Solar Panel Surveys in Leicester

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.

We determine the correct solar array for your solar energy project

By attaching our Solmetic SunEye solar survey tool on an 8 metre extending carbon fibre pole, we are able to position it right next to where the solar array will be installed. This means we can take really accurate readings of the solar irradiance and shading issues. This makes our quotations of predictive system performance as accurate as they can be.

Our solar energy survey includes the following;

  • Measurement of roof orientation and inclination to ascertain the best position for the solar array.
  • Solar irradiance and shading analysis from the position of the solar array using our Solmetic SunEye 210 solar survey tool.
  • Structural calculations to ensure the roof is suitable for the load of the solar array and that the correct type and number of roof fixings are used for the geographical location and height.
  • A check to ensure that the electrical circuits in the property are in good order and will be suitable for a PV solar array connection.
  • And finally a NO PRESSURE SALES chat, hopefully over a cup of tea to discuss how you use your property, electricity, any aesthetic concerns, future building plans, warranties etc. All of this helps us to design the most cost effective solar solution for you.
