PV for Self Builders

GB-Sol are happy to support self builders and provide a free training service to help anyone building their own home or renovating and looking to incorporate solar PV technology.

Building your own house can be an exciting and challenging project. GB-Sol want to make it as simple as possible when it comes to the design of your solar roof. As we offer a variety of different solar products, whatever the building construction, there will be a solar PV option to suit. We can offer help and advice through the planning process, all the way through to design and installation. We can recommend local installers where necessary or train your own group of builders at our training facility.

Whether your self build project is nearing completion or you’re just starting to look at the possibility, we can help you through the process. The earlier you can in touch with us, the more advice and information we can provide to ensure the planning and design goes as smoothly as possible.
