Welcome to the UK’s only price comparison website for solar panels. Compare solar prices for your home, and filter by panel brand and system size. Search our network of 100+ installers and refine calculations for your own roof. Invite up to three installers for a free and non-obligatory site visit, and get our personal phone advice about going solar.

We provide solar installers with a tool to differentiate themselves in the market though their level of experience, warranty, prices and quality of materials. All MCS accredited installers can join our network. We get paid a referral fee by installers that have joined us. This does not result in higher system prices, as we make their customer acquisition process more efficient. We lower installers marketing costs and increase their conversion rates through site visits with consumers that proactively choose them.

Our website has launched in January 2011 in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Belgium. Currently we have over 100 solar installers that work with us, and this number is growing rapidly.
