Swapping to solar power is becoming increasingly popular as the cost of traditional energy is on the increase. This combined with the move to greener fuels to protect the global environment make solar an attractive option.

Here are three things to consider before you ‘go solar’.

1. Suitable roof – the best place for your solar panels is on the roof. It is important to make sure that you choose the location carefully. You want to get maximum exposure to sunlight, especially if you are planning on using solar power all year.

Do not worry about other weather conditions too much. Rain will not hurt your panels, and will in fact help to keep them clean. Equally, your solar panels will be angled so snow should slide off.

2. Getting the right kit – The best way to install solar energy to your house is to buy a kit. It is important to make sure that you buy the best kit you can or you will end up paying more money to buy extras or to hire someone to help with the installation.

As with most things in life you get what you pay for, so it may not be a good idea to get the cheapest kit on the market.


Financing your change to solar power – The effects of global warming are causing great concerns to our governments. Consequently many governments and local authorities have grants available if you are considering converting to a ‘greener’ energy source. Before you choose your solar power kit you should do some research into what funds you may be entitled to claim.

If you are not sure where to start a good place is with the manufacturers of the solar panel kits. These people want you to convert to solar power and they are usually a great source of information.

Try to find a regional office that will know what is best specifically in your area and will be familiar with the building types as well as the grants available.
