How can I get the most out of going solar? 

Your energy savings

Generating your own electricity means more than just installing solar panels – we can help you generate, store, and utilise your own energy, all while saving money.

Solar panels

Solar photovoltaic panels (solar PV panels) allow you to decrease your reliance on the grid by giving you greater energy independence. Not only will they save you thousands of pounds across their lifetime, but they’re renewable and much better for the environment too.

Battery storage

Great for making the most out of your solar PV panels whatever the weather, having battery storage means you can store excess electricity and use it when the sun isn’t shining. 

EV charger

Why stop with your house? If you’ve got – or are thinking about getting – an electric vehicle (EV), having your own personal EV charger means you can use the electricity you generate to conveniently charge your car from the comfort of your own home.

How much could you save?

Efficiency

What’s your exact annual electricity usage (kWh)?

If you have this figure to hand, we’ll be able to provide you an accurate savings estimation before sending you your quick quote.

What if I don’t know my exact usage?

Don’t worry! We can use the average energy usage in the UK to give you a rough figure. Which of the following best describes your home?

Low usage:  You have 1-2 bedrooms, only use energy for a few hours per day & your house tends to be empty on weekdays.

Medium usage: You have 3-4 bedrooms, use high-energy appliances frequently & your house often has people home during the day.

High usage: You have 4+ bedrooms, always use lots of devices at the same time & your house is rarely empty.

Based on your answer and the amount of solar panels in your recommended package, we’ll be able to provide a ballpark figure that’ll help you see just how much you could save each month by switching to greener energy!

FAQS

Your questions answered.

Rather than relying on the grid for your energy, the only thing you need to rely on when you go solar is the sun. Our solar panels are made out of semi-conducting materials, which means they are able to harness sunlight as it makes contact – creating an electrical current and powering your home directly.

Solar panels are a great investment in your future, but it’s important to understand that they’re not right for everyone. There’s plenty to consider before you can begin your solar journey:

  • Do you own your own home? At this time, we can only offer solar panel installations to homeowners, so if you rent, you won’t be eligible (unless you qualify for the ECO Scheme).
  • Is your home a listed building? If you live in a listed building, you’d need to contact your Local Planning Authority (LPA), and where necessary, apply for Listed Building Consent (LBC). If you’re unsure, you can check if your home’s protected by visiting Historic England and searching the National Heritage List for England (NHLE).
  • Does your home sit in a conservation area? Similar to above, if you think your home may sit inside of a conservation area, contact your Local Planning Authority (LPA), who will confirm, and let you know if you need planning permission to go ahead with your solar install.

Much like the traditional battery you’d buy for your TV remote, a solar battery storage unit works by collecting the energy generated – in this case by your solar panels – and storing it. This is particularly useful because solar panels naturally generate the most power during daylight hours, which is often when homes use the least electricity. With a battery, you can use your energy when you want – giving you complete freedom over your usage.

The number of batteries, or the size of your battery you’ll need will completely depend on your energy usage, and how much energy you need to power your home. Most households only need one battery to sustainably fit their needs, but if your home has an especially high energy output, you may need further battery storages.

An EV charger does exactly what it says on the tin – it charges up your electric vehicle, providing it power in the same way as filling up a petrol or diesel car would do. The charger pulls an electrical current from the outlet or the grid and transfers that electricity to your vehicle.

The EV chargers we offer are compatible with both Type 1 and Type 2 electric vehicles, which means they work with all electric and hybrid models – giving you the freedom to switch cars without worrying you’ll need a new charger.

Through the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, you could be eligible to claim free energy efficiency upgrades to your home, such as solar panels. The scheme is benefits tested and aims to help our most vulnerable customers begin their journey to energy efficiency.

Once we’ve installed your solar panels, you can also take advantage of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The government backed scheme allows electricity suppliers to offer a tariff so homeowners can sell the excess electricity they generate back to energy companies.

To apply, you’ll need your MCS certificate and number that’ll be provided when your solar panels are installed. Just print out the application form and return the form by post – or email it to SEG@utilita.co.uk

To see if you’re eligible, complete the short survey on the Utilita Home page by selecting ‘Apply’ and our team will be in touch within five working days to discuss your application. You can also get in touch with us at home@utilita.co.uk or call 01962 679048, and we’ll be happy to help.
