Solar Panels On Garage Roof Scotland

Have you been thinking about solar panels? Did you realise that you can have them installed on your garage roofSolar panels are becoming more popular on garage roofs and they can provide electricity all year round and increase the value of your property. It can be an easy instalment especially if your garage already has an electricity supply cable linking it to your main house, this will be able to support your PV system. 

However if there is no linking cable to the house the process will require a cable to be laid, which is also a straightforward job. Most people fit as many panels as their roof can take and we can tell you how many you can fit along with the various options open to you. We will check your roof for suitability and efficiency looking at facing direction and number of panels required. Not every detached garage roof is optimal for solar panels. Garage roofs that don’t get a lot of sunlight or have too little free space on them won’t be able to maximise the benefits of solar energy.

Solar panels save you money on a yearly basis, sun powered means free power. No pollutant emissions, whether it is produced or consumed, so you will be helping the environment too. And your solar panels will be connecting your other electronic devices, garage lights and other usage, which can come in handy with ever increasing threats of power cuts from the national grid.

Planning Permission For Garage Roof Solar Panels?

Since 2008, you can install solar panels on your detached garage without planning permission. As long as they are placed on a building which is not a listed building or within a conservation area. You do need to know that there are some rules in the UK about solar panels on your
garage roof:

*Must be installed to fit in with the appearance of the building or area.

*Should not project more than 20cm from the edge of the roof.

*Should be removed if they no longer generate electricity.

*Should not exceed the highest point of the roof. This excludes the chimney.

What If Your Garage Roof Is Flat?

You can still have solar panels installed on a flat roof and there are even advantages, with easier maintenance and less prominent from the street view. They are easy to install on a flat garage roof and will use less material per square metre making them more cost effective.
You will have to ensure proper drainage as any standing water can be a hazard to your solar panels, these options can be discussed when you decide on what you require for your own garage roof.
