An introduction to Solar PV from SolarUK


A real opportunity

With the introduction of the new Feed in Tariff initiative by the Government, you have a fantastic opportunity to not only use this technology, but get paid to.
Those who adopt the technology will see a real saving on their electricity bill and a seperate income from every single unit of electricity generated!
The important thing to mention is we are MCS accredited so all new installations comply and can be eligible for FITs.

Domestic Solar PV Installation

This installation would be limited by either your budget or the size of the roof. A medium sized domestic solar P.V. installation could be 2 kW of solar panels.

This could be 8 solar panels, each panel being about 1 metre by 1.65 metres. The overall price would typically be about £3,995 and include equipment, installation and connection to the mains.

A typical 4kW system can cost as little £6,100 fully fitted with an Energy Performance Certificate meaning the system will pay for itself in 7 to 8 years. (click here to generate savings chart )


What is the payback? The FIT will pay 12.47 p per kWh generated whether you use it or not on a 4kWp system. Your electricity supplier will pay for any units exported, so any excess energy generated will be used and be paid for, and of course, you don't have to pay your electricity company anything for energy that you generate and you use yourself. Your utility company usually assumes that 50% of the energy generated is exported to the national grid.

This will also add real value to your house in that it not only has a lower electricity running cost but can make money for the new owner.
