Solar Panel Installers

Based in Cleveleys, we work throughout the North-West, including Blackpool, Preston, Lancaster, Morecambe, Wigan, Southport & all surrounding areas. 

Renew Energy Ltd’s team is highly trained in multiple specialities and have years of experience. They offer solar panel grants, through ECO4. The government has now allocated around £4 billion towards installing solar panels and heat pumps across the United Kingdom. 

The government is also leaving it to local councils to decide the eligibility criteria depending on the needs and specific circumstances of people in the area. This is a fantastic development since, previously, many people who needed ECO grants did not meet the criteria set out by the government.

What is notable about ECO4 is that the eligibility is not just limited to household income or people on benefits, but can expand to accommodate the age and health of residents, number of people in the house, condition of the home, etc.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels work by absorbing the sunlight with photovoltaic cells, generating direct current energy followed by converting it to usable alternating current energy. The use of inverter technology helps this. AC energy then flows through the home’s electric panel, then distributed evenly and accordingly. There are four main steps of how they work:

What Are Solar Panels?

Solar panels are typically rectangular panels with a bluish or black hue. They’re comprised of many individual solar cells, usually made from silicon. These panels are installed in places with good exposure to sunlight, such as rooftops or open fields.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

  1. Absorption of Light: Each solar cell in a solar panel is designed to absorb sunlight. The sunlight is made up of particles of light called photons.
  2. Creation of Electron-Hole Pairs: When these photons hit the solar cell, they can free electrons from the atoms in the cell. This process results in the creation of a pair, where you have a freely moving electron and a “hole” where the electron used to be.
  3. Flow of Electric Current: Solar cells have electric fields that drive these newly-freed electrons towards the front of the cell and the holes towards the back. This motion creates an electrical current.
  4. Collection of Current: Conductive metal plates on the sides of the cell collect the electrons and transfer them to wires, thus providing power in a usable form.
  5. Conversion to Usable Power: The electricity generated by solar panels is direct current (DC). However, most of our homes and appliances use alternating current (AC). Therefore, an inverter is used to convert the DC electricity produced by solar panels into AC electricity.

Solar Panel Key Points

  • Efficiency: Only some of the sunlight that hits a solar panel will be converted into electricity. Typical commercial solar panels convert 15-20% of the sunlight they absorb into electricity, though some high-end models can achieve efficiencies of over 22%.
  • Sun Angle and Tracking: The angle at which sunlight hits the panel can affect efficiency. Some solar installations use tracking systems to move panels so they always face the sun directly.
  • Environmental Impact: Solar panels provide a source of clean, renewable energy, reducing dependence on fossil fuels and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

Solar panels allow us to harness the sun’s immense power and convert it into electricity that can power our homes, businesses, and more.

The Benefits Of Solar Panels

There are many different benefits to having solar panels installed on your home or business. 

  • Savings on Electricity Bills: Once installed, solar panels can drastically reduce or even eliminate electricity bills. The sun provides free energy, and harnessing it means less reliance on purchased electricity.
  • Tax Incentives and Rebates: Many governments offer tax credits, rebates, or other incentives to promote the adoption of solar energy. This can offset the initial installation cost.
  • Increased Home Value: Homes equipped with solar panel systems often have a higher market value and can sell faster than non-solar homes. Potential buyers recognize the benefits of reduced energy costs.

Energy Independence:

  • Reduction in Grid Reliance: Solar panels allow homeowners to produce their own electricity, reducing dependence on utility companies and the traditional power grid. This is especially valuable during peak times or power outages.

Low Maintenance:

  • Durability and Ease: Once installed, solar panels require minimal maintenance, often just occasional cleaning, and can last 25 years or more.

Sell Your Unused Energy:

One of the new benefits of a Solar PV system is that you can sell your unused energy back to the grid with certain providers. 

This means that whilst reducing your bill by using the energy produced, you can also sell the excess back, increasing your ROI. 

If you have a Solar PV system with battery storage, you can also choose which times to charge the batteries. Many energy suppliers now have cheaper night rates for electric, meaning if you charge your battery storage units during night-time hours, you will spend much less on electric. 

How Do I Know if I'm Eligible for a Solar Panel Grant?

The solar panel grant funding comes from the government’s EC04 scheme, which has been designed to reduce the cost of energy bills for low-income families and their carbon footprint.

The scheme helps homeowners offset the cost of a Solar PV system, making it more feasible to integrate photovoltaic technology into their homes.

Can you get grants for solar panels in the UK?

Several grants in the UK have been designed to encourage homeowners to have a Solar PV system installed on their home.

The EC04 grants can cover up to 100% off the cost of installing solar panels on your home.
