'In roof' solar panels are mounted into custom made trays and flashings, which are fitted directly onto the roof timbers before the roof tiling is done.
The solar panels are then connected to an inverter (converts DC electricity form the solar panels to AC) and from there a single AC cable runs to your fuse box / consumer unit via isolator switches and a generation meter.
The advantages of solar
In all other respect, 'in roof' and 'on roof' solar are the same but in roof provides the following advantages;
1. Very attractive, particularly if a dark roof tile is used.
2. Reduces the number of tiles needed for the property, therefore reduces this element of cost
3. Custom flashings ensure a fully weather tight finish is provided
4. The completed system can be electric vehicle ready, if requested
Typical costs for a 2.7kw In Roof solar system including design, materials, installation, scaffolding, commissioning and certification is £4000 inc 5%.
