More than a million homes now use solar power

 In Solar Panel Systems, Thermodynamics

THE NUMBER of homes which use solar power has reached its million milestone, according to the Solar Trade Association.

What’s more, we think these numbers will inevitably rise.

The figure has been calculated using recent data from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, which shows that around 800,000 homes have now installed solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.

Solar PV technology captures energy from the sun and converts it into electricity.

The Solar Trade Association also estimates an additional 250,000 homes have installed solar thermal panels to provide hot water. Putting these two figures together makes the million mark.

We find that most people tend to associate solar panels with electricity production. Indeed, this is one of the great benefits of using solar energy.

However, did you know that solar energy can be used to meet all your needs in terms of utilities?

Solar PV panels provide electricity, while solar thermal and solar thermodynamic panels can provide your home with hot running water.

Our company is also now seeing a growth in combination solar thermodynamic installations which offer both hot water and central heating.

This system uses reverse thermodynamic technology to convert heat from the atmosphere into hot water.

It works all year round, at low temperatures and during the hours of darkness too.

As solar technology has developed over time, we have reached a point where it now offers a complete home solution.

Homeowners can effectively become self-sufficient, save money and live a greener lifestyle .

One million homes is a fantastic milestone but in the future, we predict that even more people will wake up to the benefits of solar power.
