Solar PV Systems

"Solar photovoltaic (also known as solar PV) systems convert energy from the sun into electricity, which can then be used to power household appliances and lighting."

Solar PV systems can be relatively simple, with their main components being solar panels or modules. You can install solar PV systems for a building with a roof or wall that faces within 90 degrees of south, as long as no other buildings or large trees overshadow it. If the photovoltaic surface is in the shade for parts of the day less energy will be generated, but it will still generate some electricity. The more panels you can fit on your roof, the more expensive the system will be to install, but the more electricity you will produce.

At Whitehall Electrical Ltd we work closely in partnership with Aztec Solar to properly survey and advise on the best, renewable energy system for your situation. This may be an air or ground heat pump, solar PV, or solar thermal or a combination of all of them. Aztec Solar are highly qualified experts in all renewable energy systems. We will explain to you the costs involved, but more importantly the excellent returns you can receive through fuel savings and, of course, the government's Renewable Heat Incentive! 

Solar PV panels should last a minimum of 25 years and benefit from being virtually maintenance free. If your roof has a fairly shallow pitch or is flat, it may accumulate bird droppings, leaves or dirt, so the solar panels will need occasional cleaning.

There are many benefits of installing a PV system, including:

- To create energy only daylight is needed, so sunshine is not a necessity.

- Solar PV systems can be connected to the national grid and any excess electricity can then be sold back, taking advantage of the FIT tariff.

- Solar PV systems can cut an average household electricity bill by around 40%.

Our Guarantee - At Whitehall Electrical Ltd we guarantee that each customer will receive professional and knowledgeable advice, and our work will always be carried out to the highest standard, giving 100% satisfaction every time.
