Can I Install Solar Panels In My Home?

Fortunately, the majority of UK homes are suitable for solar panel installation, which is good news for those looking to beat the energy crisis by generating some of their own power. The main factors that will impact how effective solar pv installation in your home are as follows:

What Are The Requirements For Solar Panels?

Even if your roof style or construction isn’t ideal for solar panel products, it is still likely you will be able to work with our energy agents to find the best way to maximise solar energy generation. At Target Co2, we offer a variety of different solar systems, and so can advise on the best solar solution for your private property.

What Direction Does My Roof Need To Face For Solar Panels?

Typically, a south-facing roof will gain the most from solar panels. This is because the south-side will see the sun when it is at its most intense for the longest period of time, maximising potential energy generation.

But, this does not mean that other roof types will not benefit from solar panel installation. Both east-facing and west-facing roofs will still see considerable energy generation throughout the course of the day. 

Is My Roof Right For Solar Panels?

While this will usually depend on the size and type of array you want installed, most UK homes will be able to support an array suitable for their energy needs.

A typical three-bedroom home requires a 3.5-4 kilowatt system to offset their energy expenditure. This will require 10-12 solar panels and roughly 28m2 of roof space. However, it’s important to keep in mind that obstructions such as vents or skylights can obstruct the layout of your panels, meaning more space is required. 

In terms of roof pitch, the best angle is between 30-40 degrees to capture the most sunlight for maximum energy generation. However, many homes with roof pitches outside of the optimal range are still able to see considerable benefit from their solar pv panels. 

Of course, the exact positives or challenges your roof design poses to solar panel installation is best determined by our certified solar installers, so if you’re interested in solar energy be sure to enquire for a quote assessment.
