Solar panel installation tips

⦁ make sure you check before hand which grants and schemes are available in your local area as you could save a lot of money. In some cases, your solar panels will need to be installed by a specifically registered, certified company in order to receive the grant. As a result, you need to know this first, before you begin shopping around.
⦁ shop around solar panel providers and compare quotes and professionalism. Make sure you choose a company you trust, not just the cheapest option.
⦁ choose a qualified and professional company, after all, if there are any issues after the installation, you want to be able to contact the company to resolve these
⦁ make sure you check that your roof can support the weight of the solar panels. This is something we at the Eco Renewables Group do during our technical consultation.
⦁ monitor the times when you most use your electricity. For a lot of people out at work, electricity is used in the evening. As a result, you might be better off installing a battery to store the days generated electricity.

Solar panel maintenance tips

⦁ keep the solar panels free of dirt and debris like leaves to ensure maximum efficiency
⦁ keep all nearby trees trimmed and make sure they are not casting shade over your solar panels. Ask neighbours to do the same
⦁ make sure you know and expert to call for advanced maintenance work, like changing or repairing an inverter. Attempting to do this yourself could be dangerous, and will no doubt cost you more money in the long run.
