Getting solar energy in your home could lower your carbon footprint and energy bills. And, if you qualify for the Green Living Reward, you could even get £500 cashback towards the cost of solar panels or a battery.
We’ve teamed up with Effective Home, one of the leading suppliers of solar panels and batteries, to make getting solar energy easy.
Installation of solar panels on a typical 3-bed house start at around £6,850.
The cost can vary a lot between properties and most solar installers will offer a free, tailored quote.
Don’t forget you could claim £500 cashback on your solar panels or battery with the Green Living Reward.
In the unlikely event of something going wrong with your solar panels or battery, you’ll need to call your installer directly.
If you used Effective Home, you can call them on 0333 003 0703. Lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
PV panels will work for most homes, but things like the direction, angle and the size of your roof will affect how much energy you’ll capture.
Your installer should provide a free survey to make sure solar is suitable for your home.
You don’t have to add a battery to get solar energy in your home. But without one, you will only be able to use energy at the time it is generated. A smart solar battery stores your energy so you can use it when you need it.
Our Home Energy Saving Tool is great for working out where you could save money on energy bills. You can even create a personalised action plan to help reduce your carbon footprint.
