How are solar panels installed to homes?
There are several methods for installing solar panels to homes. The most common method being the on-roof solution. This is where the panels are fixed to your roof and sit on top of the roof tiles or roof covering. Just like this photo of one of our installations (above).
There are other methods for installing solar panels to your home. Such as in-roof, ground-mounted, flat roof-mounted, solar tiles and even wall mounted.
It’s worth checking our dedicated page to solar panel fixing options.
Once the panels have been fitted, cables are installed to an inverter which converts the current from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current). AC is what is typically used in homes.
The inverter is then connected to your fuse box and during daylight hours when the solar is generating, starts providing your home with free electricity. The electricity that is generated is also metered before it is used. That way the electricity can be officially counted and the consumer can check what they have generated.
