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 typically installed on your property’s roof, but they can also go on other surfaces like carports or ground mounts. Here’s how it usually works:

  • Site assessment: We check your property to make sure it’s a good fit for solar panels. We look at things like your roof size, orientation, type, and any obstructions like trees.
  • Scaffolding and roof prep: Safety first! We set up scaffolding around your roof to ensure safe access.
  • Mounting system: We attach a sturdy mounting system to your roof. This supports the solar panels and keeps them secure.
  • Solar panel installation: We carefully place the solar panels on your roof and attach them to the mounting system.
  • Electrical wiring: We connect the solar panels to an inverter, which converts their electricity into a usable form for your home.
  • Final checks: We do a thorough inspection to ensure everything is installed correctly and working well. We also test the system to confirm it’s generating electricity.

How long does a solar PV installation take?

The time it takes to complete a solar PV installation varies based on your system’s size and complexity, but most installations are done in just one or two days.

Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

To find out if your roof is suitable for solar panels, there are a few things to consider:

  • Roof size: It determines how many panels you can install.
  • Roof orientation: Panels should ideally face south for maximum sunlight.
  • Roof type: Some materials work better for solar panels.
  • Roof condition: It needs to be in good shape to support the panels.

Not sure if your roof is a fit? Call our team and we’ll help you figure it out.

Do I need planning permission for solar panels?

In most cases, you don’t need planning permission for solar panels. There are a couple of main exceptions, however:

  • Listed building or conservation areas
  • Systems that are above a certain height and will be highly 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.
