Solar power is an excellent option for homeowners who want to save money on their energy bills while reducing their carbon footprint. By installing solar panels on their roofs, homeowners can generate their own clean, renewable energy and potentially even sell excess energy back to the grid. With the decreasing cost of solar technology and the availability of government incentives, now is a great time for homeowners to invest in solar power.
benefits of installing solar on your home
Firstly, solar energy is a renewable and sustainable source of power, which means that it does not harm the environment or contribute to climate change. By harnessing the power of the sun, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the planet for future generations.
Secondly, installing solar panels can also help you save money on your electricity bills in the long run. While there may be an initial investment required, solar panels can pay for themselves over time as you generate your own electricity and reduce your reliance on the grid.

what our homeowners say
We understand there are a lot of questions regarding solar panels for homeowners, so here is a great bunch of frequently asked questions. Let us know if you have any other questions!
A residential solar installation is a system of solar panels that are installed on a homeowner’s property to generate electricity from the sun’s energy.
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. The electricity generated by the panels is then fed into an inverter, which converts the direct current (DC) power produced by the panels into alternating current (AC) power that can be used to power a home.
Installing solar panels can help you save money on your electricity bills by generating your own power and reduce your carbon footprint by using renewable energy.
The cost of a residential solar installation depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the system, the type of panels used, and the complexity of the installation. On average, a typical residential solar installation can cost anywhere from £7,000 to £20,000.
The amount of electricity a residential solar installation can generate depends on the size of the system, the amount of sunlight the panels receive, and other factors. A typical residential solar installation can generate anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year.
Most solar panels come with a warranty of 25 years, and can last even longer with proper maintenance.
No, you do not need special equipment to use the electricity generated by your solar panels. The electricity is fed directly into your home’s electrical system, and any excess power can be sent back to the grid or stored in batteries.
Yes, solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy days, although the amount of electricity produced will be lower than on sunny days.
The requirements for installing solar panels can vary depending on your location, so it’s a good idea to check with your local council or utility company to find out what permits or approvals are needed.
When choosing a solar installer, it’s important to look for a company that is certified and insured, has experience installing solar panels, and offers a warranty on their work. Contact us here at Glo Renewables to find out why we’re perfect for your project!
