Photovoltaic systems – how they really work

 

This is my fourth and final newsletter about my pv panels. The 2.22 kWp system was predicted to generate 1840 kWh of electricity but thanks to a wonderful spring has generated 2040 kWh. So the payments we will receive for the first year are as follows

 

2040 x 41.3 pence = £842.52

50% x 2040 x 3 pence = £ 30.06

making a total of £873.12

 

 

The amount of electricity we have used has dropped dramatically.

 

Last year 2/06/09 – 31/05/10 we used 5739 kWh

This year 2/06/10 – 31/05/11 we used 3571 kWh

Saving a total of 2168 kWh

On our tariff that is a saving of approximately £200

 

On a green note the panels have saved 877 kgs of CO2.

 

Conclusion – yes they work brilliantly.

 

Since having the system installed over a year ago, prices of photovoltaic panels have dropped considerably, so anybody who was put off by the high cost might like to obtain further quotes now.
