Will highly recommend this company for any work you need doing from the office staff upto the inspector who calls invited within 24hours. Many thanks.
The two surveyor's who came out were very professional and personal, we had a laugh about one being a Wigan warriors fan and we're Rhinos fans lol. Then Rob who came out to fit the boiler again very professional and personal, very tidy workmanship. Can't thank your company enough, new boiler fitted in less than a week and easy to deal with.

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 largely installed on roofs, but they can also be set up on carports or ground mounts. Here’s a quick rundown of the process:
- Property Check – We assess your roof’s suitability.
- Safety Setup – We use scaffolding for safe installation.
- Mounting – We secure a strong system for the panels.
- Panel Installation – Panels are carefully placed and secured.
- Wiring – We connect everything to an inverter.
- Final Check – We ensure everything’s working right.
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 – This affects how many panels you can fit.
- Roof direction – Ideally, panels should face south to catch the most sun.
- Roof material – Some materials are more suited for solar panels.
- Roof condition – It should be strong enough to hold the panels.
Still unsure? Call our team and we’ll help you figure it out.
Do I need planning permission for solar panels?
Usually, you don’t need planning permission for solar panels. The main exceptions are if you’re 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.
