Solar Panel Installation

Solar Panel Installation in Sheffield

Sheffield, much like Rome, is nestled in between 7 beautiful hills … but in South Yorkshire, not Italy.  South Yorkshire is not generally known for its sunshine but don’t let that dampen your enthusiasm for solar power!  

Sheffield councils are developing lots of programmes is reduce carbon and improve energy use.  They are investing £3.5m in renewable energy on their buildings and they’re exploring options to use local land for renewable energy installations. 

They’ve even partnered with energy suppliers to carry out energy efficiency improvements to over 800 low-income homes, including a range of insulation measures, smart heating controls, PV and air source heat pumps. 

In fact, Sheffield has a pretty good track record on green initiatives and climate action, which is why it’s worth checking out their ECO4 scheme.  

And, with years of experience under our belts and a base camp just up the road in Castleford, Solar Fast is your ideal partner for navigating the world of solar in Sheffield. 

We’ve been installing in Sheffield and South Yorkshire, from Broomhill and Hillsborough to Darnell and Stannington.

Why fit solar in Sheffield?

Let’s be honest, energy bills in Sheffield have started to get a bit out of hand over the last five years but there’s a way to break free from this price gouging nightmare – your very own source of power using the sun!  

A few photovoltaic panels, that’s posh for Solar Panels, on your roof will pump out electricity any time the sun’s out, even when it’s not baking hot.  

As long as it’s daytime and you can see your hand in front of your face, those panels are busy making your lights twinkle and kettles whistle. Even with Sheffield’s generally grey skies, that’s a lot of free energy! 

Forget dodgy energy companies and price hikes, with solar you’re tapping into 4.5 billion years of sunshine. It’s like having your own mini-Hallamshire power station on your roof.

A Solar Fast system will keep your home powered for pennies, leaving you more dosh for a cheeky pint down the Wicker or a shopping splurge in Meadowhall. 

It’s no wonder installations are popping up everywhere from Abbeydale Park to Ecclesall Road. Over 8,230 homes in the Sheffield area are already shaking off the price hikes with solar.  

So why not join them, ditch the energy worry blues, and enjoy the power of the Peak District sun from your own rooftop!

Local Customer Testimonial

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

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.
