Save Money & The Planet With A Home Solar System

Here at Powerhug, we believe that there can be a better power generation and supply system for the whole of the UK, one which will never approach its capacity and that can keep the planet breathing just as it should for generations. This is why we are passionate about providing and managing solar panels in London, as the Mayor’s plans to make the capital a zero-carbon city align perfectly with our ethos.

If you are in North London, East London or anywhere else in the capital and you are keen to see the world halt climate change (you may also want to bring down your energy bills), contact us today to see if you are eligible for solar panels. We will be delighted to professionally install and manage a solar PV system for you, and work together with you to make the world a little bit greener.

The benefits of solar PV in London

The capital sees far lower installation rates for solar panels than the rest of the UK, but we want to change this by showing property owners just how many benefits they can find when choosing solar PV for homes and businesses. These include:

  • Low maintenance costs ‒ solar panels require little to no day-to-day work
  • Earning more by selling unused electricity to the National Grid
  • Earning more money the further south your property is (e.g. properties in London will most likely earn more than properties in Edinburgh)
  • Giving yourself a greener property with a renewable energy source
  • Saving money on your energy bill every year
  • Adding value to your property by making it more financially attractive to buyers

You may also be happy to note that solar panels are considered “permitted development”, so they shouldn’t need planning permission either.


Earning money from your solar panels

From 2013-2019, it was possible to get free solar panels in Britain for any building type, under a policy known as the Green Deal Agreement. Solar panel companies agreed that they would cover all costs for installation and maintenance of panels, while keeping the Feed-in-Tariff paid out by the UK government for all the solar energy that was produced and exported. However, this incentive has since been closed. Instead, it has been replaced by the Smart Export Guarantee, which came into force in January 2020. 

The Smart Export Guarantee is basically an updated replacement of the Feed-in-Tariff. Just as it did with the old system, it allows property owners to send surplus energy and generated electricity back to the National Grid, earning a little bit of money each day that the sun shines. 

Solar panels may no longer be free, but they can still be bankable for your budget. Just imagine checking the monitor for your solar battery at the end of the day, once the sun has gone down, and discovering that your panels have helped you to break even on the electricity that day, or even given you a small profit! It’s perfectly possible, when you have solar panels installed on your roof.

How much does it cost to install solar panels in London?

The price of a solar PV system can depend on a number of different factors, including the type and size of system you want to use, the material of the panels and how many panels your plan needs. In turn, the number of solar panels you need will be determined by your energy consumption levels, the size of your roof and often the budget you have available for an installation. As such, it isn’t possible for us to declare a fully set price on the cost of solar panels, because the factors vary too greatly.

Leasing your London roof to us for solar panels

You may be sitting directly underneath an opportunity to make money anywhere in London, and it comes in the form of your roof. This isn’t something that many property owners take advantage of, owing to a lack of capital, lack of expertise or a lack of capacity (sometimes all three might be at work together). However, we are more than ready to step in and help when you want a new, clean energy source for your building. 

To get you started on a path to greener living and lower energy bills, we will be happy to lease your London roof from you to set up a solar PV system. From there, we will carry out the installation work to fit the panels you need, and either pay you rent or supply you with cheaper power. This costs you absolutely nothing and will have only a minimal impact on your day-to-day life, as we’ll be the owners and operators of the equipment. It’s almost like having the free scheme again!

Whether you are based in North London, East London, or anywhere else in the city, we can carry out this work for you in no time, so you can start saving money as well as the planet as soon as the installation is complete.
