Faultless from start to finish. Couldn't have received a better service!I started looking into solar panels and a battery and stumbled across NXTGEN from Facebook. I reached out to them and dealt with Bobby, Bobby is incredibly knowledgeable and a genuinely nice guy. He answered lots of questions, designed multiple options for me, but most of all he listened and offered his professional opinion.Unlike other companies I spoke to Bobby understood why we wanted solar, why we wanted the givenergy battery and our budget to design a system that would work brilliantly.NXTGEN offered a personal service rather than the generic 4 bed hour is 12 or 16 panels etc, they listen and come up with the best solution.After we settled on the set-up we were passed to Kelly. Kelly handled all the admin side and seemed to always want to help. There were no delays on NXTGENs side and managed to get all our certificates etc quicker than expected.Once it was all agreed, deposit paid etc it came onto the installation.NXTGENs scaffolding arm came and put up the scaffolding on Wednesday, lovely chaps all very polite , respectful and friendly.Thursday the solar team turned up and set straight to work fitting the 20 panels, inverter and battery. Yet again, a lovely bunch of guys who were all polite, respectful and friendly. It was a two day install and they completed it on Friday. They showed me the whole system got it all up and running, apps connected etc.I would genuinely recommend them to everyone and have already passed on their details to my work and friends. They offer a great service at a very competitive price.Solar feels like the new double glazing sales where you get pestered and pushed into options. However that is completely not how NXTGEN operate, they are the complete opposite.We opted for 20 panels, 5kwh inverter and a 9.6kwh battery. While the inverter is slightly undersized, we achieve great energy even in cloudy conditions, we only lose out on super sunny days and it wasn't worth for us to get the bigger more expensive inverter.

Choosing a solar installer is a nightmare, we are so glad that we found NXTGEN. From the initial contact with Steve, the quote from Bobby and the installation by Connor and his team this has been seamless and stress free. They supplied quality equipment at a reasonable price, excellent technical knowledge and advice, all supplied and installed on time. As anyone knows its so difficult to choose a company as there are so many pitfalls , we cannot recommend NXTGEN highly enough so pleased we chose you.

We initially used NxtGen for our consultation and this went really well. NxtGen then subcontracted to Cozy Energy, which again was fine. The installation went well. It was then that things started to go awry. Cozy failed to supply us with a guarantee, MPAN or MCS certificate. Over a period of approximately six months, we were promised that "this was being dealt with", or "someone would get back to us", but nothing was resolved. It was then that we re contacted NxtGen and they could not have been more helpful. Whilst it did take a while, all of the issues have been resolved and Kelly at NxtGen could not have been more helpful. I would thoroughly recommend NxtGen.

If your in the market for a Solar installation then I can really highly recommend Nxtgen.We researched the technology and got several quotes from other companies most of which were located much closer to us.Nxtgen came out on top on price , specification and delivery.Once we made the decision to proceed the whole process took less than a week from placing the order to complete installation.The scaffold was erected at the front and back of our house on the Wednesday,on the Thursday the installation team arrived at 8.30 sharp , having driven from Essex to Oxfordshire, (which is about a 3 hour drive) and after a quick cup of tea the 3 chaps got straight to work, by the end of the day the whole system was in place and commissioned and up and running. To install 6 panels on front roof plus 6 panels on the back roof CW birdguard with the inverter and battery in the loft,They tidied up and left around 7 in the evening with another 3 HR drive in front of them I have to say they did a fantastic job , I take my hat off to them, they are a credit to Nxtgen.Darren and Kelley from the Sales and admin team at Nxtgen are very helpful and accomodating and made the whole process very easy with prompt responses to any queries we have had along the way,although it's early days and the system only 2 days old the savings are already racking up.Well pleased , I'd post 6 stars if I could, well done Nxtgen

I chose NxtGen to install our solar and battery system having received 12 quotes from various companies and couldn’t be happier with either the service or the resulting system.I work in the renewables industry and so came to my own project with a reasonable amount of knowledge, not that I made that clear to any of the installers who called me back.I had spoken with 7 installers by the time Stuart at NxtGen called me, and it was immediately obvious that I was speaking to someone knowledgeable, honest and who was genuinely interested in designing a system specific to my own needs and preferences.Having reviewed all 12 quotes, NxtGen was jumped out above all others based on knowledge, helpfulness, quality of the kit being offered and even price. I wouldn’t have picked a quote based purely on price, but the fact NxtGen was also the most competitive of the 12 I had received meant a great deal.I was kept informed throughout the whole process, Stuart responding quickly and usefully to all my email queries. Once contracts had been signed, Kelly picked up the baton and gave me regular updates on our DNO notification, all the way through to the installation.With DNO approval in hand, we waited just 10 days for the scaffolding to be put up, which was done within a couple of hours and to a very high standard. Plenty of care was taken to protect our new patio, and I was left confident in a job well done.Installation happened just a few days later, and again, it couldn’t have gone any smoother. The 3 installers were all helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and keen to do a good job. The work has been completed to a very high standard, with all wiring very neatly finished and the panels tightly aligned to the exact centre of our roof. The inverter and batteries were also installed incredibly neatly, with all cables hidden. The installers did a great job tidying up on the day and the left us with nothing other than a very positive experience.I was genuinely hopeful that the brilliant first impression I got when I spoke with Stuart would be reflected throughout the entire install, and so I’m beyond delighted that proved to very much be the case.Stuart, Kelly, the scaffolders and the installers should take a great deal of pride in being part of such an excellent team.Thank you to the whole team, I couldn’t be happier and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend NxtGen.

We had Stuart as a project manager who was super. We had solar panels and a house battery fitted and they are excellent. The process was quick and professional and Stuart was super responsive to any questions or emails I sent. The electricians were also excellent. Thank you

Great experience on a 7KW solar installation in Hampshire. I sought quotes from many installers beforehand and this was one of the most reasonable. (theres a lot of opportunists out there who'll happily charge a few K more!) Really good decision - Sean managed the whole process end to end, great communication & a quality job that looks great and delivers ample power. Much recommended to anyone taking their first step on the Solar journey.

Like most people I sat other fence for aged, I only wish I had jumped months ago. NXT GEN were by far te out competitive qoute that fulfilled my requirements.Sean arranged installation quickly without any hassle or pressure, the installation was done in one day by a very knowledgeable skilled team who just got on with installing the system.Totally happy with how it's been so far as it's only been 6 days sonce installation yet I've already seen substantial savings on electricity costs.My advice would be just give NXT GEN a call when seeking quotes.

With the energy crisis starting to bite (autumn 2022). We did some research on the various options available we decided that we wanted to install solar panels to ease our energy bills. We obtained three quotes. Nxtgenenergy ticked all of the boxes as far as we were concerned and did happen to be the cheapest. We were helped all the way from quotation to the final installation by Stuart and Sean and at no time did we feel under any pressure. As the system was only installed two days ago we have yet to discover the full potential of the system, but we are encouraged by the performance seen so far. I will be honest and say that my prime concern is to save money, I am sure that my installation will not save the planet. From the projections given to me by Stuart I may be able to achieve a return on my investment of up to 10% per year compared to the small returns I could get if I kept my money invested elsewhere.I look forward to monitoring the system performance over the coming months / years.

Really positive experience with Nxtgen. In danger of becoming a solar power evangelist. We needed our roof replaced as well and they handled everything. New roof is first class and I can't stop looking at the app to see how much we are generating. Sean made the system selection clear. Already considering another battery!

I dealt with Sean at NXTGen over a six month period due to a complicated installation. I only have praise for Sean who kept to his word throughout the entire job which is now running satisfactorily. I recommend this company amidst the many that are in the same business knowing you will be supported through the planning and installation stages.

In looking to install solar and battery this year, Nxtgen were by far the most responsive and helpful company. They had a lot of options compared to other companies, which is good but worth swatting up before so you know whats, what. Ended up with a good sized system, inc battery storage, installed quickly at a good price that so far is working well. This is impressive as demand is so high for this at present, some companies wait lists are months and months!

The installers were quick and did a good job including the electrical work and inverter/battery installation. The system has been working well according to the app I have. I wholeheaartedly reccommend Next Generation - they are experienced and their customer care is excellent. Good to know I am in safe hands in the future!

Great system installed and working perfectly as expected. System design was changed at my request numerous times effortlessly. On day of install engineer suggested better location (loft) for inverter and battery pack meaning no unsightly cables were seen. Great customer service throughout. Getting MCS certification was a bit slow but not the fault of the company. I would definately recommend. Great company and top spec system at a good price.

Wynn Dunstable Solar PV System Inverter and Battery

Introduction

This case study delves into a residential solar panel installation of a 7.83 kW solar PV system in Harlington, Dunstable, designed & professionally installed by MCS Certified NXTGEN Energy Ltd. We’ll explore the technical details, financial projections, and environmental impact.

Solar Project Details

Installer: NXTGEN Energy Ltd.

Location: Harlington, Dunstable, UK
Technology: 18 TrinaSolar Vertex S+ 435W Dual Glass N-Type Solar Panels (7.83 kW Solar PV System)
Installation: January 2024

Solution

NXTGEN Energy Solar Energy Specialist Bobby proposed a 7.83 kW solar PV system tailored to the specific needs and roof characteristics of this customers home.

Here’s a breakdown of the key components:

  • Powerhouse Panels: 18 TrinaSolar Vertex S+ 435W Dual Glass N-Type panels boast superior light capture and high reliability, even in harsh conditions. Their white backsheet enhances aesthetics and improves temperature management.
  • Inverter Brains: The Growatt SPH 6kW Dual MPPT Hybrid Inverter efficiently converts DC electricity from the solar panels to usable AC power for your home appliances. Its dual MPPT technology maximizes solar energy harvest by tracking the performance of individual solar panels, even under uneven sunlight conditions.
  • Battery Backup: The Growatt GBLI 6.5kWh LFP Solar Battery empowers energy independence. Excess solar energy is effectively  stored, allowing you to tap into clean power even when the sun sets or hides behind clouds, which happens a lot in the UK.
  • Solid Foundations: The Fastensol pitched roof solar panel mounting system, specifically designed for concrete tiles, secures the solar panels firmly and reliably, weathering the elements easily.

Results

  • Sun-kissed Savings: This Solar PV Array has an estimated annual energy generation of 6,766 kWh translates to potential savings of about ÂŁ3,045 in the first year alone. Over the solar PV system’s expected lifespan of 25 years, the financial gains can be substantial.
  • Payback Period: The initial investment of ÂŁ9,831.58 is projected to be recouped within 3 years through reduced electricity bills. This timeframe makes the solar PV system an attractive investment, especially considering the rising cost of National Grid-supplied electricity.
  • Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) Scheme: This UK government initiative rewards homeowners who export excess solar energy back to the National Grid. With an estimated 2,656 kWh of excess solar energy exported annually, you could earn additional income while contributing to a cleaner energy future in the UK.

Impact

  • Carbon Footprint Reduction: By displacing National Grid-sourced electricity, this solar PV system is estimated to save about 1,437 kg of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions annually. This translates to the environmental equivalent of planting 66 new trees or taking a car off the road for about 5,131 miles.
  • Clean Energy Champion: By generating your own clean power, you’ll be actively contributing to the fight against climate change and promoting a more sustainable future for the UK.

Challenges

  • Shading Analysis: The property has a potential shading factor (SF) of 1.00, indicating a minimal shading impact on the solar PV system’s output. However, NXTGEN Energy did a thorough on-site assessment to confirm this and identify any potential obstacles with the solar PV system installation.
  • Roof Suitability: NXTGEN Energy also ensured the roof structure could safely support the weight and wind load of the solar PV system. A site survey determined its suitability and any necessary reinforcements.
  • Upfront Investment: While the long-term financial benefits are promising, the initial cost is a significant factor. Exploring financing options and government incentives like the Green Deal Loan can make the investment more manageable.

Conclusion

The proposed solar PV system for Dunstable presents a compelling case for harnessing the power of sunshine through installing a solar PV system. With its potential for significant financial savings, reduced environmental impact, and increased energy independence, it’s a worthwhile investment for the eco-conscious homeowner. Careful consideration of technical specifications, financial projections, and potential challenges helps ensure a successful solar journey.

Remember, this case study is just a starting point. Consulting with a qualified solar PV installer like NXTGEN Energy for a personalised assessment and free no-obligation quote on 01268 928 690 or email info@nxtgen.ltd tailored to your specific property and needs is crucial before making any final decisions. Let the sun power your future, one bright kilowatt at a time!

Matt Alexander’s Solar Energy Success Story

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.

What are Solar Panels and Solar PV (Photovoltaics)?

Solar panels are devices that can produce electricity from sunlight. They are composed of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which are made of materials that can convert light into electric current. This process is called the photovoltaic effect. By installing solar panels on your home, business or community, you can generate your own renewable energy and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.

This can help you save money on your electricity bills. Solar panels have become more efficient and affordable over the last 10-years, thanks to technological innovations and government incentives. NXTGEN Energy can help you find the best solar panel system for your needs and budget.

As one of the best solar energy companies in the UK we lead by example. We are driven not only by our commitment to solar power for the future, but also to provide transparency. Making our customers our top priority.

Our Solar Services

Solar Panels

Solar Panels or Solar PV (Photovoltaics), capture the sun’s solar energy and converts it into energy for your home. At NXTGEN Energy we primarily use high-end panels from Hyundai, JA Solar or Trinasolar, depending on which is the most appropriate for your solar energy system setup. Solar Panels are most efficient when used in conjunction with solar battery storage. We are MCS Certified Solar PV Installers. Have you checked your installer on https://mcscertified.com?

Solar Battery Storage

Using solar batteries to store the electricity you’ve generated will help you to maximize the amount of renewable energy you use. At times when you’re generating more energy than you’re using, the excess can be stored so you don’t lose it. Excess energy can potentially be sold back to the grid or kept for times when you need more energy than you are generating. We are MCS Certified Battery Storage Installers. Have you checked your installer on https://mcscertified.com?

Electric Vehicle Chargers

By providing another way for you to reduce your carbon footprint, Electric Vehicles (EVs) are more popular than ever. EVs are an eco-friendlier alternative to traditional gas guzzlers and with the price of petrol and diesel rising at a unprecedented rate they’re more economical too. Installing a home charger for your EV ensures you can charge your car whenever it’s idle at home, for most motorists, this means waking up to a charged battery every morning, no more hanging around a petrol station at a public EV charging point.

What is the best roof direction for Solar Panels?
South-facing roofs are ideal, as they get the most sunlight and the highest sun intensity. East or west-facing roofs are also good, as they get enough sunlight in the morning or afternoon, with only a small loss of generation. North-facing roofs are not recommended, as they get very little sunlight. Flat roofs can use mounts to tilt the solar panels at the best angle. You can contact us for a remote survey of your roof suitability.
Is my home suitable for Solar Panels?
Solar panels can help you generate your own renewable energy, but they are not suitable for every property. You need to consider your electricity consumption, your roof characteristics, the shading level and the radiance level of your location. If you want to know if your property can benefit from solar panels, contact us for a solar assessment.
Do I need planning permission to install Solar Panels?
Solar panels are usually allowed without planning permission, as long as they are not higher than the property, not visually intrusive, and not sticking out more than 200mm from the roof. However, some properties, such as listed buildings or conservation areas, may need planning permission for solar panels. You can contact a NXTGEN Energy solar expert for advice if you are unsure.
What is the difference between Mono and Poly Solar Panels?
Mono-crystalline and polycrystalline are two types of solar panels that differ in their efficiency, cost and appearance. Mono-crystalline panels are made of single-crystal silicon, which produces more electricity, but costs more. They have a dark or black colour. Polycrystalline panels are made of multiple fragments of silicon crystal, which produces less electricity, but costs less. They have a blue or speckled colour.

Why not add a Solar Battery to your Solar Panels

You can save more money when you use a Solar Battery with your Solar Panels System

Our Solar PV Packages provide you with a complete solar energy solution for producing and storing your own clean and renewable energy. With Solar Panels and Solar Batteries, you can capture sunlight and convert it into electricity, and then save the excess electricity in a battery for later use. This way, you can use more of your own green energy and less of the National Grid electricity, which can help you reduce your carbon footprint and more importantly reduce your electricity bills.

Solar Panels are devices that capture the sunlight and convert it into electricity. They are made of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which are materials that can create electric current from light. Solar Panels can be installed on your roof or on the ground, depending on the space and orientation available. Solar Panels can reduce your carbon footprint and your electricity bills by producing your own renewable energy.

Solar Batteries are devices that store the excess or unused electricity produced by your solar panels. They can be connected to your solar panel system or to the grid, depending on the type of battery and inverter you have. Solar Batteries can help you use more of your own solar energy and less of the grid electricity, especially during the night or on cloudy days. Solar Batteries can also help you earn money by selling your surplus solar energy back to the grid through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) scheme.

Our Solar PV Packages offer you a complete solution for producing and storing your own solar energy. We have different packages to suit your needs and budget.
