First, the roof needs to be surveyed by a professional to determine the suitability for solar panel placement. A sturdy, well-constructed, south facing roof would be ideal.
Next, you will need to have a chat with one of our solar technicians to determine how powerful a system you would like to have for your property.
Finally, all that is needed is the appropriate panel mounting hardware and access to the loft or attic space for the placement of the system inverter.
Installation time and cost will rely on the size, scope, and complexity of the project. A typical system install will take 1 to 2 days of work. Additional time maybe required obtaining the appropriate permits or for example if the customer wants a backup battery installed.
After surveying the property in question, we can give a more accurate estimate for installation time and cost.
The regular rainfall we receive here in Scotland cleans roof mounted panels of debris well enough, but under certain circumstances panels may need to be manually cleaned. From time to time you should also check for cracks in the panels, monitor the system output, inspect the condition of your roof, and look over system components for wear and tear.
If your system is damaged in any way please have a look at our solar PV system repairs information page and get in touch with us.
SEG is an obligation set by the government for licensed electricity suppliers to offer a tariff and make payment to small-scale low-carbon generators for electricity exported to the National Grid, providing certain criteria are met.
Sunlight is a hugely under utilised source of pollutant free, earth-friendly renewable energy. Typical home solar PV systems will keep between 1 to 2 tonnes of carbon from entering the atmosphere annually.
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of sale, and as home buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties with solar panels will continue to grow.
Electricity generated by your solar panels feeds directly into your house, so it will power any appliances you use during daylight hours. Because the value of the energy you use will increase as electricity prices rise, your savings will increase over time and could be reinvested in battery storage, allowing for this free electricity to be used at anytime day or night.
