Ask an Expert: What Do I Need to Know About Solar Panels?

Stephen Samuel - There are many benefits to installing solar panels on your property, most obviously the reduction in your electricity bills. Depending on the number of panels you fit, they could provide you with at least 50% of the electricity your household needs and any excess you produce is automatically sold to the National Grid. Cue another benefit – the opportunity to earn money from your installation, which can kick in after as little as five years if you have a good-sized system of around 16 panels.
