Solar Panel Installation

Solar Panel Installation in Manchester

Manchester is famously the rainiest city in the UK, so it may not be the first place you think of when you are talking about solar power – but it’s actually a great place to get energy from the sun! 

That’s why Manchester City Council had installed nearly 10,000 solar panels on various building, and public spaces, by the end of last year.  

Now, as a resident of Manchester and the Great Manchester area, that is certainly reducing your carbon footprint and the amount you, indirectly, spend on electricity.

So, imagine if you had a full, Solar Fast Energy System of your own! How much you could you save?

We’ve been installing in, and around, Manchester for years and, as we are located in the next county along, we are always on hand to help you decide what would be best for your home.

Solar Fast are the energy experts, we know exactly what we are doing, just ask our 16,000 happy customers. 

The gist of this is, installing solar panels will cut electricity bills no matter where you are in the UK – plus you’ll be helping to look after our planet for future generations.

Should Manchester residents be fitting solar? 

That would be a resounding ‘Yes!’ from those residents who have made the leap to being their own domestic power generator. Energy prices have been wildly fluctuating for the last 5 years and there is no sign of them stabilising anytime soon.  

Photovoltaic panels, which is the posh way of saying solar panels, generate electricity whenever the sun is out – whether it’s behind clouds or not.  

Obviously, the stronger the rays the higher the generation but most systems will produce enough to run an average home from early spring until late autumn.  

If it’s daytime, and you can see your hand in front of your face, your Solar Fast Energy System will be producing power. Plus, the sun is the most reliable of all the renewables, it’s good to go for the next 4.5 billion years according to local lad, Professor Brian Cox. 

Having your own energy generation system means you can be in control of what you pay, rather than being at the mercy of global markets and fossil fuel availability.  

Solar Fast are installing everywhere from Ashton-under-Lyne‎ to Worsley and work to your budget and timeframe – so why not join the nearly 2,500 households that have switched to solar panels at home?

Local Customer Testimonial

Tim and Dan live in a small village in Yorkshire, about an hour from Manchester.

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.

Why Solar Fast is the best installer in the Manchester area

From the minute you sign up for your Solar Fast Energy System, until your panels need replacing – that’s 30 years – we’ll be there. From the erection of the scaffolding, through the installation of your products to the DNO paperwork and monitoring.  

You know you can trust us as we are accredited and registered with MCS, NAPIT, Trustmark and HIES. 

If the last few years has taught us anything here in the UK, it’s that we can’t rely on stable energy prices – which is why Solar Fast firmly believe in energy independence and futureproofing your home.  

Did we mention that your panels are guaranteed for 2.5 decades? And that we’ll be with you for that whole time?  

We did, but it bears repeating, doesn’t it? Solar Fast didn’t become one of the Financial Times’ fastest-growing solar panel installers in the UK for the last year without delivering what we promise. 

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.
