The solar panels are fitted free of charge – so what’s the catch?
Well, the solar panels produce electricity from the sun and that energy is used to power your home and it’s appliances. This power is sold to you the customer for a rate of 9.9p per kw/h instead of 15p a kw/h approximately what you will be paying at the moment in time with your current provider like EDF or British Gas. So effectively you will save roughly up to 50% on your bills !! Good right?!!
The power that is generated is also stored in a battery pack that is also fitted free of charge and this is stored for some night time usage. Solar power can’t be stored unless you have a battery pack to do so this is very handy for the winter months!!
Almost all mortgage providers allow the panels to be fitted and the solar company does NOT own your roof.
The Solar PV system is fully installed, warranted and maintained for 20 years free of charge. If you use more power than the panels produce in one day then you will simply have a small bill from your current provider who will provide you with the electricity that you need if this happens.
