Are You Tired Of

Energy Bills

Paying high energy bills every month?

Electricity Outages

Constant electricity outages giving you a headache?

Energy Capacity

Not using energy to Its full capacity?

Value Back

Not getting back the value you pay for on energy bills?

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.

Optional information
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.

Very competitive pricing, knowledgeable about the products and expected return and answered al my questions. Initial panel installation was seamless, with care and attention to roof structure.... Subsequent installation of electrical equipment was smooth, tidy with full demonstration of safety features and safeguards, along with detailed instruction of user operations. To early to comment on solar performance but cannot recommend Start Solar highly enough. 5 more

Had the solar panels for almost a year now and seeing the benefits already! The cost of our gas and electric for the summer months was covered by the yearly SEG payment (for electric sent back to... the grid that we generated) which is great to have free bills for over a quarter of the year. Although we didn’t have much dealing with the team directly as the panels were installed as part of our new build, they’re always friendly when see them in the development working on the many other homes!read more

The guys doing the work were very good at their jobs, worked with us when locating the internal bits and kept us well informed at every stage. All in all a really professional, polite team.

Having shopped around Start Solar made the effort to be the most competitive. Good products available at my request. The installation was far quicker than originally expected and the quality of... workmanship is the best. Also the warranties offered were the longest possible. Would more

A group[p of four of us decided after lots of research to go with Start Solar. we all had an excellent and pain-free experience from the initial survey, quotes, installation and follow up. The panels... were installed expertly and no small detail of hiding cables was too much for the team. Its great even today at end of November with a bit of sunshine seeing we are producing 3kw and it's heating our water. we have definitely used less oil. Highly recommend solar panels and Start Solarread more

Great service from start to finish.The online portal was great for information on the products and for keeping everything together. System was installed nearly two weeks earlier than expected. John... and Fergal turned up early in the morning and had everything done by 2pm. John was a very tidy worker and fitted everything where I wanted it and did a very professional installation.We have had two sunny days since the installation and can already see the more

I can only give great feedback to the Start Solar team. I had great service from start to finish, with clear information and a speedy installation meeting my requirements. The scaffolding was... installed the day before and the whole installation of 16 panels, inverter and battery were installed by a great team in one day. The installation guys were respectful, clean, removed all waste and ensured fuller operational before leaving.Couldn’t recommend the team more to someone thinking about a solar and battery more

Start Solar provided a first class service, the installation comprised 2 teams, 1 for for the solar panels on my roof and the other was the electricians who carried out the internal work and they... were all very tidy and professional. They completed the entire installation in a single day as well which was a very pleasant surprise as I had requested a few additions including back up batteries ( highly recommend them) and the EDDI water heating system ( which is a godsend!!) as well. I have no problem recommending Start Solar to anyone who is considering installing Solar more

I dealt with Suzie Walker from the outset. She made everything very clear and straightforward which was the main reason I went with this company.I really appreciated that as other companies I checked... out wanted Whatapp meetings to even get a quote. I think this loads on pressure to go with a company which I don’t like!I have my solar panels installed, I have no hesitation in recommending this company as from start to finish I found them very efficient to deal with including the installation guys. Thanks to all the team! Majella Drumshanbo, Co Leitrimread more

Had 12 panels, battery and hot water diverter installed by the team at Start Solar. We couldn't be happier with their service. Suzie explained our options. Sam and Aaron sorted out the electrical... components and the guys who put up the panels (sorry I didn't get your names). Everything was done extremely efficiently and we've never had workmen so neat and tidy. We even spent ages trying to find where the cables for the panels entered the house, they were so neatly done.We would have no hesitation in recommending Start SolarAndy & Diane Latimerread more

Can't recommend Start Solar enough, their customer service and sales staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable without being pushy and the whole process was very simple. Their installation team... were great, listened to my requests and did what was best for our house while keeping things neat and very tidy - you wouldn't know work was done after they left (other than the new electric boxes and panels!). All of the communication has been quick and easy and I would definitely use them again if I needed to in more
