The benefits of PV solar panels and the joy of adopting these technologies today

"Power My Home is a by-product of my enthusiasm for PV solar panels after seeing the benefits for myself. We empower you through the process of installing your own."

Sunshine technology. Photovoltaics work even on cloudy days in the UK.

Sunshine technology. Each sq/m of your roof receives between 900-1400 kWh a year.

Sunshine technology. PV solar panels could also heat your hot water.

Sunshine technology. Benefit day and night with battery storage (optional).

Sunshine technology. Future-proof with PV to EV charging.

Sunshine technology. A working lifespan measured in decades not years.

Sunshine technology. Only 5% VAT rate.


Energy consumers are going there own way.

The world is changing fast, and that's why I love my PV panels.

When I first began my solar journey, you needed two separate systems to produce electricity and hot water - not today.

PV to hot water converters can be installed alongside photovoltaics to use the surplus electricity to power the immersion heater and heat your hot water and even charge your EV vehicle for free.

A thermal store tank will allow you to use multiple renewable technologies for both hot water heating and space heating.

Evacuated tubes and flat-plate solar heating were traditionally used, but now photovoltaics are preferred by both installers and users.

Additionally, the latest advancements in battery storage devices are making PV technology a great prospect.

Reasons why people install solar panels in the UK.









We love solar panels.



A Beginners guide to solar panels

Do I need planning permission?

No. From the 6th of April 2008, planning permission will not be required for most solar panel installations, unless you live in a listed building. Even then, most councils will allow solar panels in most cases.

Is my roof compatible?

Most homes in the UK are suitable for solar panels. If you have a South, South East, Southwest or East and West facing roof space un-obscured by shading, then yes. Your internal plumbing/electrics will need to be checked through an on-site survey before the installation process begins.

Check suitability

Any grants or incentives in the UK?

Grants are no longer available but have been replaced by the feed-in tariff scheme which pays a set amount for every kWh of electricity or heat generated. These apply to any domestic and commercial installation.

Solar panel incentives

Do these work in northern climates?

Even the UK receives 60% of the sun's radiation compared to the equatorial regions. Each square metre of the United Kingdom gets between 900 to 1,300 kWh of energy annually, so this technology does work in northern climates too.

Can I install myself?

In most cases, no, however, if you have 'Part P' electrical and plumbing skills, then it may be possible to install in a daily capacity. DIY flat-plate, PV and evacuated tube kits are available.

DIY installing can work out much cheaper. However, you will not be eligible for the generous feed-in tariff schemes currently available. All eligible installations must be carried out and certified, by an accredited MCS solar panel installer to qualify.

Are solar panels suitable for my property?

Solar technology is not a one size fits all. Installations for both heating and electric can be complicated, due to many issues such as roof access, layout and internal factors. Solar panel technologies vary in size, so potential installers will need to ask a few easy questions about your property to establish your options and costs.

A guide to EV & PV charging.

Charge your car with photovoltaics.

Being one step ahead of the crowd is how most people create and hold onto their money. Many people installed PV solar panels because it was a 'sure thing' and they were 'ahead of the crowd'.

Therefore the next logical step is to trade in your old gas guzzler for an EV (electric vehicle) charged for free with your PV solar panels.

Most car manufacturers have EV models nowadays, so once again 'opportunity strikes' to expand your ability to benefit from solar panels with 'free motoring mileage'.

A guide to PV solar panels

Technology that lasts longer than your mortgage.

PV (Photovoltaic) solar panels generate electricity using the sun's rays. 'Photo' refers to the Photons, which hit the panel, and 'voltaic' refers to the volts produced when a chemical reaction takes place within the panel cells.

These panels are divided into two types:

Find local MCS installers. PV solar incentives
Find local MCS installers. Schematics for PV solar panels




Quick facts

Sunshine technology. Sell electricity to the National Grid with grid-connected PV systems. Generate electricity for yourself and export the excess power to the National Grid. Amazingly, you will be paid even if you use the power yourself.

Sunshine technology. You can put the panels together to make a system ranging from a minimum of 1KW going up to a max of 5KW for domestic installations, producing from 750 kWh to 4500 kWh per year.

Sunshine technology. With no moving parts, this lasts for many years with no maintenance required.

Sunshine technology. Once installed, your system will be at your service for 25-30 years in the UK climate.



A guide to solar heating panels

A super-efficient system for water heating.

Flat-plate Solar heating panels and evacuated solar tubes heat up hot water in your hot water tank supplying you with a constant supply of hot water, and in some cases space heating during the daylight hours. You won't need to use your existing boiler in the summer while using it less in the winter months too.

These panels are divided into three types:

Find local MCS installers. Solar heating incentives
Find local MCS installers. Schematics for solar heating panels




Quick facts

Sunshine technology. Evacuated solar tubes are the best performing system, but flat-plate panels are integrated like a Velux window.

Sunshine technology. Solar heating systems require a maintenance service every 3-4 years, but this can be integrated into your installation deal.

Sunshine technology. A more modern thermal storage tank can be fitted to integrate multiple renewable energy sources.

Sunshine technology. Your solar heating system can be at your service for 25-30 years within the UK climate.
