2. Home survey
3. Approve quotation
4. Installation
* Things to have at hand: the direction your roof faces, approximate pitch in degrees, Energy Performance Certificate rating, average bill value.
Cut your electricity bill up to 50%
Start earning cash
A solar system can cut your electricity bill by up to 50%*. On top of this saving, the government’s Feed-in Tariff (FIT) will give you tax free income for the electricity you generate and also the electricity you export to the national grid.

Invest £5,150 on a solar system and make £350* in the first year through a combination of savings and income. This increases with inflation, so that over the 20 years of your FIT you will make a PROFIT of £4, 447*. That means you get a tax free return on your investment of 6.1%. We believe a solar system must be affordable, but also good quality.
Cut down your electricity bill
Reason #2
6 year guarantee
* A SW or SE facing roof at typical pitch in central UK, giving with 860kWh/kWp yield (source: MCS, Solarcentury analysis).  45% of the solar energy produced used in the property, typical for the UK (source: DECC).  Property has an Energy Performance Certificate rating A-D.  Investment based on Solarcentury's 3.1kWp monocrystalline system.  Feed-in Tariff rates as at April 2016.  Savings of 16.0p per unit of electricity, at 5% annual inflation (source: DECC Quarterly Energy Prices, 10 year average).  Profit after cost of installation and includes £20 per annum maintenance costs (index linked).  Return being tax-free, with the average annual return (IRR) taken over 20 years.  Payback being the time taken to recover the initial outlay to the nearest year.  Estimated savings and income in the first year at £357.

Renewable energy
Green & clean energy
Every hour the sun beams on to the earth, it would generate enough power to meet the world's energy needs for an entire year.

Solar transforms the sun’s free energy into electricity. Why should we burn fossil fuels, produce nuclear waste when we can produce our own green clean energy right now?

Install home solar and you will save tons of carbon emissions over the life of your system. For an example, installing a typical home solar system is the equivalent of having 55* trees in your back garden.
Energise your home with renewable energy
Reason #3
* A single tree can absorb 22kg of CO2 per annum (source: http://www.arborenvironmentalalliance.com/carbon-tree-facts.asp. Kg of CO2/kWh is 0.487 (source: 2013 Government GHG Conversion Factors: for electricity consumed in a building). Based on a typical system of 3.1kWp with average yield, the average kg saving per year is 1,168kg.
