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

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 typically installed on roofs, although they can also be set up on carports or ground mounts. Here’s a quick overview of the process:

  • Property Assessment – We evaluate the suitability of your roof.
  • Safety Preparations – Scaffolding is used to ensure a safe installation.
  • Mounting – We secure a robust system for the panels.
  • Panel Installation – Panels are carefully positioned and secured.
  • Wiring – We connect all components to an inverter.
  • Final Inspection – We ensure everything is functioning correctly.

How long does a solar PV installation take?

Solar PV installations generally take 1-2 days, depending on the system’s size and complexity.

Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

To find out if your roof is suitable for solar panels, think about the following:

  • Roof size – It impacts the number of panels that can be installed.
  • Roof orientation – Ideally, panels should face south for maximum sunlight exposure.
  • Roof material – Some materials are more compatible with solar panels.
  • Roof condition – It should be sturdy enough to support the panels.

Still feeling a bit uncertain? Don’t worry – our team is on hand to help. Just give us a call.

Do I need planning permission for solar panels?

In most cases, planning permission is not required for solar panels. The primary exceptions are if you’re located in a listed building or conservation area, or if the system is particularly 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.
