Sustainable technology for your home

Solar PV

Harnessing the power of the sun

Solar PV panels are an eco-friendly way of reducing your electricity bills, providing a sustainable source of energy for your home.

How do solar panels work?

Solar photovoltaic panels use sunlight to create clean energy for your home. Cells across the panels, which are usually made from semiconducting materials like silicon, absorb sunlight and create a flow of electricity that can then be used by your home. Solar PV panels begin producing electricity as soon as they’re installed – even when it’s cloudy.

How does it benefit you?

Clean energy

By utilising the sun, your solar PV panels are an eco-friendly way of powering your home – helping to reduce your carbon footprint.

Low maintenance

With a lifespan of around 20 to 25 years, solar PV panels need little maintenance and benefit from being cleaned by rainfall.

Cutting your energy bills

You will no longer need to solely rely on your energy supplier once installed, enabling you to see immediate drops in your electricity bills.

Live Better with Bellway

Bellway unveiled its Future Home at The University of Salford, an experimental eco house built to trial low-carbon technologies.

The house has been constructed within a chamber at Energy House 2.0, the university’s £16 million research facility which was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The Future Home and the wider Energy House 2.0 project will pioneer new ways to build homes, as well as teaching us how we can live in a more environmentally friendly and cost-conscious way.

Solar PV FAQs

Will there be solar panels fitted on my home?

Solar PV panels are currently being rolled out across many new Bellway developments. Speak with an advisor at your chosen development to find out more.

Is it sunny enough in the UK for solar panels?

Yes! Even when it’s cloudy, solar panels can produce enough electricity for your home.

Will I still need my energy supplier?

Typically, your solar panels will produce enough electricity to offset the fees you pay to your electricity provider, but there are times when your solar panels will not produce electricity (for example, at night) so, depending on your usage, you may still require power from the grid.
