Domestic Solar Panels

We supply and install domestic solar panels throughout North Devon. Whether you are interested in reducing your energy costs or doing your bit for the environment, you can install solar panels on any roof type, no matter how old it is. If you are building a new property, solar panels help to achieve good SAP calculations too.

Our expert team can help you get the best PV system for your home. We will conduct a thorough survey of your property and advise you on which system would suit your roof space, property type, energy needs and budget. Domestic solar PV installations are also eligible for SEG tariffs (from Jan 2020) so the financial incentives are even greater. 

Only PV systems that have been installed under MCS and have DNO approval are eligible for SEGs and we provide both of those documents for all domestic projects.*

*To access a smart export tariff under the Smart Export Guarantee, there is a requirement to provide evidence your installation is MCS (or equivalent) certified. 

To benefit from the SEG, exporters must be able to demonstrate to suppliers that their generating equipment, and its installation, has been adequately certified. This in practice means providing evidence that they are certified to MCS or an equivalent standard.

Solar Panels for Homes

We offer a range of solar panels for homes across the South West. Our installations suit a range of properties and we offer the following styles:

Close up of solar panels

In-Roof

Integrated roof solar systems take the place of regular roof slates and tiles, which is a perfect option for a less obvious and intrusive appearance. We have in-roof systems from leading manufacturer GSE, so we can help you achieve the look you want. Our systems are finished with flashing that will ensure your roof is completely watertight and weatherproof. These are a great solution if you are re-roofing your home.

On-Roof

Our on-roof solar PV systems are mounted on the framework that is attached to the existing roof. Anchors sit beneath the slates or tiles and fix to the rafters. A gap is also created between the roof and the panels, as this allows air to pass underneath and cool the modules for optimum efficiency. We install a Schletter mounting kit which is high-quality, durable and has aesthetic appeal.

Free Standing

Where a pitched roof is not available, a free standing metal frame solar panel system can be installed at the bottom of the garden or spare ground on your premises. We will install these systems so they are at the optimum angle and orientation. The metal frames look smart and are attached to the ground using ground screws – a great solution for any sized system.

Ground-Mounted and Flat Roof Trays

If you are looking for the optimal solution for small, medium or large-scale solar PV systems on flat surfaces, this is the system for you.

The ConSole+ system by Renusol is the ideal solution for installing PV modules on flat roofs with a pitch of up to 5 degrees without roof anchoring, as this causes no roof damage.

The ground mount trays are suitable for many different installations – especially for landfills, rocky undergrounds and conversion sites.

DNO Approval - Export Limitation

All installations made by Solar PV Tech are either pre-approved with your DNO (under a G99 application for systems above 3.68kW) or post installation (with a G98 application for systems 3.68kW and below). 

This is managed in-house by our dedicated team and takes the stress away from complicated applications.
If you are looking to expand your existing system, this is now possible whilst still complying with requirements from your Distribution Networks Operator (DNO). 

Sometimes the DNO will approve a system based on Export Limitation and all the inverters we install are capable of this.

Power Hot Water Diverters

A great way of utilising any ‘spare’ energy from your PV panels is to divert it to your hot water cylinder to heat your water for free.
Instead of surplus power going back to the grid it gets re-routed to the immersion heater in your hot water cylinder. 

The cylinder is charged from your PV rather than your boiler. This saves on fuel for your boiler by utilising energy that would normally be lost to the grid.
Installing a Myenergi Eddi is much cheaper than installing a whole Solar Thermal system and can be installed for around £500.

Monitoring

The vast majority of installations also have a wifi monitoring system installed at the same time as standard practise and are included in the quote. This means you can keep track of your what your system is doing remotely. It is a great way of understanding your generation, usage, import, export and battery storage information.

It also means that we as the installer can check over your system remotely and make changes to settings and firmware updates as and when they are needed.
