Light Renewables supply and install solar panels tailored to the bespoke energy requirements of the customer. We also set up feed-in tariff registration which enables you to receive payment for the energy you produce.

Below details some of the frequently asked questions about solar panels and the installation process.

What are solar panels?

Solar panels generate electricity by converting the energy from the sun into usable power.

How do they work?

When the sun’s rays strike the solar panel it causes the electrons in the panel to create a current. The inverter takes the current and converts it into AC electricity so that it can be used in your home.

How do they make you money?

All of the electricity that your solar panels produce can be used to power your home and any excess electricity is automatically sent back to the national grid which the government pays you for.

What if it is cloudy?

Even on cloudy days you still generate around 50% of the electricity that you would on a clear day.

How long does it take to install the panels?

It usually is a 14 day period between the paying of your initial deposit to the completion of your solar installation.

What is the process for your panel installation?

  • Our surveyors assess the suitability of your home for solar panels and will provide you with a quotation for the costs involved.
  • You will then need to pay an initial deposit payment of 25% of the total cost of the installation.
  • A technical and structural survey will then be carried out to assess the building structure, weight loading and snow & wind loading.
  • We will then arrange with you your installation date.
  • On this date our team will set up scaffolding for the work to take place, roofers and electricians will then install your panels and commission the installation. We will then set up your tariff registration and notify the relevant network operators.
  • Finally sit back and earn money from your solar panels knowing you are also helping the environment.
