What are solar panels and battery storage systems?
Solar panels are layers of semi-conducting material that you can install on the exterior of your home (usually the roof) to generate renewable energy from the sun’s rays.
These cells can work all year round, even on days when the sun doesn’t seem to be shining, to transform sunlight into the energy that can power your everyday appliances, electric heaters, or your electric vehicle.
Most people who have solar panels installed will also set up a battery storage system in their home which can store the energy generated by their solar panels during the day, saving it for when you need power later on.
The benefits of solar panels and battery storage systems
We’re all struggling with the dramatic energy price hikes at the moment and, one way that we can reduce our reliance on expensive energy providers is by generating our own solar energy.
For many homeowners, using solar panels and a battery storage system can help reduce your energy bills by as much as 70% every single year.
Although setting up these systems will require significant investment in the short term, the cost savings that you can enjoy as a result of it will make your money back in no time.
On average, solar panels can last for around 25 years and can provide your home with reliable, green energy and help you cut down on your monthly outgoings.
