It’s easy to spread the cost of solar

Spreading the cost of your solar system with a loan for 3, 5 or 15 years gives you flexibility when you need it. We’ve teamed up with Shawbrook to provide a range of finance options.

Call us on 0800 334 5996. Your application should take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Following a successful application, we will contact you to take payment for your survey fee via a credit or debit card. We’ll then get you set up for a survey, followed by an installation, followed by a lifetime of abundant clean power!

How much will it cost?

We will show you representative examples of monthly repayments and guide you through the application process.

The example is based on a typical finance purchase for a 3.1kWp blue system spread over five years and is for guidance only. Your exact repayments will be calculated by Shawbrook and will be given on your credit agreement form. Spreading the repayments across a longer period can help to reduce the size of your monthly repayments.*

*Though the overall total loan amount will increase

Representative example:

  • Cash price£5,825
  • Deposit (0%)††£0
  • Total amount of credit£5,825
  • Duration60 months
  • Interest rate9.3% p.a (fixed)
  • Representative APR%9.7% APR
  • 60 monthly payments£121.77
  • Total amount payable£7,306.20

Including IKEA Family discount

†† No deposit is required with our finance offer though you can still make one of up to 25% of the total cost of your solar system if you wish. You must however make payment of a survey fee of £125 for an assessment of your property (non-refundable once survey has been carried out). This must be paid for all installations and is separate to your credit application.

Make extra payments to your loan

You can make extra payments as and when you please, reducing the length of your loan and the amount of interest you pay. Interest is charged on the outstanding balance only, therefore increasing your repayments reduces the total cost of your loan.

Early repayment

You will be able to make early repayments on your loan subject to certain conditions. Full details of how to do so will be available from Shawbrook on request and will also be set out in your credit agreement with them.

Pay no deposit with the finance option

Flexible terms mean you still have the option to make a deposit of up to 25% of the total cost of the solar system if you wish. We can then calculate the balance to determine your monthly payments based on the term you select.

You must still pay a survey fee for an assessment of your property. This must be paid for all installations and is separate to your credit application.
