1. Definitions:

“Energysavingwales.org.uk” means energysavingwales.org.uk/

“You/Your” means you, the user of this Energysavingwales.org.uk.

Leicester's energy comes mostly from the consumption of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas (called fossil fuels because they are the remains of plants and animals which lived on the Earth millions of years ago). This uses up finite resources, and the carbon burned in fuel forms carbon dioxide, the main gas blamed for global warming. Fuel combustion also creates other air pollutants.

Many people don't realise the adverse environmental effects of excessive energy consumption, or that some traditional energy sources will soon run out.

“User Information” refers to information provided by you via the Energysavingwales.org.uk

Fuel poverty damages peoples' quality of life and imposes wider costs on the community. Many vulnerable members of society will die this winter from the effects of fuel poverty.

“We/Us/Our” means Energy Saving Trust, its appointed web engineers and its licensor Defra

UK Solar PV Benefits & Savings

Solar PV Cost/Savings example

This example is based on a 50kwp system with 30 degree pitch in Swindon with no grid upgrades and straight forward access. (2010)

System size: 50 kW
System cost: £75,000 +VAT
Income from FiT: £225,822 (assuming 3% RPI increase on 15.2p/kWh tariff)
Energy Savings: £106,142 (assuming unit cost = 11p/kWh)
Export Tariff Income: £15,469 (assuming inflation of 5%)
Total Profit (exc. install cost): £272,433

Benefits of Solar PV systems

    • Lower electricity bills
    • Cut carbon emissions
    • Benefit from Feed-in-tariff for 25 years
    • Cut carbon emissions
    • Improve efficiency of building
    • Sell electricity back to the grid to earn the Export tariff

    Solar PV for Farmers

    Solar can help farmers reduce energy costs and generate income at the same time. A solar PV installation can substantially reduce energy costs, especially for farms running power-hungry equipment during daylight hours. Through the feed-in-tariff you can expect a return on investment of around 8% for a 25 year period, plus the savings on your electricity costs.

    As a Solar PV specialist and accredited installer since 2004, we can help expedite planning applications and complete fit outs on permitted developments quickly and efficiently.

Impact of Participating

The difficulty of engaging with people has meant that Bryony isn’t sure how accurately they’re sticking to their pledges. “I’m hoping that the new scheme where you can make your own pledges will improve things” she says. “It’s a good move for this audience where people are probably already doing some of the standard pledges”.

Solar Power

The UK embraces Solar Power

The Government has set targets for the number of UK households that will have installed solar panels to their home. Contrary to popular believe the UK has over 65% of the radiation that Spain receives which is more than enough to guarantee a the function of a Solar PV system. With the Government's feed-in tariff in place that allows an income to be produced from installing solar energy the number of homes that rely soley on solar power is set to rise.Pic
