How our residential scheme works

Initial solar PV system valuation

Customers provide us with specific information about their solar PV system, including:

    Full postal address

    MCS Feed-in Tariff (FiT) Accreditation number

    The current system generation meter reading

We are then able to provide an ‘indicative valuation’ for your solar PV system based on today’s market value.

The price is valid for 30 days and is subject to a technical survey.

Should you wish to proceed with our offer, you will be required to sign a Heads of Terms Agreement along with a letter authorising us to speak with your Mortgage Company.

Technical Survey & Lender Consent

Once we receive your signed Heads of Terms Agreement, we will arrange for one of our Technical Experts to visit your home, at a time convenient with you.

They will review and confirm that your system is operating as per its original design and forecasts, and that the warranties provided by the equipment manufacturers remain live and valid.

Once the technical survey is complete, we will confirm our final offer.

We also need to consult with any lender who has a legal restriction (e.g. mortgage) over the property as part of the process of acquiring a solar PV system. In our experience most lenders are familiar with these systems and understand what is involved. We will deal with this on your behalf.

Sale Process

Once you have confirmed that you wish to proceed, we will issue you with a purchase contract confirming the values agreed, along with a solar rooftop lease and an authorisation to transfer your Feed-in Tariff Licensee.

A solar rooftop lease is registered at HM Land Registry and the details are recorded against the Title Register for your property.  This provides us with a form of security as a tenant in that the lease terms are transferred to any new owner, upon sale of the property, for the remaining period of the lease.

You will be required to sign and return the purchase contract, lease and FiT transfer documents to us.

Upon receipt of your signed documents we will:

  •     Execute the Agreements
  •     Pay the agreed funds directly into your bank account
  •     Assign the Feed-in Tariff payments to us
  •     Arrange for a new generation meter to be installed to enable us to monitor the system performance remotely (at our cost)
  •     Implement our operations, monitoring and maintenance agreement

It is a very simple, straightforward and transparent process.

You will be in control at every step of the process and have a right to cancel until such time as we have executed the Agreements and processed the payment of monies due to you for your system.
