Rent My Roof
Your chance to be part of the country’s biggest solar giveaway.
Thanks to a government-backed scheme, we're able to install solar panels free of charge on eligible roofs - and even with UK weather, that could save you a third off your electricity bill.
Not only are the panels free, but so is the installation. And we'll maintain the whole system free of charge for 25 years. Just call us on 033 33 55 1000, give us a few details and we'll let you know if your roof is eligible.
To give you a feel, basic criteria for a free solar system are summarised below.
We know all this may sound staggering – but it's genuine, and part of our U Energy programme. Because of the way our business works, there are specific requirements of roofs for completely free solar.

Benefits of Free Solar
No big upfront investment
You don’t have to commit yourself to a big upfront payment, and you start making electricity net savings much, much faster
Free electricity from the sun
You can use as much as you like of the free enery produced by the system (it will work when there is daylight). And, of course, your savings will increase as energy costs rise.
Free maintenance service for 25 years
You and U Energy want your solar to perform fantastically. You don’t need to worry - we fully monitor and maintain your system, including replacing a worn out part such as the inverter (Which has a likely life of 10 years and costs around £1,000).
Improve the value of your home
Surveys suggest that home buyers look for energy efficiency and renewable energy measures like this.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Solar is ‘clean’ energy, and on average you save 1 tonne of CO2 every year with solar vs using electricity which has been produced from burning fossil fuels like coal.
