Solar PV for your commercial property: what our customers ask

Here’s just some of the questions that our customers ask – we’re sure you’ll have others. Please give us a call and we will be very happy to help.

Can I use solar with a heat pump?

Absolutely. Many more households are opting to be as environmentally responsible as possible and it is possible to use the power generated from your solar PV to run heat pumps and other renewable energy systems.

Do I need planning permission for a solar panel?

Most installations do not need specific permission, but it is always worth running the required checks. Our specialist engineers are on hand to offer advice on all areas of installation.

Do you include a warranty?

Not all solar panels are the same. At DPL, we will only use modules that meet the Tier 1 criteria. That is to say that they have a minimum 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee on product material and workmanship, and a 25 year Linear Power output performance warranty.

How do solar panels work?

A solar panel is made from lots of cells, laid out in a grid. When the sun shines on it, silicon within the cells creates an electrical current, which the system converts into electricity which can be used within the house to power your appliances.

Where’s the best place for a solar panel?

As you’d expect, a south facing roof is the ideal location for a solar panel as it will collect the most sunlight. It’s worth focusing your efforts here, with complementary panels on East or West facing areas to maximise the electricity that you can produce.

What are the warranties?

The manufacturer’s warranty on the inverter is at least 5 years and for systems with batteries, the batteries we recommend are warrantied for 10 years.

What warranty is on the solar panels (modules)?

Not all solar panels are the same. At DPL, we will only use panels that exceed the Tier 1 criteria. The Tier 1 criteria is that panels must have a minimum 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee on product material and a 25 year Linear Power output performance warranty. We import our own panels which have a 12 year manufacturer’s product material warranty and a 30 year linear performance warranty.

What else will DPL provide as part of my Solar PV solution?

We guarantee to:

  • Fit bird guards around the solar arrays (where appropriate) to prevent the likelihood of birds nesting under the panels.
  • Provide a full ‘turn-key’ solution, covering assessment, design, installation and maintenance, all delivered by a dedicated team.
  • Advise and where appropriate, recommend battery storage solutions which may be integrated into the system design.
  • Deliver your installation using our local team, based in East Anglia.
