Solar Energy FAQ’s


This depends on system size. Our systems are competitively priced and the cost of an installation has more than halved since 2011.

Again this depends on system size, solar energy typically offers a ROI up to 20% at current Feed in Tariff rates. We would expect a typical 50kWp commercial installation to produce around 40,000 – 50,000 kWh per year.

Currently most systems will pay back in around 4.5 to 7 years, sometimes less, depending on system size and location.

Our team offers a flexible service to work to your deadlines and most systems can be installed in a week or less (50kWp), following DNO application and planning approval where necessary.

Our power performance warranties guarantee an 80% production level for the next 25 years but it is likely that your system will generate a significant amount of electricity beyond this.
