Solar power is produced from sun light, it is clean and efficient, solar power is produced by collecting the light from the sun via solar PV panels and converting it to generate electricity. Once your solar panels have been installed you will be able to generate electricity from the power of the sun day in day out with the only exception being during the hours of darkness.
Solar power is environmentally friendly because it is 100% renewable and is not a drain on the earth’s natural resources like oil or coal. There are no pollutants being released in to the atmosphere like burning of oil, no natural resources being used to power our home, no contributing to greenhouse gasses like oil fired power stations.
The only downside with solar powering your home is the initial outlay required to buy and install your solar power system, however the components within a solar power system are extremely reliable with virtually no moving parts to wear, solar power systems once installed are virtually maintenance free.
Thanks to a government backed scheme, UK residents that have a solar power system installed are guaranteed to earn back their investment plus a whole lot more, the UK government has pledged to buy back the solar energy produced for the next 25 years so a solar installation makes good financial sense.
So not only can you generate free electricity day in day out from the sun but a guaranteed income from the electricity as well as part of the "Feed In Tariff" in which you sell back to the national grid any surplus electricity you have produced.
The government is backing the drive in solar power installations by guaranteeing such a high rate of buy back for every kilowatt you produce, these rates will not last long, however the rate you get locked into at the start is fixed for you and is index linked to the RPI every year for the 25 years as well.
Like all technology the cost to install will fall as time goes on however the government guaranteed buy back rates will not remain in available to new installations for much longer.
Solar power is here to stay, and rest assured they can produce energy even on cloudy days which is just as well if you live in the UK.
