How do Photo Voltaic Panels work?

Solar PV Panels are installed on your roof and when the sun's light is captured by the solar cells, DC electricity is generated. The DC electricity is taken to an Inverter which converts the DC to AC, making it suitable for use by any appliance in your home. If you generate excess electricity you can sell the power to the national grid.

Energy Performance Certificate - EPC

An EPC is a document that provides you with an Energy Rating for your home. It also indicates the level of potential you home has to increase it's efficiency. An EPC is a detailed document that includes the following guideline image:


An EPC is a requirement for all houses being sold, rented, bought or houses that own a solar power system.

Level D EPC

In addition to the financial savings of a more efficient home, a Level D or greater EPC certificate allows the home owner to claim the full 21p/ kWh FIT rate for the full 25 year term of your solar panels. If you do not have a Level D EPC, this will reduce the Feed In Tariff you will receive by up to 55%.
