Solar panels

How it works 

At first we will have to call you and book an appointment for a free, non-binding assessment of your property. The phone call will take only a few minutes of your time, during which we will explain the scheme to you, and answer any questions that you might have.

The assessment itself will take about an hour of your time, during which the assessor will ensure the property is suitable for having solar panels installed. This will involve measuring your roof etc. Our assessor will also go through your utility bills with you, calculating how much money would solar panels generate for your household in both savings and the government’s feed in tariff. We will then with your permission log onto the online portal and establish if panels can pay for themselves and benefit you.

If you are happy with the figures and would like to proceed, we will then look for a financial backer, willing to finance the system for you. The repayments would then be covered by the Feed in tariff, money for energy that you sell back to the grid and your electricity bill savings. If the system just fails to self fund you will have the option to make a small contribution if you still want solar fitted. We do warn ALL customers please don’t be disappointed if we have to say No!

But if it works and you are happy we can then proceed to installing your system. It is not a rent-a-roof scheme, which means that you become the owner of your system, receiving all of its benefits. It will have a lifespan of at least 20 years, during which it will make you £16,000 on average. 

Requirements:

There are a few requirements that you will have to meet in order to qualify for the scheme. If you are a homeowner but do not meet the criteria, feel free to proceed as we we might still be able to help you.  

  • Homeowner
  • Under 65 years old
  • Not moving in the next 5 years
  • No CCJs, IVAs, or debt management
  • Min. spend £40 a month on electricity
  • No loft conversions/ building work planned to the roof

SolarEdge PV Upgrade

SolarEdge power optimizers perform MPP tracking for each module individually and therefore extract the maximum energy from each module, regardless of other modules in the string.
For existing solar installations that suffer from mismatch-related power losses, SolarEdge offers two optional retrofit configurations:

Module Level Power Optimization

Add a power optimizer to each module for added energy through module-level MPPT. There is no need for additional hardware or inverter replacement.

Smart Module

In addition to power optimizers install the SolarEdge Safety and Monitoring Interface to enable:

  • Added energy through module-level MPPT
  • Enhanced maintenance through module-level monitoring
  • Automatic module level DC safety

SolarEdge Retrofit Products

  • Power optimizer –  with independent optimization technology IndOP™
  • Safety and Monitoring Interface – the SolarEdge Safety & Monitoring Interface for module-level monitoring and safety retrofitted systems
  • SolarEdge Key – commissioning tool that is used to enable power optimizers to work with non-SolarEdge inverters without installing any additional hardware
