Rushcliffe Solar

Rushcliffe Solar started as a Transition West Bridgford campaign to encourage greater use of Photovoltaic home power generation systems in Rushcliffe borough, but we are always willing to answer an enquiry from other towns in the region. There are many buildings and entire streets with roofs which have a good view of the Sun and could produce power for the Grid and Income for the occupants. Hit the You Enquire tab to get a free appraisal of the photovoltaic potential for your building. Email:
If you are thinking about it, do not be put off by recent changes in the tariff!: Since April 2012, the tariff was reduced to 21 pence/unit and ones on poorly insulated buildings get only 9 pence/unit. There have been further reductions since. Use the Expertsure calculator to check out your house and see if it is still worth doing.


Rushcliffe Solar is a non-commercial research unit, formed 2010. Our main focus is the Rushcliffe area, but we will do a PV estimation-survey for anybody from anywhere who requests by email or using the Enquire tab on this site.
   Rushcliffe Solar is a University of Nottingham+Transition West Bridgford initiative and was given a pump-priming grant by Rushcliffe Borough Council.  After mid-September 2010 R-S is dependent on sponsors from the industry, who help us knowing that our service to clients is entirely free, but that we also treat all suppliers evenly.

It needs to be said that Rushcliffe Borough Council and the Energy Saving Trust, Transition WB and Rushcliffe Solar do not endorse any single installer or installers - they and we are neutral and pluralist.Sponsor-installers do not add a charge to quotations if customers have come via Rushcliffe Solar. There is no referral charge. We are confident you will get the best prices, and good customer service from all these listed.
For us, it is also an important energy-saving idea to support local businesses with short mileage to the sites in the Rushcliffe area - installers on our list must have East Midlands location, and we will accept no more than ten.
Please inform when you decide to proceed.
We request clients of Rushcliffe Solar who have used our free advice to ask for prices from our list of sponsors - not all, but a representative sample, like picking three from our list. Check their websites, and try them by phone. Please don't just pick from the top three on the grid, please pick from the whole list.
