Install Solar Panels And Power Your Home On Green Energy
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Getting Solar Panels installed is a great way for your home, business or even community to become greener. Solar Panels are the key component to generating your own Solar energy. Solar Panels are made up of Photovoltaic (PV) cells, which absorb photons, packets of energy from the sun to generate electricity through the Photovoltaic effect. Powering your home through Solar energy is a great green energy solution, that will reduce both your carbon footprint and energy bills. Solar panels are now more advanced and accessible than ever and through Deege Solar they are affordable too!

Frequently Asked Questions about
Although there are no current grants in the UK for Solar Panels in the traditional sense, there are incentives. Currently, the only scheme open for new applications is known as the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG). The Smart Export Guarantee, came into effect on the 1st of January 2020 and allows all homeowners with Solar Panels installed (up to 5MW capacity), to receive payment for selling surplus energy back to the grid.
Despite popular belief, Solar PV Panels are not covered in the Green Homes Grant.
South-facing rooftops, benefit the most from a solar panel installation, as they are exposed to sunlight for the longest period of time. They also see the sun when it’s at its highest intensity, meaning that solar panels on a south-facing roof will generate the most solar energy. However, this doesn’t mean if your roof faces another direction you still wouldn’t benefit from having solar panels installed.
East and West-facing roofs are also suitable for solar panels and will still see a good deal of green energy generation throughout the course of the day. East or West facing installations only tend to lose around 15% of generation.
It is only North-facing roofs that are completely not recommended. This also doesn’t mean you can’t install a PV system if you have a flat roof. In fact, flat roofs are often ideal as they allow for a more flexible design. This is because installers can use mounts to angle the Solar Panels at the optimal angle. If in doubt, just get in touch and our design team can carry out an over-the-air survey on your roof.
Believe it or not, not everyone’s home or business is suitable for Solar. Your suitability for Solar Panels depends on four factors:
- Your current electricity consumption.
- The Pitch, Orientation and Space available on your roof.
- If there is any shading.
- The radiance level of your location.
- The Solar Panels must not be installed above the highest point of the property (not including chimneys).
- They must be installed in a way that makes the least visual impact to the property and surrounding area.
- The Solar Panels must not protrude more than 200mm from the surface of your roof.
Mono-crystalline: Mono-crystalline Solar panels are seen as the more premium panel, due to their high efficiency and darker/black appearance. A Mono-crystalline solar panel is made up of single-crystal silicon, meaning that the electron can generate more electricity as they can flow more freely. As they use the highest purity of silicon they are more efficient, with a higher power output than polycrystalline panels.
Polycrystalline: Polycrystalline solar panels alternatively have a lower efficiency, at a more affordable price point. The Solar Panels are made up of fragments of silicon crystal that have been melted together to make wafers and are mostly recognised by their blue-speckled finish.
