Solar Installation Plymouth - How ESE Solar Operate

We use our bespoke Solar PV design system to estimate and plan how Solar PV will work for you and the family. We have an information network set up to give you feedback on everything the Solar PV system can do for you. Our solar PV process will provide you with the following: 

  • System Performance – We prove the effectiveness of our systems by calculating the amount you, specifically, actually save whilst using Solar Energy. We match it up compared to what you would’ve spent without Solar PV (based on old energy bills) and calculate your overall savings too. All of this is next to the original cost of the system so that, inevitably, you can watch as the plan pays for itself and more.
  • Environmental Benefits – Our system can calculate the number of carbon emissions (CO2, SOx and NOx) avoided using Solar Energy over energy from the national grid. Since we know this is rather scientific, we also provide analogies in telling you how many trees were saved as a metric.
  • Electricity Bills – All our customers mention how stark the changes are to how much they’re spending every year, and that can be readily seen at any time through our system. Most people who install Solar Panels see their triple-digit bills fall to double digits yearly, and that’s not even taking into account those who choose to store and/or sell their excess energy.
  • Financial Details – Our specialist staff don’t hide anything from you. Your upfront cost for solar will be exactly as we say, with no hidden, unmentioned charges being added to you at any time.

What Type Of Maintenance Do Solar Panels Need In Plymouth?

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 protected 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, leave the cleaning to a specialist solar panel cleaning company.
  • 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 undoubtedly make it through, 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 the sky and the solar panel mean that the system will draw in less energy. As a result, ensure all possible obstructions are removed, most likely foliage or trees. Our team will point out any obstructions before installation.
  • 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 issue, especially if you’ve been following the above steps closely.

With an intermediate level of rain each year in Plymouth, auto-cleaning of your solar panels will often occur – the rain effectively washing away any dirt. In periods of dry weather, or if you are located in a particularly dusty area, there may be a buildup of dust and dirt, requiring a manual clean of your solar panels.

Some of the most common questions about installing solar panels in Plymouth 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 permission from your Plymouth local authority
  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 sun rays in order to function, but rather simply sunlight. The sun is far too powerful to be completely 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 in general is known for its fairly grey weather, and yet there are still widespread reports of Solar PV Systems reducing energy bills by a significant amount.

Solar 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 so they should house it in an area of your residence that is protected from the worst of the Plymouth weather.
