Solar Panels In Wales and the UK

In the UK, about 12,000 solar panels are installed every month. According to government statistics, more than one million solar power systems contribute to 4% of the total electricity generation in the country.

In Wales alone, 55% of the total electric consumption comes from renewable energy. The Welsh government targets a 15% increase in usage by 2030, finally reaching net zero by 2050.

Along with this, the UK government’s Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) policy encourages homeowners to switch to green energy by granting them the sale of their excess solar-generated electricity.

What Are Solar Panels?

Solar panels, also called photovoltaics (PV), are composed of semiconductors that directly convert solar energy to electricity. An inverter changes the generated direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC), which generates power.

This energy conversion process is also known as the photovoltaic effect. The photovoltaic system is a widely-used solar panel system in the United Kingdom.

The amount of sunlight determines the amount of electricity generated. It ranges from 18-30 kW/m2 depending on the season and the location.

The solar panels can work even without direct sunlight on cloudy days. Nevertheless, days with strong sunlight are ideal for generating more electricity, with each panel being able to generate up to 355 W.

A solar PV system can either be grid-connected, stand-alone, or a combination of both.

01

Grid-Connected Photovoltaic System

The grid-connected PV system connects to the local utility grid. With this, the utility grid can supply extra electricity in case of a shortage in your residential solar panel system. However, this will have a knock-on effect with your energy bills.

At the same time, the excess electricity generated in your solar panel system can also be exported to the national grid. This occurs through the Smart Export Guarantee, and can earn you extra money.

02

Stand-Alone Photovoltaic System

In this system, solar batteries accumulate electricity for later use, boosting your energy saving measures. Typically, batteries are more commonly included in systems not on the national grid.

It’s also more expensive compared to grid-connected systems due to the solar batteries’ cost. However, battery storage can be used whether you’re grid-connected or not, and can also save you money on your energy bills in the long run.

The Benefits Of Using Solar Energy

As the accessibility of renewable energy grows, and rising energy prices continue, more and more people are installing solar panels. With the growth in demand, solar panels are also getting cheaper. In fact, solar panel prices have decreased by about 80% in the last decade.

Solar energy is an environmentally sustainable and energy efficient way of powering you home. Not only will solar panels help you save money in the short-term, but solar panel systems have a typical lifespan of over 25 years.

Additionally, solar panels can reduce your energy bills. Government research suggests that solar panels can cut heating costs by an average of 50%. Altogether, you can save an estimated total in excess of £600 each year by generating your very own solar electricity.

Further, you can earn additional money with the government’s SEG policy which allows you to sell any surplus energy generated by your solar PV panels.

Solar Panel Installation in Wales

Before getting solar panels installed at your property in Wales, you need to consider the following factors:

  • Number of windows on the roof
  • Roof orientation
  • Roof pitch
  • Roof material
  • Shading from the sun

 

The energy efficiency levels of your solar panels will be impacted by: the time of the year, how many solar panels you have installed, and the direction the solar panels are facing. In Wales, solar panels facing south-ward will be more energy efficient than panels facing north-wards.

The installation cost depends on many factors, primarily the size and type of your solar panel system. Sizes typically differ from a 3 kW system to a 6 kW system.

The main types are:

01

Monocrystalline Solar Panels

These panels are also called single-crystal panels. Made from one pure silicon crystal, it’s the thinnest, most resilient, and most space-efficient solar panel type.

Nevertheless, it’s also the most expensive. It’s best used in hot climates with scant airflow.

02

Polycrystalline Solar Panels

Instead of a single crystal, the panels come from different silicon crystals. With reduced silicon purity, it’s less energy and space-efficient.

It’s best used in areas with high air circulation and lower temperatures. Although, it’s also more affordable.

What We Offer

Starting at just £6,995, we provide a Solar PV Array system installation package that includes:

Our Solar PV Design System provides a comprehensive view of how your newly-installed solar system works.

The simple interface shows a visualisation of the process of energy generation and storage. Using the tool, you can see the amount of energy you’ll use and the amount you can export to the grid.

Moreover, our specialist Design System also shows your solar system’s performance, electricity bills, and other financial details, as well as its overall environmental impact on the planet.

Solar Panels FAQ's

Some of the most common questions about solar installations are answered for you here…
Solar panels generally take up about 20 m2 of roof area with an average system size of 3.5kWp.
Yes. The Solar PV Array can be used to charge/top-up an electric vehicle.

Yes, solar panels work effectively in Wales. The country receives a relatively large amount of sunlight throughout the year.

Further, solar panels don’t need direct sunlight to operate hence they can still produce a high amount of electricity on cloudy and snowy days.

Yes. Known as the Albedo Effect, the snow’s white colour is able to reflect sunlight. This makes solar panels effective even in winter climates.

Depending on your area, the Local Planning Authority has set certain limits and conditions.

Nevertheless, the installation of solar panels on residential property is considered a “permitted development.” This means you don’t have to apply for planning permission.

As the world continues its fight against climate change, the UK has also been suffering with the fuel poverty crisis. One of the ways that the government has chosen to fight this issue is through the creation of a variety of solar panel grants. Specifically designed to target energy inefficient and low income households, to help reduce their energy bills and to become more energy efficient, each solar panel grant has its own eligibility criteria.

Nest Wales

Created by the Welsh government, the Nest scheme is designed to improve inefficient homes in Wales by providing energy efficiency improvements, which can include solar panels. In order to be eligible for Nest you must:

  • Own or privately rent your home.
  • Your home must be energy inefficient.
  • At least one member of your household must receive means tested benefits.

Energy Company Obligation 4 (ECO4) scheme

Similar to Nest Wales, but open to the whole of the UK, this latest eco scheme aims to help the most vulnerable households in the country and make them more energy efficient. Solar panel installations are another measure available through this scheme. To be eligible to receive help through ECO4 you must:

  • Have at least one member of your household receive means tested benefits.
  • Your household must have an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of D or lower.
