Would you like to reduce your energy bills?
Installing solar PV panels at your home will reduce your energy bills and protect you from rising energy costs. You’ll also receive 20 years of ongoing income from the Government’s Feed-in tariff.
The cost of solar PV has fallen rapidly in recent years and more and more homeowners are discovering its financial benefits.
You can save even more if you pair your solar system with a battery. This will store the energy your system produces but you don’t use (for instance in the day when you’re out), so you can use it later instead of buying energy in from the grid.
It’s important to have your system installed by an expert like SunGift. We’ll discuss your energy needs with you and design and install the most suitable system for you, using the best products available.
We are the most recommended installer on independent energy site, YouGen (www.yougen.co.uk), which ranks installers according to customer feedback.
We‘re a Which? Trusted Trader and we’ve also been named Renewable Energy Installer of the Year 3 times at the South West Green Energy Awards.

- Solar PV panels contain photovoltaic cells
- These absorb light from the sun and convert it to DC electricity
- DC electricity cannot be used directly in the home
- So, the DC electricity flows into an inverter, which converts the current to AC electricity which can be used in the home
- The AC electricity is fed through a meter and into your home’s consumer unit
- The system is set up so that you use the free electricity your system has generated first, before buying in electricity from the grid
- If your panels generate more electricity than you use the excess you’ve generated is fed to the grid, unless you have a battery which will store the energy so you can use it later. To see how energy storage might work for you click here/strong>.
Solar PV systems are currently eligible for the Feed In Tariff, if they’re installed by an accredited company like SunGift. The tariff will be paid to you by your electricity supplier. Under this Government scheme there are several ways you can benefit:
- You will be paid for every unit of electricity your system produces (the generation tariff)
- You will be paid an additional amount for electricity which is generated by your panels and fed back into the National Grid (the export tariff)
- You’ll also make savings on your electricity bills when you use the free electricity generated by your panels
The payments are guaranteed for the lifetime of the Feed-in Tariff and are index-linked so that they increase with inflation each year. They are also tax-free for individuals.
The tariff rate that applies at the time your system becomes eligible for the Feed-in Tariff is the rate that applies for the Feed-in Tariff lifetime and so you are guaranteed set payments for the duration of the Feed-in Tariff.
How can solar PV benefit you?
- Protect yourself from rising electricity bills
- Generate your own electricity for at least 25 years
- Take advantage of a great investment opportunity
- Reduce your carbon emissions and help protect the environment
- Receive an annual income from the Feed-in Tariff
