Solar Panel Installation

Huddersfield: Embrace the Sunshine with Homegrown Renewable Energy 

Huddersfield, the jewel in the crown of the area known locally as ClecHuddersFax, is perched on the east side of the Pennines in beautiful Calderdale.  

While this part of Northern England is picture postcard pretty, it’s not the sort of place you’d immediately think of for solar power.  

But Solar Fast has been helping homeowners across Huddersfield harness the sun’s power for years – from Marsden to Meltham, Brighouse to Brockholes.  

You see, Solar Panels don’t need scorching sunshine to make electricity.  

Panels are made with Photovoltaic cells, which convert daylight into energy, even if the weather is reverting to the Yorkshire ‘norm’ of clouds and rain.  

So, you can be producing your own energy, and reducing your electricity bills, most of the year round.

As a local solar panel installer, we understand the unique characteristics of Huddersfield’s rooftops and weather patterns. We make sure your residential solar panels are perfectly optimized for maximum efficiency.

Why Choose Solar Panels in Huddersfield?

Cold hard cash!  

Yep, the simple truth is a solar panel system will reduce your energy bills, by up to 80%, even in the wilds of Calderdale’s hillsides.  

Using Huddersfield’s moderate sunshine, solar panels can significantly contribute to your energy needs and become less reliant on the grid, you’ll also boost your home’s value.  

A Solar Fast Energy System can increase the value of your home by up to 25% – according to a recent study by Admiral. 

The great by-product of all this is you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future for Huddersfield and beyond. 

Happy customers at home in Huddersfield

Tim and Dan live in a small village within commuting distance of Leeds, not too far from Huddersfield.

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. 

Pricing a Solar Panel System for your Huddersfield home

Size matters 
How big is your property? This helps determine the number of panels you can fit on your roof. 

Energy needs
What size system do you need to cover your typical energy usage? 

Desired panels  
How many panels are you considering? More panels generate more power, but also cost more. 

Extra features  
Do you want a car charging port or battery storage to earn money from excess energy? 

Yorkshire wildlife protection  
Consider bird netting to shield your panels from our feathered or furry friends. 

Need a starting point? While a precise quote needs a site survey, here’s a general idea: 

  • A 3kW system suitable for a smaller home might start around £5,000 – £6,000. 
  • Larger systems for bigger houses or higher energy needs will naturally cost more.

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.
