Invest in Your Future: Go Solar in Cambridge!

  • Boosting Your Home Value: Studies show installing solar panels can increase your property value, making it a wise investment for the future. 
  • Saving Money on Electricity Bills: Solar panels generate clean energy whenever the sun rises, significantly reducing your reliance on the grid and lowering your electricity costs by up to 80%. 
  • Earning Additional Income: You can earn money by selling excess electricity generated by your solar panels back to the grid under the Smart Export Guarantee scheme. 

Don’t let cloudy skies fool you either, it’s a popular misconception that solar panels need direct sunshine to generate electricity – they actually work efficiently even when the sun hides behind the clouds.  

And, with the sun reliably shining for billions of years to come, solar power offers a stable, long-term solution to your energy needs. It’s no wonder that nearly 2,000 homes across Cambridge have already switched to solar.  

Happy customers

Tim and Dan live in a small village just inside North Yorkshire.   

They wanted to save money on their bills, and keep a promise to their kids, so getting a solar energy system was perfect for their family. 

Tim had researched everything he wanted, and spoken to neighbours about who to use, so both him and Dan were very clued up. 

They have an 18-panel set up, spread across 2 roofs, and they added 9.6kWh of battery storage. 

This system will provide energy all year round and will also help this family take advantage of some of the fantastic smart export guarantee. 

Understanding Solar Panel Costs in Cambridge

The cost of installing solar panels in Cambridge can vary depending on several factors, including: 

  • System size: The power output (measured in kW) of your system will significantly impact the price. Larger systems generate more electricity but are also more expensive. 
  • Panel type: Different types of solar panels offer varying levels of efficiency and cost. 
  • Roof characteristics: The size, shape, and orientation of your roof will influence the installation complexity and material requirements. 
  • Additional features: Adding components like batteries, car charging ports, or bird netting will increase the overall cost. 


Remember, investing in solar panels can offer significant long-term savings on your electricity bills and contribute to a sustainable future.

Benefits Of A Solar Panel Battery

While it’s possible to install solar panels without a battery, you’ll miss out on all the brilliant benefits:

Continuous Supply

Batteries store the energy generated from your solar panels. So on those bleak days mid-winter, you can continue to power your home without reverting back to the national grid.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

With a steady supply of solar energy all year round, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

Optimise Your Investment

It makes sense to generate and store as much solar energy as possible if you’re paying for solar panels. A battery lets you make the most of your investment.

Make A Profit

With the use of a battery, you may have more energy than you need. By choosing an SEG energy tariff, you can send your excess energy back to the grid and get paid for it!

Be Self-Sufficient

It feels good to be independent of the national grid for your energy supply. Concerns about blackouts or spiralling costs can be forgotten. With a battery, you can store and supply all the energy you need.
