Generating electricity from the suns power is not a new concept and as the world becomes more desperate in its thirst for energy, the costs of self-generating your own energy has dramatically reduced in recent years. The Solar Shed Ltd, based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk can supply and install Solar PV systems for domestic homes UK wide. By generating your own energy, you can greatly increase your own income; you make savings on your bills and get paid for exporting excess energy.
How has Solar PV developed
- The first patent at the US Patents office for a cell that generates electricity was registered in the 1880’s!
- NASA started the first use of Silicon Solar Cells in the 1950’s so they could power Satellites in space
- As fossil fuel prices have increased, more investment has gone into the large scale manufacture of solar cells, hence making it as affordable as it is today.
- Governments around the world have been giving incentives to encourage the take up of low carbon energy since President Carter introduced the first feed in tariff scheme in 1978.
- The UK was the 68th country worldwide to introduce a cash back scheme (FITs) which rewards homeowners and business for generating electricity. Details of the UK’s scheme can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/feed-in-tariffs. We were also the last of the 27 EU members to do so..
- Since the Worldwide introduction of feed in tariffs, solar PV prices have dropped over 75% since 2010.
- In March 2019, the UK FiTs comes to an end for new entrants.
