Solar PV (Photovoltaic) Systems
Sometimes confused with solar hot water, Solar P.V. is quite different.
At SAS & Trewartha’s Plumbing and Heating Ltd we are able to assist and link in with other companies to install solar P.V. which is Solar electricity. This is a flat plate in or on the roof where the sun reacts with the special plates to generate electricity. Growing in popularity here in the UK and with convert ratios of 10%, the P.V. panel surface is larger than that of solar water.
The cost of this type of system is high and manufacturers currently advise that the payback period for solar P.V systems is 40-80 years. Therefore we would suggest that this type of system is purely an energy consideration not a financial option. However, here at SAS & Trewartha’s Plumbing and Heating Ltd we envisage that future changes in Europe and government policies will greatly reduce the time of pay back. We are currently involved in project which we have been advised will have a payback period of only 14years.
If you are interested in such systems, please contact us – we will be pleased to put you in touch with companies specialising in this area.
