Solar Panels on Outbuildings: Everything You Need to Know

Are you considering installing solar panels on your outbuildings? Whether it’s a barn, shed or garage, harnessing solar energy can provide numerous benefits for your property.

At Sunlit Solar in Somerset, we’re here to guide you through everything you need to know about installing solar panels on outbuildings.

  1. Maximizing Space: Outbuildings often have ample roof space that is ideal for solar panel installation. By utilising this space, you can maximise your solar energy production without impacting the aesthetics or functionality of your primary residence.
  2. Energy Independence: Solar panels on outbuildings can help reduce your dependence on the grid, providing a reliable source of renewable energy for your property. This can lead to lower energy bills and greater energy independence, especially for off-grid properties or those with limited access to traditional utilities.
  3. Environmental Benefits: Switching to solar energy reduces your carbon footprint and helps combat climate change. By generating clean, renewable energy from the sun, you’re contributing to a more sustainable future for Somerset and beyond.
  4. Increased Property Value: Solar panels are a valuable investment that can increase the resale value of your property. Potential buyers are increasingly interested in homes with solar energy systems, making your property more attractive on the market.
  5. Regulatory Considerations: Before installing solar panels on outbuildings, it’s essential to check local regulations and building codes. Permits may be required, and there may be restrictions on the size and placement of solar panel arrays. Our team at Sunlit Solar can help navigate these regulatory considerations to ensure compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
  6. System Design and Installation: Solar panel systems for outbuildings require careful design and installation to optimise energy production and performance. Our experienced team at Sunlit Solar specialises in designing custom solar solutions tailored to your specific needs and property characteristics. From system sizing to equipment selection and installation, we’re here to ensure a seamless and efficient process from start to finish.
  7. Maintenance and Monitoring: Once your solar panels are installed, regular maintenance and monitoring are essential to ensure optimal performance. This includes cleaning panels, checking for debris and monitoring energy production. Our team can provide guidance on maintenance best practices and offer monitoring services to track your system’s performance over time.
