Photovoltaic (Solar PV)


Lowe and Oliver - MCS Approved Solar PV Specialists

Why not arrange an appointment so that we can come and explain to you the benefits of Photovoltaic (Solar PV) systems.

Why not save money on the cost of Electricity and help reduce the carbon foot print at the same time!

Savings can be considerable - around 1 tonne of CO2 a year. A 2.2 kWp system can generate around 40% of a household's yearly electricity needs. If the system is eligible to receive the Feed In Tariff it could generate savings and income of around £900 per year.


Photovoltaic is commonly known as PV solar panels which produce electricity from daylight through a process called photovoltaic streaming. "Photo" refers to light and "voltaic" to electricity. Photons are converted to electrons and streamed into your power supply and any surplus energy produced can be sold. Photons can penetrate clouds allowing the system to generate even on overcast days

Feed in tariffs scheme (FITS) pays up to a generous 41p per Kwh. The new feed in tariff is available from April 2010 and open for 3 years, so be quick to take advantage. Be aware that the new feed-in prices will be reduced or digressed, in annual stages as take up is increased. So act fast.

Due to government legislation the above tariff is due to change on the 12th December 2011.
