Clique Energy design and install Solar PV systems for commercial and domestic clients across the UK.
Clique Energy design, supply and install solar panels for homes and business across the UK, helping more and more people discover the benefits of generating their own clean energy. As well as installing for homeowners we’re experienced in working with all sectors, including commercial, agriculture and the public sector, and with contractors, architects, planners and community groups.
A solar PV system works using a number of panels (an array), which is normally mounted on the roof. Each solar panel is made up of photovoltaic cells.
When daylight hits the cells it creates an electric field. The brighter the sunlight, the more electricity is produced. This direct-current (DC) electricity then flows to an inverter, which converts it into alternating-current (AC) electricity for you to use.
If you have a solar panel system installed at home, it will automatically feed the power you’ve generated to your appliances, so a lot of the power you use during the day will be free. During the night times, or if you use more energy than you produce, your power supply will switch back to the grid. You won’t notice any disruption or change – just smaller bills.
To make the most of all that free electricity, it’s best to use appliances like dishwashers and washing machines during the day. Solar panel systems can’t store electricity, so if you produce more than you use during the day, any excess will be fed into the national grid for others to use.
We’re not tied to any manufacturer, so are able to recommend the ideal panel for each individual contract. With an emphasis on quality design and engineering, an honest, no-pressure approach to sales and an excellent track record for customer service, we’ve built up an unrivalled reputation in the industry.
Every hour the sun produces enough energy to fulfil the world’s energy needs for a whole year. During this time the world dispenses over 25 billion tonnes of Carbon into the atmosphere through burning fossil fuels. Powering your home with solar power is free and clean, meaning that you use less fossil fuels which in turn will reduce your carbon footprint by around 1 tonne every year.

HOW IT WORKS
THE FEED IN TARIFF
GET PAID FOR THE ENERGY YOU PRODUCE
Your electricity supplier will pay you the current FIT rates for every unit of electricity your system generates, whether you use it in your home or not. Currently the rate for small home installations (below 4 kWp) is 14.38p for every unit (or kWh) you generate.
GET PAID FOR THE ENERGY YOU DONT USE
You probably won’t use all the energy you generate, so the excess is exported into the power grid. Your electricity provider will pay you an extra 4.77p for every unit. Most suppliers can’t meter this, so they assume you’ll use half the units you produce and pay you for the rest.
THE ENERGY PRODUCED FEEDS DIRECT TO THE HOME
Electricity generated by your solar panels will feed directly into your house, so it will power any appliances you’re using during daylight hours. As electricity prices continue to rise, this is a huge benefit for our customers.
