Solar Panel Mounting Options

Solar PV panels can be mounted in a number of different ways. We will help you choose the system that best fits your property and budget. 


 

On-roof

  • Most common mounting system for sloping roofs
  • Suitable for range of slates and tiles - system sits proud of roof surface
  • Roof anchor and rail system    
  • Allows air to circulate increasing panel efficiency    


 

In-roof

  • Aesthetically elegant solution
  • Tiles are removed and replaced by panels then flashed in to maintain integrity of roof
  • Ideal for conservation areas, areas of outstanding natural beauty and national parks
  • Slight efficiency losses due to lack of air circulation


 

Flat Roof

 Panels are generally mounted on metal frame systems

  • Angled at about 15 degrees to improve system yield
  • Ballast system or lightweight interlocking systems available to avoid piercing roof structure
  • Ideal for east / west facing roofs


 

Ground Mounted

 Ground-mounted structure orientated and angled to maximise energy capture

  • Suitable for greenfield and brownfield sites
  • Rapid installation requiring limited foundations
  • Withstands wind speeds of up to 120 mph


 

Solar Tiles/Slates

  • Virtually seamless integration with existing roof
  • Tiles are removed and replaced by solar / slates then flashed in to maintain integrity of roof
  • Ideal for conservation areas, areas of outstanding natural beauty and national parks
  • Less yield in comparison to panels 
  • Suitable for a range of slates and tiles
