As the days grow longer and the sun shines brighter, there’s no better time to harness the power of solar energy. With summer in full swing, homeowners across Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, and Bristol are turning to solar panels and battery storage to save on energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint.

Here’s why the start of summer presents an ideal opportunity to switch to solar energy, and why Solar Planet is your go-to platform for sourcing quotes from reputable MCS-accredited installers in your area.

The Benefits of Summer Solar


  1. Abundant Sunshine: With longer daylight hours and clearer skies, summer offers optimal conditions for solar panels to generate electricity. This means you can maximise your energy production and potentially offset a significant portion of your electricity bills.
  2. Financial Savings: By generating your clean energy from solar panels, you can reduce your reliance on grid electricity and lower your energy bills. Additionally, many regions offer incentives and feed-in tariffs for solar energy generation, providing further financial benefits.
  3. Environmental Impact: Choosing solar energy helps combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with traditional fossil fuel-based electricity generation. By investing in solar panels, you’re making a positive contribution to a more sustainable future.
  4. Energy Independence: With solar panels and battery storage, you can store excess energy generated during the day for use during the evening or low sunlight. This enhances your energy independence and resilience, particularly during grid outages or peak demand periods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is summer the best time to install solar panels and battery storage?

Summer offers the longest daylight hours and generally more consistent sunny weather, which means solar panels can produce more electricity. Installing in summer allows you to maximise the immediate benefits of solar power when it’s most abundant.

How can installing solar panels save me money?

Solar panels reduce your reliance on grid electricity, lowering your energy bills significantly. You can also benefit from government incentives, and if your system produces more electricity than you use, you might earn money back by supplying the excess to the grid through feed-in tariffs or similar schemes.

What is an MCS-accredited installer?

An MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited installer is certified to ensure that installations meet strict criteria for quality and compliance. Using an MCS-accredited installer is often required to qualify for government incentives and guarantees that the equipment and installation are of high quality.

How does Solar Planet help me find the right installer?

Solar Planet connects you with a network of trusted MCS-accredited installers in your area. After you provide some basic information about your needs, Solar Planet will match you with local installers who will offer competitive quotes, ensuring you get the best service and price.

Can I still benefit from solar power during cloudy days?

Yes, solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy days, though the output is reduced. With the addition of battery storage, you can store excess energy generated on sunny days and use it when the production is lower, ensuring a steady supply.

What is battery storage, and why should I consider it?

Battery storage systems store the electricity your solar panels produce but you do not immediately use it. This stored energy can be used at night or during cloudy days, enhancing your energy independence and ensuring you make the most of the solar power you generate.

How long does it take to install a solar panel system?

The installation time can vary based on the size and complexity of the system. However, most residential solar installations can be completed within 1 to 3 days once the planning and permits are in place.

What our customers say

I was thinking about getting solar for my home and stumbled upon The site's super easy to get, breaking down all the solar jargon. After reading up for a bit, I filled out their quote form. The next day, I got calls and emails from three solar companies in South Wales. Chatted with all of them, got quotes, and went ahead with one. The whole experience was smooth, and all the companies seemed top-notch. Big thumbs up!

Caroline McleanCardiff Resident

Running a business, those rising energy bills were starting to pinch. So, we thought, 'Why not try solar?' A quick online search led us to Solar Planet. Filling out their quote form was a breeze, and guess what! The very next day, three solar experts from Bristol gave us a shout. They were all super helpful and knew their stuff. Picking one was tough since they all had great offers. And a big relief! They all had this MCS accreditation – a real peace of mind with all those dodgy stories you hear these days.

Daniel JonesOn The Blink - Commercial Business in Bristol

It couldn't have been easier! Initially, we were scratching our heads trying to find a trustworthy company. Then, thanks to a quick Google search by my husband, we landed on Solar Planet. He filled out their quote form, and the next day, three different solar installers rang us up. We've been over the moon with both the installation and the ongoing support. They guided us through the whole process from installation to helping us find the best energy provider for solar power.
