Solar PV Systems use sunlight (direct and diffused) to generate electricity from Silicone, a semi-conductor. Sunlight of a specific frequency liberates electrons that flow as electrical ‘direct’ current [DC] and then exported for conversion to alternating current [AC].

Solar PV Systems locations include:

  • Flat & Pitched Roofs
  • Land (e.g. paddock, sloping bank, unused garden area)
  • On the sides of buildings (façade mounted)

Ideal Requirements:

  • Roof – is strong enough to support the weight of the system meeting Building Regulations
  • System Modules (panels) need to face in a southerly direction ranging from east through south to west. True South is the ideal.
  • Modules are pitched between 20º to 50º. 30º is considered the ideal.
  • Installation site is not affected by shade, especially between the hours of 9.00am to 3.00pm.

Mounting Systems include

  • In Roof (replaces some of the existing tiles)
  • On Roof using a rail system
  • Solar Tiles e.g. Marley (replaces some of the existing roof tiles)
  • Frame Mounting – for ground and flat roofs – replicating the ideal pitch

Installing a solar PV system onto a roof adds about 20Kg per M² to the roof load. It’s imperative that we scientifically assess your roof’s additional load capacity so Building Regulations compliance can be checked and certified by a Chartered Structural Engineer. Overloading a roof can result in serious structural damage which is why we go the extra roof survey mile.
