Savings Projections

Find out more about the savings available from Solar

When considering installing a solar panel system, it’s important to accurately project the potential savings it will generate.

To do this, we only follow the guidelines set out by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Site Visit

We will get in touch and arrange a site visit to suit your needs. We’ve got you covered. Day, evening, weekend? We know it’s got to work around you and possibly other people.

Measure up

We will come over and measure a host of things, we try to avoid pricing without all the information.

At no point will you be asked for a sale here, we don’t agree with that practice.


We will go back to the office with all the data, calculate what we need and put the rest into our system.

We create a detailed picture of: performance, repay rate, lifetime savings and cost.


Finally we will arrange another visit so we can help you “decipher all the jargon”.

We know some of the graphs and data isn’t so easy to understand, so we walk you through it.

How much can I save?

We can provide you with detailed information on your estimated yearly savings, how quickly the system will pay itself off and also how much money it will save you after it has paid itself off (i.e. your profit on the system).


An average lifetime profit projection is between £20,000-£30,000 after it has repaid itself (on a £10,000 system).

Our largest residential system to date had a projected total savings of £78,000 after it has repaid itself (on an £18,000 system).

Generally the higher the spend, the larger the return but there is a point where we reach diminishing returns (savings don’t scale vs system cost).

We can analyse this and work out the sweet spot.

Calculating return on investment

These projections take into account factors such as the size of the system, the orientation with he angle of the roof and the location of the property. These factors can impact the amount of electricity the system generates, and thus, the savings. Then we then take other aspects to create our projections. Electricity usage per month, time of usage (i.e. do you work from home during the day or not), weekend usage or battery storage.

More Savings?

Another big consideration for many, is the ability to save money by charging electricity on cheap rates overnight. This gives him access to a much cheaper rate of electricity for a set period, granting great additional savings. For more information on this, please get in contact.

Other ways to save with solar

That’s right, more savings. There are other systems we can implement to utilise the sun’s free electricity.

Systems such as electric vehicle charging (EV) or water heating can be great ways to boost savings and this is just a start…

MCS Accreditation

The MCS provides a framework for assessing the performance of systems. It is a requirement that projections are provided.

We following MCS guidelines to ensure that projections are as accurate as possible, giving homeowners a realistic expectation of the savings they can expect to make from a solar installation.

Our calculations are verified as part of our yearly MCS assessments to ensure they are within their guidelines.
