General advice

Research thoroughly

It’s vital to have a good idea of what type of renewable energy you want before you start getting quotes for the project. Which kind of renewable energy would you like to have on your property? How big is the scale of the installation? Consider the answers to these questions before you begin the project to save time spent getting quotes for work that you don’t need.

Decide on a budget

Have a detailed look at your financial situation and decide how much you can afford to spend. Remember to take into account any government grants or subsidies such as the Feed-in Tariff. You should also account for how much you are likely to save on your current energy bills. By doing this, you’ll have a good picture of how much you can afford to spend, and the likely return on investment you’ll generate.
