From generating electricity for your building or producing energy for heating and hot water applications, there are significant environmental benefits to be gained by incorporating a photovoltaic (PV) panel system into your building’s roof design.

We discussed all things solar with Technical Product Manager Ben Whitemore and asked him some of your most frequently asked questions about the high-performance PV panel system, Solarise…

Benefits of a solar PV system

Powering your building with solar PV systems will positively impact the environment by using fewer fossil fuels and reducing reliance on the National Grid.

Further benefits include:

  • Cut your electricity bills
  • Reduce your carbon emissions
  • Increase your property value
  • Fast return on investment
  • Payback in as little as 4 years
  • Super Tax deduction (available until the end of March 2023)
  • Operational leasing available
  • Low maintenance
  • Quick installation

 

How much energy is generated from a Solarise system?

This will depend on several factors, such as the geographical location, orientation and roof pitch. Your dedicated Technical Manager will carry out detailed surveys and PV yield analysis reports to calculate your Solarise installation’s expected energy savings and financial benefits.

 

How long will it take to get a return on my investment?

On average, you can expect a return on your investment in as little as 4 years and typically within 6 years of a Solarise installation, making renewable energy generation an excellent return on capital investment.

 

How long will the Solarise system last?

Solarise comes with an industry-leading 10 year Single-Point Guarantee. The system is built to last, where the Solarise panels will generate at least 80% of the initial output in the 25th year!

 

 

What type of maintenance does Solarise require?

Solar panels are generally self-cleaning, especially if positioned at an angle of over 15 degrees. We advise that Solarise systems be visually inspected once a year and cleaned if necessary to ensure they perform to their best.

 

Do I need a south-facing roof?

Whilst the south-facing roof is preferred, north, east or west-facing roofs can absolutely still benefit thanks to our extensive range of available frames, mounts and fixings. It means that the Solarise system can be installed on any roof orientation and still achieve electricity generation targets.

 

Which roof systems are compatible with Solarise?

The bespoke frame and mounting options ensure the Solarise system can be installed on any Garland UK waterproofing system, regardless of whether the roof is flat or pitched. This includes bituminous membranes, metal profiles, cold-applied liquid coatings, or green roof systems!
