How does solar work?

  • Is there enough sun in the UK to power solar panels?
    Yes! Almost 60% of solar radiation reaches the UK, and in some parts of the south, it gets more sunlight than Germany, the biggest solar market in the world.
  • Do I need planning permission?
    Unless your home is listed, solar panel installations are typically considered 'permitted development', which means no planning permission is required.
  • Can my neighbours object to my solar panels?
    There isn't anything your neighbours can do to stop the installation of your solar panels, as long as they do not obstruct their home in any way.
  • Do I need constant sunshine for my Solar Panels to produce electricity?
    No. Solar panels work in all daylight conditions.
