Solar PV

Want to join the renewable revolution and upgrade your home to protect against future energy hikes?

Solar PV is one solution to achieving energy independence, helping you transition into a renewable technology. Zing has a long heritage in solar and we can advise you on the best way to generate free energy and save money.

What is solar PV?

Solar PV (Photovoltaic) are panels fixed to the roof or other outlying area of a property, allowing homeowners to power their homes through the most renewable source of all – the Sun.

How does solar PV work?

These panels use solar radiation, converting it into useable electricity in the home, powering your appliances and lighting. The solar panels do not require direct sunlight in order to work and can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day.

The benefits

  • Lower energy bills – Once you have installed your solar panels, you can start harnessing sunlight and converting it into electricity is free of charge!
  • Receive income – Generate your own energy and receive income through the Government’s Feed In Tariff, plus sell excess energy back to the grid.
  • Reduce energy bills and CO2 – Generating solar electricity not only reduces your energy bills, it also significantly reduces your carbon footprint. Over a 20-year period, the income you receive and the money saved could be considerable.
  • Energy protection – Solar PV provides your home with a sustainable living solution, helping to protect you against rising energy costs.

Solar panel installation

Zing Energy started out as a solar PV company and we have fitted solar panels on homes throughout the country for many years. Each job starts with a consultation with one of our trusted energy saving experts.

For the majority of our clients, we use scaffolding to install the solar panels on the roof. The entire process takes just several hours (the time it will take you to watch a film), during which our team of roofers attach fixing brackets to a roof’s rafters. The solar panels are then clamped on to the fixing brackets and you are able to start generating power instantly.

What do solar PV systems cost?

Solar PV varies in price due to the size and type of the system, plus the structure and style of the property that the panels are being installed on to. Simply contact Zing Energy and one of our engineers will visit your property and provide you with a detailed quote, discussing all options available.

Solar PV funding and grants

The great news is you can get your solar PV system installed with little to no upfront cost via a PPA agreement. A low electricity rate is agreed for a period of 20 years, providing savings of up to £200 per year. You won’t receive the export tariff, but you will benefit from significantly cheaper energy bills.

The Smart Export Guarantee is a way of generating cash for your solar by exporting it to the grid. Solar is covered under this scheme, along with other renewable energy solutions. It replaces a previous scheme known as the feed-in tariff and comes into effect on 1st January 2020. Zing Energy works closely with some of the biggest energy suppliers across the country and can advise if this form of funding is available to you.
