Are You Tired Of

Energy Bills

Paying high energy bills every month?

Electricity Outages

Constant electricity outages giving you a headache?

Value Back

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.

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.

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

After completing my research on Solar energy and deciding on Start Solar to install the system I can say I have been pleasantly surprised by all the members of the team. From Suzie who came, listened... carefully to our requirements and what we hoped to achieve by having Solar power and answering our questions, through to the installation team,who were brilliant. They were courteous, hard working, informative and very tidy in their working environment; a rarity nowadays. So a very big thank you to them!! After just a few days we have been able to see the reduction in grid energy consumption despite some very grey days and hopefully the investment we have made will make a huge difference annually, off setting the initial outlay and on a smaller scale doing our bit in reduction of fossil fuels. Thank you again .read more

I recently got 12 panels installed and I am very pleased that I chose Start Solar to install it. I got the hot water heater too which works through the emersion and even last night at 5pm we had... piping hot water from the solar during the day. The team on the day were very clean and tidy and they placed the inverter in a very accessible area for me to look at in the roof space and I’ve got the app all on my phone to monitor it. No hard sale, Suzie has been brilliant to deal with, they use the latest products, everything has been seamless. Highly more

I’d love to share the positive experience we had with Start Solar UK & Ireland. First of all they were really easy to contact which we did first on Facebook then by phone. Suzie came out very... promptly & was so friendly, knowledgeable & professional. She had a really good look around our property and listened to our concerns and needs. We were very happy with that first meeting. The plans for our solar system were laid out & explained in a way that was easier to understand and read. We were given lots of different payment options too which was great. I liked that nothing was pushed on us, it was totally led by us.After making the deal we had to wait a while but it was fine because Suzie kept in close contact with us to kept us up to date. The guys who fitted our solar panels & fitted the indoor system were really nice, professional & quick! Sam especially was very friendly & didn’t mind explaining a few times about how everything worked, he was so knowledgeable & clearly loves his job! Especially in these uncertain time it can be unnerving having unknown people at your home but Sam was lovely!Overall we would highly recommend this company due to their competitive prices, really approachable staff & great, good looking & easy to use products! Thanks again!read more

This was such as easy process from start to finish. Excellent sales process explaining in great deal. The installation and walk through were fantastic and the system is great. We have a good... supply of electricity coming in - constant hot water from the Eddi and hope to reap the benefits in terms of cost. A big driver for us was the environmental benefit - working from home, I can use the natural resource to heat up the areas of the house that I need to with electricity generated from the sun rather than using oil.Great company - great service - clean reliable installation engineers!read more
