“We know that people often dismiss green measures as too expensive before they’ve looked into it and that’s why we’ve introduced the quick quote for solar panels, to enable people to make that informed decision about solar energy”, said Les Yates of Local Quoter.

“We already offer our loyal customers the lowest quotes for things like double glazing and other home improvements and this was the next natural step towards creating energy efficient homes”.

Solar energy is an environmentally friendly way of harnessing the sun’s power to heat water and homes and with global warming, climate change and high electricity and gas bills at the forefront of people’s minds, solar power is one way of addressing all these things in one step. Installing solar panels can give you half of all your hot water for free over the course of 12 months, saving you huge amounts of money and reducing your carbon footprint.
