Solar Panel Installation

Solar Panel Installation in York

York is North Yorkshire’s tourist hot spot, a city that can trace it’s history back to when the Romans were running the gaff.  

Pretty and historic as it is, we know North Yorkshire isn’t the first place you’d think of when it comes to getting power from the sun.  

As the saying goes ‘It’s grim up north’ …. but that phrase is as wrong as it is cliche, it’s beautiful up north and it’s a great place to fit solar panels for your home.  

Solar panels work by converting daylight, rather than direct sunshine, into energy so it dosn’t matter if York isn’t quite the Costa Del Fulford.  

From Clifton Moor to Stonebow, if the sun is in the sky, you can generate electricity using your solar PV panels – even if it’s overcast, raining or snowing.  

York city council are on it too, they support the excellent Solar for Schools scheme, have invested £2.2 million to develop solar EV charging at their Park & Ride sites plus they encourage businesses to join One Planet York to make the city more sustainable.

Should you get solar installed in York?

You should if you’re fed up with fluctuating energy costs!   

Even with Yorkshire’s occasional drizzle, solar panels generate free energy all year round – the only thing that affects the amount of electricity they provide is the strength of the sun. 

Yes, even on a cloudy York race day, your panels are working. As long as you can see your hand in front of your face, you’re producing clean, green energy. 

And the best part?

The sun’s our most reliable partner, shining brightly for billions of years – a tad longer than the guaranteed 25–30-year lifespan of your panels! 

Dwindling fossil fuels, and the resulting volatile energy markets, means it’s time we all took control of our bills and our environmental impact.

What is the cost of a solar panel system in York?

Deciding if solar is right for you can feel overwhelming. But don’t worry, Solar Fast believe in a personalised approach, making sure your solar system perfectly fits your unique needs.  

Understanding Your Energy Appetite. 

The key lies in understanding your average electricity usage. Are you a bustling family with frequent appliance use? Do you envision electric vehicles in your future? These factors significantly impact your energy demand and influence the ideal system size. 

Dreaming of ultimate energy independence?  

Battery storage allows you to harness the sun’s power even on cloudy days, but it adds to the initial cost. We’ll help you weigh your budget and energy goals to find the perfect balance. 

Location, Location, Location. 

York’s diverse wildlife is a delight, but pigeons and squirrels can be pesky when it comes to solar panels! Bird netting or other animal deterrents might be necessary, affecting the overall price.

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.
