The recent skyrocketing of energy prices has put an unfair squeeze on a huge number of homes in the UK, however, these astronomical hikes are part of a trend that has seen energy prices rise above the rate of inflation for over 50 years.
No wonder so many people across the UK are now looking to renewable energy as a way of gaining independence from an out of control market.
Solar panels are a fantastic way to lower not only your energy bills but your carbon footprint too. Using photovoltaic cells to capture the energy packets in sunlight you can generate your own clean renewable power.
What’s more, by utilising government schemes such as The Smart Energy Guarantee (SEG) you can get paid for energy you don’t use and export back to the National grid!
Smarter Home Improvements are fully accredited experts in the installation, optimisation and maintenance of solar panels. With over 15 years of experience in solar technology, we will design a bespoke system for your home or business that will drastically cut your energy bills and carbon footprint.

WHAT WILL A SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION COST?
Because every system is custom designed for your property it is very difficult to give an exact price without knowing factors such as how many panels you want, how much roof space is available and other influencing considerations. However, our team will be happy to discuss your energy goals with and then give you a free, best price guaranteed quote.
ARE SOLAR PANELS EXPENSIVE TO OPERATE?
Solar panels are extremely cost effective to run, requiring very little maintenance. What’s more, you will be able to monitor the effectiveness and energy output of all of your solar panels with an intuitive application on your smartphone, so you will be able to see in real time if your panels are operating at optimal capacity.
ENERGY BILL SAVINGS USING SOLAR PANELS
This will depend on the size of your system and your energy usage but most customers will see a reduction in their energy bills of around 75%. On your first consultation with the team at Smarter Home Improvements, we will discuss with you your energy goals, what size of system you will need to achieve these goals and the average energy output per panel over the course of the year. This information will allow you to calculate exactly how much you will save in that year.
Once you have registered to a SEG scheme, this will then lower your bills further and the typical solar panel system will pay for itself between 7-10 years*.
*It is important to note that this estimate is based on current prices for energy which will almost undoubtedly rise again (above the rate of inflation) as has been the pattern for the last 50 years in a row.
REASONS TO INVEST IN SOLAR PANELS
By powering your home with renewable solar energy, you will see a drastic reduction in your energy bills. However, this is just one of the obvious benefits of generating your own power.
For a lot of our customers, reducing their carbon footprint and transitioning to a greener way of living is a crucial consideration as we try to improve the way we interact with our world and leave a healthy planet for the future generations.
The other huge benefit of using solar energy is to have the peace of mind that you are no longer tethered to the National grid and the political upheavals that can cause prices to sky-rocket in the blink of an eye.
HOW DO I SELL ENERGY BACK TO THE NATIONAL GRID?
By signing up to be a SEG generator you can sell any excess energy that you don’t use back to the National grid.
Tariffs and prices per unit of energy sold do vary however, so make sure to shop around to find the best deal.
If you are unsure of any details regarding SEG tariffs or would like help with the process, contact the team today.
CAN I POWER OTHER ELECTRICAL DEVICES USING MY SOLAR PANELS?
Yes! One of the best features of having a Solar panel system installed is being able to power other electrical items or systems using clean, renewable energy.
For example, as well as powering your electrics, you could connect your solar panels to an electric vehicle, effectively charging your EV for free.
Smarter Home Improvements are experts in installing home electric vehicle chargers so make sure to inform the team exactly what you would like your solar panels to do and our engineers will design and install the most efficient system for you.
