Why Choose Solar Energy

Electricity bills have skyrocketed recently. Ofgem, the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets, raised the cap on energy prices in the United Kingdom. This is why the cost of electricity increased by 66.7% between 2022 and 2023.

This has led many people in the UK to look into renewable technology, including solar panels. Their ability to generate power independently of the local energy grid has made a solar panel system with photovoltaic cells a cost-effective option. On top of reduced energy bills, you could even sell any excess power your Leicester home produces and stores in solar batteries back to your neighbourhood energy supplier

Keep your composure in the face of rising energy costs. Contact us immediately to learn more about how solar power can help you save money and help the planet by providing carbon-free electricity.

Reduced Reliance on Grids

Solar power technology has been around for years, but the technology has only started to become commonplace within the past ten years. Thanks to advancements in the industry, solar PV installations and batteries are more readily available, and the price has fallen significantly. It even has a payback period after initial installation. 

Due to their increased energy efficiency, a solar PV system can help fuel your home in a more environmentally friendly way. Solar PV systems require little maintenance and cut down on your energy bills. 

Solar panels, also known as photovoltaics, generate electricity by utilising the sun’s light. This light can be transformed from sunlight into a passive alternating current (AC) due to the photosensitivity of the panel’s cells. Ecostar Solar’s high-quality solar panels can produce up to 400 watts of power, although this can vary depending on style and size.

Photovoltaic panels are becoming more effective and light-sensitive as solar technology develops. In the past 20 years alone, solar power has advanced by leaps and bounds. Given the significant advancements made in just the last ten years, we are optimistic that more technological advances will be made in the upcoming years.

You generally only need planning permission for solar panel installation if your property is in a conservation area or for listed buildings. We can advise on any specific local requirements that might apply.

The costs for solar and battery storage systems typically start from £6000. These prices can vary based on your specific energy needs, system size (the more panels you need, the more you’ll pay), and the type of system you choose. If you have a flat roof, a mounting system will require the solar panel work to lie at the correct angle.

With solar panels, you can save up to 70% on your energy bills. The savings depend on your energy usage, the size of the solar system, and other factors.

There are specific grants available, such as those under the eco4 grant scheme, that can help offset the costs of installing solar panels.

The installation of solar panels and battery storage typically takes 1-2 days, depending on the complexity and size of your system.

Solar panels perform very well in the West Midlands, suitable for south, east, west, and even north-facing roofs. Our region’s climate is conducive to solar energy generation.

Solar panels require minimal maintenance, mainly periodic cleaning. This ensures they continue to operate at peak efficiency.
