We provide unbiased and informative advice so that our customers can make an informed decision without being pushed in any particular direction.

Procurement Options Include:

- Financed solar installation. Solar Selections can help source attractive finance models for the installation of a PV array. Under certain circumstances a Financed Solar Installation can remain cash flow positive from year 1. Click here to read more.

- Fully funded solar, a fund will pay for the installation of the system in return for the Feed-in Tariff and a highly competitive fee for the power produced (Otherwise known as a Power Purchase Agreement). Rates as low as 6p/kWh can be experienced on the right site.

- Funded Energy Efficiency Makeover, for a site consuming over £30k per annum in electricity and heating bills, a fund will pay for various energy efficiency measures to be installed, including; Solar Pv, Biomass, LED lighting, etc. In return the fund will take a percentage of the actual savings experienced by the upgrades for a contract term of 5 - 10 years. Once the contract term is up all of the upgrades and associated benefits are handed over to the property at zero cost.

Our service is free to customers. We are able to broker improved prices than what can be accomplished by contacting commercial installers directly.

Please see our Solar Feed in Tariffs page for a break down of the eligibility of certain system sizes to the various generation tariffs.
