Why go energy smart?
The best solar energy specialist

Energy from the sun is free. Solar-energy systems allow you to capture free sunlight and convert it into usable power in your home.

Energy from the sun is clean. Solar energy can be used to heat and cool your home, but it has almost no impact on the global climate. Several solar panel grants for homes and other incentives are currently available for UK homeowners, designed to encourage using renewable energy and reduce your household bills.

  • Generation tariff: your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. Once your system has been registered, the tariff levels are guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 20 years) and are index-linked.
  • Export tariff: your energy supplier will pay you a further rate for each unit you export back to the electricity grid, so you can sell any electricity you generate but don't use yourself. At some stage smart meters will be installed to measure what you export, but until then the energy you export is estimated as being 50 per cent (75 per cent for hydro) of the electricity you generate (only systems above 30kWp need to have an export meter fitted, and a domestic system is unlikely to be that big). Similarly, the export tariff is index-linked.
  • Energy bill savings: you will be making savings on your electricity bills because generating electricity to power your appliances means you don’t have to buy as much electricity from your energy supplier. The amount you save will vary depending how much of the electricity you use on site.
