The climate in the South West of England is influenced by the Azores high pressure system which helps maximise the hours of sunshine received annually in Exeter. Exeter itself enjoys over 1,600 hours of sun each year which is 22% above the UK national average.
The months April to September get the majority of the town's sunshine, averaging over 200 hours each. With an effective solar system in place, the owner of an average three bedroom home in Exeter can achieve minimum savings of around £130 a year on their electricity bill and reduce their carbon footprint by over a ton of CO2.
Solar Installations in Exeter
Studies of solar systems installed in Exeter, such as those on Montgomery Primary School, show that solar panels generate more energy than the buildings require. This means individuals can then sell the excess to the national grid. The high level of solar irradiation in Exeter also helps power much larger buildings.
Indeed, Exeter's Met Offices supercomputers - a great example of this - produce 221,000 kWh of power annually. Furthermore, domestic or commercial solar systems in Exeter tend to achieve a payback time of 7.5 to 8.5 years.
