What are the benefits of installing Solar Photovoltaic (PV)?

  • Lower electricity bills
  • Sell excess energy back to the grid using the Smart Export Guarantee
  • Store excess electricity
  • Cut your carbon footprint
  • Low maintenance
  • Invest in the future and reduce your reliance on the National Grid

As an MCS accredited solar panel installer we can advise you on the very best solar solution for your home or business. With a solar panel installation you can start to reap the rewards of generating your own renewable electricity. Plus all of our works are backed by RECC, the Renewable Energy Consumer Code.

Solar power is one of the world’s fastest growing sources of renewable energy and we ensure your solar panels are installed to the highest standards. You can use Solar Panels to generate green electricity from sunlight. Nearly a million homes across the country already benefit from
clean, affordable solar power.

Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) modules absorb and convert sunlight into electricity and they don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day.

Solar PV modules are supplied as a sealed unit with a specific voltage and wattage rating. In order to provide electricity for a building Solar PV modules have to be combined in a system with other components (including an inverter, wiring and roof mounting kit).

Our customers are increasingly choosing to complement their Solar installation with a battery storage solution, improving self-sufficiency by capturing surplus electricity and saving it, so it can be used later.

We will design a bespoke system to fit your property and make the most of the access to sunlight specific to your property and its location.

Once you express an interest, we will get in touch to book a survey to help you decide the best solar options for you and give you a personalised quote. The survey can be carried out in your home, over the phone or online.

If you agree to go ahead with the quote, we’ll then get in contact to arrange installation and tell you the next steps (including when the scaffolding will be put up).

Once the scaffolding has been put up, giving our our installers safe access to your roof, the install mounts – which the solar panels will be attached to – are fitted and attached to the rafters. Most installations are completed within a day but some larger jobs will take a little longer. We can let you know once we know the size of the system you need. We’ll put your scaffolding up a few days before your solar installation and take it down a few days after and we’ll always make sure we leave your property clean and tidy.

When the solar panels have been secured to the frame and wired in, the inverter is installed and connected to the battery (if chosen) and the grid input. The inverter is what transforms energy from the solar panels into electricity your home can use.

Once your solar panel installation is complete, the whole system is connected to a consumer unit, usually adjacent to your existing fuse box. We will ensure all the cabling is neatly fitted with a black or white conduit to suit your home.

We’ll put your scaffolding up a few days before your solar installation and take it down a few days after and we’ll always make sure we leave your property clean and tidy.

Maintaining a Solar PV system

Solar PV systems are low maintenance – you just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don’t create too much shade.

ollowing installation we will leave written details of any maintenance checks that you should carry out from time to time to ensure everything is working properly, including details of the main inverter fault signals and key trouble-shooting guidance.

Adding Battery Storage can make your home 80% self-sufficient. FIND OUT MORE

Leaping Hare Electrical installed solar panels on our property in Sheringham. Communication and customer service from both Katharine and Matthew was excellent. Any questions regarding the quote and the technology were answered promptly. Matthew's attention to detail was evident from day one of the installation and consideration was given throughout to our requests and to the property. The installation started on the agreed date and Matthew ensured that everything progressed smoothly. Our property was left tidy and clean and we are very happy with both the end result and the service we received from Leaping Hare Electrical. We highly recommend that you give them a call.

From the quote through to completing the job Matthew was the most polite and professional electrician we've ever used. The quality of his work is impeccable and he even identified and fixed problems that other electricians had missed. Thank you Matthew.
Matthew is an excellent electrician. He has helpful ideas, is incredibly patient and solution focused, and understands that how it looks and the finish matters. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
