Install Solar Panels

Solar panels can be installed on roofs and other outside surfaces to generate electricity and heat by capturing sunlight. Most solar panels will still generate energy on a cloudy day.

Installing solar panels on your roof can bring many benefits:

  • It is better for the environment- solar power doesn’t use fossil fuels or create carbon dioxide or other air pollutants when generating power.
  • It can save you money – depending on your energy usage and how much solar energy you produce.
  • In the UK, you might be supported financially by the UK government’s Feed-In Tariff scheme. For example, you can sell your electricity back to the National Grid. The Feed-In Tariff scheme will also pay you for the electricity you generate, even if you use it.

When installing solar panels, you will need to consider the cost, maintenance costs, and any relevant planning permissions or local legislation. If you are in the UK, here are some things you might need to consider when installing solar panels or renewable energy sources in your own home. If you are in the USA, you can find more information here about installing solar panels and renewable energy sources in your own home.

Solar energy, although not particularly new in terms of technology, is a relatively new source of large scale energy production. In its basic form, solar panels harness the energy of the sun and create electricity. However, if you are wondering “how is solar energy produced” then the entire process is intricate and extremely sophisticated. Despite […]
In our quest to reduce carbon emissions, solar farms are becoming a common sight across the globe. What was once a slow-moving technology has now become a mainstream alternative to energy produced from fossil fuels. To demonstrate this growth, we take a look below at the 10 biggest solar farms in the world.
When we consider the way in which we needlessly use energy, we could all do a little more. Taking stock of where we can benefit from using renewable energy in daily life can help our transition to cleaner sustainable energy. 
For centuries farmers have farmed land where they have earned a living growing crops or raising livestock. However, in recent years, due to the way in which the economy has changed and supermarkets have taken over, farmers are really feeling the pinch. In many places, it's a lot tougher to earn a living from traditional […]
