Is my home suitable for a solar panel system?

For your solar panel system to work effectively, the ideal roof is south-facing and unshaded, particularly from other trees or buildings. There needs to be approximately 25 square metres of clear roof space. The system charges in daylight and not just in sunshine, as often thought. Surprisingly, a solar system in Ireland will produce the equivalent of 70% of what it would generate in the Mediterranean, so we just put up extra panels to reach the level of generation you need.
