Go solar for summer

With summer just around the corner, there couldn’t be a better time to go solar.

Not only a great way to protect your home or business from rising energy bills, did you know that with a solar PV installation, you can sell unused energy back into the grid for up to, and over, 20 years?

Firmly among the UK’s most popular renewable energy solutions, solar PV – or solar photovoltaic – has been readily available to home and business for a number of years, however recent drops in price have made it far more accessible to homeowners. This means that more people than ever are switching to solar to protect themselves against hikes in energy prices.

It works by converting the energy in the sun’s rays into the electricity used to power appliances. Energy generated is distributed to appliances around the home that are drawing power, and any unused energy can either be stored, or sold back to the grid. The latter is a great way to offset installation costs and as mentioned before, solar PV homes can expect to generate income from their energy supply for more than two decades!

So who can help you make the switch? One of Cornwall and the south west’s leading providers is GreenGenUK. Since opening in 2011, the team have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to the consultation, design and installation of solar PV solutions, varying in size from small domestic installations, to large-scale commercial projects. As a result, they can offer impartial advice on renewable installations – advice that’s offered on a case-by-case basis, ensuring it’s tailored to the unique requirements of your home or commercial project.

If you do choose GreenGenUK, your project will begin with a free-of-charge, no obligation survey – conducted so that the team can better understand your needs. This also allows them to answer any questions you may have around both solar and other renewable energy alternatives. From here, they will draw up a detailed and accurate quote, specifying the components that will be used, before breaking down the financial and environmental benefit of the system. And, due to the fast-changing nature of the solar industry, they are always happy to requote, should your requirements suddenly change.

But just don’t take our word for it! On the GreenGenUK website you’ll find a string of stellar testimonials from happy clients on the Case Studies page, and it’s fair to say that if you’re already contemplating making the switch to renewable energy, you’ll quickly see the benefit of booking your free no-obligation survey with the GreenGen team.
