Monocystalline, Silicone PV Installers for 1kW, 2kW and 3 kW Systems
Monocrystalline Silicone PV Panels
There several types of solar panels available that are constructed from solar cells made from various semiconductor materials. Each type of solar panel has its own benefits and suitability for different applications. Monocrystalline silicone PV panels achieve the highest efficiency ratings out of all types of solar panel. Monocrystalline silicone is a semiconductor that is able to convert sunlight into electricity by using the photovoltaic effect which is also displayed by polycrystalline solar panels. Photons from the sun are absorbed by the semiconductor material which reacts by discharging electrons in DC form. The DC energy can be used to power certain electronic devices but residential and commercial appliances will require AC voltage to work. The best silicon PV installers should be able to design and fit a solar panel system that is able to convert the DC voltage in to an AC system and should be more than capable of installing 1kW, 2kW and 3kW systems.
Installing 1kW and 2kW Systems
Finding installers of 1kW and 2kW solar panel systems in the UK should not be a difficult job and they should be able to supply a system that can also earn you cash from the UK government Feed in Tariff which will pay up to 16p/kWh of solar electricity generated. A 1kW monocrystalline silicone PV system should cost you around £6,000 to install and earn you around £5,000 for the entire period that the Feed in Tariff scheme pays out for which is currently 20 years. A 2kw solar system will cost around £9,500 from reputable silicone PV installers and can earn around £10,000 over 20 years.
3kW System Installations
A typical 3kW installation will cost around £11,000 with the possibility to earn around £55,000 over the course of the 20 year Feed in Tariff or FIT scheme. The one prerequisite that is absolutely necessary for you to earn cash profits from FITs regardless of system size, is the MCS accreditation of the installer/supplier. Only those solar panel installers accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) can supply or install solar panels able to earn cash from FITs. On the face of it solar panels may seem expensive, but when you calculate the savings on electricity bills and the thousands to be earned from FITs, they start to look like real cash generators.
Silicone PV Installers
Finding the best PV installers that are MCS accredited should be a lot easier if you use the services of an experienced solar panel comparison and advice website. Comparison and advice sites specialize in helping those looking for solar panel systems, to find reputable installers with enough experience to effectively design and install high quality monocrystalline silicon PV panels. Do not settle for second best and never let an inexperienced PV panel installer to get anywhere near your roof as they could cause more harm than good and could potentially be dangerous. Monocrystalline silicon PV panel installation requires highly skilled electricians with special training in solar electrical work and who adhere to the necessary UK electrical safety standards.
