The Benefits of Installing Solar Panels

With energy costs rising significantly in the past year, now more than ever, many people are considering using renewable energy for their home and businesses. Renewable energy sources can generate their own power, helping to reduce both your carbon footprint and costs. The sun is an incredible power source, accessible throughout daylight hours, and installing solar panels could make a huge difference to both your pockets and the planet.

Solar panels have become the recent trend in renewable energy, with growing numbers of homeowners now installing panels and reaping the benefits of doing so.

Not sure what benefits using solar energy could provide you? Here are some compelling reasons to go solar today…

Help The Environment

Solar is a clean, green, source of energy. Solar panels don’t release any harmful pollutants into the atmosphere, so it’s perfectly safe and environmentally friendly.  Reducing your carbon footprint at home means you’re helping to protect wildlife habitats, communities and economies, that are threatened by our warming planet.

If you’re a business – becoming a greener company and reducing your carbon footprint can really boost a business’s reputation. Solar panels can help significantly reduce your carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. It may also put you one step ahead of the governments growing legislation on curbing emissions, and becoming net zero: decarbonizing our economy.

Reduce Your Electricity Costs

The cost of electricity is at the forefront of everyone’s minds recently, and rightly so with the ever-increasing cost of energy bills. In the last year alone, electricity prices rose 66.7%, and affording these costly bills has become a worry for many home and business owners throughout the UK. With costs continuing to rise, many are considering using less fuel to heat and power their homes.

With solar panels, you can start cutting down your electricity costs from the moment they’re installed. The sun is an incredible power source, accessible to us throughout daylight hours, with no cost to use. This makes solar a low-risk investment with incredible return, that only grows as you use your panels for energy long term. It has the potential to save hundreds of pounds on your electricity bills, as you are generating your own power.

What Should I Consider When Thinking About Installing Solar Panels?


As we all know, solar panels need sunlight in order to generate electricity. This means that, weather dependant, there will be variable amounts of electricity generated for the homes use. It’s important to take this into account when considering an installation. However as long as there is daylight, some energy will still be generated.


It is also important to think about the amount of space you have and its vicinity to uninterrupted sunlight, as heavily shaded areas or tall buildings and trees can impact the panels efficiency. Ideally, the installation should be south facing, but MJ Wallace can assess your area and help you decide on the best spot.
