Snapshot of a large residential solar panel design (Hove, South-facing).
In December this array will still generate 27% of the amount of electricity it would produce in June.
Solar panels alone will not completely replace your electricity bills, instead, we aim to reduce them as much as possible. Switching to renewable energy can save you thousands of pounds, making that initial lump sum payment one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
Our most cost-efficient solar and battery storage options are available for as little as £7,600 but can save you over £26,000 over a 25 year period (with inflation rates taken into account). Given the recent energy price rises, savings could be considerably higher.
These renewable energy systems can reduce your CO2 emissions significantly, investing in our 6.1kW solar panel solution, can be equivalent to planting 736 trees in Hove.
If you want to get even more out of the Hove sun, we recommend investing in a larger battery that allows you to store more power, a battery is also able to top up at night during off-peak rates to be used throughout the day, perfect for the winter when your solar array will not be able to fully charge your batteries.
Hove is a very efficient location when it comes to generating energy from the sun. The seaside city receives some of the most sunlight in the UK. Brighton & Hove receives 9.1% more light than Devon according to MCS.
Solar panels need light to be effective, they will silently create electricity whenever there is daylight. Irradiance (light) levels will change throughout the year so the amount of electricity generated will also fluctuate. A good rule of thumb is that solar panels will generate the equivalent of 20-25% of their summer output in the winter.
Investing in renewable energy is a great way to cut down on CO2 emissions caused by the generation of electricity. Investing in some of our most efficient solar panel solutions here in Hove could have the same environmental impact as planting 736 trees.
Brighton & Hove is one of the sunniest cities in the UK, reaching lows of 7°C in the January months, and average heat of 22°C. This is the perfect weather for producing energy from sunlight, and by investing in some of our battery solutions you can store this energy to be used over night or to assist in providing energy in the winter months.
More and more people are switching to renewable energy every day, as it has so many fantastic benefits. You could significantly reduce your electricity bill, even eliminate it during brighter months. It is also fantastic for the environment. Hove is a great location for solar panels due to the fantastic weather.
