Our Guide to Solar Energy

Are you considering switching to solar energy but have questions that need answering? You’ve come to the right place. In this FAQ blog post, we want to let you know about the immense benefits and effortless transition of adopting solar energy. We will cover the ins and outs of Solar PV to Battery Storage as well as the significance of the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) – everything you need to know to make an informed decision.

Why Choose Solar PV?

Solar Photovoltaic (commonly known as Solar PV) is a word that is getting more popular – for good reason. But what exactly is it and how can it benefit you? Well, it’s a revolution in energy consumption. By converting sunlight directly into electricity, Solar PV systems offer a sustainable and eco-friendly solution for your energy needs.

Here at CalTech Energy in the Highlands of Scotland, we specialize in first-class Solar PV installations with a commitment to quality, value, and exceptional customer service.

What is Battery Storage and Why is it Important?

Imagine harnessing the sun’s energy during the day and using it at night. Sounds pretty good, right? That’s where Battery Storage comes in. It stores the excess electricity generated by your Solar PV system. This allows you to utilize it when the sun isn’t shining.

When you work with us, our team guarantees you will get the most out of your solar investment. We offer Battery Storage options that are designed to suit various needs – we take your individual situation and preferences into account.

What is MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme)?

Inside the world of solar energy, MCS is a hallmark of quality and reliability. Being part of the MCS scheme means that we meet rigorous standards, which provides you with peace of mind. It’s an assurance that your Solar PV and Battery Storage systems are installed to the highest quality and comply with strict regulations set by the industry. We don’t cut corners!

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar panels work by capturing sunlight and converting it into electricity. These panels are usually installed on your roof, facing the sun to maximize energy capture. With advances in technology, modern solar panels are incredibly efficient and durable. They are a valuable long-term investment that will pay off after time (while being environmentally friendly all at the same time).

What is the Installation Process Like?

Installing solar panels might seem a bit scary or like an overwhelming task, but not when you have a local and experienced team handling the operation. Starting with an initial consultation and ending with final system checks, we take care of every detail, so that you’ll enjoy a smooth and stress-free experience.

How Much Does It Cost?

While the initial cost of Solar PV and Battery Storage systems can be a significant investment, the long-term savings are substantial.

What are the Benefits of Choosing CalTech Energy?

Our customer reviews speak volumes about our commitment to excellence. Happy clients mean we’re happy too! When you choose CalTech Energy, you choose quality, value, and excellent customer service, all backed by positive reviews from satisfied clients.

Is Solar Energy Suitable for Scotland’s Climate?
