While many electricians are capable of installing solar panels, it’s best to use an MCS-certified installer. This ensures that they have specific training and qualifications in solar energy systems, which is also a requirement to qualify for certain government incentives and feed-in tariffs.

/ /

Using an MCS-certified installer ensures that your solar panel system meets high standards of quality and compliance. It also qualifies you for various government grants and incentives, including the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) that offers payments for surplus energy exported back to the grid.

/ /

Start by searching the MCS or RECC databases for certified installers in your area. Additionally, reading customer reviews and asking for recommendations from friends or family who have had solar panels installed can also help ensure you choose a reliable installer.

/ /

A comprehensive quote should include the cost of the panels, installation charges, any scaffolding that might be needed, a timeline for completion, warranty periods, and details of any after-sales service. It’s wise to get multiple quotes to compare prices and services.

/ /

The installation time can vary depending on the size and complexity of the system, but typically, solar panels can be installed on a residential home within 1 to 3 days once all the preparatory work has been completed.

/ /

Yes, installing solar panels in the UK is subject to building regulations, primarily concerning structural integrity and electrical safety. Your installer should handle all necessary permissions and ensure the installation complies with local building codes.

/ /

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.

/ /

The amount of roof space required depends on the size of the system you wish to install. Typically, a standard residential solar panel system needs about 15-20 square metres of roof space.

/ /

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.

/ /

Solar panels require minimal maintenance, usually involving periodic cleaning and an annual check to ensure everything is functioning correctly. Most systems are designed to be relatively maintenance-free.

/ /

Reputable installers will have insurance to cover any damages that occur during installation. Always confirm this before work begins, and check the warranty and insurance details included in your installation contract.

/ /

Always use a qualified, MCS-certified installer and check their references and past work. Post-installation, the installer should provide you with a performance estimate and a thorough inspection to ensure everything is set up correctly.

/ /

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.

/ /

Yes, potentially installing solar panels can increase your property’s value by improving its energy efficiency rating and reducing future utility bills, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
