Level up your energy savings with Solar Panels

Solar Panels are often regarded as one of the smartest investments you can make for your home in 2023. Being more affordable than ever and with an installation time from as little as just one day; Solar Panels are one of the most popular, home renewable energy sources in Scotland.

How do Solar Panels work?

When the sun is in the sky and daylight sines onto a solar panel, energy from the daylight is absorbed by the PV cells in the panel. This energy is then harvested and converted into usable energy for the home.

There is a popular misconception that Solar Panels only work in direct sunlight, making them obsolete in Scotland. Luckily, this is entirely incorrect. Solar Panels work by absorbing daylight, so even on a cloudy day they will produce energy for your home!

What are the benefits of Solar Panels?

Having Solar Panels allows you to:

  • Reduce your electricity bills by up to 70%.
  • Enjoy free, year-round energy as soon as installation is complete! 
  • Reduce your reliance on the national grid, especially if you install a battery system alongside them.
  • If you don’t wish to set up a battery alongside your solar panels, you can sell any excess energy not utilized by your household back to the National Grid, which increases your savings even more!
  • Get FREE bird proofing subject to availability!

Why install a storage battery?

  • A storage battery can increase the utilization of renewable energy produced by your solar.
  • It allows you to store any excess energy you produce during the day and then use at nighttime when the solar is not working.
