Solar Tips

Getting the best out of your solar products

With the right product and a little planning, solar can and does work year round in the UK. Naturally what you can expect in terms of performance in the winter, is not going to be what you might get at the height of summer but it can still do a solid job for you.

A poorly positioned panel is often the crucial difference between satisfaction and disappointment when it comes to the performance of your product.

Put simply: The fewer obstructions between the sun and your solar panel the better your unit will perform.

Your solar panel should be:

South facing or as near as possible

Not Behind Glass!

Outside of any glass windows and wiped clean from time to time

Keep out of shadows

Free from any shadows; particularly important between 10am - 2pm

Keep out of shadows
Correctly angled toward the sun for the time of year
