Solar PV for homes & workplace

More and more homeowners are discovering the many benefits of solar PV. With solar PV on your roof, creating your own free clean electricity, you can earn an income from the feed-in-tariff, which is tax free, index linked to the rate of inflation and guaranteed for 20 years!, save on fuel bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Is my roof suitable?

we can come and look and give you our expert opinion. The great thing about solar PV systems is that they can be installed almost anywhere, as long as the location meets the following basic conditions and the roof is structurally sound.

Orientation of roof

An ideal roof has a southerly aspect, although it can still be very worthwhile installing solar PV on south east, south west, east or west facing roofs.

pitch of roof

The best pitch is between 30 and 40 degrees, although we can still install solar PV panels on other pitches, including flat roofs, with little drop in performance levels.

condition of roof

The roof is structurally sound. Individual solar PV panels are not particularly heavy,but a typical (4kWp) solar array, complete with mounting rails can weigh around 250kg. We check this for you as part of our comprehensive survey.
