British Gas mySolar Energy is now offering British Gas customers the opportunity to rent your roof and receive a Standard solar PV system and installation worth £14,052.15.
If your property is suitable this means we will pay for the system and the installation of the panels on your home*.
Once the panels are installed and up and running you can start to generate your own electricity. So not only could you help reduce your carbon emissions by over a tonne, you could also reduce your electricity bills by up to £152 per year**.
Things to consider
You will need a pitched roof of at least 20m2 of south roof space for a 2.52 kWp system or at least 23.8m2 of south facing roof space for a 3.15 kWp system (We will not install on outbuildings, ground mount the panels or install on flat roofs).
You will need to be the freeholder of the property.
We will require you to enter into a lease, on our standard terms and conditions, of the roof and of the airspace where the solar panels will be located.
British Gas will own the solar panels.
You may need planning permission if you live in a listed building, conservation area or world heritage site.
There needs to be a metered supply of electricity to the property. We can not install PV unless there is one present. The household must also comply with Part P electrical standards (subject to offer terms and conditions).
We will supply and fit, at no cost to the house owner, solar PV modules to the outer surface of the roof, an inverter and other electrical equipment inside the roof/loft space and run and connect this equipment to the house main consumer unit usually near the front door or under the stairs.
Solar panels are designed to withstand tough environmental conditions but if they do require maintenance and/or repair we will cover these costs.
As part of the free solar PV offer you will benefit from the electricity that your panels generate which means you could save up to £152** off your electricity bills. British Gas will claim and keep the Clean Energy Cashback (Feed-in Tariff).
It is likely you will need your mortgage or insurance lenders permission. We will help you to do this.
