You save money
A solar system can cut your electricity bill by up to 50%*. As well as reducing the amount of electricity you use, 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.
By teaming up with Solarcentury, we can offer two quality solar panel options which represent best value or best efficiency. Not only that, our attractive black panel option is our most energy efficient.
To help tackle climate change, we want our operations to become energy independent. One of our goals is to produce as much renewable energy as we consume by 2020. We have already installed over 700,000 solar panels on our stores and buildings and we feel it’s a natural step to give our customers the opportunity to do the same.
Install home solar and you will save tons of carbon emissions over the life of your system. For example, installing a typical home solar system is the equivalent of having 55** trees in your back garden.

** 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.
