Different types of solar panels.

Installation basics

Do I need planning permission?

No. From the 6th of April 2008, planning permission will not be required for most solar panel installations, unless you live in a listed building. Even then, most councils will allow solar panels in most cases.


Is my roof compatible?

Most homes in the UK are suitable for solar panels.

If you have a South, South East, Southwest or East and West facing roof space un-obscured by shading, then yes. Your internal plumbing/electrics may need to be checked before the installation process begins.


Do these work in northern climates?

Even the UK receives 60% of the sun's radiation compared to the equatorial regions.

Each square metre of the UK gets between 900 to 1,400 kWh of energy annually, so this technology does work in the UK's climate.


Can I install myself?

If you have Part P electrical and plumbing qualifiation, then it may be possible.

However, export tariff eligible installations must be carried out and certified, by an accredited MCS solar panel installer to qualify.


Are solar panels suitable for my property?

Additionally, PV systems vary in size, so our installers will ask a few questions about your property to establish your options and costs.




"My wife and I would like to express our satisfaction with our solar panels and to say how delighted we are.

"At every stage of the process, your staff and reps have been professional, knowledgeable, proactive, and helpful. At no point in the process did we feel pressure to buy."
