How PV solar panels work
  • Sunlight hits the solar cells in the panel
  • The sunlight knocks electrons loose from the atoms of the semiconductor material
  • These electrons flow through the cell, creating an electric current
  • The electric current passes through an inverter, which converts it into AC electricity
  • The AC electricity can then be used to power your home or business

How are solar panels installed? - Cambridge

Solar panels in Cambridge are typically installed on roofs, though carports and ground mounts are also options. The process usually involves these key steps:

  • Site Evaluation: Our professionals carefully assess your property to ensure it’s suitable for solar power, considering factors like sunlight exposure, roof condition, and potential shading.
  • Scaffolding and Roof Preparation: We ensure safe access to your roof by setting up scaffolding and preparing the surface for proper panel installation.
  • Mounting System Installation: A secure mounting system is installed based on your specific roof structure and chosen panels, guaranteeing stability and weather resistance.
  • Solar Panel Setup: Trained technicians carefully attach the panels to the mounting system, ensuring optimal alignment for maximum sun energy capture.
  • Electrical Connection: The panels are connected to an inverter, which converts the captured solar energy into electricity usable by your home.
  • Final Inspection and Testing: We perform a thorough inspection and testing to ensure the system is functioning safely and efficiently, guaranteeing optimal performance.

How long does a solar PV installation take?

Most solar PV installations in Cambridge are completed within one to two days, depending on the size and complexity of the system. Our team works efficiently to minimise disruption and ensure a smooth installation process.

Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

To determine if your Cambridge roof is suitable for solar panels, consider the following:

  • Roof Size – Determines panel quantity.
  • Roof Orientation – South-facing is ideal.
  • Roof Type – Compatibility with solar panels.
  • Roof Condition – Must be robust to support panels.

Unsure about your roof’s suitability? Our team is here to help.

Do I need planning permission for solar panels?

Generally, in Cambridge, solar panels do not require planning permission, unless your property falls under listed buildings, conservation areas, or if the system is particularly tall or visible.

Is it worth buying solar panels in the UK?

Solar panel technology has advanced to the point where it can even be effective in rainy England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Solar panel costs have also dropped dramatically – almost 80% over the last decade – so there’s never been a better time to invest in solar technology than now. If you have any questions about potential solar panel efficiencies for your building, then speak to our team, who’ll be glad to help.

How many solar panels do you need to run a normal house?

According to studies performed by Ofgem and OVO Energy, the average UK household uses between 56 and 72 kWh of electricity each week. To put that into some kind of context, a one-bed flat would need approximately 6 solar panels, while an average 3-bed home would need 10 panels.

Are solar panels enough to power a house?

Definitely! However, the number of solar panels you’ll need will depend on the size of your home, the type of roof you have, the direction your home faces, and your energy usage. For example, if you have a small home and don’t use a lot of electricity, you may be able to power your entire home with solar panels, but if you have a large home or use a lot of electricity, you may need to supplement your solar panels with energy from the national grid.

How much do I get for selling electricity back to the grid in the UK?

This depends on the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) tariff that you’re on. The SEG tariff is set by your energy supplier, and the rates can vary. However, the average SEG tariff in the UK is around 4.5p per kWh, meaning that for every kWh of electricity that you export to the grid, you’ll be paid 4.5p. If you’re considering installing a solar energy system with a view to selling energy back to the National Grid, speak to one of our expert advisors, who can give you a better idea of the sort of setup that you’ll need.
