Frequently Asked Questions


It is always advantageous to have a south facing roof however it is not out of the question and we can do a desktop analysis to see how viable this would be for your space.

Even a roof that doesn't fit the ideal requirements can still be suitable for solar panels. We will provide advise about the most suitable way to maximise energy generation. However don’t forget you can also install ground mounted solar to make the most of your land space. (restrictions may apply)

Solar panels work through all four seasons of the year, come rain or shine, or even hail or in light snow. But solar panels do generally produce less energy in winter. That's because the days are shorter, so there are fewer hours of daylight and the sun is lower in the sky, on average. However with our technology we can show you on your online portal the performance of each panel live.

If asbestos is identified this will require over cladding or removal. Over cladding is a very safe and more cost-effective remediation for Asbestos roofs and will enable modification (positioning of a solar array) without harm. We do work with roofing partners that can support with these proposals.

This is dependent on the manufacturer and system installed as everyone is different however usually solar panels typically last between 25-30 years, at which manufacturers would call the optimal rate.

As solar panels have no moving parts, very little service and maintenance is required. To keep your solar panels generating efficiently we recommend an annual service to ensure your system is kept in full working order and any fault or drop in generation is flagged immediately and resolved. With average rain fall most panels are self-cleaning, but depending on local weather conditions, bird activity and overhanging trees your panels may also require an occasional clean. It’s unlikely that this will be an annual requirement, but an annual check will ensure that you do not lose generation due to dirty panels.

We will be able to identify this during our desktop analysis and will show you the system production vs your consumption 

You can earn income for every unit you export to the grid (dependent on the rate the government sets) If you have the space to be able to “over generate” we can look at installing a system to allow you to do this.

With the various solar batteries available in the market. You can get solar batteries of different size. The solar batteries varies from small, medium and large. The size of the batteries determine the capacity, and the voltage.
