PLUG-IN SOLAR KIT COMPONENTS

The Solar Panel
The 4.16kW Plug-in Solar kit is supplied with 13 x 320W MCS certified monocrystalline solar panels. This solar panel has a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty and a 25 year 80% power performance guarantee.

The Enphase Micro-Inverter
This Plug In Solar Kit is supplied with G98 certified Enphase IQ7 Micro-Inverters.  The Micro-Inverters convert direct current (DC) produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) for use in your home.  As such, they form the heart of the Plug-in Solar Kit. The Enphase Micro-Inverter has a 25 year manufacturer guarantee.

The Enphase Envoy S Standard Monitoring Unit
The Enphase Envoy S Standard is an integral component of the Enphase Microinverter System, and is required for all Plug-In Solar Kits over 800W, in order to ensure compliance with the UK’s G98 Regulations.  The Enphase Envoy allows you to monitor each individual solar panel in your installation, via the Enphase Enlighten App.  

The Tile/Slate Roof Mount Kit
The 4.16kW Plug In Solar Kit comes with a simple to install roof mounting kit to allow you to fix to a Garage, shed, house, stable or any other outbuilding with a tiled or slate roof. These are warrantied for 10 years.  Please let us know the type of Tile/Slate you have on your roof at the time of placing an order.

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.

When ordering, please use the Special Instructions box at the checkout to let us know a) the type of roof tiles you will be installing the kit on and b) the layout in which you will be installing the panels. This information will not affect the price, but is important to ensure you are purchasing a suitable kit.

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.

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.
