FAQ
Getting Started: What You Need to Know

Inaugurated in the UK during the summer of 2023, our platform serves as a conduit connecting homeowners with a network of elite, local energy solution providers that have passed our rigorous assessment. Leveraging our unique technology, we evaluate homes for their energy potential and promptly recommend the most suitable energy solutions, enabling us to present instant quotes.

Our innovative solar evaluation tool, accessible through a simple input of your postcode and address, enhances the user journey for homeowners keen on solar solutions. This tool allows for the generation of accurate project estimates without the necessity of a physical site inspection, streamlining the installation timeline. This efficiency not only promotes the adoption of rooftop solar systems but also plays a significant role in reducing carbon footprints.

Standing as the premier platform for both residential and commercial solar solutions in the UK, we have successfully facilitated over 1,000 solar projects. Our team, based in the UK, comprises skilled engineers, developers, and energy advisors dedicated to making solar energy accessible to every household, advocating for a widespread solar adoption.

The viability of solar energy in the UK often raises eyebrows, given its notoriety for overcast skies. Contrary to common perceptions, the UK is surprisingly well-positioned for solar energy, outpacing many European regions where solar installations are more prevalent.

This counterintuitive reality is partly because solar panels yield better results in cooler climates, and despite the UK's frequent cloudy weather, the efficiency of these panels remains high. Advances in technology over the past decade have significantly enhanced panel efficiency, meaning fewer panels are required now for the same energy output as before. The solar irradiance in the UK is on par with Germany, a leading solar market, making solar a feasible option in the UK.

Solar PV systems transform sunlight into electricity using photovoltaic cells. These installations can lead to substantial savings, approximately 59% on electricity bills, with the investment typically recouping its cost within 7 to 10 years, while the system's lifespan often exceeds 25 years. But what comprises a photovoltaic cell?

These cells consist of silicon layers treated with phosphorus and boron, which produce electrical energy from sunlight through electron mobilization, creating a voltage across the layers. To harness this energy effectively, cells are grouped into modules or panels, aligning the voltage with that of a practical DC system.

The generated DC power is then converted into AC, making it compatible with household appliances, battery storage, or for feeding into the grid.

Typically, both the inverter and battery are installed close to each other, often in a utility room or near the electrical panel, and sometimes in the attic. It's crucial that the installation site for the battery meets specific criteria, including adherence to safety and ventilation standards. The mounting surface must also be capable of supporting the battery's weight, and in some cases, structural reinforcement may be needed to ensure safe installation.

Following the installation of a solar PV system, the final step before activation involves obtaining either a G98 or G99 certificate, which authorizes the system's connection to the grid. These certifications are mandatory, and failure to secure them can result in the system being disconnected from the grid.

The responsibility for applying for these certificates falls on the installer. SUNUTI issues them upon approval based on the installed system:

  • G98 certificate is for systems with an output up to 3.68 kWp and is processed post-installation, receiving automatic approval.
  • G99 certificate applies to systems with an output above 3.68 kWp, requiring submission prior to installation, with approval taking approximately 35-45 working days.

Indeed, we offer options like bird proofing and iboost as part of our solar solutions. Upon assignment of an installer for your project, they will reach out directly to discuss and quote these additional features. It's worth noting that systems equipped with a battery might not require an iboost, as surplus energy is stored within the battery itself.

Our installation process is designed to be minimally intrusive, with scheduling done at your convenience. Scaffolding is set up a few days prior to the installation. On the day, a skilled team of 2-3 technicians will mount the panels on your roof, a process that takes one to two days depending on various factors such as roof size and type. The system is then integrated into your home's electrical setup and activated. Subsequently, your utility provider installs a new meter to track both consumption and the energy fed back into the grid, which is an additional cost.

Solar panels demand minimal maintenance, yet proper care is essential for optimal performance. An annual cleaning with water and a soft brush suffices to keep the panels in prime condition. Should any issues arise, it's imperative to inform us immediately. While we oversee the technical maintenance, you are responsible for ensuring unobstructed sunlight access to the panels, which may involve trimming trees or clearing snow. Avoid using metal tools for snow removal and exercise caution when working at heights.
