Solar PV installation review
Mr Morris ” We had many quotes for solar panels before choosing RB Grant. Many of the other companies used pushy salesman who knew very little about solar PV. We were very happy with the survey and the information provided relating to the panels and the inverter. The fact they did not want a deposit was very reassuring and we felt happy that the both the price and the design was good. The system was installed in the day. The electrician worked inside and managed to hide the cable and even cleaned up after himself. The roofers actually alerted us to a few broken and squint tiles which they repaired and no extra cost. The system was explained to us by the electrician before he left. Mr Grant also helped us fill in all of the necessary paper work for our energy supplier. We have generated far more than was estimated in the last 6 months and could not recommend RB Grant enough. A quality company who really care about their customers. We have also recommended RB Grant to our friends and we have received a finders fee from RB Grant. If you need help with solar PV that I would look no further than RB Grant the service we received was first class”

How do Solar PV Systems work?
Solar Photovoltaic systems (solar panels) use energy from the sun to create electricity used to run household appliances and lighting. When sun light shines on a Photovoltaic (PV) panel, an electric field is created across the cell resulting in the flow of electricity.
Using a renewable energy can save you money and help reduce climate change.

Is my home right for Solar PV Panels?
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.
Is your roof strong enough?
Solar panels and the mounting can be heavy. The roof must be strong enough to take their weight. We can arrange a structural engineer report where required.
