These days many of us are concerned about skyrocketing energy costs. However, there is a solution, and more and more homeowners are installing a PV solar panels in Penshurst. Solar panels can reduce your reliance on the grid and, as a result, your electric bills by up to 85%. Our calculator will give you an idea of how much you could potentially save on bills with solar panels..
Although the most influential incentive of a solar panel installation is saving on bills, there is also the advantage of knowing you are lowering your carbon footprint and helping the planet. An average-sized residential solar panel system saves about 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon annually.
When deciding to go solar, you have two choices. You could opt for solar panels only or a complete storage system with batteries. The advantage of the batteries is they store power produced by the panels so you can use it later. With panels only, you can only use the energy as it is produced, so if you are not at home much during the day, power is wasted.
A battery storage system is best for a family out at work or school during the day but home in the evenings. The batteries store energy generated during the day, ready to use after dark. With this type of system, it is possible to produce enough electricity to power the home, depending on the size of the array and battery storage.
