Norwich Solar Panels

The city of Norwich is home to over 140,000 people. Average earnings are lower than in other parts of the region, so the city's residents are interested in anything that helps them to save money on their household bills. The city of Norwich has an average of 1,700 hours of sunshine every year, which means installing solar panels is a viable way of doing this.

In 2011, the city council signed up for a scheme to install solar panels on many of Norwich's council homes. The Saffron Housing Trust has also fitted panels to many of the homes they have in the city. This means that the sight of solar panels on the roofs of Norwich homes and businesses is now quite common.

The City's Solar Installers

The city of Norwich is home to over 20 independent solar panel installers including; Thrower & Hammond, Norfolk Solar Ltd, Connect Renewables Ltd, Solar Anglia Ltd and Excel Electrical Services. They are all MCS accredited installers, so the systems they install meet government standards and allow home owners and businesses to claim money from the government via their Feed in Tariff scheme.

Firms like Sands Solar and Pro Solar Power are also members of the REAL (Renewable Energy Assurance Scheme). They follow an additional set of strict guidelines that are designed to protect consumers who choose to have renewable energy systems installed. This means that the city's residents have remarkable choice when it comes to installing solar power.

Norwich's Award Winning Installers

Furthermore, the city is also home to several award winning solar power installers. Norfolk Solar are based in nearby Bowthorpe. They won the Norwich Eco Award in the outstanding small business category and were part of the award winning BroadSol project that has helped over 60 home owners in the area build their own solar thermal systems.

Pro Solar and Starfish Installations Ltd also install award winning solar systems.
