The Advantages of Solar Energy

Solar panels take advantage of one of nature’s most powerful yet free resources: the energy produced by the sun. Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) systems, use semiconductor technology to convert energy from sunlight into electricity that can power your household for free.

Solar PV panels are very efficient in the UK. Although the efficiency of solar PV panels is higher on sunny days, they do not need direct sunlight to work. Solar panels can also produce a considerable amount of electricity on cloudy days and during the winter season.

In fact, solar PV panels are more suited to cooler temperatures. Solar panels can overheat in hot countries, and that reduces their efficiency. Therefore, the UK weather is ideal for solar panels to work optimally. GME Group customers tell us that getting a solar PV panel installation is one of the most rewarding things they have ever done.

Having a solar panel installed on your property has immense benefits. Solar photovoltaic systems, which are a source of green electricity, can help you in lowering your carbon footprint and mitigate climate change. A solar panel solution can also reduce your energy bills and save you money. A typical home solar PV system could save around 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon per year (depending on where you are within the UK).

Here are a few benefits of installing a solar PV panel onto a property:

  • Renewable Energy Source – Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. We cannot run out of solar energy, unlike some of the other sources of energy. Solar energy is energy supplied by nature – it is thus free and abundant!
  • Clean Energy – One main reason to opt for solar energy is knowing you’re doing something good for the environment. Solar PV panels provide clean – green energy. During electricity generation with solar PV panels, there are no harmful greenhouse gas emissions thus solar PV is environmentally friendly.
  • Reduce CO² Emissions – A solar PV system allows you to cut your CO² emissions, improve your social responsibility, and help the UK meet our sustainability targets.
  • Lower Energy Bills – Solar PV systems can you can dramatically reduce your electric bills because you’re generating some of your own electricity, you’re able to cut down drastically on what you pay your energy provider.
  • Low Maintenance – Operating and maintenance costs for PV panels are considered to be low, almost negligible, compared to costs of other renewable energy systems
  • High Reliability – Solar PV panels have no mechanically moving parts, except in cases of sun-tracking mechanical bases; consequently, they have far fewer breakages or require less maintenance than other renewable energy systems.
  • Totally Silent – You won’t have to worry that the sounds of solar energy will distract you while inside your home or garden. Solar PV panels are totally silent, producing no noise at all; consequently, they are a perfect solution for urban areas and for residential applications.
  • Minimal Interference – Residential solar panels are easy to install on rooftops or on the ground without any interference to residential lifestyle. The installation of PV solar panels is simple and unobtrusive, with no interruption to your home or lifestyle while it’s happening.
  • Totally customisable – PV solar systems can be customised. Whatever your energy needs are, solar panels can be configured to meet them. From the largest mansion to a trendy two-bedroom house, you can design the exact system you need to generate the energy you plan to use.
