What are the main benefits of solar panels?
Save on electricity bills when the panels are generating, get paid for every kWh the system produces (FIT) as well as getting paid for every kWh you export back to the grid. PV systems generally have no maintenance costs therefore once you invest to put the panels on, you will only see returns from then onwards.
Do you need planning permission for domestic solar?
Most domestic solar installations in the UK do not require planning permission. However, if they are ground mounted they do require planning permission no matter what the size. Planning permission may also be required for homes in a conservation area where the array is facing the main street. This can be checked from one of our surveyors on a free site visit.
Will Maden Eco come and carry out a site survey?
Maden Eco carry out site surveys free of charge and produce a report/quotation again with no obligations or charge. We will discuss with you all your requirements, needs and demands and find the best options and systems for you.
How much does the average solar panel (4kW) install cost?
Every system is different depending on roof types, panel and inverter requirements, as well as what systems you prefer. Maden Eco can discuss this in full with you when carrying out a free site survey at your property.
Are there ongoing maintenance costs after installing solar?
PV systems generally have no maintenance costs therefore once you invest to put the panels on, you will only see returns from then onwards.
How much can I earn from my solar panels
This varies depending on the angle and pitch of the roof, the system you select, the weather and the FIT tarrif. Maden Eco can undertake a free site survey for you and will provide you with a free no obligation quote that will detail an accurate estimate of potential earnings based on your solar panels.
