With energy prices constantly rising, many people seek a more sustainable and cost-effective power supply.

We take pride in providing sustainable energy solutions, helping you to save money and produce green energy.
 
Over the last ten years, the cost of Solar PV has decreased significantly. As a result, it has become one of the most effective and efficient ways to generate green energy straight from your rooftop.

Government funding for solar

G

Although the Feed-In Tariff scheme (TIF) ended in 2019, on 1 January 2020, the government introduced the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) for licensed energy providers. 

This new initiative required SED Licensees to pay small-scale generators (SEG Generators) for any surplus low-carbon electricity exported back to the National Grid. So, you can generate income by selling any excess electricity.

As of 23 March 2022, the government have scrapped VAT on solar panels, making solar a more cost-effective solution than ever before.

Frequently Asked Questions about Solar Installations

F

How much does it cost to install solar panels?

Our 4kWp Solar installations start from just £3995 with zero VAT to pay.

How long do solar panels take to install?
A 4kWp solar system typically takes one day to install. However, this can vary depending on the size of your property and the number of panels you’d like to install. 
 
Our solar technician will provide an accurate installation turnaround time during your free site survey.
Do solar panels work on cloudy days?

Modern solar panels continue to work during cloudy weather. Solar panels react to light, so if it’s light enough to see, solar panels will generate electricity.

Does it need to be hot outside for solar panels to work?

Solar panels produce more electricity in summer, making it seem like they need warmer weather to work. But this is not the case. Instead, solar panels become less efficient if the temperature gets too hot (or too cold).
