Why Solar

Thanks to a Government backed scheme, clean energy doesn't just save you money, it earns you money too.


Every year, with a Hanergy solar system you will make money in 3 distinct ways:

  • 1

    Generate money

    The Feed-in Tariff pays you 13.39p for every kWh you produce, whether you use it or not

  • 2

    Sell back to the grid

    Export your excess electricity to the grid and earn an additional 4.77p/kWh

  • 3

    Reduce your bills

    Your solar system will generate free electricity, so you SAVE buying at least 50% from your expensive utility each year.
