The installation is comprised of multiple aspects and it’s possible that these will be undertaken by different engineers on different days. Our company will always seek to minimise the disruption at your site and will discuss and agree with you the dates and methods of each aspect of the installation.

The key steps in the process are as follows:

Site preparation: This includes Scaffolding to be erected where required
Fixing the roof attachments( mounting rails)
Mount the PV modules
Fit electrical equipment
Electrical connections
Commissioning & handover
Issuing warranty & completion certificate

The Finished solar system is comprised of solar modules interconnected electrically in parallel strings of series connected modules. The solar modules are fastened to a support structure that is fastened to the roof of the property. Before practical installation work commences a health & safety assessment and method statement may be required.

Our company will supply & install all the electrical components that enable the PV system to be connected to the grid and for you to claim your feed in tariff rates. It is also possible that the local electricity company will need to change your meter for a Bi-directional one. Once all the elements are in place the system will be commissioned and will start generating power and start saving you money.

Upon the completion of the installation you will receive a completion certificate, a handover pack with all system specifications, and an information sheet explain what to do in the event of a fault.
