Solar Panel Installation

Solar Powering the UK’s capital 

While London boasts iconic landmarks and rich history that tempts tourists from all around the globe, it doesn’t always shine with endless sunshine.  

But here’s the good news: even in the heart of the city, you can still harness clean energy using solar panels!

We’ll design a system tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you maximise the benefits of solar power … even with London’s unique weather patterns.

  • Reduce your electricity bills by generating your own clean energy. 
  • Contribute to a cleaner, greener future for London and the planet.

Should You Install Solar Panels in London? 


While London may not be known for endless sunshine, solar panels are a fantastic investment for your home.  

Here’s why: 

  • Solar panels can actually increase the value of your London property, making it more attractive to potential buyers. 
  • Enjoy significant savings on your electricity bills, up to 80%, as you generate your own clean energy, even with London’s weather patterns. 
  • SEGs allow you to sell any surplus energy back to the grid, generating additional income. 
  • Solar panels efficiently capture daylight, not just direct sunlight, and even work on cloudy, rainy, or snowy days.  

We can harness the power of the sun for the next 4.5 billion years – that’s the incredible sustainability offered by solar energy. 

London is certainly embracing the solar revolution with over 23,343 households from neighbourhoods like Croydon and Camden to suburbs like Chiswick and Richmond, have already made the switch. 

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.
