Solar Panel Installers Near Me

Are you looking to improve the energy efficiency of your home? Producing your own electricity through solar panels is great for the environment. It can also save you money in the long term too, as you’ll require far less electricity from the national grid.

While most energy-saving steps occur on the inside of your home, solar panels are placed externally on your roof. They are suitable for most roof types and will generate energy whenever it is light outside. If you are interested in solar panels, we’ll connect you with the best solar panel installation experts.

Choosing the right installer for you

How do Solar Panels work?

Every hour the sun provides more energy to the earth than the entire world consumes in a year. Solar panels allow homeowners to harness this energy, reducing the need for fossil fuel consumption to power your electricity.

Solar panels are placed onto the roof of your home and will generate electricity whenever it’s light outside. Conducting wires carry the electricity from the solar panels to an inverter inside your home.

When it’s light and your electrical appliances are turned on, they will be powered by your solar panels. If you use your electrical appliances when it’s dark outside, then your energy will come from the national grid.

Any excess energy your solar panels produce will be exported to the national grid. There are various schemes in place such as the feed-in-tariff (FIT), that allow homeowners to financially benefit from this process.

What to look for in a Solar Panel Installer

The expert you choose should be a solar panel installation specialist. Not only should they be fully knowledgeable and experienced, but be qualified and insured to undertake the work.

Different types of Solar Energy

Solar energy is one of the cleanest forms of energy you can generate as it comes straight from the sun. There are various ways you can harness solar energy and here is just a snapshot.

  • General Solar Energy - Many devices and appliances can be powered through the use of solar energy. For example, lighting which otherwise would need batteries or a mains connection. The more solar energy you can use around your home and garden, the less your energy bills will be.
  • Passive Solar Energy - Passive solar energy looks at how the sun hits your home at different times of the year so that you can maximise the natural heat being generated. For example, installing larger windows or adapting your living spaces to the warmer areas.
  • Photovoltaic - This is a method of absorbing sunlight to produce electricity. Solar panels are powered by photovoltaic energy, as are calculators and clocks. It is one of the most popular forms of solar energy and can easily be installed and connected to your mains supply.
  • Solar Water Heating Systems - Solar water heating systems also sit on the roof space in the form of a panel but work slightly differently, in that they provide hot water to your home rather than electricity. They can be used exclusively in a warm climate or in combination with your boiler.

How to check your Solar Panel Installer’s credentials

Reputable solar panel installers will be registered with a relevant trade body such as the Solar Trade Association (SAT). It’s always a good idea to undertake plenty of research before agreeing to any work on your home. Check their online reviews and if they have any trusted trader accreditations.

Can I get Solar Panels online?

It’s possible to order solar panels online. However, given they require expert installation that involves working at height and with electrical systems, it’s always best to entrust a qualified installer.

How many Solar Panels do I need?

The number of solar panels you need depends on the size of your roof and how much electricity you wish to generate. Your budget plays a part too, as the more panels you have put on the more expensive it will be initially. However, over time the idea is that solar panels pay for themselves in the reduction of energy bills you will receive. If your aim is to be greener, the more panels the better.

What is involved in a Solar Panel Installation?

The process of installing solar panels is quite straightforward, and the installation itself can take as little as one day to complete.

Before your installation, the solar panel company you choose will arrange for a survey to take place. They will be assessing the size and direction of your roof, and from there will create a detailed plan of action. It’s good to note that south-facing roofs are preferred due to the light needed to generate electricity.

On the day of the installation, your solar panel provider will create scaffolding around your home so that they can reach your roof space. From there, roof hooks will be installed underneath selected roof tiles, which will keep the rails that hold up the panels in place. Your solar panels are then connected to these rails and will begin to generate electricity immediately once installed.

The solar panels will be internally connected to your electricity supply in your home. You’ll be given a generation meter which indicates how much power your solar panels have produced.

How much do Solar Panels cost?

The cost of solar panels depends on the solar system size (running on a scale of 1kW-4kW) and how many individual panels you wish to install.

What do you love most about your job?

Helping people understand new technologies and how they can benefit from switching to pv solar. Dispelling the myth that renewable solutions are expensive and unavailable to everyone in some way, shape or form. I also love identifying and researching new products that can help reduce people's energy costs, energy usage and carbon footprint

What inspired you to start your own business?

I originally qualified as a plumbing and heating engineer in the late 1970s and gradually moved into management. I found my niche was in recruitment, training and compliance. I then moved into management consulting and worked for some of the largest organisations in the UK, Europe and globally. In 2018 my last consultancy came to an end and I decided the time was right to begin offering my vast skillset directly to the end customer. Vision2030 was born.
