Cost of living and how Solar panels can help

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

We are all trying to think of the environment and our future more than ever before. Whether it be cycling to work, or cutting our meat intake – why would you not look at a more sustainable way to provide energy to your home?

With the cost of living creeping up everyday we are all looking for ways to save money and energy and with the summer fast approaching is it worth thinking about installing solar panels? You could be saving up to £900-£1,200 a year on your energy bills with a solar panel array..

We believe that now is the time to make a change, with VAT for renewables currently at 0% you don't have to pay any extra tax! Prices of materials have only been going up and are not showing any signs of coming down. So if you are ready to make the change, what is the next step?

How does the process work?

  • We can have a look at your property on google, measure the roof, and provide an estimate based on your roof size, currently energy usage and cost per kWh of energy

  • If you are still interested we will conduct a site survey

  • We will finalise the quotation with any amendments needed or any extras you would like - for example a solar diverter to your hot water cylinder for any excess energy produced by the solar

  • Book in the installation, get the scaffolding erected, electrician booked in and materials delivered

  • Once everything is installed we can set up your online monitoring system which you can then access on your laptop, PC or smart phone

  • Once final payment is received we can create your MCS certificate and provide you with a full handover pack with all your warranties, servicing details and certification!

BUT! There are lots of companies jumping on the bandwagon.. Here at Polar Planet we have been installing solar systems for almost 10 years AND if you have any questions please come into our office and have a chat with one of our renewable specialists!

ALSO! We found this video really interesting during the week, and think you might find it interesting too. My5 - Solar Panels: Are They Really Worth It? - Season NaN - Episode 1 / Solar Panels: Are They Really Worth It? (
