Every potential location is professionally surveyed using our state-of-the-art Solmetric SunEye solar site analysis tool. This piece of equipment can be extended on a pole to the correct roof height, from where it takes a snapshot of the sky.
Positioning the Solmetric SunEye where the solar array will be installed allows for an extremely accurate measurement of the amount of annual solar irradiance and any potential shadow issues that the potential array will have. This information is then analysed by our software package to produce an MCS approved shading analysis chart.
In total, our professional site survey process takes around an hour to complete. We will also take all the relevant measurements required to be able to design the solar array, including the roof orientation and slope and covering type.
As well listing the price of the PV solar energy installation, our quote will also detail the predicted system performance and indicate the income and saving that this will result in. Taking these measurements accurately and on site means that the predicted performance of the solar array given in our quotation can be relied upon to be meaningful and accurate.
