Payback times on solar have never been shorter. You could be missing out on big savings

As energy prices continue to rise and the urgency to cut our carbon footprint increases, there’s never been a better time to start thinking about solar. 

We want to make the journey to solar as simple as possible. That’s why we’ve teamed up with InstaGroup, trusted leaders in energy-saving home improvements.

Step 1: Your time is precious so use the checklist below to ensure your home is suitable for solar.

Step 2: If your home fits, take the next step and send us your details using the form below. There is no obligation.

Step 3: Instagroup will contact you to discuss your solar plans in more detail.

1. Do you have the right roof for solar?

Ideally, you have a large, unshaded, roof without dormer windows or roof windows. 

The orientation of the roof impacts how much energy will be generated. We see good results on roofs that face South, East, West or anything in between.

You can also fit on more than one roof – installations across East and West-facing roofs is quite common and works well.   

Please note: We avoid fitting solar on North-facing roofs.


2. Is solar right for your wallet?

A typical installation costs around £5-6k and there aren’t currently aren’t any funding schemes available. However, the payback period has reduced by 30% since April and a further 18% since October.  Payback has never been faster.


3. Have you thought about a home battery?

A home battery allows households to make the most of the energy they generate. The cost of adding a battery starts at around £2k and is higher for batteries with higher capacity.


4. Does solar work for your lifestyle?

Without a home battery, it’s vital to move big energy-consuming tasks to the middle of the day. This is when you’re generating the most of your solar energy. These tasks would include things like running the dishwasher or washing machine.

The benefits of solar

As well as the financial savings, solar is a great option for households looking to reduce their carbon emissions – a typical installation cuts emissions from energy use by about 1.6 tonnes per year. Every year. It’s a large and sustained impact.


They increase your household’s independence and resilience, by relying less on the National Grid and energy companies. If you add a battery and EV to the mix, you can increase your household’s self-sufficiency even further.
