Frequently Asked Questions

There are many questions you may have before having a solar panel system in your home. 

If the answers you seek aren't below, our team of experts are on hand to answer any questions you might have4.

How do we install your solar panels?

Want to know what happens when we install solar panels on your roof? We have an expert installation team to help you transition to solar with ease.

Is it sunny enough to have solar panels in the UK?

Despite the UK's reputation we actually get more than enough solar energy to make solar panels for your home a good investment, even on cloudy days.

In fact, the UK receives a similar amount of solar energy as some of the warmer European countries, and the same as Germany, one of the world leading generators of solar power.

How much energy from solar panels can I generate?

A 12-panel solar system could generate enough energy in a year to power a Tesla EV for 17,660 miles of emission-free driving or enable an A++ dishwasher to complete 4,465 loads in that time5

Do I need to get planning permission for solar panels?

Adding solar panels to your home is classed as a "Permitted Development" and therefore, standard solar panel installations do not require planning permission. 

Planning permission should be obtained if your home is a listed building, world heritage site or the installation does not meet standard guidelines. 

Is my roof suitable for solar panels?

Whether your roof faces south, east or west your home is perfect to have solar panels fitted. North facing roofs will not receive as much sunlight and therefore won't be as efficient. 

The pitch of your roof should be between 10o - 60o.

Which is the right solar panel for me?

At E.ON, we offer both on-roof and in-roof solar panels. Our on-roof solar panels are black and fit on top of your roof tiles and have black frames, rather than the standard silver, to ensure the most amount of the sun's energy is soaked up as possible and your roof looks great.

The in-roof panels replace the roof tiles so they sit flush and give a modern and sleek look to your home. 

You can find out more about these solar panels and the packages we offer on our solar panels page.
