“totally honest, very reliable and a thoroughly nice person to deal with”
South West Free Energy offer Solar Panels (PV) systems to both domestic and business customers in the South West. We are fully accredited Microgeneration Certification Scheme Installers enabling our customers to qualify for the generous tax free clean energy cash back or feed in tariff as it’s otherwise known.


South West Free Energy are members of the REAL Assurance Scheme. This consumer code is run by Gemserv on behalf of the government. As members of this scheme we have to work to a set of rules. These rules ensure that all our quotations are to a high standard allowing our customers to have all the information necessary to allow them to make an informed decision as to whether a Solar PV system is the correct choice for them. Should the customer proceed with the installation then the REAL Assurance Scheme offers the customer the peace of mind that the system will be installed correctly and to a high standard of service.


South West Free Energy supply and install all our Solar PV systems ourselves. We do not subcontract out the installations as a number of other companies do. You can be assured therefore that the person carrying out the initial survey, providing the quotation, commissioning the system and then showing you how it all works will be the same person. We do however employ the services of a scaffolding company and an experienced roofer to work with us ensuring the highest quality of workmanship.


The company is owned and run by Simon Herbert a fully qualified Chartered Electrical Engineer and a Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET). With over 30 years experience of electrical building services working for national companies, consultant engineers and running his own business here in Devon he has the knowledge and experience to ensure your renewable energy system will be professionally designed and installed.
