Solar panel solutions to suit your home
6-8 solar panel installation
Generate up to 6.4kWh each day with 8 solar panels installed on your roof. Over the course of a year, this could save you around £675 in electricity costs.
12 solar panel installation
Generate up to 9.6kWh each day with 12 solar panels installed on your roof. Over the course of a year, this could save you around £1,000 in electricity costs.
16 solar panel installation
Generate up to 12.8kWh each day with 16 solar panels installed on your roof. Over the course of a year, this could save you around £1,350 in electricity costs.
Switching to solar panels is exciting - and we like to keep it that way. From our sales team to your dedicated project coordinator, we make stress-free solar a reality by keeping things simple.
We only use products that are tried, tested, effective and reliable. We tailor each solar panel system to your home (and budget). We offer shade optimised options and home batteries ranging from 5kWh to 13.5kWh.
With you every step of the way
From enquiry to solar panel installation (and even after that!) we’re with you every step of the way to make sure your journey to clean energy is as hassle-free as possible.
From scaffolding to the installation itself, you don't need to do a thing. After the average 4-day installation, all you'll be doing is immediately reaping the benefits from your new solar panel and battery storage system!
Peace of mind
Imagine never needing to worry about energy bills! By installing solar panels and battery storage, you protect yourself against unpredictable electricity prices by generating your own clean energy at home.
You're in control
Monitor and manage your electricity generation and usage through the app, as well as schedule off-peak times to store energy from the grid when it’s at its cheapest!
Charge your electric car
If you've already made the switch to an electric car, you can charge it with the power from your solar panels, if you have a compatible EV charger installed at home. Now that's driving on sunshine!

What our customers say
Questions about solar?
Is solar suitable for my home?
Even though every home is a little bit different, most homes in the UK are suitable to install and benefit from solar. It’s the perfect choice if you're looking to reduce your energy bills and do your bit for the environment. The main things to watch out for are obstacles (skylights or dormer windows), too much shading, not enough roof space and poor roof condition. Our team of experts is on hand to use satellite images to talk these things through with you as part of the process here at Egg.
Are solar panels a worthwhile investment?
Most studies have shown that powering your home with solar could cut your energy bills by as much as 90%. 90% savings over the duration of your 25-year performance warranty, is a lot of potential savings, so we think it's a no-brainer! There is also increasing evidence that solar panels can increase the value of your home, as more and more prospective buyers are looking for homes with renewable technologies already installed.
Do I need planning permission for solar panels?
Most installations of solar panels are considered to be a 'Permitted Development' and therefore don't require planning permission. However, you should check with your local planning authority if you live in a:
• conservation area
• area of outstanding natural beauty
• national park
• listed building
How do I decide the right size and location for my solar system?
You can get an initial solar panel recommendation and quote within 30 seconds by answering a few simple questions online. After that, it's over to us. We’ll send you a proposed design and give you a call to run through some options around the number of solar panels, exactly where they can be located on your roof, and an optional upgrade to add a battery to store up any excess solar you generate. Then it’s up to you to decide just how green you want to go!
What’s involved in a solar panel installation?
Solar panel installations will almost always require scaffolding to allow our team to safely access the roof. An installation job will generally take about 4 days which involves setting up the scaffolding, securely fixing your new solar panels to your roof, wiring everything up and then setting up your inverter (which is what takes the electricity generated by your panels and turns it into electricity that can be used in your home).
Once that’s all complete, our installers will talk you through a detailed handover and also set you up with a solar panel monitoring app so you can track how much clean energy you’re generating throughout the year.
Do solar panels need direct sunlight?
Solar panels are most efficient when they receive direct sunlight. However, they can still produce electricity on cloudy or overcast days and even in indirect or diffuse sunlight (luckily for us in the UK).
Do solar panels work in winter?
In short, Yes! Solar panel systems continue to generate electricity during the winter months, although their efficiency may be reduced compared to the rest of the year due a few factors, mainly the reduced number of daylight hours and a change in the angle of the sun.
How long do solar panels last?
Solar panels are built to endure and are designed for a long and productive life. On average, you can expect your solar panels to keep producing clean, green energy for an impressive 25 to 30 years. Some may even continue working effectively for 40 years or more! So, if you're pondering the benefits of solar energy, rest assured that your investment will continue to shine for many years to come.
What is the best direction for solar panels?
In the UK, the best direction for solar panels is south-facing. Solar panels installed on a south-facing roof will receive the most sunlight throughout the day, maximising energy production. If you don't have a south-facing roof though, all is not lost, solar panels are still effective even if they don't face south. Our team of experts can help you understand how much you could generate if you have an East, West or North facing roof - you might be surprised!!
Questions about storage?
What battery storage options are available?
We offer a range of home batteries with storage capacity from 5kWh to 13.5kWh. To make sure you have plenty of storage capacity, to collect any excess solar energy generated, to use later when you need it (even when the sun has gone down).
I’m thinking of getting solar panels, should I get a battery too?
A home battery is a great way to ensure that you store any excess energy you generate from your solar panels to use later in the day when you need it – for example, in the evening when the sun has gone down. Especially if you’re not using as much energy during the day when your solar panels are generating energy, a battery makes sure you don’t lose out on that hard earned green energy – as without a battery, if you don’t use your solar energy it gets lost to the electricity grid. This means you’d instead have to rely on more expensive, less green energy from energy suppliers instead.
Also, installing a battery at the same time as your new solar panels means your battery qualifies for the same VAT rate as solar (instead of 20%) – so getting them together gives you an extra smart saving!
How can I monitor how much energy my battery is storing?
All of our home battery options come with an app which allows you to monitor the performance of your solar panel and battery storage system, including a live view of how power is moving between your solar panels, your battery, and your home.
Should I get a battery if I don’t have solar panels?
You absolutely can – but you should consider the benefit of doing so, which is significantly less if you don’t have solar panels. It is possible to sign up to a “time of use” tariff from your energy supplier (e.g. Economy 7) which would allow you to charge up with cheaper electricity overnight to use during the day for a modest saving, but with energy prices constantly changing we advise you give it some real thought first.
