Terms and conditions:

  • When the work is completed, your house must be at a BER rating of C or better
  • Systems up to 7 panels (about 2.2kw) do not require planning but if you want a larger system, you may wish to consult your local planning authority to see if a system over 7 panels can be exempt from planning.
