Solar Energy? What's that?


Solar energy, by its abundance, is without a doubt the energy of our future.

Solar radiation, captured by photovoltaic cells, is turned into electricity. The electricity production will be self-consumed or redirected to the grid.

Building a greener world

Renewable energy produces no waste or polluting emissions, no greenhouse gases and releases no CO2 into the atmosphere; in theory, it is inexhaustible. Fossil fuels such as gas, oil and coal have been millions of years in the making.  However, at our current rate of consumption they are being very quickly consumed.

Moreover, climate change and global warming are being aggravated by the increasing output of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. This situation led to COP21, which established long term measures aimed at protecting the planet.

Solar energy is inexhaustible, which undoubtedly makes it the energy of the future.

The global UK energy policy is to reach 20% of UK electricity needs covered by renewable by 2020.

Solar energy: a clean, infinitely abundant energy

The sun provides the ultimate renewable energy. Today, solar energy is used to produce heat (solar thermal energy) and electricity (solar photovoltaic energy). The United Kingdom has made the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions a priority objective and has implemented measures to harness this energy efficiently. That is why measures to promote photovoltaic power have been implemented. This is a resource that must be developed without delay.

Creating electricity from sunlight

Photovoltaic electric power is produced from sunlight. This technology converts solar energy to electrical energy using solar cells. Photovoltaic solar energy is electrical energy produced from solar radiation. These cells convert the sun’s rays to electrical direct current, which is then converted to 220 V alternating current by an inverter. The electricity produced is then self consumed or redirected to the public grid. You will then collect an income in return for your electricity production.

Step by Step

A turnkey installation

We can carry out a free photovoltaic estimate for you. At a later date, our staff can visit your home and carry out a feasibility study for your project. By evaluating the sunlight conditions, the tilt angle and the orientation of your roof, they can decide on the position of your solar panels and produce an assessment. An estimate of the annual earnings that might be generated by your installation is also included with this review.

If your project is eligible, administrative procedures will be initiated with your local authorities. Once these procedures are completed, our partner technicians will carry out your installation. The selection of the individuals is based on regulatory guidelines and their sector-specific qualifications. Depending on the size and the configuration, your home installation can take between 24 to 48 hours.

When you connect your installation to the national grid through our dedicated service, energy production can begin. Depending on your preferences, you can use the electricity you produce to save money on your energy bills, or else sell it back to the grid: in the case of the latter, a regulated sales contract will take immediate effect for a legally guaranteed period of time.

An unparalleled level of assurance

With our guarantees, insurance and certifications there is no risk to you. 
UK ENERGY SOLUTION gives you the benefit of all the insurance policies and qualifications required for photovoltaic installations. In addition, you benefit from the appropriate ten-year insurance policy for roof-mounted photovoltaic installations and services. UK Energy Solution’s 10 year liability policy covers our work for up to £10million. You will find all our official certificates in the Downloads section located in the top right corner of our website.
