What is solar power?
Why use solar power?
- Renewable. Solar energy is the one of the most effective sources of renewable energy because of the reliable amount of sun the world gets. The ever-advancing technologies that are emerging will continue to harness this source in better, easier and cheaper ways making solar the fastest growing renewable energy source.
- Clean. The carbon footprint of solar PV (photovoltaic) panels is already quite small and, as the materials used in them are being increasingly recycled, it continues to shrink.
- No permit required. As solar panels are considered 'permitted development' you usually don't need a permit to install them on your roof. There are a few limitations you need to bear in mind before installation.
