Generating electricity from the suns power is not a new concept and as the world becomes more desperate in its thirst for clean energy, the costs of self-generating your own energy has dramatically reduced. Established in 2008 and based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, The Solar Shed ltd can supply and arrange the installation of Solar PV systems for domestic homes UK wide.
How has Solar PV developed
- The first patent at the US Patents office for a cell that generates electricity was registered in 1888
- NASA started the first use of Silicon Solar Cells in the late 1950’s so they could power Satellites in space
- Telstar, the first solar powered satellite was launched in 1962 and in 1967 Soyuz 1 became the first manned spacecraft. It was powered by solar cells
- 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.
- A typical 4kw solar system in 2009/2010 would have set you back anything up to £24,000 The same system today, less than £6,000
- An unshaded roof could provide over 4500kwh of electricity a year. Use all of it and you could save as much as £700 a year. EVERY YEAR
