PV Solar

Solar panels work by using the energy radiated by the sun and convert it into useable electricity for your home or property.

Some people believe that solar panels only work during the summer, however solar collectors can operate all year round even on cloudy days in the UK. One of the most prolific and successful countries to harness the use of this technology is Germany with a similar climate to that of the UK.

Solar PV Panels

The government is encouraging investment in microgeneration technologies such as solar PV panels, allowing users to sign up with their electricity supplier to gain the the Feed in Tariff (FiT) when installed by a MCS accredited company.

The current rate at which all of the electricity generated by your solar PV panels is paid at 4.25p per kw even if this is consumed by yourself or tenants along with 4.91p per kw exported (50% deemed).

Quantum Energy Systems can save you money and help you do your bit for the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.

Installing photovoltaic solar panels will generate electricity from daylight – even through the winter months – as they do not need direct sunlight! When you generate your own electricity, you are guaranteed to be paid by the government’s approved ‘Clean Energy Cash Back Scheme‘ or ‘Feed in Tariff’ known as (FIT) for 20 years index linked with current inflation rates.

SAVE MONEY BY INSTALLING SOLAR PV

Generation income via the Feed in Tariff (20 year tariff, index linked and TAX Free)

Energy saving on your current electricity bill (by not importing from the grid)

Exported electricity (50% Deemed of total generation of your solar PV system)

Typical Solar Panel Installation Costs

2kW Solar PV System

2kWp System
8x 250watt PV solar panels

Prices from £3200.00 Inc. VAT
(Includes EPC & Scaffolding)

3kW Solar PV System

3kWp System
12x 250watt PV solar panels

Feed in Tariffs can only be claimed if your system has been installed by an MCS accredited installer, Quantum Energy Systems are accredited installers.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)

What is an EPC?

The purpose of an EPC is to record how energy efficient your property is. A Domestic Energy Assessor will survey your property and rate the energy efficiency and CO2 emissions of the building and allocate a value from A to G – A being very efficient and G being very inefficient.

A recommendation report is also produced at the same time which lists measures that can be taken to make the property more energy efficient and achieve a better rating.

We would recommend getting a report done before you think about measures that will improve your property’s rating. We can arrange for the EPC to be done or you can find your own accredited person to undertake the EPC. Either way if you decide to go ahead with an installation by QE Solar we will refund the £55+VAT cost of your EPC.

How Feed in Tariffs work with Energy Performance Certificates

To receive the standard rate Feed in Tariff (FiT) your property will have to meet the energy efficiency requirements to achieve an EPC of band D or better.
If your property is assessed and achieves a lower band of E, F or G you can still fit solar panels, however you will receive the Feed in Tariff at a lower rate of 9p/kWh.

Intelligent Control

A cost effective way to heat your water with surplus energy from your PV solar system. The immerSUN automatically directs any excess generated electricity, not used by the house, to the immersion heater in the hot water cylinder. Click here to find out how this device works.
