Discreet Solar Panels
Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are more commonly referred to as solar panels.
Solar panels use the suns energy to create electricity and only require daylight rather than direct sunlight.
Installing Solar Panels
Solar panels can be installed on roofs facing within 90 degrees south, preferably not overshadowed as this can result in less electicity being produced.
Due to the weight of solar panels the roof must be stong enough to take the increased weight in to consideration especially when solar panels are fitted above existing roof tiles or slates.
Discreet solar panels come in a variety of shapes and colours so as to blend in to their surroundings and look aesthetically pleasing.
How Much do Solar Panels Cost
Prices vary considerably for solar panels with an average house costing approximately £13,000.00 to buy and install.
The Benefits of Solar Panels
As well as the environmental advantages of installing solar panels they can also save you money. Most domestic solar panel systems are between 1.5 and 3 kilowats and can produce up to 50% of the electicity used by the household.
Larger solar panel systems that produce more electricity than the property consumes can sell any excess to the energy companies by using Feed in Tariffs.
