Environmentally Conscious? Shifting to a Cleaner, Greener Way of Living?
Whether your aim is to reduce your electricity bill, offset the miles travelled in your electric car or just doing your bit for the environment, a Solar PV (photovoltaics) system is a good place to start and a great addition to any home or business.
There are several impressive options available on the market currently, and to help home or business owners understand the beneficial factors of Solar we offer a simple, no obligation, free consultation process:
- Initial call to carry out a desktop survey and establish if the proposed location is suitable
- A face to face or video meeting to design a Solar PV system and produce a proposal that includes a predicted performance and accurate
quotation of work
- If this is something you wish to pursue, let us know and we can arrange the next step

Solar panels don’t typically require any maintenance and that’s why they have earned the title ‘fit and forget’ technology. As the panels themselves don’t have any moving parts, very little can go wrong. It is good practice to have the panels cleaned once every few years, however, most panels are manufactured using self-cleaning glass, so this is not essential.
Inverters typically come with a 5-year warranty which in most cases, can be upgraded to as much as 20 years to give you peace of mind.
Recent breakthroughs in technology mean that batteries are now a very cost-effective addition to a solar system and also make it worthwhile for anyone to install solar panels. This is because they will store any electricity generated by the solar panels, when you leave your home and when you return.
This can be installed at the same time as your solar panels or at a later date. Installing the battery with your solar panels on a residential property will mean you can benefit from 5% VAT instead of 20% when purchased on its own.
Since then, prices for solar have reduced massively, as well, it’s important to factor in the rising cost of electricity, meaning the government no longer need a subsidy. Battery storage has now become increasingly available, meaning solar owners can use most or all of their solar electricity, making it more viable.
