Our solar systems harness the power of the sun to provide clean and renewable energy for your home. With expert design and installation, you can enjoy reduced energy bills, increased energy independence, and a smaller carbon footprint.

Key Benefits

  • Lower energy bills
  • Increased energy independence
  • Reduced carbon footprint


How do solar systems work for residential properties?

Solar systems capture sunlight through photovoltaic panels, converting it into electricity to power your home. Excess energy can be stored in batteries or sold back into the grid.

What are the benefits of installing a solar system for my home?

Installing a solar system can significantly reduce your energy bills, increase your energy independence, and reduce your carbon footprint by using clean, renewable energy.

How long does it take to install a solar system?

Installation times vary depending on system size and complexity but typically range from a few days to a couple of weeks.

What maintenance is required for a solar system?

Solar systems require minimal maintenance, mainly consisting of occasional cleaning to remove dust and debris from the panels to ensure optimal performance.

Can I still use electricity from the grid with a solar system installed?

Yes, solar systems can be designed to work in conjunction with the grid, allowing your home to draw electricity from the grid when solar production is insufficient, such as during the night or cloudy weather.

Our battery storage solutions allow you to store excess energy generated by your solar system for use during peak demand times or grid outages. With backup power when you need it, you can enhance energy resilience, reduce reliance on the grid, and maximize cost savings.

Key Benefits:

  • Enhanced energy resilience
  • Reduced grid reliance
  • Maximized cost savings


How does battery storage complement a solar system?

Battery storage solutions store excess energy generated by your solar panels for use during times of high demand or when the sun isn't shining, maximizing self-consumption and reducing reliance on the grid.

What size battery storage system do I need for my home?

The size of the battery storage system depends on factors such as your energy usage, the size of your solar system, and your backup power needs.

How long can a battery storage system provide backup power?

The backup power duration depends on the size of the battery storage system and your energy usage but typically ranges from a few hours to several days.

Are there any government incentives for installing battery storage?

Yes, battery installations have been exempt from VAT since February 2024. Also, depending on your location, there may be additional government incentives, tax credits, or rebates available for installing battery storage systems. These incentives can help offset the initial investment and make battery storage more affordable for businesses.

Can battery storage systems be integrated with existing solar installations?

Yes, battery storage systems can be integrated with existing solar installations to enhance energy independence and resilience. Proper design and installation ensure seamless integration and optimal performance of both systems together.

Are battery storage systems safe for residential use?

Yes, modern battery storage systems are designed with safety features such as thermal regulation and overload protection to ensure safe operation in residential settings.

Our EV charging points provide convenient and sustainable charging options for electric vehicle owners. With fast and efficient charging, compatibility with all major EV models, and support for your sustainability goals, you can enjoy hassle-free charging at home.

Key Benefits:

  • Convenient and sustainable charging
  • Fast and efficient charging
  • Support for sustainability goals


How do EV charging points work for residential use?

EV charging points supply electricity to charge electric vehicles at home, typically using either Level 1 (standard household outlet) or Level 2 (dedicated charging station) charging.

What types of EV charging points are available for residential use?

Residential EV charging points come in various types, including Level 1 chargers that plug into a standard outlet and Level 2 chargers that require a dedicated circuit installation.

How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle at home?

Charging times vary depending on the vehicle's battery size and the charging speed of the EV charging point, but a full charge typically takes several hours.

Can I install an EV charging point at my home if I don't have a garage?

Yes, EV charging points can be installed in driveways or carports, provided there is access to electricity and suitable space for installation.

Can I use an EV charging point with any electric vehicle model?

Yes, most EV charging points are compatible with all major electric vehicle models, including plug-in hybrids and fully electric vehicles. However, it's essential to ensure that the charging point you select meets the charging specifications of your specific vehicle to ensure compatibility and optimal charging performance.

My property's layout made this a slightly difficult installation, for both the solar panels and the storage battery, and so there were inevitably a few glitches along the way. What was most impressive was that at every turn the customer services and technical support staff were immediately on the case and could not have been more helpful. I have rarely experienced such friendly and supportive service - it almost made it a pleasure to have some minor issues to deal with. I'd highly recommend this company based on my experience.

We had a massive 8KW , 26 panels installation of solar energy completed by Home Smart energy just recently. The entire process went without any issues - right from the initial surveys to the installation surveys and the actual installation. Richard and Tom installed our panels on the roof and did a through job . They went above and beyond and even cleaned up our roof, gutters and other wiring and removed an old satellite dish pole. 5 stars all the way and highly recommended

Faultless service from initial contact to final installation. Knowledgeable salesman, competent electrician and installers. They came, they saw, they installed, they checked it was working, they left everything tidy. I'm sure any after sales care will be of just the same standard. Panels and batteries have been in place for just over 3 months and we can generate and store electricity and I hope to be able to export spare electricity to the grid.

I've been very impressed with Home Smart Energy. They fitted my Solar panel array and battery storage system March 2023. Since then whenever I've needed to call the Technical department for any minor issues they have always been more than willing to assist me. Very proactive company. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Great experience, Tom and Richard did an efficient job fitting the panels and electrician Tom likewise in doors Thank you all

We received a letter in the post from our local council regards solar and exploring different tenders. Smartfoam were the company to win the tender and they have been a breeze to deal with. The flyer came through in October and the panels were installed by January. Good communication, everything has been quick and efficient. Install was very fast (we had 13 panels and battery). No mess no damage. Everything was explained and the app system is a great idea, love watching the In going and out going stats. All the documentation was received within days of completion too. Highly recommend. Thank you.
