Are You Tired Of

Energy Bills

Paying high energy bills every month?

Electricity Outages

Constant electricity outages giving you a headache?

Energy Capacity

Not using energy to Its full capacity?

Value Back

Not getting back the value you pay for on energy bills?
Why Solar PV?

Yes! The UK & Ireland IS suitable for Solar PV.

Solar panels work on daylight (UV), not direct sunlight and there is ample daylight hours to generate a healthy amount of electricity.

On average a 4kW system could potentially generate £600.00* worth of electricity annually.
*price is an approximation, based on a unit price of 18p/kW (100% self consumption), on a 30 degree, south facing roof.*

Future proof your home to rising electricity costs

Lower your carbon footprint

Power your home with green energy

Prices are now more feasible, and we also offer a finance option if preferred. No moving parts, so maintenance and upkeep are minimum.

Afraid you will not get the benefit as you are out all day?

We can help you maximise the potential by;

  • helping to re-educate how you go about your daily tasks
  • we can also install additional items such as
    • an Eddi, to heat your hot water via your immersion heater 
    • or a battery, to store any generated energy not used in the house rather than selling back to the grid.

Therefore, even if you are not home, the system is still working for you!

Heat your water with solar

Priority is always given to the electrical items in the home, if they are not being used, or are less than what the system is producing, then the extra energy (which would normally go back to the grid) would be diverted to the Eddi appliance.

It is not designed to heat your hot water as the immersion does, it is designed to work alongside it. It will give a gradual heat to the water in your tank (depending on the surplus energy your Solar Panels are producing) and so may need to be boosted by the immersion heater, which you can turn on as you would normally, only with the Eddi installed, you can do it via its interface instead.
Think of a pot of water on a low heat, it will be longer to heat than a kettle, but it will gradually get up to temperature.

With an Eddi installed, you are maximizing the usage of all the electricity produced by the PV system, instead of feeding it back to the grid.

Optional information
Supplied and installed £650 + VAT to include the app (hub), or £600 + VAT without the app.

Battery Storage

Can be fitted alongside the installation of PV or retrofitted at a later stage. Most popular is 4.8kWh for a residential property. While it may increase your overall payback on initial outlay, it does ensure you maximize the potential savings on system generation.

Well I’ve just had an installation of solar panels in my house in Comber, County Down, by the best solar panel company in NI/ROI/GB/U.K. and the most efficient, friendly staff of Lee and his helper... and Sam, who did everything that anyone could ask for. Sam even had his own vacuum cleaner and never left a speck of dust anywhere! I’ve still to find out the benefits of solar panels but from what I’ve been told from Suzie and all of the Start Solar team, it will be well worthwhile. I don’t have the benefit of working with another NI solar panel company but honestly Start Solar will not be beaten of their total services from start to finish. #TeamStartSolarUK&Ireland are going places!read more

From making an enquiry to installation Start Solar has provided a first class service. Their explanation of the products available, how the system works to installation was excellent. Each part of... the team provided a professional service leaving us feeling valued and important. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.We are delighted with our solar panels. Even on a dull day we are generating electricity. We try to use as much as we can during the day and this means we are not having to use as much electricity from the grid. Any surplus we export to the grid. We know this will make a real difference to our energy more

Excellent service from Start Solar. I had 4kw of panels installed plus the Eddi power diverter to heat my hot water. We have an unvented hot tank with a mid tank immersion and since the system was... installed in mid-May have had plenty of hot water without running the boiler, even on fairly overcast days. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and helpful and the installers did a tidy job. You may have to wait a while to get an installation slot, but they turned up when they said they would, despite planning it months in advance. 5 stars from me!read more

Really happy with the service from Start Solar. From initial consultation to installation, it was an exceptionally smooth process to add solar panels to our house. Any queries or questions we’ve had... since have all been promptly and professionally answered. Would highly recommend Start more

I got a 5kW solar PV installation,The all black panels also look great which was a massive deciding factor for us, along with the 25 year product warranty which was the longest warranty we could... find. I’ll be honest and say I did get quotes but Start Solar came out on top. Thank you to Suzie for her advice and for both Andrew & Suzie for coming back to talk me through the system. Very happy to recommend to others & already have recommended to many customers visiting my accommodation.Hope this summer the panels do there magic and I can updateread more

Absolutely fantastic service. They advised the type of system I needed which was less than I thought saving me money. They turned up on the day on time and were all wrapped up by lunchtime. Sam... took the time to talk me through the app and how to manage my appliance usage differently as out of the house much of the day when the system is generating electricity. I can already see savings and in no time the system will have paid for itself.If you want to lower your costs and your carbon footprint I would have no hesitation recommending the team at Start Solar. First Class !!!read more

We've only had the solar panels in since 5 April. Excellent job with installation and everything seems to be working perfectly. The engineer installed an app on my phone which shows me how much... electricity I'm generating. Really happy with more

Just had my panels installed yesterday and done a small 8 hour trial today to see how they performed. During this time I used the dishwasher twice, washing machine 3 times, had a pot of soup on the... hob all day, boiled the kettle numerous times and also afford myself the luxury of using the tumble dryer for 3 hours. On top of this our water is pumping hot because it gets heated before any excess is fed back to the grid so I'm saving on oil too! All this only cost me 63p!!!! My tumbler dryer cost nearly £1.20 an hour before on its own. This has to be the best decision and investment I've ever more

Very pleased with Solar PV system installed by Start Solar. Suzie was always at hand to answer any questions and the installation was straight forward. Solis home app allows for live real time... looking at what your panels are producing. This is good to know as you can then stagger what appliances you want to use throughout the day and when you know you panels are producing good energy. Would and have recommended!read more

Highly recommend Start Solar, great to deal with from start to finish. Suzie Walker was really friendly made the whole process run smoothly, her after sales has been really helpful as well in terms... of setting up the app etc and always prompt to respond to emails. The install team were in and out in a day and the standard of work was neat and tidy, no complaints from myself as a tradesman! Price wise Start Solar are more than competitive, maybe even the cheapest I found, but the quality of components used are the best on the market, you can't go wrong!read more

Recently got 8 Jinko panels fitted and a 4.8kw pylon tech battery. Very happy with how the panels look on my roof and a very neat and tidy job was done with the inverter and battery system fitted in... one small corner of my loft. There is also the added bonus of the Solis app to see what electricity I’m generating, what I’m storing on the battery and what I’m using all at the click of a button. As with anything new I’ve had a few teething problems but Suzie and Mark have been on hand to give advice and sort everything out quickly. Great professionalism and customer care throughout. Long may that continue 🙂read more

Great communication, easily contactable and competitively priced. Only fault was due to installation, as was told I would have to tear up carpet and flooring for cabling and after some long... conversations and problem solving an agreement was made to cut (by me) an access hole in the ceiling of one of the rooms. Was an extra cost that wasn’t highlighted on the site visit. But all work of installers was neat and tidy, just be sure you either have an attic for the inverter to be installed or have good access to your consumer more

First class service from this company. I got a solar system installed back in November and I've had my first month bill come in since it was put in and I was very pleasantly surprised. Even through... probably the worst month of the year, it was reduced by £45. So I can already see the system is working and doing exactly what I was told it would. Suzie, the sales person who came out was brilliant, she talked my wife and I through our options and left us to think about it, there was no pressure on the day of the survey to commit. This company get very good reviews for a reason, they respond promptly to questions/ emails, they use premium panels and they are all enthusiastic about their work- the installers included.Keep up the great work & all the best with your business in the more
