Any reduction in energy bills, including reduction due to PV solar panels or other system, fixture or appliance, is – like levels of energy consumption and bills calculated under the SAP - based on a number of factors and assumptions, including but not limited to assumed occupancy levels, personal lifestyle, habits, heating profiles, consumption behaviour, levels of and changes to energy prices, maintenance of the property, and weather patterns.
The estimates provided here are based on typical usage patterns at the time of publication but will vary on an individual basis and should be treated as indicative.
