Why should you get solar in Wakefield?

Because it’s a genuine home improvement! Don’t think of solar panels as an ‘add-on’ to your home.    

It’s one of the few upgrades that ticks all the boxes: increasing your home’s value, slashing your energy bills, and even putting money in your pocket. 

Solar, or photovoltaic, panels generate clean, free electricity from dawn to dusk, instantly reducing your reliance on the grid and slashing your energy bills.  

Don’t worry about Yorkshire’s occasional drizzle – even on cloudy days your panels are working! 

Unlike fossil fuel, the sun isn’t going anywhere for another 4.5 billion years, ensuring a reliable energy source no matter what the world throws your way. 

And, Wakefield’s already embracing the solar revolution!  

From Ossett to Ackworth, nearly 20,000 Yorkshire homes are now powered by the sun, and Solar Fast is proud to be leading the charge in Wakefield. 

Happy customers in the Wakefield Area

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

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. 

How much does solar panel installation cost in Wakefield?

Factors influencing your solar price are: 

  • Bigger households typically use more energy, so need more panels, affecting the cost. 
  • Want to save excess energy for nighttime or earn money selling it back? Add batteries! 
  • Need bird netting or other deterrents for our feathered friends? Consider these costs. 
  • Property Size & Panel Preferences impact the number and type of panels needed.

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.
