A typical 4kWp south-facing system will pay itself back in 7 years - after that the system will generate pure profit. It can be a little longer for smaller systems or those at poorer orientations, but we can confirm your estimated payback time during your no-obligation site survey.

We typically install SunPower solar panels, which are the most efficient in the world. Due to our commitment to quality and consistently high customer satisfaction, we’re privileged to be named SunPower Premier Partners.

To get the full Feed-In Tariff you’ll need an EPC rating of D or above. If your property does not achieve this, it’s possible that adding Solar Panels or a few other measures could improve your grade, making you eligible for the government incentives. For lower grades, you can still benefit from the FiT, it’s just at a slightly reduced rate.
