Free Solar Panels in the UK

Free Solar Panels

If you like the idea of powering your house with free renewable electricity, but don’t want (or can’t afford) the large initial outlay costs of solar panels, then a free solar panel scheme may be the perfect solution. A company will install solar panels on your roof for free, and you get to use the electricity – sounds too good to be true, but it is easy to request a quote for free solar panels.

Free Solar Panel (or Rent a Roof) schemes are a very simple concept. If your property is suitable, and meets the installing companies requirements (eg. favourable roof orientation and pitch), they will install a solar panel system on your roof at no cost to you. You will then benefit from free solar electricity (or a proportion of the electricity generated).

So, how does the solar panel installers make money? Why would they give solar panels away for free? When solar panels are used in a domestic setting, solar panel owners are paid a fixed rate tariff for every unit of electricity the system generates. The government backed scheme is called the Feed-in Tariff, and normally this would be paid to the property owner, but as the solar panels are provided free, the installing company keeps these payments.

Solar PV Panels

Solar PV Panels (or Photovoltaic Panels) capture the sun’s energy and turn it in to electricity. The process uses layers of semiconducting materials, such as silicon, that create an electrical current across the layers when exposed to sunlight. Solar PV panels do not require direct sunlight to generate electricity, and still produce energy even when it is cloudy.

Free Solar PV system owners can take advantage of free renewable electricity to power their homes. If your property is suitable for free solar panel installation, the solar pv panels will be installed on your roof, at no cost to you. You will then receive the electricity (or a proportion of the electricity) generated, and the FIT payments will go to the installer.

We can help you find a trusted Free Solar PV Panel installer in the UK.

Solar Thermal Panels

Solar Thermal Panels (also known as solar water heating) are a type of solar panel that uses the sun’s heat to warm water for use in your property. The solar energy heats water passing through your solar panels, and the heated water is then passed through coils within your water cylinder. The heat is transferred to the water within your water cylinder, and can then be used within your house for heating, drinking, bathing, etc.

Similar to the feed-in tariff for solar electricity production, solar thermal users can benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which pays you a fixed income for every kWh of heat your system generates. 

Unfortunately, free solar panel schemes only apply to solar photovoltaic panels, but you can still request a solar thermal panel quote and take advantage of the renewable heat incentive.
