Solar PV

Solar panels capture energy from the sun and convert it into electricity that you can use in your home.

By installing solar panels – also known as solar photovoltaics (PV) – you can generate your own renewable electricity with little running costs and carbon emissions.

Solar panels are made from layers of semi-conducting material that creates a flow of electricity when light shines on it. They don’t need direct sunlight and can work on cloudy days, and are normally grouped together into an array that comes in various shapes and sizes that can be fitted directly on to your roof or on the ground.

Solar tiles work in the same way but are designed to be used in place of ordinary roof tiles and are a good option when panels are not appropriate for aesthetic or planning reasons.

By combining solar PV with a battery storage system, you can maximise efficiencies by storing the electricity produced for use when it is needed most.

Solar PV is a renewable energy source that is naturally replenished from the sun and is a great way to reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and lower your carbon footprint.

Green Home Systems is accredited to PAS2030 – the top energy efficiency industry standard. We have the qualifications and experience to install your renewable system so you can save energy, reduce carbon emissions and lower your energy bills.

What Funding is Available to me?

Home Energy Scotland ('HES') is funded by the Scottish Government and run by the Energy Saving Trust. So if you don't qualify for ECO funding there is still a lot of help available. This funding is a mix of interest free loans and cashback (effectively a grant). The maximum amount available per home is £38,000 as shown below.

LoanCashbackTotal
Maximum Renewables Funding£9,000£8,000£17,000
Maximum Energy Efficiency Insulation Funding£9,000£6,000£15,000
Maximum Energy Storage (Battery)£6,000£0£6,000

This funding is not means test - the only qualification is that you must own your own home and be located in Scotland.
