  • Mounting System: Fastensol pitched roof mounting system, specifically designed for slate roofs and ensuring secure panel installation.
  • Additional Equipment: Bi-directional meter, cables, connectors, isolators, and other components for safe and efficient system operation.

Solar Results

  • Energy Generation: About 10,600 kWh annually, potentially covering a significant portion of the client’s electricity needs each year.
  • CO2 Reduction: About 2,250 kg annually, equivalent to offsetting the carbon emissions of driving about 8,000 miles in an average petrol car.
  • Financial Savings: About £3,200 in the first year, with a payback period of approximately 9 years. Potential for additional income through Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) Scheme payments.
  • Environmental Impact: Reduced reliance on fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal and contribution to a cleaner energy future in the UK.

    • Positive environmental contribution: Active participation in the transition to renewable energy and combating climate change.

Key Features

    • South-facing roof: Ideal roof orientation for maximizing sunlight exposure and energy generation as the UK is in the northern hemisphere, and therefore south-facing roofs get the most sun.
    • Minimal shading: Ensures optimal solar panel performance and minimizes energy loss.
    • MCS accredited system: Meets MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) industry standards and qualifies for the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) Scheme payments.
    • Battery storage: Allows for storing excess solar energy for later use, increasing self-consumption and reducing grid dependence.

A 5-Star Review of NXTGEN Energy’s Products & Services

The work’s been done to an incredibly high standard. The cabling is really neat, the system is performing fantastically well, and we can’t believe how much money we’ve saved already. So, generally a big thank you to Stuart, Kelly and everyone at the NXTGEN team, who have done a really, really good job from start to finish.

We really couldn’t be more pleased.
