Solar panels are an eco-friendly technology using the sun’s energy to generate electricity. They comprise small cells made of a special material called silicon. When sunlight shines on these cells, it creates an electric current that is then utilised to power your business or home.
A solar PV system usually consists of multiple panels, and each panel can produce about 250W-400W of energy when the sunlight is strong. An inverter is installed as the system’s component to convert the electricity from the panels into a form your appliances can use.

In most cases, solar PV installations on homes can be done without getting permission from the local authority. This is because they are usually considered ‘permitted development’ under the law. However, there are some exceptions.
You must obtain planning permission to install solar panels on a flat roof; panels must be bent at least 0.2 metres further from the roof slope to receive sufficient sunlight, and doing so breaks the permitted development rule, which says that the system cannot extend more than 0.2 metres above the plane of the roof slope.
Other than the flat roofs, a listed building or monument cannot have solar panels installed on it without obtaining both listed buildings and planning permission. These types of properties have additional regulations and restrictions in place.
