On all solar panel installations South Scotland Solar Ltd completes, our team are sure to have a chat with you about your homes energy usage. On every job we will always explain how best to use your solar PV system, including advice on what energy tariff is most suited to your needs and system.

If its worth charging your solar battery in a cheap night rate, discussing what percent you should charge and if its worth discharging your battery to the grid to receive extra export payments. Factors such as the best time in the day to do this for higher export payments will all be covered. 

We will also demonstrate how you can do this and more through the app, which will change with the seasons depending if there is more or less sunshine.

South Scotland Solar Ltd offers full after care advice and support on charging / discharging, as well as anything else relating to the you getting optimum results from your solar PV system.

Really pleased we went with Callum, professional, friendly, and excellent service, which he delivered on time, with no interruptions to us (as we work from home). His quote was the most competitive, and spent the most time assessing our needs. He then explained the different options and which one he thought was best for our energy consumption. Callum gives ongoing support to help guide us through the app and work out the best ways to maximise our energy and when to sell back to the grid, a complicated system made easy by having his knowledge and support.. I would highly recommend.

Normally I don't leave reviews but felt compelled to do so for South Scotland Solar. On looking for a company to provide solar panels and a battery, I was recommended South Scotland Solar by several people. I asked 3 companies for quotes and Callum was the only person that came when he said he would and was extremely thorough, spending much longer than the other companies, going over every detail and checking all the aspects of the property. I was impressed straight away with his manner and professionalism and was very surprised how competitive his quote was when it arrived. The detail he provided was excellent and was by far the best presented and easiest to understand of all the quotes. I engaged Callum's services and he gave me a clear timescale. It was a slightly unusual install in a large Summerhouse with a non-standard roof. Prior to installation, some of my requirements changed. Callum took this in his stride and his communication was excellent, repyling to my messages very quickly. He came up with a new plan based on my changed requirements, specifically tailored for me. When it came to the install time, he arrived on time, when he said he would and I can testify to how hard he worked throughout. He is clearly a hard-working person. The standard of his work was first class from start to finish. and cleaned up after himself. In addition to this, he was a genuinely nice person, talking about his young family and sharing a joke or two. It really was a pleasure to have him in my home. In terms of the install, I couldn't be happier and it's exceeded what I had hoped for. It's great to see how much I'm saving! I have no hesitation in recommending Callum, he is top of his class, a decent person, and is clearly passionate about his work and business. If you're reading this and pondering who to go with, honestly, don't look any further, you really won't be disappointed.

Expert Solar Panel Installation

Securing a professional installation for your solar panel system is essential to maximise its effectiveness and the efficiency of your battery storage unit. A well installed system not only guarantees optimal safety but also protects your significant investment.

Installing solar panels is a significant financial commitment that requires careful planning to achieve peak performance and efficiency. Take into account the following crucial factors for a successful solar panel installation:

Above all, ensure that the installation is carried out by solar panel installers accredited by MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme). South Scotland Solar Ltd holds MCS certification number NAP-69293.

Securing at least three quotes for solar installation is vital. Some companies could overcharge, and having multiple quotes allows you to compare and identify any disparities in pricing.

Perform a comprehensive site assessment to evaluate the available sunlight, potential shading issues from nearby trees or buildings, and identify the optimal location and angle for solar panel installation. Factors such as the orientation and tilt of the panels significantly impact their efficiency.

Analyse your energy consumption habits to ascertain the suitable size for your solar energy system. Take into account both your current and future energy requirements to ensure the system is appropriately sized.

Establish a budget for your solar panel installation, taking into account both the initial expenses and the potential long-term savings on energy bills. Research available financing options and government incentives to make the investment more financially viable.

Select solar panels from reputable manufacturers known for their exceptional quality. Take into account factors such as efficiency, warranty, and durability, particularly given Scotland’s climate. While high quality panels may come with a higher initial cost, they often offer superior performance and reliability in the long run.

Choose a suitable inverter that converts the DC electricity generated by the panels into AC electricity for your home use. Take into consideration factors like efficiency, compatibility with your panels, and the ability to integrate with energy storage solutions, if needed.

Determine if a solar battery storage system is necessary to store surplus energy for use during low sunlight periods or power outages. Energy storage solutions can boost your energy independence and resilience.

Secure the required permits and approvals from local authorities. Familiarise yourself with local regulations, building codes, and guidelines from homeowners’ associations concerning solar panel installations.

Implement a routine maintenance plan, covering tasks such as cleaning the panels, inspecting for damages, and monitoring the system’s performance. Our PV systems are equipped with monitoring tools that enable you to monitor energy production and identify potential issues.

Familiarise yourself with the warranties offered by the solar panel manufacturer, inverter manufacturer, solar battery manufacturer, and the installation company.

Take into account the environmental impact of your selection of solar panels, considering factors such as the materials used, recycling options, and the carbon footprint associated with the manufacturing process.

By thoughtfully evaluating these factors and consulting with solar energy professionals, you can guarantee a successful and efficient solar panel installation customised to meet your specific requirements and circumstances.

F.A.Q About Solar Panel Installation

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions about your solar panel installation.

The area required for solar panels varies based on your energy needs and the efficiency of the panels. Typically, a residential solar panel system necessitates approximately 100-400 square feet of roof space per kilowatt of installed capacity.

The duration of the installation process typically ranges from a few days to a couple of weeks, contingent upon the size and complexity of the solar panel system. Weather conditions and permit approvals can also impact the timeline.

Rest assured, we will maintain clear and open communication with you after booking and throughout the installation process to ensure you are well informed every step of the way.

The permits and documentation necessary for solar panel installation differ based on the location. In Scotland, especially for residential solar panel installations, the need for planning permission is uncommon.

A trustworthy MCS installer like us can assist you in managing the paperwork and acquiring any required planning permission.

Certainly not!

While it is technically feasible to install solar panels on your own, it is highly advised to engage a professional installer. This guarantees that your panels are properly commissioned, and your product warranty remains intact. Solar panel installation involves electrical work, structural analysis, and adherence to local regulations. Hiring a licensed MCS installer ensures that the system is secure, efficient, and qualifies for any available incentives.

Indeed, numerous governments provide incentives and grants to encourage the adoption of solar energy. These incentives can significantly lower the upfront costs of installing solar panels.

If you are eligible, solar panel grants and loans are accessible through Home Energy Scotland, and we will assist you throughout the application process.

Certainly, we regularly conduct installations to upgrade our customers’ solar PV systems.

The possibility of an upgrade depends on the age and condition of the panels and is best evaluated on a case-by-case basis. For more specific information, kindly email us or give us a call to initiate a detailed discussion.

Certainly, we offer the installation of solar battery storage systems to complement the existing solar panels owned by individuals.
