Photovoltaics (PV) use light to generate electricity. Photovoltaics are frequently used to power equipment that is not connected to the mains electricity supply due to the high cost of doing so. Usually this is in connection with batteries and other means of electricity generation depending on the use of the equipment. The cost of PV is such that its use where the application is connected to the mains is usually only financially viable if supported by grants. Fortunately support is available in the form of feed in tariffs.
The feed in tariff for PV is such that some companies are offering free PV installations in return for them collecting the income. Such schemes are a cheap way of becoming green and do give the user reduced electricity bills, however, bearing in mind that the installing company is doing it to make a profit, they should be avoided if at all possible so that the user can reap the benefit.
