Are solar panels worth it?
We think they are. By installing solar panels and battery storage at your home, you could see savings of up to £809 a year on your electricity bills. With the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), you can also get money paid back for exporting excess solar energy you generate back to the grid.
Why are solar panels good?
In short, because they could help reduce your carbon footprint, give you greater energy independence and cost less than you might think (You can get a solar panel system from just £5,995).
If you're trying to decide whether to get solar panels, then E.ON have put together some great information, including busting those solar myths and why solar panels are the future. These can help you discover more about solar power and how it's helping us move towards a cleaner energy future.
How do solar panels work?
You've probably seen solar panels on homes and businesses, but have you ever wondered how they work? Well we've got the answer.
Solar panels create energy out of exposure to daylight. The panels are made up of smaller solar cells that are themselves made up of several layers of semi-conductors.
When sunlight hits the solar cells, it creates an electrical current between these layers called direct current energy. With the help of an inverter, the direct current energy is then converted into usable alternating current which is used to power your home.
