Solar is the fastest and most generous source of new energy in the world – its not going anywhere and it is becoming even more popular! Did you know, the sun strikes more energy to Earth in an hour than the entire world consumes in a year?
Its an astonishing amount of power and when you think about your roof and all the suns energy hitting your tiles, think about how it could be going into your very own solar system instead, and providing all your energy requirements!
We understand that many people have found solar information to be rather complex, containing a lot of industry jargon. But at SolarCentric, we avoid this – and after reading this short blog, we are confident that you will come away with a better understanding of how the system works and feel reassured about how the solar panels can benefit you:
With solar, it’s not about the instant return, its about the long term goal. When you invest in solar you can be bricks and mortar with your property and get the panels to pay you. It is said that properties that have solar sell for 14% more – by over £30,000 based on the average UK house.
So when you upgrade your property with solar panels – you hold value, an asset and with more people investing in solar, fossil fuels, oil and coal will just remain in the earth and cause no more harm.
The UK is undergoing a big change in how we power our homes and businesses and this is your chance to play a part. At SolarCentric, we provide an educational, inspiring and worry-free experience for our clients with our no-pressure sales approach. Our highly skilled design team will always guide you in the right direction when it comes to your personalised system, we can assist you in any project size and will ensure that you understand all the information we present and hand over to you.
If you’re environmentally conscious and looking to make green home improvements, our products page showcases our wide range of sustainable systems to view at your convenience.

Two is better than one, and battery storage is always a great way to compliment any Solar PV system. Batteries are emerging as one of the key solutions to integrate efficient carbon-neutral systems for any home or business, because when there is excess power in the property, the battery will store it ready to be used at a later date. This can really reduce your grid dependency and your electricity bill.
Batteries are paving the way towards an ozone-friendly future
As the world starts transitioning away from fossil fuels, we acknowledge and appreciate the initial stages of its invention. The first real development of batteries date as far back as 250 BC, known as the Baghdad Battery. Fast forward to the 21st century, batteries primarily powered our phones and computers but with advance technology they are now powering our cars, homes and businesses too.
It’s a great leap forward and we have certainly come a long way with the ever-growing development in batteries. With the correct battery and solar combination, you can really make a difference to the environment and enjoy an abundance of free/low-cost solar electricity, especially in the summer going into winter when solar doesn’t particularly perform as well. Now with advance technology, batteries can control the time for when you buy your energy physically from the grid which is a great function to have as lots of energy companies offer cheap night-time tariffs. Note that buying low-cost energy when carbon intensity on the grid is low is a profitable gain, a great way to control your energy cost and to reduce your carbon footprint.
Most batteries are software controlled, meaning that as technology improves, the battery does not become out-dated. This is really important as technology is moving quickly and in some parts of the UK, energy providers are already trialling different ways to use batteries. These trials include load balancing and optimising when you buy and sell energy from the grid.
Overall, these are worthy trials because wholesale energy prices fluctuate throughout the day typically increasing at peak times and reducing at night. In the future, we are likely to see a more renewable-fuelled world with supporting software that further utilises batteries.
