The Solar Landscape in Chichester

Chichester’s Solar Market is on the Rise

In West Sussex, the solar market has been undergoing rapid growth, driven by a surge in environmental responsibility and government support. This trend is marked by a significant increase in solar panel installations in various residential and commercial areas across the city.

Environmental Impact and Solar Panels

Chichester’s progress towards environmental sustainability, marked by the adoption of solar panels, is actively cutting its carbon emissions. This move towards a greener future aligns with the environmental aims of the Chichester District Council where they have pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10% year-on-year until 2025.

Saving Money and Resources

Beyond environmental and sustainability benefits, those in Chichester are increasingly recognising the economic advantages of solar energy. Savings on electricity bills and potential income from excess energy production are key factors driving the adoption of solar panels.

Did You Know?

Chichester has more than 1700 sunlight hours each year making the cathedral city one of best areas for solar power in the UK.

Solar Products

Explore our range of solar products, carefully sourced from reliable manufacturers and fully certified to MCS standards, ensuring optimal performance and reliability. From advanced solar panels that harness sunlight, to cutting-edge battery storage systems, we provide practical solutions that lower costs and promote sustainability.

Solar Panel Maintenance

Solar PV systems are very reliable, but planned solar maintenance is essential to ensure continued high output efficiency. Many solar systems in Chichester have been installed for several years now, some for over 5 years. Whilst most maybe running well, many owners don’t check their systems performance regularly and wouldn’t know if it was performing well or not.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do solar PV cells work?

Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert radiation from the sun into electricity.  A typical PV cell consists of a wafer of semi-conducting material, usually silicon, manufactured with two electrically different layers.  When sunlight hits the cell it excites the electrons within the silicon, creating an electric field across the layers and causing a flow of electricity.

How much electricity do solar PV systems generate?

An optimally orientated, un-shaded 1kWp array will, each year, generate approx 850kWh (units) of electricity.

Are solar panels effective in Chichester's climate?

The UK’s south coast is rated as one of the best areas in the UK for the generation of solar energy, meaning Chichester is absolutely ideal for solar panel installation projects. They generate significant energy even on cloudy days, ensuring a reliable source of renewable energy throughout the year.

How much electricity do solar PV systems generate?

An optimally orientated, un-shaded 1kWp array will, each year, generate approx 850kWh (units) of electricity.

Will solar panels increase the value of my property in Chichester?

Installing solar panels can potentially increase your property’s value in Chichester. Buyers are increasingly seeking energy-efficient homes with lower running costs, making properties with solar installations more attractive in the real estate market.

What size do solar PV panels come in?

PV systems are modular, allowing a great degree of flexibility in design and specification. The physical size of individual panels varies. Smaller output panels tend to be smaller in size and the very high output panels are much larger. The size of an array is determined by the available roof space and energy requirement of the property. We work with our customers to ensure that we provide a system that meets their requirements and available roof space.

Where can I place my solar PV panels?

Solar panels can be mounted in a range of locations, from a roof to the ground and even bespoke frames. We install on a range of roof types, including flat roofs. Ground mounted systems use ballast or specially designed mounting frames. Solar panels are best if they are south facing, but east and west facing roofs are are suitable, although output will be slightly less. A roof pitch of between 10 and 50 degrees is best and preferably with little or no shade. If shade cannot be avoided then we can include optimisers to reduce the shading impact.

Why is shade a problem for solar PV systems?

Any shade, such as from trees or neighbouring buildings, can have a large impact on the performance of a PV system. Because modules are constructed from a number of PV cells interconnected together, if one cell is shaded it has a knock-on effect that prohibits the whole module from generating electricity. To work effectively, we recommend that whole PV array needs to be free from shade for the majority of the day.

Do I need planning permission to install solar panels in Chichester?

Most of the time the answer is no. However, if you live in a protected area such as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a National Park such as the South Downs, then you may need permission, but not always. We can advise you on this.. Some authorities will ask that you have a bat or bird survey first or that your system meets certain aesthetic criteria such as it being an ‘in-roof’ system where the panels sit flush with the roof tiles. We can work with your needs and design a system that meets the necessary criteria. Some new build properties may also have restrictions on what can be installed. In these cases, we recommend that you check with your estate management company.
