Do I need a South-facing roof for Solar Panels?

Solar Panels work well on any roof facing South, South East or South West. Although your Solar Panels will perform better and produce more electricity if they are South facing, they will still perform at 86% either facing due East or West.


How much roof space do I need for Solar Panels?

Solar Panels can be fitted to your roof or on your land. Generally, an 8-panel Solar PV system would be one of the smallest we recommend, and this could easily fit on the roof of an average 3-bed semi. Our popular panels generate the most energy per m2 so you can still get plenty of electricity from a smaller roof.


How long does it take to install my Solar system?

Most domestic Solar Panel installations take no more than a day with minimum disruption. Typically, the scaffolding will be erected a couple of days before our installation team arrive. We will then mount the panels on the roof and install the inverter, batteries and EV charger if ordered. Finally carrying out the internal wiring.


Do I need constant sunshine for my Solar Panels to work?

Solar Panels work in all daylight conditions and at their optimum at 10ºc. They even work in the snow.


Do I need planning permission?

Planning permission is not required unless your property is listed.


How much will I save?

We always want our customers to achieve the maximum savings possible, and every Fit Solar customer sees a reduction in their electricity bill, but the total savings depend on your choice of installation, usage and time of day.


Can I have a battery added to my existing system?

Yes, we supply and install batteries to any system not installed by us without affecting your current Feed In Tariff.

Absolutely no regrets

After several proposals and quotes, we chose Fit Solar to install our system; absolutely no regrets, cost-effective, professional advice and installation by a considerate and capable team.

My electricity bill has halved already.

I was recommended FIT Solar by another electrician. From the first contact, they were timely, efficient, and very knowledgeable. I followed their recommendations, and I could not be happier with the outcome. They installed three 5kw batteries and a 6kw solar panel system.

I only have electricity at the house (no gas), and I run an electric vehicle. I charge the car solely at home, heat my hot water, and my electricity bill has halved already.

I would highly recommend this local company.
