of the highest levels of light in the UK giving the potential for an excellent free energy source

With a Solar Photovoltaic (PV) installation by Andy Whitty Ltd this energy can be harnessed and turned into free electricity.

Unlike the old type solar panels which simply heated water, the new technology in Photovoltaic panels allows the generation of electricity, not just from the sun, but from all levels of daylight, which you can either use or sell to the National Grid via your energy supplier.

From 1st April 2010 the Government introduced feed in tariffs (FITs) which obliged energy suppliers to pay premium prices for ecologically produced electricity, these FITs are index linked and guaranteed for 25 years.

Andy Whitty Ltd has gained membership with the MCS – Microgeneration Certification Scheme which is vital if you are to obtain your feed in tariff.

The income generated from FITs is tax free for domestic users so with the current bank rates remaining low the money invested in a PV system could give a better return than the same amount of money invested in the bank, typically paying for itself in less than 10 years.

The installation of a PV system causes minimum disruption as most of the installation is carried out on the roof surface and within the roof space.

With our maintenance free systems, once installed you report your generation meter reading each quarter and receive your payment direct from your electricity supplier.

Simply call 01305 889398 and our fully trained engineer will visit your property to assess the suitability of installing a PV system taking into account the surrounding location, the roof type and roof area.
