Where can I get solar panels installed?

We’re based in Castleford, but we install domestic solar panels anywhere in the UK. Here’s just a few of those places.

Energy Price Guarantee


Here’s what you need to know about the energy price guarantee:

It’s currently set at £1,928/year from January to March 2024.

The rate will be reviewed and amended every quarter, so the rate will change in April 2024, decreasing further to £1,690.

It will remain in place until April 2024, after it was extended
from April 2023.

While prices for electricity have come down a little they are still way up on a decade ago. In 2014 electricity was around 16p per kWh – it’s now 28.62p.
Prices will continue to fluctuate. 

It’s worth noting that the guarantee does not limit how much households will pay. Instead, the energy price guarantee is a figure calculated on what the ‘average household’ is likely to pay. So, the price you’ll pay remains dependent on your actual energy usage.

 The unit price has decreased on electricity itself, standing charges have increased from 54p to 60p – so your overall bill won’t change much. 

Energy Price Increases

Average energy prices increased by 27% in October 2022, which was 96% higher than the winter 2021/22 price cap.

Energy prices will increased by a further 20% in April 2023.

Gas increased by more over this period, up by 141% since winter 2021/22.

Electricity increased 65% from 2014 to 2021/22

As costs continue to be unstable, solar power is becoming increasingly attractive to households all over the UK.



While there are plenty of reasons to invest in home solar panels, combating the rising cost of living is a primary concern for many customers.
With a residential system from Solar Fast, the average household can save as much as 8
0% on energy bills. 

However, it’s worth considering that potential savings vary on your energy usage.

What are the top 5 benefits of solar panels for your home?

Beyond benefiting your bottom line, solar panels offer a whole lot more. Below are just a handful of the benefits of residential solar panels.

1. It will save you money


2. It's Renewable Energy

Unlike fossil fuels, solar power is renewable and infinite. Solar power is available every day globally and will only stop once the sun goes out … in about 4 billion years.

If there is daylight, we can generate power thanks to solar technology.

We are battling an increasingly concerning climate crisis. Investing in solar panels means you’ll sleep better a night knowing you’re doing your bit for the planet. 

The best bit? As technology advances, solar panels are becoming more efficient every year!

3. You can store the energy

When you invest in a battery storage system for your solar set-up, you can bank energy to use around the clock. 

So, while solar panels require daylight to generate energy, you’ll be accessing that power when the sun sets.

4. You can make money

Speaking of energy storage, you can actually earn money from any excess you don’t use. 

Thanks to the  Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), households can make money by exporting renewable electricity back to the grid. 

If your system meets eligibility requirements and you have a smart meter that can provide half-hourly export readings, you’ll qualify for the tariff.

5. Solar Panels are Low Maintenance

Residential solar panels have an impressive life span – with product warranties of 25 years and performance guarantees of 30. 

The best bit? Once installed, solar panels require little to no maintenance.

Furthermore, as solar panels are often placed at an angle, the rain will keep your set-up clean by washing away any dirt or dust – maintaining their effectiveness. 

So, it turns out rain is good for some things.

Solar is fast becoming one of the world’s most popular energy solutions. Why? Because it’s renewable. 

In short, if the sun exists, so does solar power. 

Unlike other sources of energy, such as gas and coal, which aren’t infinite, we’ll never run out of solar power.

We believe in educating consumers in the basics of solar energy. 

When sunlight hits the cells, they become energised,
creating a direct current.

The direct current is fed into the inverter, which
converts it from DC to AC (Alternating Current)

Solar Battery storage is optional, but it allows you
to store excess energy to use throughout the night.

With enough solar battery storage
you can even charge your EV overnight.

One of the most common myths associated with solar panels is that you need to live in a sunny
country to work. Thankfully, the great British weather isn't a problem because visible light
is sufficient to produce the energy you need to power your home.

Your excess energy can also be sold back to the grid,
the price of which determined by an agreement
with your energy supplier.

Use your free solar energy to power your home.

Simply put, solar panels use photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s UV rays and convert them into electricity – powering your home. 

When sunlight hits the cells, they become energised, creating a direct current. 

An inverter converts the energy from ‘direct current’ into ‘alternating current’ that can power household items.
