What are in-roof panels

For those seeking a seamless integration with their home’s aesthetics, our in-roof solar panels offer the perfect solution. These panels are designed to fit flush with your roofing material, providing a sleek and sophisticated look. By replacing a portion of your roof with solar panels, not only do you generate clean energy, but you also maintain the natural lines and beauty of your home. Ideal for new builds or those considering roof renovations, in-roof solar panels blend functionality with design elegance.

What are on-roof panels

Our on-roof solar panels are a popular and versatile choice, suitable for a wide range of homes. Mounted on top of your existing roof, these panels are supported by a robust framing system that elevates them above the roofing surface. This installation method is straightforward, cost-effective, and compatible with almost any roof type. While they are more visible than in-roof panels, the gap beneath them helps keep the panels cooler, potentially enhancing efficiency. Choose on-roof solar panels for a practical, efficient solar solution that maximizes your investment.

What are wall mounted systems

We offer a flexible approach to solar energy with our wall-mounted solar panels. These are the very same high-quality solar panels we supply from Q-cells for traditional installations, adapted to be mounted vertically on walls. This approach is perfect for properties with south-facing walls that are fully exposed to sunlight, allowing you to harness solar power even when roof space is limited or unsuitable.

Our wall-mounted panels are installed using a specialized mounting system, designed to secure the panels vertically while ensuring they capture as much sunlight as possible. This method opens up new possibilities for solar installation, especially in urban environments or for buildings where roof mounting is not an option.

What are ground mounted systems

Ground mount solar panel systems are pretty straightforward. They’re solar panels installed on the ground rather than on a roof. Here’s why they might be a good pick:

  1. Flexibility in Placement: You can put them anywhere on your property that gets good sunlight, which means you’re not limited by roof space or orientation.
  2. Easy to Clean and Maintain: Since they’re on the ground, they’re easier to access for cleaning and any repairs.
  3. Optimal Orientation: You can angle them perfectly towards the sun to maximize energy production, which isn’t always possible with roof-mounted systems.

Main point? They’re a solid choice if you’ve got the space and want to maximize your solar energy harvest. Plus, easier maintenance is always a bonus.

Our approach

We are frequently approached with inquiries regarding our preference for certain solar panels and inverters, as well as the rationale behind these choices. The solar panel manufacturing industry is vast, encompassing hundreds of companies, predominantly situated in Asia, particularly in China.

This market dominance led to the phasing out of major European brands, including Germany’s Solar World. Following Solar World’s decline, we transitioned to Qcells, originally a German company, later acquired by Hanwha of South Korea. Qcells has made significant investments in cutting-edge factories and research and development facilities in Germany, consistently delivering some of the most advanced and cost-effective modules available.

Also, we occasionally utilize REC and Sunpower, particularly when specific dimensions and mounting systems are required.

Benefits of Solar

Solar panels offer a wealth of benefits that extend far beyond their environmental impact. Firstly, they significantly reduce electricity bills, as harnessing the power of the sun to generate energy for your home means less reliance on the grid. This can lead to substantial savings, especially over the long term.

Additionally, solar panels can increase the value of your property, making it an attractive investment for homeowners.

They also offer a degree of energy independence, providing a reliable power source that can protect against fluctuating energy prices and supply interruptions. Moreover, for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint, solar panels are an excellent choice.

In essence, domestic solar panels offer homeowners a smart, cost-effective solution to today’s energy challenges, providing substantial financial savings, enhancing environmental sustainability, and ensuring energy security.

Expanding this to the commercial sector, solar PV systems not only mirror these benefits on a larger scale but also contribute significantly to corporate social responsibility goals and operational efficiency.

Together, domestic and commercial solar PV installations signify a pivotal shift towards renewable energy sources, driving forward a greener, more resilient future for all.

All roof types as well as ground and wall mounted frames

We can fit panels on most types of pitched or flat roofs as long as they are in sound condition. We only use German mounting systems from K2, Schletter, Wagner and Van der Valk. On-roof options will usually cater for most roof shapes and where obstructions are a issue then we use Solar Edge and Tigo individual panel Optimisers to minimise shadow losses.

Flat roof systems use frames to angle the panels up to collect more sunlight and ballast to keep them in place so there are no worries abought future roof leaks.

On new-builds many customers opt for in-roof systems from GSE to get the smart inset look and importantly save on the number of roof tiles needed.

Where roof space is limited then customers opt for wall and often ground mounted frames that come in many shapes and sizes to suit your location and any Planning requirements.

What some of our clients say

Great advice, lovely people and now on my second system that is exceeding my expectations just like the first did. Worth every penny.

Pat PV and Powerwall customer in East Leake

We had thought about getting PV many times, but our roof needed recovering and had an unsuitable small south facing front roof. Carbon Legacy suggested removing the roof obstruction and having a new in-roof PV system front and back. This give us a cheaper re-roof, bigger more useful PV and Tesla Powerwall system that promises to reduce our electricity bill by 70%.
