Solar panels (PV panels) can last for more than 20 years, if looked after and cleaned you can see more than 25 years!
As solar becomes more desirable, we have seen that they do in fact add value to your home. Most homes with solar panels are valued about 5% more. We would expect this to increase as the demand becomes more and more.
If you have a 4 kW solar panel system on your property, you could produce approximately 2,800 kWh of electricity in a year depending on the weather.
Solar panels are generally low maintenance, and they are built to be self cleaning. Although depending on the angle of installation it is best to keep an eye on them and get them cleaned if necessary.
If you want to sell any unused electricity back to the national grid, you will need to have smart meters installed to your property.
The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is where you are paid for the excess electricity you generate and sell back to the national grid.
