    How Much Money Can Solar Panels Southampton Save Me?

    As solar installers Southampton, we’re already helping homes switch to green energy. And whilst switching to green energy is a huge motivator for many, there’s no denying that the amount you’ll save each year is appealing too…

    Your exact location, weather, particular solar array, and energy prices at the time of any comparison will affect your annual savings, but according to the latest figures (July 2023) from the Energy Saving Trust, houses in the South East area could save, annually:

    • £350 – when out all day until 6pm
    • £565 – when home all day


    Up to £610 annual savings

    Commercial Solar Panel Installers Southampton

    As a solar installation company that’s dedicated to helping as many buildings in Southampton and the surrounding areas go green, we’re also proud to offer our commercial solar panel installation services in Southampton. We can design the perfect solar PV system for your commercial premises, meaning your business relies less on traditional energy sources, and more on the energy you produce on site. 

    The annual savings (through energy bill reductions) you make year on year will eventually stack up enough to cover the initial cost of your commercial solar panel installation. The initial cost is also lower than ever since the Annual Investment Allowance means you can reduce the cost of a commercial solar panel system by 19% with support from the government.

    Will I Need Planning Permission For Solar Panels Southampton?

    At DES Renewable Energy, we make the whole process of installing solar panels as streamlined and simple as possible. 

    Thankfully, our simple solution is helped out by the fact that most solar panel installations come under ‘Permitted Development’, meaning you won’t usually need planning permission for your solar installation, unless:

    • the solar panels are to be installed on a listed building, conservation area, or national park
    • the solar panels exceed limits with regards to their size, height, and distance from the property boundary
    • it is likely to impact on the overall look of the building or its surrounding area

    Any planning permission snags can all be ironed out when you work with us. As an expert team of solar professionals, we’ll be able to guide you through the entire installation process, every step of the way, with zero stress.
