People and businesses in Leicester looking for ways to deal with climate change can benefit from putting up solar panels. These panels are great because they work well, are reliable, and can make green energy without costing too much. This is especially true if you also use batteries to store the energy right where you use it.

Our solar panels are good for all kinds of places – houses, offices, factories, or farms in Leicester. We have put in over 2000 systems in the East Midlands and we use real data to show they work well.

We help you pick the best equipment that can last up to 40 years. Our products stand out worldwide and come with a 25 to 30-year guarantee. They’re tested to work in extreme conditions, from space to hot deserts and cold Arctic areas.

What are in-roof panels

For homeowners who care about looks and practicality, our in-roof solar panels are perfect. They fit right into your roof, looking sleek and blending with your existing roof materials. This way, you get green energy while keeping your house looking good. These panels are great for new builds or if you’re thinking about updating your roof. They combine the benefits of renewable energy with stylish design.

What are on-roof panels

For homeowners who need a versatile solar option, our on-roof solar panels are ideal. They’re attached to your existing roof using a sturdy frame, which lifts them a bit above the roof. This method is easy, cost-effective, and works on almost any roof. While on-roof panels are more visible than in-roof ones, the gap underneath helps cool them down, boosting their efficiency.

Choosing on-roof solar panels is a smart move for a practical, high-performing energy solution that maximizes your home’s energy output.

What are wall mounted systems

Our wall-mounted solar panels are a game-changer. We use top-notch solar panels from Q-cells, known for their efficiency, and mount them vertically on walls. This is especially good for buildings in Leicester with south-facing walls that get a lot of sun, giving you another way to get solar power when there’s not much room or the right setup on your roof.

We install these panels with a special mounting system designed to get the most sunlight by facing them vertically. This approach opens up new possibilities for using solar energy in crowded areas of Leicester or in buildings where putting panels on the roof isn’t an option, making sure more people and businesses can use clean, sustainable energy.

What are ground mounted systems

Ground-mounted solar panels are a great option for residents with enough outdoor space. These systems, set up directly on the ground, come with several key advantages over roof-mounted versions:

  • Placement Freedom: You can place them anywhere on your property that gets good sunlight, without worrying about the size or direction of your roof.
  • Easy to Look After: Since they’re on the ground, it’s easy to reach them for cleaning or repairs, making maintenance a breeze.
  • Optimal Sun Exposure: You can angle them just right to catch the most sun, something that’s not always possible with roof-mounted panels.

In short, if you’ve got the space, ground-mounted solar panels are a top choice for tapping into solar energy efficiently. They’re convenient to maintain and can be positioned for the best sun exposure, making them a smart choice for effective, eco-friendly energy.

Our approach

When choosing solar panels and inverters, we focus on quality and innovation. The solar panel industry is mainly based in Asia, particularly China, which has led to a decline in some European brands, like Germany’s Solar World. To adapt, we partnered with Qcells, which started in Germany but was bought by South Korea’s Hanwha. This move boosted Qcells‘ investment in high-end manufacturing and research in Germany, making their solar modules some of the most advanced and affordable on the market.

We also offer products from REC and Sunpower for their special sizes and mounting options, meeting the unique needs of our customers. This selection ensures we provide the best solar technology available, combining performance, cost, and sustainability, no matter your specific needs.

Benefits of Solar

Solar panels offer lots of benefits, not just for the environment but for your wallet and home too. First off, they can cut down your electricity bills a lot. Using the sun’s energy means you rely less on the electricity grid, saving money in the long run.

Also, having solar panels can boost your home’s value. It makes your place more attractive to buyers, turning solar panels into a smart money move as well as an eco-friendly one.

Solar panels also give you a bit of energy independence. They’re a reliable energy source, protecting you from changing energy prices and possible outages. And if you’re aiming to reduce your environmental footprint, solar panels are a great choice, offering a clean, green energy option.

Solar panels are a smart and cost-effective solution for today’s energy challenges, offering homeowners big savings, better environmental health, and freedom from relying on the grid.

When businesses get on board with solar PV systems, the benefits get even bigger. For them, it’s not just about cutting down on energy bills; it’s about contributing to social and environmental goals and running more efficiently.

Both homes and businesses switching to solar PV is a big step toward renewable energy. This shift doesn’t just make for a cleaner, sustainable future but also builds up our defense against energy uncertainties. It highlights how crucial solar energy is in creating a world that’s both eco-friendly and energy-secure.

All roof types as well as ground and wall mounted frames

We’re ready to fit solar panels on any roof type, be it pitched or flat, always keeping your roof’s condition in mind. We use top-notch German mounting systems from well-known brands like K2, Schletter, Wagner, and Van der Valk to promise both quality and durability. For roofs with designs that might make installation tricky, or where shadows could lower efficiency, we use Solar Edge and Tigo optimisers to boost performance of each panel.

For flat roofs, we set up panels on frames angled just right towards the sun, and secure them well to avoid any worry about roof damage.

When it comes to new buildings, many clients go for the smooth, built-in appearance of in-roof systems from GSE, cutting down on the need for traditional roofing materials.

If roof space is limited, we can set up wall-mounted or ground-mounted systems, adjusting to the needs of your location and making sure we follow all planning rules. With these flexible options, we can customize a solar panel system to fit your energy needs and how you want it to look, no matter the space or design challenges.

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%.
