Energy experts BSOLAR have become one of the first companies to install a new revolutionary solar panel in the UK.
The company based in Halsall, Lancashire has recently completed a job in Lancashire, installing Sanyo HIT panels, a new super efficient solar panel which can generate up to 50% more energy than a normal panel.
The Sanyo HIT panels combine two of the best solar technologies available and Peter Bladen, Director at BSOLAR expects these new panels to be a big success with homeowners across the UK.
He said: “These new panels are a break through in technology, they are very energy efficient so less panels are needed which is useful for people who have a limited amount of roof space available. They also perform better under less than ideal circumstances, so are incredibly super-efficient.”
Peter added: “We have seen a huge increase in people across the North West wanting to have solar panels installed which has been boosted by the government’s Clean Cash Back scheme and we are expecting this growth to continue with the introduction of the Sanyo HIT panels.”
The government’s scheme rewards homeowners who generate electricity from renewable sources by paying them 43.3p per unit that is generated from the panels.
Peter said: “It pays to be green. An average solar panel system costs around £10,000 and under the government scheme this will pay for itself in less than 10 years, then continue to give you a guaranteed income of around £1200 a year.
“The income is based on energy generated, irrelevant of its use in the home. This means that the homeowner will get paid for making electricity and will also get free electricity during the day all the time that the solar panels are generating power.”
Peter added: “The government are presently reviewing the current scheme and my advice to anyone considering purchasing solar panels is to make hay while the sun shines! If you get panels installed in the near future you will still qualify for the generous feed in tariff rate which is guaranteed for 25 years.”
