Can I Afford Solar Panels?
To understand how much money, you could save with solar panels, you must first understand your current electricity bill.
The best savings are made when electricity bills are at their highest. This could be due to your usage, time of day you tend to require electricity, or even due to current affairs such as the energy crisis we are experiencing in this moment.
Estimate the cost of solar panels on my home
The cost is dependent on the size, location and shade on your roof, along with the quantity of electricity desired to produce. Following a survey of your home, our team will design your solar panel system baring these factors in-mind. You can also buy additional items such as batteries, to store more energy for later use.
To make things easier for you we have included an online calculator. Our calculator can advise you on the best panel system for your home and allows you to add battery storage.
However, this is just an estimate. Our representatives would need to carry out a full survey for a final price to be determined.

How long will it take for my solar panels to pay for themselves?
There is no textbook way to work this out as there are many variables. However, to simplify, the higher the price of electricity, usage and generated energy by your solar panels, the quicker the pay back. To estimate your break-even point, first you need to work out the energy you will produce with solar panels. Then, divide this the cost by your monthly savings on your energy bill. This will tell you the number of months it takes to break even.
If you’re still unsure, speak to our representatives today and they will carry out a full survey to estimate your payback costs.
