Is my property suitable for a solar panel installation?

Solar panel installation is most effective when implemented on a south-facing roof with minimal shade. It is possible to install on different-facing roofs, however, you might not achieve the maximum potential power generation.

How long does solar panel installation take?

Once scaffolding has been placed, it will typically take 1 to 2 days to install a solar energy system in the Swindon area. We will discuss the exact timings with customers before installation – multiple factors will affect the timescale, including the size of the installation, the number of roof elevations and the type of solar kit being installed.

Will I still have access to electricity in power cut?

This is entirely dependent on what solar energy storage system you have installed. Your solar panels will stop generating electricity in a power cut as the inverter will switch off. However, if you have battery storage, you will be able to switch this on until the grid is back up and running.

Do solar panels need maintenance?

No, solar panel kits do not require a lot of maintenance. However, it is suggested that cleaning them a couple of times per year can increase the amount of energy produced and help lengthen the lifespan of the product.

How long do solar panel systems last for?
Will I need planning permission to have solar installed?
Where will the solar panel inverter be installed?

The inverter is needed to turn the energy generated from solar panels into useable AC power. These can be installed in loft spaces, utility rooms, garages, on an outside wall and in pretty much any location that is suitable and reasonably well ventilated.
