Panel Position?

  • Pitched roofs- solar PV panels can either be mounted above the roof or integrated within the tiles.
  • Above roof- mounting systems, typically used when retro fitting rails are fixed over roof tiles and anchored to the structure beneath.
  • In roof- integrated mounting systems typically used on new build, the panels are fixed directly to the structure flush with the roof tiles.
  • Flat roofs- panels are mounted on pitched frames that are either fixed to the roof structure or ballasted.

The selection of PV panel type and mounting system will be based on factors such as:

  • Roof type
  • Desired aesthetics
  • New build or retrofit
  • Local planning issues
  • Budget
  • Local site conditions
