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

FAQs

You must have a few questions. Here’s the answer to a couple of the most frequently asked ones relating to solar panels and solar panel grants, but if you have any more, we’d be happy to help.

How are solar panels installed?

Solar panels are commonly placed on roofs, but can also be installed on carports or ground mounts. Here’s the process:

  • Property Assessment: We evaluate your property’s suitability for solar panels, looking at roof size, orientation, type, and potential shading from trees.
  • Mounting the System: A robust mounting system is attached to your roof to securely hold the solar panels.
  • Panel Installation: The solar panels are then positioned and fastened onto the mounting system.
  • Electrical Connection: We link the solar panels to an inverter, converting the generated electricity into a usable form for your home.
  • Final Checks: A comprehensive inspection is conducted to ensure correct installation and functioning of the system.

How long does a solar PV installation take?

Most solar panel installations are done within a day or two. The duration can vary based on the system’s size and complexity.

Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

Consider these factors to figure out if your roof is suitable for solar panels:

  • Roof Size: This affects how many panels can be installed.
  • Roof Orientation: South-facing roofs are best for maximum sunlight.
  • Roof Material: Some materials are better suited for solar panels.
  • Roof Condition: Your roof should be strong enough to hold the panels.

Need help? Call our team and we’ll help you figure it out.

Do I need planning permission for solar panels?

Generally, you don’t need planning permission for solar panels, except in certain situations like listed buildings, conservation areas, or if the installation is notably tall and 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.
