Solarbarn has installed over 150 Solar PV systems in the last two years alone, on homes, farms and schools in the Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow and Bishops Stortford area. Here’s what some of our customers have to say.

“Please accept my thanks to everyone at Solarbarn for an excellent job successfully carried out by an excellent team.They were always ready to answer all my questions, very knowledgeable and polite. A credit to your company. I will recommend Solarbarn to anyone who asks.” John Hiller, Littleport.

“We would totally recommend Solar barn for a Solar installation. Robert and his team are complete professionals. Robert’s advice and knowledge is above and beyond. The installation team made a fantastic neat and tidy job from start to finish, always keeping us informed of what was happening next right up to switch on. We are both completely satisfied right from our first initial meeting right the way through to the signing of the paper work. Top Team all round.” Steve & Sarah Scarr, Cambridge.

“Having looked at four solar panel installers, we opted for Solarbarn from our shortlist of two.  It was one of our best decisions.  We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Solarbarn. Every stage from explanation through planning to installation of our 16 panel array was a model of efficiency.  The price was very competitive and there were no hidden extras.  Above all, everyone from the company was extremely competent, courteous and punctual. Quite the best workers we have ever employed. The system was up and running in a very short time, 13 days from acceptance of the quotation to commissioning, and that included just 3 days on site. A terrific job by a terrific team.” David Richer, Great Wilbraham

“May I say how completely delighted we are with the finished installation. The advice and workmanship from you and your team has been first rate, a real pleasure from start to finish. Dominic, James and Alan are all great professionals who were friendly, enthusiastic, and keen to do the best possible job.  An excellent experience all round, and I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team.” Brian Brooks, Henham


“Solarbarn installed a 25kW solar panel system on refurbished pig sheds at our farm.  Extremely knowledgeable and helpful from planning to commissioning and beyond. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this company.” Roger Pryor, Ugley, Essex



“Refreshingly honest approach, after pushy saleman-like patter from several other companies.  Solarbarn were extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  The installation was carried out by efficient, friendly and pleasant guys.  Back-up paperwork and registration process were all dealt with and the product more than lives up to expectations, with absolutely no downside.” Peter Foks, Catmere End

“Solarbarn have now supplied and installed two commercial-size Solar PV systems for us.  One on a nursery school and one on a barn.  Both systems are 20kW.  Solarbarn’s input and experience were particularly valuable on the farm installation as they discovered during their structural survey that the barn roof needed strengthening to take the weight of the solar array.  Very happy to recommend a very professional company to any farm or business considering solar PV.” Andrew Wisbey, Spriggs Farm, Essex


“Solarbarn came when they said they would, did what they’d told us they’d do, in the time they said they’d do it, with a small, friendly and courteous work team. They cleared up efficiently and left us with our solar panels, starting to produce electricity immediately, in a way we are able to check each day. We couldn’t be more pleased.” Peter Elwell, Chelmsford


“On a good day we can generate 250kWh of energy – over £80 worth – which all goes straight back into the distribution network. This time of year, even cloudy days never produce less than 100kWh and on average we reckon the figure is around 200kWh. Across the year that works out at £1,300 per month income. In the summer, post-harvest, we will be using some of the output to power our energy-intensive electrical grain dryer but, at the minute, it is all going back to the grid.” Alan Abrahams, Thurrocks Farm, Saffron Walden

“I was very impressed with the service I received from Solarbarn. From initial discussion to final installation Robert and his team have been helpful, friendly and highly professional. Installation was very effectively completed with a minimum fuss and no mess and to the time scales promised.” Moray Bayliss, Wimbish

“From beginning to end, efficient, professional and courteous. The system now is generating exactly what had been predicted; highly recommended.” Neil Harris, Sawston

“The initial assessment from another supplier was that my roof was of the correct orientation and size for a Solar PV installation. But when Robert Flynn from Solarbarn visited my house he noted the size of the chimney and the shadow which it casts over the roof for most of the morning. Although disappointed, I was impressed that Solarbarn were able to give me a thorough and objective projection, without any of the hard-sell antics that the other companies had tried to use.” Peter Podgorski, Stansted Mountfitchet

“I have been fascinated and delighted by the whole Solarbarn experience. If you need to show any prospective customers a system, Fran and I would be delighted to show them round. Thank you!” Richard and Frances Galloway, Bishops Stortford

Solar Panel Ground Installation

“The solar panels were installed quickly with minimum disruption. We found Solarbarn’s installers to be friendly and efficient and have already begun to see a healthy return on our investment. For these reasons, and bearing in mind the cowboy installers that are out there, we would have no hesitation in recommending Solarbarn to people interested in having photo voltaic solar panels installed on their property.” Jon Stebbings, Saffron Walden

“Solarbarn guided us throughout the whole process and our Governing Body were particularly impressed with the variety of options available to us and the detailed advice that Robert provided. The installation was swift and highly professional with no disruption to the school at all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Solarbarn to any local business.” Hilary Goldsmith, Business Manager, Saffron Walden County High School
