Rising energy costs

  • Fuel prices are going through the roof, and there’s no sign of them slowing down any time soon.
  • Our dependency on fossil fuels and outdated technology is polluting the planet.
  • Repairs can be extremely costly.
  • Increasing demands on an ageing National Grid mean brownouts and blackouts may become more frequent, leaving you with no power source.

Clean, inexpensive energy

  • Enables you to generate your own electricity, massively reducing your energy bills.
  • Zero emissions are produced, making the energy you produce carbon neutral.
  • Solar installations are guaranteed for 25 years+ and maintenance is minimal.
  • Reduced dependency on the National Grid - when everyone else’s lights go out, you’ll still be running on full power.
