House with solar panels on its roof

Description

Has solar power sparked your interest?

Adding solar panels to your home contributes to the amount of renewable energy available in the UK, while potentially saving you money on your electricity bill.

When installed in your home, solar panels power your electricals, and any power left over can be either stored (if you have additional storage capacity) or exported to the grid. In the long run, this can lower your electricity bill. The saving depends on how much electricity you normally use, and when you normally run your appliances.

To maximise your savings with solar panels, use your washing machine or dishwasher when the sun is shining rather than before bed.
