How is the Solar Panel Funding Grant Scheme Funded?
The free solar panel scheme from Solar Panel Funding is funded entirely through customers that do not qualify for the grant.
Once we have spoken to a customer and ascertained that they do not qualify for a grant, we will assess their suitability for either option 2 or 3 of the campaign.
Providing the customer meets the criteria and consents to looking in to the other option, we arrange a no-obligation home survey so the customer can get the facts and figures to make an informed decision whether solar is right for them.
If they agree to the home survey, Solar Panel Funding will then pass that customer to the installation company that covers their postcode.
Solar Panel Funding is paid a fee for this referral, a portion of this referral fee is entered into a fund which is set aside entirely for the installation of free solar panels for qualifying homeowners.
How many free solar panel installations will be granted?
The number of Grants completed depends entirely on the success of Solar Panel Funding; the amount of funding is driven by the number of customers that use solar panel funding to arrange quotations. Our aim is to provide as many free systems as possible.
What is the criteria for Free Solar Panels?
