Not only does Solar PV increase the BER rating of a home it also helps the housebuilder comply with Part L building regulations. All new builds from 2008 must install some form of renewable energy and Solar PV should be considered in the design stages as a fundamental requirement in the development of a dwelling.

Some things to consider when if in installing solar pv in a new build;
A southern orientation is ideal
East and west facing roofs can still capture over 80% of the energy
Minimize roof obstructions to maximize PV capacity and aesthetics
Shading can significantly reduce energy production
Plan for current and future landscaping, neighboring houses and roof “stick-ups”
Approx 100 sq. ft. of roof for every kW of PV capacity
A pitch of 30 degrees is the optimum
