Why Should I Get Solar Panels?

Reduced energy bills up to 70%*

Generating & selling your own energy

Cutting your fossil fuels by 1 tonne annually

and more...

You can save money

Using solar panels means you’ll be buying much less electricity from the electricity grid and your electricity provider,  so you’ll see an instant reduction in your electricity bills – up to 70%*.

Reduce your carbon footprint

The average home with a solar panel and battery system will save the planet 1 tonne in fossil fuels every single year. You can drastically reduce your household’s carbon footprint and become an example on how to live a greener life.

There are solar panel incentives

The UK government provides a range of financial incentives to support those going green with solar panels which makes the technology even more accessible.

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) allows those with excess electricity to export and sell this excess electricity back to the grid and receive payments for doing so. The price varies by electricity supplier, with the average being 5.4p/kWh.

A homeowner can obtain an Energy Performance Certification (EPC) which guarantees a minimum level of energy efficiency of a property. With this, you can apply for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The RHI means you could get cash payments from the government every three months.


Solar panels increase the value of your home

Installing a solar panel and battery storage system can also increase a home’s desirability and saleability by 14% on average and also increase the house price itself.

They’re easy to maintain

Solar panels need little to no maintenance. We only recommend wiping your panels down once a year to ensure dust, leaves and branches don’t cast a shadow on your panels and impact the amount of electricity you generate.

What returns should I expect from my solar panels?

We generally see returns of 5% as soon as you install your panels. To put this in context, an investment in a £10k solar panel and battery storage system will show you a net saving of £500 in your energy bills every year.

I am thinking about installing solar panels. Do I qualify?

Every property in the country is eligible to install a solar panel system, unless the property resides in a conservation area in which case planning permission is required. Solar panels are not allowed to be placed on listed buildings. For blocks of flats, you must own the freehold of the entire block to be allowed to install solar panels. The only other requirement is that you must be the homeowner.
