NFRC Qualified To Install Solar Frames And Panels

Our staff are all qualified through the National Federation of Roofing Contractors to install the solar frames and panels using the purpose made fittings. It is a MCS requirement to be competent in their installation to qualify for the feed in tariff from the government. This includes all installers having safe working at height and manual handling awareness. Due to the high number of installations being carried out incorrectly we also offer a service to repair or maintain your roof damaged by poor workmanship during the installation process.

We not only work with the photovoltaic panels for the supply of electricity but also the photo thermal which heats your water.

New developments may have to install renewable energy as part of the planning permission. It will also be part of the proposed Green deal for sustainability in roofing which is planned for October 2012. For the current feed in tariff and further up-to-date information about solar energy legislation please visit Solar power: Directgov РEnvironment and greener living
