Solar Photovoltaic

Generating electricity harnessed from sunlight provides an inexhaustible source of energy for our needs. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panel systems offer one of the cleanest sources of green energy available. The beauty of solar PV panels is due to their solid-state structure they have no moving parts therefore virtually no maintenance is required. The electrical output from every panel is guaranteed for 20-25 years with a typical life expectancy of 50 years. 

Radical Energy installs Schott Solar and Sanyo (HIT) PV panels due to their technical innovation and manufacturing excellence. Both panels give superior mechanical and impact robustness compared to other panels available. We can fit solar PV panels retrospectively to existing properties or to new buildings. Systems can be either roof-mounted or integrated into the roofline giving a smooth, more discrete profile.  

Feed In Tariff (FIT) 

Most of our installed solar photovoltaic systems are “grid-tied” providing a means for the customer to export electricity back to the National Grid for a financial return. With the advent of the Government’s Feed In Tariff (FIT), previously known as the Clean Energy Cashback Scheme, introduced recently, homeowners and business users qualify for very healthy returns on their investment for the next 20 years. Please browse through our page explaining FIT’s for further information on how this scheme operates. 

Grid-Tied Solar PV Systems 

With no batteries used to store electrical energy our “grid-tied” systems offer an efficient way to use the electricity generated without the negative environmental impact. To meet the energy demand of the building electricity can be used directly from the solar PV panels or seamlessly imported or exported from the Grid.  

For homeowners our solar PV installations provide a green energy alternative to traditional fossil fuel-derived electricity. For commercial systems solar PV panels are a high visibility way of boosting your environmental business credentials, sending the right message to your customers.
