  2. Tiles sitting up. Roof won’t be as waterproof as it was before PV was
    installed. Strings not tied to rail so cable isn’t damaged by roof tiles…
    Hmmm… No comment :D

  3. This looks like the same thing being offered by SOLAREKIT,COM

  4. Professionally installed systems : Have a structural assessment carried out
    by a competent engineer to allow for wind/snow and loading/uplift. Have
    tiles cut acurately to match correct brackets- No tiles sitting up…
    Brackets follow roof pitch and capilliary action is probably only minimally
    increased if at all. Have vent gaps under the panels so tile temps are not
    be much different from panel temps unless the sun is out when you will be
    earning money. Must stop buying those cowboy systems!

  5. Wouldn’t having the inverter in a hot loft be a fire risk? I’d rather see
    it near the consumer unit in the kitchen.

  6. I would like to know all info about cost, life warranty and total power
    generated per panel.

  8. Appreciate it once again thank you for your help understanding how these
    solar panels work.

  9. Do the installers also take care of the electrical parts, or do they just
    connect them to the pannels? This is because in Portugal only 2 guys are
    needed to build the scaffold, install the panels (the wires are already
    prepared by other team), connect the pannels to the wires, between
    eachother and to the inverter, and taking down the scaffold. All of this in
    one day. I want to know this because I moved to the UK, and I’m looking for
    a job as an installer, but would like to know beforehand.

  10. And on a slate roof arghhhhh

    By Chris Parker on Feb 18, 2014

  11. The roof trusses aren’t designed to take the extra loadings, particularly
    wind lift, from solar panels. Also, those metal fixings will lift the edge
    of the tiles above, making the roof itself more susceptible to wind lift,
    and to frost damage as water will track between the bracket and tile due to
    capilliary action. Plus you’ll end up with a damp, cold space below the
    solar panels, risking frost damage to that area of tiling. Not advisable.

  12. Solar Panels are Expensive It will take you 10 Years to Pay Back If you
    want to get Paid Back In less than 1 Year Go to Google and Search for “Top
    DIY Solar Panels Research” It is a website that explains how to do it!

  13. I was one of those who never had the courage But now that we have managed
    to build a solar panel and have advanced in knowledge and think make money
    from it not only saves It is unbelievable You can find here
    ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM all the tips guidance …. will learn how to
    build end help build keeping in touch with them and THOSE with EXPERIENCE
    help them find what they need and guiding is one of the best in the market
