Design & Install
Solar PV panels can be mounted either on, or within the roof structure; in-roof is generally only utilised during new construction, as the PV system can replace the requirement to purchase a roof covering. It is however advisable to mount the panels on the traditional on-roof framework, which keeps the panels cooler by improving air flow underneath the panels – therefore aiding efficiency. There are many different roof types i.e. tiles, corrugated sheets (metal or fibre cement) etc. and consequently there are a vast variety of fixing methods. Before any installation work is undertaken structural surveys and wind loading calculations are conducted, ensuring integrity of the existing roof is maintained, whether being installed on a pitched or flat roof. Alternatively, the PV system can be ground mounted; multiple panels are mounted on framework supported by posts, which can be driven or screwed into the ground.
