Solar Panel Installation

If your looking to reduce your electricity consumption or improve your green credentials installing solar panels on your roof or choosing to install panels on a ground mount system are both great ways to lower your electricity bill and generate your own electricity for free.

Types Of Solar Panels

There are many types of solar panels available for your installation and we can provide the best panels to suit the job.

Solar Panel Installation

Depending on the size of installation the majority of domestic installations are completed in 1 -2 working days.
Solar panels work best on a south-facing roof, however, a roof facing south-west or southeast direction work as well, we don’t advise them to be installed on a north-facing roof as the amount of production will be very low.

Popular Solar Panel Installation Locations

The most popular place for solar panels to be installed is on the roof. Most rooftop installations require scaffolding. If you have any spare land the other option is a ground-mount system. Both types of installation will require a survey to determine if any trees or buildings are partially covering the panels

Low Maintenance

Solar panels require very little maintenance, we recommend an annual electrical inspection and yearly clean.

How Much Do Solar Panels Cost?

Solar Panel Cost Saver

Over the past few years, the price of panels has significantly dropped and made the idea of installing solar panels more attractive. A typical 4kWp system costs around £5200 excluding scaffolding. On average a 4kWp system will save around £400 - £500 on electricity bills with a typical payback of four to seven years.

Depending on your roof size a typical three to four-bedroom house should accommodate a 4kW system or 16 standard panels. Systems greater than 4kW may require permission from the local distribution network operator which may also incur an additional cost. If your home has the roof space and the local grid operator can handle the additional capacity it is possible to install up to 10kWp.

Is My Home Right For A Solar System Installation?

We install solar to different size homes across the UK however, when installing solar you must bear in mind that solar is natural energy produced by the sun, therefore if your home is located in a particularly shady spot then your system is going to generate significantly less than a system located somewhere with better access to the sun.

Another thing to consider before starting your solar installation process is what type of facing roof you've got. South-facing roofs are ideal for solar because they tend to produce the most power, but solar can also work well with south-east and west facing roofs. This makes solar accessible to the majority of homes.

Solar Panel System Monitoring

Choosing to have solar panels installed on your home is a big decision to make so knowing you've got a monitoring system that constantly follows the progress of your solar systems panels as well as showing you a number of other useful things, such as how much energy your system is generating, when it's generating that energy and if there are any problems or faults with your system SolarEdge monitoring will put your mind at ease knowing your not in the dark.

What’s The Right Amount Of Solar Panels For My Home?

Each roof space is different so you really can’t compare what size you think you’ll need with anybody else’s size system because it can vary so much. There are factors that determine the number of panels you’ll need for your home include how much roof space your house has, the more accessible roof space you've got the more likely it is that you’ll need a bigger system, however, it also depends on the strength of your roof and the amount of electricity your household uses day to day. These are all factors that Empower will work out with you upon deciding to move forward with the process of your solar installation.

Solar Edge Inverters

An inverter is an important part of what makes up a solar system because it converts the DC electricity that solar panels generate into AC electricity with the purpose that the electricity generated can then be applied for everyday home uses such as watching TV, hoovering. A large number of people keep their inverters indoors so if this is a consideration for you, we advise keeping it in a cool, maintained area such as your garage where the temperature will accomadate the inverter perfectly allowing it to optimize power to the best of its ability.

How long does a typical solar installation take?

Most Domestic solar systems can be installed within 1-2 days, but a lot of our domestic installations don't take more than 1 day to complete.
