Save money on your energy bills and generate your own electricity.

Investing in solar power is an excellent way to save money while reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a greener future.

Solar power has become an increasingly preferred option for many households and businesses across the UK, offering a clean and green alternative way of creating energy.

By using photovoltaic cells (also known as PV), solar panels can convert sunlight into renewable electrical energy that can be used to generate electricity, cool buildings and heat water.

A 4 kW solar panel has the potential to produce upwards of 2,850 kWh of electricity a year – more than enough to cover the typical electricity needs of a three-bedroom home. Contact us today to make the change to brighter energy bills.

Some of the benefits of installing Solar PV include:

  • Slash your energy bills
  • 0% VAT when you install Solar PV
  • Reduces your carbon footprint

  • Energy independence

  • Cheap source of power

How much can I save from installing solar panels?

Many factors could affect the exact figure you would be saving on your energy bills. These range from the position of the newly installed solar panels, the time of day, how much electricity you use and the capacity of the solar panel system.

However, using estimations made by the Energy Saving Trust, a typical household with a 4.2 kilowatt-peak system can reduce their annual bills between £210 and £514/year.
