Is your home in a suitable location for solar panels?
Ensure your home is not over-shadowed by trees or buildings. This can reduce the output of the system.
Do you need a building warrant for solar panels?
You may require a building warrant from Edinburgh Council but as certifiers of construction we can apply for the warrant and approve the installation.
Do you need planning permission?
Always obtain planning permission from your local government authority in case the property is a listed building or in a conservation area in Edinburgh. We can help with this.
