Solar Systems will be at the Umberleigh event on Wednesday 1 August to provide information about the benefits of solar power and tips on how to be environmentally friendly.

The company specialises in the design and installation of solar photovolaic (PV) and thermal panels.

Established in 2008 the Solar Systems has worked with homeowners and businesses across the South West.

Phil Grabham, Managing Director of Solar Systems, said: ‘We are delighted to have been invited to the show.

‘In the current economic climate, where people are looking for alternative, eco friendly ways to power their homes and businesses, solar panels can be a great option and we will be happy to answer any questions people may have.’

Phil added: ‘During recent months the cost of solar panels has dropped, giving a financial return on the investment of around 10-12% which is tax free, indexed and guaranteed for 20 years.

‘The electricity generated is free and the Government’s Feed in Tariff pays for each unit that is produced.

‘Any surplus electricity will get exported back to the grid for an additional sum.

‘Solar PV panels do not require direct sunlight to work. Even on a cloudy day electricity will be generated, which is a plus considering the unpredictable weather in the UK.

‘With energy prices increasing, PV panels are a great way to cap inflation and reduce your greenhouse emissions.’

The North Devon show will take place at Umberleigh Barton Farm in Umberleigh, North Devon on Wednesday 1 August from 8am to 6pm.

Tickets available in advance or at the gate.
