Solar Photovoltaic (PV)

Solar %20photovoltaic

Photovoltaic systems use the sun's energy to create electricity, and only require daylight, not direct sunlight, to operate. PV systems convert solar radiation into electricity. The simplest systems provide electricity to a building directly.

PV panels can be used with a battery store or connected to the main grid to sell back. They can be installed on or within the roof tiles, or even on the ground. Check with the planners and consider safety.

Design and location considerations...

You can fit PV systems to most buildings. They need a suitable south facing area to fit the panels onto. A worthwhile investment will require over 10m2 of roof space. Over-shading at any point in the year on any of the panels will affect the efficiency of the whole system.

You may need planning permission. Please check with the local authority.

You will need to check that the roof is strong enough to take the weight of the system and that there is loft access.
