solar panel questions

faqs Do I need a south facing roof for solar panels?

Solar panels work well on any roof facing South, SE or SW. Although your Solar Panels will perform better and produce more electricity if they are South facing, they will still perform at 86% (compared to South facing) either facing due East or West.

How much roof space do I need for solar panels?

Solar panels can be fitted to your roof or on your land. Generally an 8-panel solar PV system would be one of the smallest we would recommend and this could easily fit on the roof of an average 3-bed semi detached house.

Do I need constant sunshine for my solar panels to work?

No, solar panels work in all daylight conditions and actually work at their optimum at 10ºc. In fact, if it gets too hot they start to become increasingly inefficient. 

How do I compare different makes of solar panels?

Your panel choice will usually combine a number of factors including aesthetics, value for money, performance, track record and guarantees. Our engineers know the market and can advise you on the panels that will suit your needs.

What guarantees will my solar panels come with?

Your solar panels will come with a manufacturer’s guarantee of performance. Different manufacturers offer different guarantees, with the more premium levels of protection usually associated with the more expensive panels. It is advisable to ensure you fully understand the guarantee before you purchase.

How long will my solar panels last?

Apart from the inverter, solar PV systems have no moving parts, and as such have very long life spans. The inverter should last for over 10 years and may cost up to £1,000 to replace, however you can buy an extended 20 year warranty for as little as £300. You should expect the panels to last for at least 25 years.

How long does it take to install solar panels?

Most domestic solar panel installations take no more than one day with minimum disruption. Typically, the scaffolding will be erected a couple of days before our solar PV installation team arrive to mount the panels on the roof, install the inverter, and carry out the internal wiring.

Do solar panels need cleaning?

Solar panels are generally self-cleaning, if positioned at an angle of 15° or over. It  is advised however, to visually inspect your panels annually and rinse if necessary. Most window-cleaning companies have a reach-and-wash system and should be able to clean your panels.

What ongoing service and maintenance do solar panels require?

It is recommended that your solar panels are checked and serviced every 2 years. We offer a standard service and maintenance package, which your local office can advise you on.

Is there a danger my solar panels will blow off the roof during a storm?

As all the solar panels we install are securely attached to the fabric of the building using a roof hook and rail system and mounted at least 30cm in from the edge of the roof to prevent excessive wind loading, it is highly unlikely you would ever experience panels coming off your roof. Even in the hurricane force winds of February 2014, none of our customers had an issue with their panels coming off their roofs.

How do solar panels connect to the electrical supply in my home?

The electricity produced by solar panels is converted from DC (direct current) by the inverter to AC (alternating current), which your home is run on. The electricity is then taken from the inverter via an AC cable to your distribution board, where it is used to power the circuits in your home.

If I have solar panels can I come off grid?

As solar panels only produce electricity in daylight hours you would need an alternative energy source or a battery storage system in order to come off-grid.

Will my solar panels work when there is a power cut?

If there is a power cut your inverter will switch off, stopping any generation from your solar panels entering your property.

This is a safety feature to protect workers who may be repairing the grid but we can install a back-up system that will enable you to use your solar energy in the event of a power cut.

Do I need to change my electricity meter to an export meter if I have solar panels?

Most electricity suppliers are not installing export meters in domestic properties. They assume that you will export 50% of the electricity produced and pay you for this however much you export to the grid.
