Installing In Roof Solar Panels
In roof solar panels are very similar to conventional solar panels. The main difference being in roof panels act as both solar panels and the actual roof tiles. With a solar panel mounting tray system you have a choice of any conventional roof panel. We recommend GSE roof mounting system.
GSE Integration is a French establishment that manufactures Photovoltaic solar panels. Their integrated kits are designed to be lightweight, low cost but cost-efficient products that bring a more aesthetically pleasing aspect to solar panels. GSE are controlling the majority of companies on the market because of the cost-effective reputation their mounting systems have.
GSE Integration kits can be used on over 90% of photovoltaic panels that are on the market and they are also one of the cheapest to use as well so they’re beneficial for everyone involved.
Things to Consider
When your considering a solar panel installation there are a few things to consider such as whether a solar system that covers your entire roof space is what you’re interested in having or whether it’s just a section of the roof you want integrated with roof panels.
Cost Of Integrated Solar Panels In The UK
The cost of in-roof solar panels in the UK can vary for each installation. The price of your project is dependant on several different factors including the type of inverter manufacturer you plan on choosing .
Another factor that determines the cost of your system is whether your property is a new build or a retrofit. This can have an impact on the cost of your solar installation because the solar panels are integrated into the actual roof so the age of the build could potentially make your installation cost increase. additional contributing factors to the cost of your system are the size and type of system you choose.

How Integrated Solar Panels Work
Solar panels work by converting sunlight into usable, green electricity through photovoltaic cells. The electricity solar generates is natural and renewable whilst still having the same effect as any other electricity would just with added financial and environmental benefits.
What Is The Difference With In-roof Solar Panels?
In roof solar systems and on roof solar panel systems function in a similar sort of way just with slight differences. In roof systems just like on roof operate by turning natural energy into electricity you can then use on a day to day basis. The difference is in roof systems have no roof tiles underneath them and instead the solar panels act as a substitute roof for the house just with solar integrated in the roof instead of normal tiles.
In terms of the visual aspect, in-roof systems generally look a lot more appealing and fit in better with the house. However, in-roof systems can be up to 10% less efficient than conventional solar panels as the panels operate at a slightly higher temperature.
Benefits Of In-roof Solar Panel Systems
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Reduce Carbon Footprint
- 2 for the price of 1 (roof and electricity)
- Reduces electricity bills
