Is it still possible to make money from solar panels?
Through the Smart Export Guarantee anyone generating their own electricity with a solar PV system – smaller than 5MW – can once again earn money. The scheme works differently from the FIT (Feed In Tariff) in the sense that energy suppliers set their own tariffs.
In addition to SEG (Smart Export Guarantee) payments and significant savings on your energy bills, should you decide to sell your home you can also benefit from added value to your property.
This is because not only are Solar PV systems easy to maintain but they also mean any potential buyer can benefit from lower energy bills for years to come.
A South-facing Roof will Give the Most Benefits
To get the most out of your roof space with solar panels a south-facing roof is ideal.
A household with a southwest facing roof will still get some benefits, but it will be slightly less effective, and you might not get the maximum savings.
Although some shading from other buildings and trees is ok ideally your roof space should be clear from shade between 10 am and 4 pm.
With all these facts together, we can conclude that Solar panels are very much worth installing in 2021.
They can create great savings on energy bills and can go a long way in helping to preserve our planet by reducing our reliance on traditional fossil fuels.
