Got a question about solar PV in general? With over 20 years experience, we're sure to have the answer.
It really depends on the roof area available and the household's power need. Most domestic PV systems are between 2-4kWp. 4kWp is the largest possible without requiring consent from your electricity distributor.
Provided the panels are at an angle greater than 15 degrees, they are self cleaning and require no additional maintenance other than a standard annual electrical check.
Our lead times can vary greatly depending on our current order book. For a domestic system, it’s usually between 4 and 8 weeks. We can give you an estimated lead time on request though this will be subject to change until we receive your order.
No, although a South facing roof will generate the most energy, East and West facing roofs can also be suitable for solar. In fact as they often generate more in the morning and evening, they can work out more cost effective if your home is empty during the day.
For a system under 4kWp you do not need permission to install, but if connecting to the grid, they should be informed of the installation and commissioning
Back in February, GB-Sol provided free PV Slate installation training to pupils from a local youth club. This was for a project they'd designed - a digital bench to provide shelter to the homeless and also facilities to charge mobile phones.
Impressed by such an innovative idea, GB-Sol donated the PV Slates as well as a whole kit including batteries, charge controller and made special double USB charger and a 12 volt adaptor, to supply 24 hour power.
This week, GB-Sol had a special visit from pupils at Hawthorn High School. Working with Newydd Housing Association, they are designing a digital bench at a Pontypridd Church. It will provide a sheltered place for the homeless to sleep, and include USB charging facilities powered by solar.
The students brought along their roof frame and GB-Sol’s PV Product Manager, Lloyd Symonds, taught the school pupils how to install the PV Slates. These were fixed to the South elevation with natural slates on the opposite pitch.
A special charging pack was designed including two USB ports and an LED light. This will be connected to a battery to allow use of the electricity outside of daylight hours.
