Deliveries that require a delivery vehicle smaller than a Rigid Artic may incur a delivery surcharge, if you have restrictions with access to your property, low hanging trees or any other issues that may be relevant, please contact Roof Giant to discuss delivery before placing an order.

Why choose Plug In Solar?

With standard Solar PV kits, electricity generation is dependent on the panel that is performing the worst. These types of systems will not perform well with panels that are oriented in multiple directions or if panel shading is an issue. Plug-In Solar Kits use Micro-Inverters to take full advantage of the production capability of each individual solar panel, regardless of shade or orientation to the sun. This ensures each panel can produce the maximum power and is not affected by the performance of any other panel in the array. The Plug-In Solar System is flexible, and modular so you can design a kit to fit your current budget and energy needs, and expand it later as you wish. The system is completely modular, meaning if you want to add more panels, or a solar battery, this can be simply achieved.

PLEASE NOTE: Deliveries that require a delivery vehicle smaller than a Rigid Artic may incur a delivery surcharge. Vehicles are 18T, around the same size as a bin lorry.  Any restrictions please call to advise. If you have restrictions with access to your property, low hanging trees or any other issues that may be relevant, please contact Roof Giant to discuss delivery before placing an order.

IMPORTANT: Due to the current availability issues with kit items, sometimes a delivery may need to be split. The first delivery will be free, but subsequent deliveries will be charged for. The supplier will quote individually for these deliveries, depending on what they contain.

If the courier attempts to deliver a Solar Kit, but is unable to contact anyone on the phone number/s supplied by the customer, the delivery will have to be rescheduled.  No deliveries can be left without a signature.

Please be aware that due to the size and fragility of the shipments, the courier’s charge a re-delivery fee of £95 + VAT, which the customer will be responsible for.

Bespoke Quotes: If a bespoke quote is required, the lead time will be between 7 - 10 days.

Can I plug the kits into a socket?

These kits MUST NOT be plugged into a socket. The final connection to the grid must be made by a qualified electrician using the appropriate RCD/RCBO. Once the connection is made to the grid, the energy will be available to all appliances that are connected to the same Mains Consumer Unit (MPAN).

Why should I choose Plug-In Solar systems?

They provide an initial low-cost investment, can be installed yourself, and require no EPC inspections.

How do I choose the right kit for me?

Firstly, you'll need to decide how much electricity you want to generate from your kit. If you work out how much you currently use and what percentage of that you want to generate from solar, you'll be able to match those requirements against the right kit.

Secondly, you'll need to know the size of the area you want to install your kit. This will determine how many panels you can fit in.

You'll also need to consider your budget - a lower budget means you can install less panels. But as the system is modular, you could always add more panels at a later date.

Do I need planning permission?

The majority of systems will not need planning permission, unless the building is listed or in an AONB. However, it is worth checking with your local council to make sure.

Will there be a VAT reduction on installation for solar panels from 5% to 0% as announced by the chancellor from 1st April 2022?

The chancellor announced that from the 1st April there will be a VAT reduction on installed Solar Panels down from 5% to 0% VAT.

The VAT drop is not something that affects our prices as we (Roofgiant) are supply only. The VAT is on the cost of the installation of solar panels not the supply.

You can see more information on the Government Website related to this here: https://www.gov.uk/tax-on-shopping/energy-saving-products

This VAT reduction does not affect any solar panels we sell and we have to charge 20% VAT on these products.
