Solar Panel FAQ

What warranties come with solar panel installations?

Warranties for solar panels and their components can vary; panels usually come with a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects and performance guarantees, while inverters typically have a 5-10 year warranty. Labour might be covered for shorter periods, so check with your installer.

Can solar panels be installed on any type of roof?

Solar panels can be installed on most types of roofs, including flat and pitched roofs. However, the materials of the roof, such as tiles, slate, or metal, can affect the installation process. An experienced installer can provide advice based on your specific roof type.

Do solar panels require planning permission?

In many cases, solar panel installations fall under “permitted development” and do not require planning permission, but this can vary, especially in conservation areas or on listed buildings. Always check with your local planning authority.
