Solar PV Panel Installation

Solar panel installations have become a popular renewable energy source, with many buildings across Edinburgh now featuring the recognisable panels on their rooftops.

        • A typical solar system contains around 10 panels and generates direct current electricity (DC).
        • As the electricity used for household appliances is alternating current (AC).
        • An inverter is installed along with the system to converter DC electricity to AC.
        • The electricity generated can be used throughout your home or business or exported to the grid.

Battery Storage Systems

Installing a battery storage system allows you to store your  generated electricity for later use.

They are a great addition to your solar panel installation, helping you make the most of the power you produce.

If you generate more energy than you can use and store, you can sell the surplus back to the grid.

ECEC will provide expert advice and guidance on choosing the best battery storage system for your needs.

The Benefits of Solar Panel and Battery Storage Installations for

Commerical Properties & Private Homes

Reduce your Carbon Footprint

Generating your own solar power could reduce your premise’s carbon footprint.

Protection from Rising Energy Prices

You will be creating your own electricity once you have installed solar panels, reducing your reliance on domestic electricity.

Receive Payments for Extra Energy

If you generate more electricity than you require there is an option to sell this back to the national grid.

Store Excess Energy

     A battery storage system lets you capture electricity so you can use          it at another time. For example, you can store the electricity your solar panels generate during the day and use it at night.

      FAQs on Solar PV Panels & Battery Storage Systems

      Solar PV Panel Considerations?

      Points to consider are:-

      Your home is not over-shadowed by other buildings and trees.

      Your roof is structurally sound to take the weight.

      Sufficient roof space.

      A predominately south facing roof.

      Do I need a Building Warrant?

      You may require a building warrant so you will need to contact your local council. 

      Do I need Planning Permission?

      You may need to apply for planning permission from your local council if your property is a listed building or in a conservation area.

      How long does an Installation Take?

      This will depend upon the number of panels you have installed – we generally say anything from 2 to 5 days

      How much Electricity can I expect to Generate?

      This is dependant upon the size of the ‘arrays’ panels installed on your roof.

      Is Funding Available?

      The Scottish Government offer grants for installs.

      Note – there are conditions regarding your property which the government require to be in place before supporting a grant request.

      Some of Our Great Reviews

      Very happy with ECEC. From initial contact (special mention to Lynda in office keeping me informed) to quote being provided and works carried out was all done in a very efficient way. Job ended up being more complicated but no change to initial quote and option to price up further work, with no obligation, was given. Also plenty of free advice was given by the guys carrying out the works.

      I have used Edinburgh City Electrical Contractors on a number of occasions related to previous employment, and used their services for my own property recently. The response rate is always fantastic! The communication is quick, smooth, informative and makes the whole experience hassle free.
      The quality of the service is great too. The maintenance providers are polite, timely and effective- never experienced any problems with using this company.
      If you need any electrical work done then I would highly recommend using Edinburgh City Electrical Contractors.

      Very prompt efficient service. I reduced by one star because I thought it was pretty expensive but as I needed someone urgently I was prepared to pay the extra. Overall impressed.

      This was my first time using ECEC and they did a great job. I had some spotlights fitted in the living room, they were very quick to respond with a quote which was competitive with other electricians and very quick to come out and carry out the work. It looks great! I have now requested a quote for additional work now that I know their quality and responsiveness. Would definitely recommend.
