What return could I expect from a 4kW system?Lichfield

TOTAL ESTIMATED ANNUAL RETURN £515.00 *
TOTAL EXPECTED RETURN OVER 20 YEARS £10,300.00

* This can be broken down as follows:

– FIT CONTRIBUTION – at 0.0439 p per kWh generated £158.00
– EXPORT CONTRIBUTION – at 0.0485p per kW £87.00
– a reduction in your fuel bill £270.00

This assumes that:

  • The solar panels are mounted at an angle of 45 degrees, facing south with no shading.
  • The property has an EPC certificate of D or above
  • electricity costs 0.15p per kWh
  • This calculation is based on standard figures,and assumes that you use 50pct of the electricity generated and export 50pct back to the Grid

These figures should be used for guidance only.

* Your electricity provider makes these payments to you. Details of this will be available on your suppliers website. Alternatively, visit the official Feed-In Tariff website.

How does it work?

The picture simply explains. The panels (PV Modules) take the sun’s energy and convert this to electricity which is fed back into your home via an ‘inverter’.

Can the panels be installed anywhere?

Yes, where there is available space but their efficiency is affected by their direction toward the Sun and any shading/shadowing.

The panels are best installed facing anywhere between East and West, the nearer to South the better, as more sunlight will reach the panels. In addition, any large trees or chimneys should be taken into consideration for shading when evaluating the sighting of any panels.

What size system can I have?

The panels can be tailored to fit the required size so you can have what ever you like if you have the space, but the Feed-In Tariff changes where you generate more than 4kW.
