The Solar PV Process

See how you can use solar for more than just generating your own electricity!

01

Generate Electricity

Solar PV panels consist of multiple cells made from semiconducting materials, which create electricity whenever light shines upon them. They can continue to produce electricity, although at a lower rate, even on overcast days.

02

Store Electricity

The electricity created by solar panels, if not used in the daytime, can be stored in a battery, and used when your demand is higher in the evening.

03

Export to the grid

Excess electricity generated but not used can be exported to the grid to receive money from the energy companies as part of the Smart Export Guarantee.

How Bringing the Latest Solar Technology Is Worth The Investment

Our solar PV and battery storage packages start from just £6,995, but is solar really worth the investment? It’s possible with the savings that the cost of your solar system could provide payback within around 11 years, but this would depend on a number of different factors.

If you work from home or have several people at home (and therefore use more electricity during the day) then your bill savings will be boosted. Charging an electric vehicle or combining your solar PV with other renewable technologies, such as heat pumps or solar hot water systems can also increase your savings.

If you are able to take advantage of any excess electricity produced and sell it back to the grid in return for Smart Export Guarantee payments, your annual savings can be boosted further. The Energy Saving Trust, for example, estimates that a household that is home all day and receiving SEG payments could enjoy annual savings of up to £525 in some locations in the UK.

Solar Panel Company FAQ's

Some of the most common questions about solar arrays are answered for you here…

With a need for UK households to shift to greener more energy efficient systems, alternatives such as solar PV panels are becoming commonplace. Installing a solar PV system is a great investment for those whose property is suitable for this kind of set up.

Solar energy is a form of renewable energy, since it is generated from daylight as opposed to fossil fuels which have traditionally been used to power and heat homes. Going solar helps to reduce a household’s carbon footprint and has a positive effect on energy bills.

At a time when energy prices have reached unprecedented highs, the need to keep your bills in check has never been needed more. Solar is a cost-effective alternative and helps you reduce your dependence on the National Grid.

As a great renewable technology, most solar panels can even boost the value of a property, making it a wise investment that will bring benefits immediately but also for the long-term.

Solar PV panels are made from semiconducting materials, which when light shines upon the multiple cells made, electricity is created which then needs to be converted so it can be used in the home. The electricity created by the solar panels is direct current (DC) and a solar inverter converts it to alternating current (AC) to make it suitable for domestic use.

Electricity produced by solar PV panels can be used at the time it is produced, stored in a battery for later use, or any excess electricity produced can even be exported to the grid for payment. Solar panels don’t necessarily need direct sunlight to work though the brighter the light exposure is, the higher the electricity output produced will be.

Unfortunately, solar panels aren’t a viable option for every household. Issues such as the size and orientation of your roof space, including any shadows being cast, can all impact on the ability to generate solar power efficiently.

This also applies to commercial solar panels too.

For maximum performance, a roof should be predominantly south-facing and be unshaded during the peak daylight hours (generally between 10am-4pm). Do not be overly concerned if your roof is not oriented in the right direction as it is still possible to have east/west facing solar panels which will still generate a good amount of solar electricity – around 80%+ compared to south-facing roofs.

The current condition of your roof is also a factor. The roof space needs to be large enough to house a solar array of sufficient size for it to be viable. Pitched roofs (usually at an angle of around 30 degrees) are usually more effective at capturing light rays than solar panels sited on a flat roof.

Solar batteries are an absolute must if you want to maximise the savings you make on your electricity bills through your solar system. Batteries store the electricity your solar panels generate that you don’t need to use at the time.

This is particularly useful for people who are out working in the day (during the peak solar production hours of the day). The solar electricity can be stored in your battery for use in the evenings when you may want to operate high-energy consuming appliances such as tumble dryers, dishwashers, and washing machines.

Having a solar battery means that you’ll use more of the electricity you generate rather than sending it back to the grid. The battery allows you to call upon the energy stored during the hours when your solar system isn’t producing solar power.

Savings with solar are hard to pin down with any certainty as there are so many factors to consider including the weather, energy prices and a household’s daily electricity use habits.

That said, as a rough guide to potential savings with solar, the Energy Saving Trust suggests the following potential savings for households that install solar, depending on the time they spend out of the home during the day and whether they export excess electricity back to the grid under the Smart Export Guarantee.

HouseholdWith SEG (exporting to the grid)Without SEG
Home all day£485£385
Home in mornings£420£305
Home in afternoons£395£275
Out all day until 4pm£330£190
Out all day until 6pm£305£160

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is an opportunity to receive payment for any excess electricity produced that you don’t use. It comes from an obligation placed by the government for larger energy suppliers to offer an export tariff that pays customers for excess electricity that they send back to the grid from renewable technologies such as solar panels.

ESE Solar are an official partner of Flexi-Orb, which allows customers to receive SEG payments, meaning you can earn money from the excess energy your solar system generates.

Solar panels are a brilliant green alternative to traditional methods of heating and powering a home which have relied on burning fossil fuel or converting electricity into heat. They generate electricity for the home using daylight, which is abundant and a renewable source of energy.

By switching to solar panels through a reliable solar panel company like ESE Solar, you can massively reduce your carbon footprint. A typical 3.5kW solar system for example reduces a household’s carbon emissions by almost one tonne of CO2 annually.

With our extensive experience of solar installation, we can help you find out whether solar is suitable for your home and then identify the best setup to maximise your savings.

Whether you are looking for a solar PV system for the first time, seeking to upgrade a current solar system, or needing solar maintenance or repairs, our expert team have got you thoroughly covered and this marks us out as the best option among UK solar companies.

When you’ve made the decision to choose us as the solar company you’d like to work with, we understand you will be keen to press on and get up and running as soon as possible. We’re proud to say that we offer one of the fastest turnaround times in the UK. We have perfected our solar installation process and, on average, we fully install solar systems within 3-6 weeks from the moment our customers pay their £1,000 deposit.

The good news is that planning permission is not usually required for solar panels as these are normally considered ‘permitted development’, so there is usually no delay involved as there would be if you were having to seek planning approval.

There are some exceptions when it comes to planning permission for solar panels, and these apply if your property is a listed building or in a conservation area. In these circumstances, you may need to seek approval from your local authority building control team.

Rest assured, if you have any problems with your solar set up, we’re there for you. Should any issues occur ESE Solar will take care of this with our industry leading 15 years maintenance package which includes callouts and 24-hour monitoring of your system, ensuring maximum generation for your home.

ESE Solar also provides insurance backed guarantees, meaning if for whatever reason ESE Solar was no longer in business then the work we carried out is insured.

There is a popular misconception that solar panels need direct sunlight to generate electricity, but this isn’t the case. Solar panels need light, not necessarily direct light in order to produce solar power, though they will produce at a lower rate on cloudier days.

On overcast days, your solar panels might work at half capacity, though this could fall further with extreme cloud cover. You do not need to be worried about having insufficient electricity supply on these low production days as your home will just draw electricity from the grid to meet your need, as you did before your solar panels were installed.

The length of time that solar panels last has increased over time as the technology has improved. These days, solar panels are generally expected to last between 20-25 years, but it is not unheard of, and some manufacturers even claim that their solar panels could operate effectively for as much as 40 years.

While solar panels generally require minimal maintenance, their efficiency can fall over their lifetime (by about 15%) and inverters may need to be replaced. There may be occasions when things go wrong, and that’s where we can help you with our comprehensive maintenance service.

Households are able to benefit from zero-rate of VAT on energy-efficient measures being installed in residential households, such as having solar panels fitted. The scheme is due to run for five years from April 2022 and will last until the end of March 2027.
