Solar Panels in London
« on: March 08, 2022, 05:37:16 PM »
I wanted to find out more information about the possibility of using solar panels in my home in London to reduce energy costs and be more sustainable.

I have a garden flat, with a long garden and a garden studio that has a flat roof two areas that solar panels can sit on, one half is about 2.2 by 2.2m and the other about 1.2m by 2.2m. The roof gets sun for most of the day when it isn't cloudy and the the roof is not overshadowed by anything.

The garden studio is supplied it's electricity by an armour flex cable that runs from the distribution board in the flat and into a smaller distribution board in the garden office.

I wanted to know if there is a system that could be used to power the studio alone (would this require severing the cabled connection to the house?), or if there is a system that could be used to provide some electricity to be used within the flat as well. In the studio with have a couple of small electric radiators, lighting, and run hi-fi's and laptops off the plug sockets etc, the flat is a 2bedroom home so has a much higher demand in electricity use.

If anyone has any knowledge or experience of how this can be done that would be amazing, or similarly can recommend any helpful companies that can advise on this that would also be amazing.

I built the studio myself and am very practical, although not an electrician, is this something I could source myself and and install myself to save costs?
