In the first instance one of our surveyors will come and carry out a free survey at your property. They will measure your roof space and provide you with details of the system sizes we could install and the estimated output together with the financial benefits you will receive.
You will only require planning permission if your property is a listed building or situated in a conservation area. If planning is required our administration team will contact your local council and submit the application for you.
Should you wish to go ahead with an installation, you will be required to sign a contract which clearly sets out system design, output and a full detailed proposal. You will not be required to pay anything until the whole job is complete.
We make the whole process effortless and help you through every step of the planning stage.
Our highly skilled installation teams will then come and install your Solar PV system.
The mounting system we use consists of roof hooks that are fixed to the rafters with proprietary Solar PV aluminium mounting rails subsequently attached to these. Waterproof flashing is secured over the roof hooks, where required, as an additional security measure to ensure that no leakages will occur. The PV modules are then attached to the mounting rails and are secured in place.
The Solar PV modules are connected by DC cable in series to form ‘strings’ in a combination which is compatible with the chosen inverter.
All of our domestic inverters are certified under G83/2. Inverters convert the DC power derived from the solar array into AC power suitable for UK homes.
Inverters are usually installed alongside the DC and AC isolators in a suitable location (e.g. loft space, garage or meter cupboard). Access to the equipment is important for commissioning the system.
As part of your installation we will include an OFGEM approved Generation Meter. This meter is used to display the amount of kilowatt hours your Solar PV system has generated from the date of commissioning. You will be required to provide your electricity supplier with a quarterly reading from this meter in order to claim your Feed In Tariff payments.
Every roof has unique aspects from roof type, structure and the finished tile/slate type.
We take great pride in ascertaining the individual circumstances. Every job has full modelling, wind and snow load calculations above industry recommendations to ensure your property is kept safe and the installation is installed to the highest standard.
