Solar Panel

At Trent VC, we design and supply bespoke solar panel systems that are tailored to your usage, enabling you to save money on your energy bills. Plus, if you have an electric car, we will provide you with a system that includes an EV charger allowing you to charge your car from the energy you produce.


Solar PV Panel Installation


If you have an electric car and drive 20 miles or less a day you could charge your car for free using solar panels*.

Trent VC’s Free Driving for Life renewable energy kit consists of:

  • 4Kw solar panel system (10 solar panels)
  • 5kwh battery storage
  • 7kw EV charge point
  • plus, any ancillaries that your home requires for the set up.

You can have the full kit or just the parts you need. The Trent VC team will talk you through your options and advise on the best solution for your budget.

We offer a free site survey and consultation where we visit your home to collect all the information we need. From this, we will design you a system that is bespoke for you and issue you with a free no obligation quote.

* Free Driving for Life is based on the annual consumption of a 10kw solar panel system producing 3,400kwh per year, annual daily mileage of 20 miles, using a standard 7kw domestic electric vehicle charger as supplied. Meaning you will have produced over the amount of 8.65kwh per day to charge your car to 25miles.

OZEV stands for the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles. This government organisation is part of the Department of Transport and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. This body is responsible for promoting and supporting low emission vehicles schemes across the UK.

Each car manufacturer will provide information on their EV models’ charging connections. Type 1 has 5 pins while Type 2 has 7 pins. A universal charging point has the capacity to fit all types of chargers. All our chargers run on between 3-7 kW AC.

The distance of the single charge depends on the vehicle in question. Most modern EVs are capable of travelling hundreds of miles on a single rapid charge. For example, a 30-minute charge at a rapid chargepoint results in 250 miles in a Hyundai Kona Electric or 138 miles in a Nissan Leaf.
