Solar Energy Systems - An Overview

The Solar energy market can appear to be a very confusing place and on first glance extremely complicated, but in truth for the user it isn't really that complex. It's ultimately all about the benefits it can deliver to both the energy consumer and the environment.

In essence a Solar energy system is about harnessing the sun's immense natural power source to either convert sunlight to electricity using silicon cells or its thermal energy for direct water heating, both with the objective of not only saving money but of course the environment.

AMI Solar Technologies provide a Solar PV Home Energiser Solution using BP Solar photovoltaic panels to generate your own electricity and connect into the grid because we believe it the best long term offering and enables users to gain both maximum energy and cost benefits.

The UK Government have committed to drecreasing our dependence on fossil and nuclear fuels and have legislated a Feed In Tariff, "FIT" obliges energy companies to pay a premium price to you, the energy generator, for all the energy produced by your solar system, whether it is consumed at your property or exported back to the grid.
