Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use Solar Guide?
It couldn't be easier. There's just one simple form to complete, and once you've told us your requirements, we will call or email you to make sure we have all we need to get your solar quotes. Up to 3 approved installers will then contact you to provide quotes. They will need to visit your property in order to evaluate the job properly. Then it's down to you to compare and select the quote that suits you best.
Are the quotes free?
Yes, our service provides you with solar installation quotes for free. And you're not under any obligation to accept any of the quotes either. All we ask is that you are serious about getting quotes.
How many quotes will you provide for me?
To get the best possible price we always recommend you get more than one quote. Once you've submitted your enquiry we will endeavour to put you in touch with up to 3 approved solar installers.
Why should I use Solar Guide?
Solar Guide has built up a national network of approved and recommended solar installers to provide you with hassle free quotes to install solar PV or solar thermal. We do all the hard work for you, saving you time and probably money by comparing quotes. And don't forget the quotes are completely free.
Can I get quotes online?
No. Due to the nature of the work involved we are unable to provide quotes online. Our trusted traders will need to visit your home to see exactly what's involved before they can price up the job. That way you can be assured that you are getting the best price.
Who will contact me?
After you've submitted your enquiry online, a member of the Solar Guide team will give you a call. Once we've confirmed your details and your enquiry has been released to our network of installers you will be contacted by no more than three installers. They will attempt to contact you by phone but where necessary may send you and email too.
How long will it take to get quotes?
Within a matter of hours. After you have submitted your enquiry online our approved installers will contact you to make an appointment to provide you with a quote.
Do I have to accept one of the quotes?
Absolutely not. We want you to be happy with the quotes we provide. So there's no obligation to accept any of the quotes unless you're completely satisfied with the quote. Don't forget to ask for a written quote before you go ahead, too.
Why has no one contacted me?
This is a very rare occurrence. However, on the odd occasion your requirements may not match our installer's criteria. If this is the case we will let you know within 7 days of submitting your enquiry.
What happens to my details when I submit my quote request?
How do I login to my account, I don't have a password?
When you submitted a quote request you will have received an email to set your password. If you are unable to locate the email simply enter your email address here and we will send you further instructions.
Are your solar installers MCS registered?
Yes. Solar guide has only MCS certified (or equivalent) installers, so you are assured that all of the quotes you receive through Solar Guide's service will make you eligible for the current energy export schemes.
