The Benefits of a Solar-powered Self Build

ProAktive THE BENEFITS OF A SOLAR-POWERED SELF BUILD Solar power is the conversion of energy from the sun into electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) cells in solar panels convert sunlight from the sun to direct current (DC) electricity, which powers lights and produces hot water. Solar-powered homes could be the future of a more sustainable planet. Here are several benefits to having a solar-powered self build home: Environmentally Friendly Choosing to use solar power is good for your carbon footprint, as it doesn't produce greenhouse gasses. Solar power is a natural and renewable source of energy created by natural sunlight. Cost Saving As you are relying on power generated by your home's solar power system, your energy bills could reduce by 60%-80%. Your savings will depend on the size of your solar power system and your electricity/heat usage. Your savings could increase if you've produced excess electricity and you don't use it. You can sell it on to the grid you are connected to. Low Maintenance & Long Lasting On some occasions you may want to get your solar panels cleaned to ensure they are working as efficiently as possible. Other than that there shouldn't be any more maintenance jobs or running costs. Solar panels the market today are usually covered with a 20-25 years warranty so if anything goes wrong, the solar panels can be fixed free of charge in that time. Improved Grid Security Switching to solar panelled self build homes ensures better electricity grid security. Any home in the UK that has solar cells installed means that it is providing extra power to the grid. This means than brownouts or blackouts occur less frequently for everyone. Increased Employment & Economic Growth Rate The more people who choose solar power for their self build homes, the more jobs there will be for experienced workers to install the solar panels. Subsequently, this will keep the economy growing in the UK. If you are thinking about taking a solar-powered Self Build project, be sure to protect your investment with Self Build insurance. ProAktive Self Build developed the first UK Self Build insurance policy in 1984. ProAktive are the industry leaders, with specialists available to discuss your project build, and insurance requirements. ProAktive Doncaster: 01302 346 831 | Follow us O0 0
