Being less reliant on the grid gives you independence and protects you from price increases from energy suppliers.
Solar power is one of the most reliable forms of renewable energy. It is also the fastest-growing renewable energy source.
to your property
Solar Panels are considered a ‘permitted development’ so you may not need planning permission to install them at your home.
What are Solar Panels?
Solar is the world’s fastest-growing energy solution and uses Solar Panels made up of photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s energy. The best thing is these cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – even on a cloudy day, they are still capable of generating electricity for your home.Get started today
How do Solar Panels work?
The photovoltaic cells in Solar Panels work by converting sunlight into electricity, which can be used to power your household appliances and lighting directly or stored up
in a battery to use later. Any excess electricity goes back
into the grid for others to use (which you will be paid for).

Frequently asked questions
You might not think it, but the UK actually gets plenty of sun and even on cloudy days there’s enough solar energy to power your home. To put it into context, here in the UK, we get just as much solar energy as some of Europe’s warmer countries.
As an example, if you have 14 solar panels, you could generate enough energy to power a typical electric car for over 15,000 miles every year. That’s also enough to power thousands of washes using your home appliances – which is way more than you will need to do.
When you add a battery to back-up your solar panels you are able to store energy generated during the day to use later. This gives you greater independence from the grid and saves you money.
If your roof has a pitch (slope) between 20 and 50 degrees, it should be suitable. Roofs facing east, south or west get the most sun and are the most efficient. A north-facing roof will not be as efficient as it will not be exposed to enough sunlight.
No, installing a standard solar panel system at your home is a permitted development and you do not need to get planning permission. The only exception would be if your home is classed as a listed building, world heritage site or the installation is outside the standard guidelines of a permitted development.
