Solar energy is one of the most popular forms of renewable energy providing a clean source of energy and best of all – it’s free.

Our Solar Panel systems are delivering a strong return on investment on homes and offices across Shropshire and surrounding counties providing free electricity and lower carbon footprint for families and business owners.

You don’t necessarily need a south facing roof for your Solar PV panels to generate energy and income – they can happily generate electricity in light cloud too. Our Solar PV energy survey will provide you with an idea of how much electricity your solar panels may generate.

Your Solar PV panel converts sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. This is then converted into alternating current (AC) by the use of a solar inverter.

So if you’re looking for Solar panel companies in Shropshire, come and talk to Severn Valley Renewables today.


What is the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG)?

The Smart Export Guarantee is a government initiative overseen by Ofgem. All of the UK’s largest energy suppliers are legally obliged to offer the SEG, a growing number of smaller suppliers have also begun to offer this concession.

Essentially, a fee is paid per kWh for excess energy that is generated by renewable technologies after enough has been generated to power the home. Renewable technologies may include:

  • Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.
  • Domestic wind turbines.
  • Domestic hydroelectricity.
  • Biomass energy from Anaerobic Digestion (AD).
  • Micro-combined heat and power (Micro-CHP).

If you have installed PV solar panels or any other renewable energy generation technology in your home, but have not registered for the Smart Export Guarantee, you’re effectively pumping your excess energy into the grid for free. Unless you’re living completely off the grid, why not offset the cost of the energy you use with the SEG?

Who is the SEG for?

The SEG is for any household that has invested in any of the technology types listed above. The only stipulation is that installations must be based in the UK and have a maximum capacity of 5MW, or up to 50kW in the case of Micro-CHP.

This means that virtually anyone who generates their own energy, but is still connected to the grid, can benefit from the SEG.
