Being one of the renewable energy sources with the quickest rate of growth for domestic customers, there are presently about one million solar PV systems installed on homes across the UK. A typical domestic system will most likely consist of 10 to 14 solar panels that are connected directly to your home's electrical system, allowing you to use the energy they generate for regular tasks like cooking, cleaning, and entertainment. If there is extra energy, it can be added to the national grid and used to power additional residences. A battery is currently installed with many solar systems. This essentially means that excess energy can be stored for later use. Either a level roof or a sloped roof can accommodate solar panels.
All solar PV systems of 50kw or below, in the UK must be accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS). MCS creates and maintains standards for the certification of products and installations used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources, including solar power. SecurCom Solar are an MCS-accredited company, ensuring you receive a high-quality home solar PV system.
