Learn about PV solar panels and EV-charging.
Solar panels today
enhanced with PV.
Power My Home is an introduction to domestic solar panels.
Go your own way by generating electricity, hot water and possibly EV mileage for free. PV solar panels enhanced by EV-charging, heat converters and battery storage.
These technologies offer three-decades of loyal service, and that's why we've helped people adopt since 2004.
It's good to know.
PV solar panels.
PV solar panels operate on most cloudy days in the UK. Monocrystalline photovoltaic running alongside useful plugins is the most popular type of solar technology today.Learn more
PV & EV-charging.
PV solar panels bring the power of the sun to your electric vehicle. This modern addition brings free motoring-mileage to motorists looking to shield themselves from the rising costs of this crazy world.Learn more
"PV and EV's work brilliantly together to free homeowners from the rising costs of the 21st-century."
Contrary to general belief, PV solar panels do generate on most cloudy days in the UK and actually, work more efficiently in more moderate temperatures and climates.
Now that's cleared-up, let's get down to it.
Revolutionising the way you think about energy is paramount in today's world, and PV's increased demand globally has demonstrated that others feel the same too.
Traditional suppliers can only guarantee 'black energy' prices for a couple of years.
Additionally, EV-charging is a motivation for installing PV solar panels too.
It's always been this way; until one day it isn't.Learn more
PV is all grown-up today with export tariff options.
In January 2020, the Smart Export Guarantee launched in the UK for PV adopters to sell surplus power generated through their solar panels.
For solar pioneers, this was terrific news as traditional energy companies now 'compete' for real green energy on the open energy market.
Fantastic for self-generators and the energy industry.
This policy change means a healthier return-on-investment, especially when PV solar panels are working alongside other additional plugin's and with a long-term outlook.
Solar panels are exciting again.Learn more
The costs of installing solar panels have massively decreased over the last decade.
In 2004, I first witnessed an extensive 4kW PV solar system getting installed for over fifteen grand without any of the plugin benefits that we see today.
Today, a similarly sized-system is 75% cheaper than what the earliest solar pioneers paid.
The significant decrease in price comes down to larger-scaled and more efficient manufacturing processes, so panel price's and other equipment costs make-up 60% of costs.
Installation costs and miscellaneous represent 40% of the final price of installing.
Interestingly, return-on-investment is much better today thanks to plugin extras. I would also argue that the pride of installing is priceless.
The best purchase you'll make this century.Learn more
The original reason I developed Power My Home back in 2004 was to tackle this very issue. I wanted to guide the earliest adopters towards ethical installers.
Back then, the early solar industry was a minefield of over-charging, dodgy salespeople, questionable technologies and careless installers.
Today, I'm happy to report that the modern solar industry proudly has the world's highest standards of building compliance.
From the sales process to the installation day and beyond, your peace of mind is assured with BRE, MCS and sales regulations that demonstrate the solar industry today is all grown-up.Learn more
