Solar Panel Installers County Durham

ESE Solar is committed to doing its part in helping Britain in its mission to reduce carbon emissions across the country to zero in the Net Zero 2050 initiative. That’s why when we install Solar PV systems, we do it to the highest standard possible.

We’ve done this work long enough to know that properties are all built differently, with different amounts of available roof space. This means that installation jobs are never uniform, so we endeavour to use our bespoke Solar Design philosophy to make use of spare space on the roof with our powerful solar photovoltaic (Solar PV) system. It boasts high power, 20 high performance with 400-watt panels, and battery storage.

Solar Panels Durham - How We Operate

Our Solar PV Design system is a feedback network, giving you stats and figures on different things your system does for you. That way, you can see the benefit of what you’re getting with a solar panel installation, as well as check the health of your system and see how much you’re doing for the environment. Our system gives information on the following:

  • Savings – We calculate how much you save with our system, comparing it to what you would’ve spent if you didn’t have our system. This is calculated based on your previous energy bills. On top of this, we also show you how much you’re saving toward the overall cost of the system. 
  • Environmental Benefits – We can calculate the overall harmful emissions avoided by using solar energy as opposed to the energy from the grid, and compare it to the number of trees you’ve effectively saved as a result. When you move to renewable energy solutions, it’s important that you’re clear on the good it is doing.
  • Electricity Bills – The changes to your electricity bill will be stark, and our system will show you this. You will see how much you spend on electricity each year, and how much you’re saving by integrating solar panels into your home. You can expect to see triple digits fall to double digits after you install solar panels.
  • Financial Details – Our system and specialist staff don’t hide anything from you. Your upfront bill will be exactly as we say, with no hidden, unmentioned charges being added to you at any time. What you have paid will be fully apparent, as well as the discounted payback period, the total return on the investment you have made, and the rate at which that investment is being returned.

What Type Of Maintenance Do Solar Panels Need In County Durham?

Solar Panels are touted as low-maintenance equipment that can operate for several decades with very little labour involved in the upkeep of the device. That being said, the maintenance recommended will keep your devices efficient and safe from damage:

  • Cleaning – A dirty solar panel can be cleaned easily with standard soap. However, we recommend using a soft sponge, as solar panel surfaces can be delicate. Any scratches can reduce efficiency, which is possible with rough friction. On top of that, make sure that the cleaner you use is not abrasive, as this can cause scratches. Alternatively, call in an expert solar panel cleaning company to avoid any risk, especially if you have a real problem with troublesome bird droppings.
  • Inspecting for damage – It’s best to check both the solar panel and the connections (such as the inverters and batteries) after any particularly nasty weather situation. Whilst your solar panels will almost certainly be ok, you may find that there could be some debris lowering efficiency, or that the weather has caused some damage to the connections. 
  • Clear area of foliage – Obstructions between your solar panel and daylight will mean that the system will draw in less energy. As a result, make sure that all possible obstructions are gone, the most likely being foliage or trees. Whilst our team will point out any obstructions before installation, it’s worth bearing in mind any changes your neighbours make that could impact on your solar electricity producing capacity.
  • Monitor Performance – Your solar panels should always be producing energy throughout the daylight hours. Whilst some days will be more productive than others, consistent drops in quality may be indicative of some sort of damage, especially if you’ve been following the above steps closely.


County Durham can experience a fair degree of rainfall which can be useful for aiding the self-cleaning abilities of modern solar panels. Most dust and dirt will just wash away due to the hydrophobic coating on most solar PV panels. Bear in mind that rain itself will not cause any damage to the solar panels.

Here at ESE Solar, we offer a range of maintenance services that may prove useful to you on your solar journey.

Some of the most common questions about installing solar panels in Durham are answered for you here…

In the vast majority of cases, the answer is no. That being said, there are several fairly uncommon criteria in which you will need to apply for permission with your local planning authority, which is typically your local council. The rules on when you need planning permission are as follows:

  1. If your solar panels are to protrude more than 200mm from your roof’s surface or the wall, and they are higher than the highest point of the roof (minus the chimney), then you may need your  Local Councils permission. 
  2. If your solar panels are to be installed in a conservation area or a listed building, you will need planning permission. 
  3. If your solar panels are to be built in a visible, reachable location – such as your front lawn, you may need planning permission. 
  4. If your property is a flat or apartment, meaning the solar panels will be built essentially on shared property that you don’t fully own, you may need planning permission.

Contrary to popular belief, solar panels do not need direct contact with sunrays to function, but rather simply sunlight. The sun is far too powerful to be blocked by clouds, so your solar panels can still generate energy if it has access to “indirect” sunlight. Although it’s true that energy production will be lowered on days when there are heavy clouds in the sky, solar technology has advanced to the level that it will still produce more than enough to be a worthwhile investment. After all, the UK is generally known for its fairly grey weather, and yet there are still widespread reports of Solar PV Systems reducing energy bills by a significant amount.

If possible, for a more energy efficient system you should aim for your new solar PV system to be installed on south facing roofs for even better results. With that said, you can still make the switch to sustainable energy without a south facing roof, and it’ll still meet your energy needs so long as you trust the design of your solar PV panels to expert installers like ESE.

Solar PV batteries are installed in an enclosed space, either indoors or outdoors. Whilst your solar panels can take a beating from the weather, your batteries can’t. Damage will be inevitable, and whilst it won’t cause fire damage, it will reduce their performance and lifespan to the point where a replacement would be needed. Instead, efforts will be made to house your solar battery in an area of your residence that is completely protected from the worst of the County Durham weather.
