Choosing a greener future with Solar PV

As a home improvement company Trade Frames are at the forefront of energy saving with A+ energy rated windows and highly insulated solid roof conservatories and glazed extensions. 

Over the past few years we’ve had a lot of customers ask us questions about adding solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to their home. We soon realised that there was a lack of practical expert advice available on this important subject. So we teamed up with domestic electrical expert McGuinness Electrical to work with us, to provide the same trusted advice and installation service to homeowners across North Wales and Cheshire for renewables, as we do for other home improvement products. 

As an experienced solar energy company, we specialize in designing and installing high-quality solar PV systems for residential properties. Our goal is to empower homeowners with clean and sustainable energy solutions, helping them reduce their carbon footprint, save on energy costs, and contribute to a greener future.  

Read on to discover the benefits of solar PV and why we are the trusted choice for solar installations in North Wales and Cheshire. 

Why Choose Solar PV?

Solar PV systems are a smart investment that offer numerous benefits for homeowners and the environment. Here are some compelling reasons to consider solar PV for your home: 

Energy Savings: Solar PV systems generate electricity from sunlight, which means you can significantly reduce your reliance on traditional grid electricity. By producing your own clean energy, you can lower your monthly energy bills and enjoy long-term savings. 

Environmentally Friendly: Solar energy is renewable and produces no greenhouse gas emissions or air pollution. By choosing solar PV, you actively contribute to mitigating climate change and preserving the environment for future generations. 

Energy Independence: With a solar PV system, you win back energy independence and reduce your vulnerability to rising electricity prices. Generate your own electricity and protect yourself against future electricity rate increases. 

Get Paid for Generating Electricity: In the summer months or when you are generating more energy than you’re using, it can either be stored by adding a battery, or sold back to the National Grid. Your energy provider can link you into the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), so you can choose to sell your excess electricity. 

Long-Term Investment: Solar PV systems have a long lifespan, typically ranging from 25 to 30 years, with minimal maintenance requirements. Installing solar panels adds value to your property and can provide a solid return on investment.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How much will a solar PV system cost? 

The cost of a solar PV system varies based on factors such as system size, equipment quality, and installation complexity. We offer personalized quotes after assessing your specific requirements. 

Can solar panels work on cloudy days? 

Yes, solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy days, although their output may be reduced compared to sunny days. Solar PV systems are designed to capture diffused sunlight and convert it. 

Are there any grants or incentive for installing Solar PV? 

There are often Government backed grants available for installing solar panels, these are often administered by the Local Authority. We suggest checking that the grant has official Government Local Authority backing to ensure that it is a credible scheme.
