Installing solar panels on your home or business is a decision that can make a great deal of economic sense, especially in sunny Filton. The city’s proximity to Bristol, one of the greenest cities in the UK, is also beneficial, because it means there are plenty of local Filton solar panel installers to choose from.
In fact, with multiple large commercial installations and plenty of domestic installations already in place, as well as several local solar farms, local installers are highly experienced. Getting solar panels on your home or business is mostly matter of getting a permit, an EPC inspection, and choosing the right Filton solar panel installer to do the work.
Why Filton’s Weather is Great for Solar Panels
While Filton may get a lot of rain and a lot of clouds, the area also gets a great deal of sunshine. In fact, the entire Bristol area is one of the sunniest in the UK, with an average of 1,541–1,885 hours of sunshine per year, which is considerably above the average 1,495 hours of sunshine seen by the rest of the country, and therefore an excellent fit for collecting PV power. Filton’s temperament climate also means warm weather, and a lot of ambient light, so solar panels continue to collect energy, even when the sun isn’t out.
Filton’s great climate is one of the reasons there are so many local solar farms. The nearby farm in Trench Lane, Bradley Stoke is just one of more than a dozen local solar farms, which generate power that feeds back into the grid.
