Happy customers

Tim and Dan live in a small village within commuting distance of Leeds, in the beautiful county of Yorkshire.  

Can you tell we started Solar Fast in 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.

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.
