Solar PV Servicing & Repairs


Are your Solar Panels working to their full potential? When was the the last time you cleaned them?

Inverter Replacement and System Optimisation/Repairs -

If you were lucky enough to install Solar PV at the beginning of the Feed-in tariff then your PV systems will be approaching 7 years old. We are working with an increasing number of customers that have had Inverter failures, issues with old wiring, broken panels and meters. We offer:

  • An open and honest approach and only quote for work that is needed

  • A 3 year workmanship and 10 year Inverter warranties on all replacements

  • An upgrade or refresh of your system components to improve the performance by up to 40% and increase the amount of feed-in tariff savings you will get.

  • A “remove and replace” service for any electrical upgrades or roof repairs.

  • A Solar Panel Cleaning Service to ensure that your panels can make the most of the sunshine.

Solar Panels for your home


Even with the Feed-in tariff ended, Solar Panels are still a great way to save money, generate your own energy and save carbon.

New Solar PV Systems for Homes - save money and take back control of your energy needs

We have a dedicated in-house team that installs Solar PV on domestic properties across Southern England. Our goal is to work with you to find the right technology package to help reduce your electricity bills and become more efficient. You can benefit from:

  • Saving money on rising electricity bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

  • The new Smart Export Guarantee to generate income from exporting any spare energy back to the grid.

  • Integrating Solar with Battery Storage, an EV Car Charger or Air Source Heat Pump to make full use of the free energy generated by your Solar panels.

How do you save money:

By installing a standard 4KWp Solar Panel installation generating an estimated 4,000kWhs you can save up to £800 per annum on electricity costs. For every kWh you generate you are saving up to 18p on electricity bought from the grid. Including Battery Storage or Solar Immersion Heaters means you can use up to 100% of the electricity generated during the night or by heating your hot water ready for the family to come home in the evening.

Battery Storage - making the most of your Solar


Why export excess energy to the grid when you can use solar energy at night and maximise your savings?

Battery Storage - Optimising existing Solar PV Systems

Whether you are thinking about a new Solar PV system or have an existing install, adding battery storage will help you increase the savings from the energy you will generate. Many households are out during the day and only use 50% of the electricity generated from the solar panels. Installing battery storage can:

  • Maximise electricity savings by using the stored energy in the battery at night

  • Provide grid backup power (system dependent)

  • Charge the batteries in off peak times to use during peak times (system dependent) to save money.

  • Link to your Electric Vehicle and charge when convenient to you.

We have experience of installing a range of different technologies from suppliers including Solis, BYD, Pylon, LG and Tesla.

How does Battery Storage Work?

Basically your Solar Panels charge the battery during the day using any excess energy to provide you with free electricity when you get back home.

  1. Energy generated from the Solar PV is used for the homes demands

  2. Any excess energy generated is then used to charge the battery rather than exported back to the grid

  3. Other technologies like solar immersion controls and EV car charging can be setup to share the excess energy

The idea is that no solar energy is wasted by being sent back to the grid. The graph below shows the Old Dairy B&B Lympstone. They have a Bright Spark designed and installed battery storage system and are using solar power for 22-23 hours a day.

The Green Line is the Battery Charge, the Red Line is the Battery Usage and the Orange Line is the Grid usage - Only power from the grid is between 07:30 and 08:00 in the morning.

EV Car Charging Points

One of the frustrations of a new electric vehicle is the speed it charges at home on a traditional three pin 13amp plug.

Installing a Home charging point for your PHEV / EV is a great way to increase the charging speed for your new electric vehicle or just to add value to your house.

  • We can supply 16/32 amp Chargers from multiple brands connected on a dedicated circuit at any location. Up to 10x faster than a traditional 13amp socket

  • Our Installers are OLEV approved and install to BS7671 standards.

  • Government grants are available to subsidise your charging point installation

EV Car Charging points are also a great addition to Battery Storage, Solar PV Car Ports or a garage fuse board upgrade.

Solar Car Ports


Want Solar Panels but your roof not suitable or you are living in a listed building? We can install a Solar Car Port to not only provide Solar panels to charge your car but also power your house.

Solar Carports - providing your house and EV with free electricity

A Solar Car port is a great option for customers that want to benefit from Solar PV but do not have either the roof space or live in a listed building.

The car ports can provide all of the power needed for charging your Electric Vehicle as well as powering your home. We have multiple options available including single, double, triple bays, LED lighting, battery storage, car charging.

All Car Ports can be made bespoke to all your requirements.
