Yate is located in one of the sunniest parts of Great Britain, making it one of the best places in the UK to install solar panels. With multiple solar farms in the area, a variety of city council efforts, including the installation of solar farms which cover more than 8 acres of land, the area is very solar friendly, and increasingly providing more of its own power with solar.
Installing your own solar panels means finding a good Yate solar panel installer, but you should first determine whether your home, business, or area is suitable for solar panels.
How the Weather in Yate Affects Your Solar Panels
With an average of 1,541 to 1,885 hours of sunlight per year, Yate averages as much as 40% more sunlight than the UK norm, making it an excellent place to install solar panels. With normal hours of sun ranging between 4 and 6 hours per day in the months with the least sun, and averaging at more than twice that in the summer, and relatively low amounts of rain, solar installations in Yate can collect more power, and therefore pay themselves off more quickly. With the average solar installation paying itself off between 5 and 7 years for a domestic installation, and less than 10 for most commercial installations, installing panels in the area is a good investment, both in terms of returns, and providing eco-power.
However, despite Yate’s generally very sunny skies, it is still important to ensure that your building or area is suitable for solar panels. Steps including checking to make sure you get at least two hours of sun exposure on your roof per day, getting an ECP inspection, and planning any modifications to the area to maximize solar exposure are important to ensure that you collect the most power, and that you qualify for the best FIT rates.
