Power your home with solar electricity
Installing solar PV (solar photovoltaic) to generate your own electricity supply is an excellent way to protect yourself from high energy costs. Plus, you’ll reduce your dependence on supplies at National Grid and lower your carbon footprint.
So you’ll not only save money on your energy bill, but you will also get paid for the surplus electricity that you feed back to the grid.
Cut your energy bills – by £100s per year!

How solar PV works
PV stands for ‘photovoltaic’ which means ‘converting light into electricity’.
A solar PV panel consists of many cells that are made of a semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cells it creates a flow of electricity. Solar panels work in most daylight conditions, even cloudy days, but the more direct sunlight that hits the panels, the better the generation will be that day. The panels will capture the sun’s energy as DC voltage, before the converter changes it into AC voltage which can be used in the home.
Typical solar PV systems are made up of around 10 panels but it depends on the size of your roof space, a typical system takes up 20m 2 of roof area. Most solar PV systems are considered a ‘permitted development’ so don’t generally require planning permission but some exceptions do exist; we can advise on that for you.
Costs & funding
As an accredited installer, we have access to various pots of funding that can make going green with solar PV FREE or low-cost for you. The funding comes from places such as energy companies, local authorities and government.
Getting solar PV panels
Get in touch with us and we’ll book you a FREE home visit for a Home Surveyor to come and take a look at your property, confirm suitability and advise on the PV system that will best meet your requirements.

Add battery storage to your
solar PV system
Adding solar battery storage is the perfect way to maximise the efficiency of your solar panels . . .
Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are devices that allow surplus electricity to be stored and . . .
Battery storage is especially important if you are out of the house during the day . . .
Without somewhere to store your generated energy, you could end up . . .

Solar PV FAQs
Solar PV are panels on a property’s roof that collect thermal energy from the sun which is then switched from DC voltage into usable AC voltage by a converter.
Solar PV is a great investment, saving around £500** on the average energy bill, plus you’ll be able to make money by registering for the government-backed Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme so you’re paid for any surplus solar electricity that you export back to the grid. It’s also an excellent choice for sustainability reasons.
Two to three days is typical.
Around £500** on the average energy bill.
It depends on numerous factors but our prices currently start at £4,995.
** Estimates taken from the Energy Savings Trust, August 2023
* The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is the Government’s scheme to pay you for the electricity you generate. All typical solar PV systems are eligible to receive SEG payments, so long as the technology and installer used is certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) or equivalent.
