We know many of you are put off solar by its appearance. Here as SogoSolar we specialise in ‘integrated’ solar roofs which offer a much more sympathetic alternative. Please see below for more info.
Put off investing in solar due to the ugly nature of conventional framed panels ? We can help. There are now a number of much more sympathetic alternatives at surprisingly modest prices. Today we can even integrate velux windows into a solar array, useful if you are considering a loft conversion.
Integrated systems are solar PV products designed to replace existing roofing materials and they come in three forms: solar tiles, solar slates and laminates. Solar tiles and slates are of similar dimensions to traditional slates or tiles and as such can easily be integrated into a slate or tile roof to provide a solar PV array.
Remarkably, generating electricity for solar is now cheaper than buying it from the grid. For a 4kWp south facing system in southern England electricity from solar costs around 8p/kWh, whereas you will be paying around 14p/kWh from your supplier. And that’s a fact.
Can it get any better? Yes it can. The cost of installing solar has more than halved since the early days in 2011 to between £4,500 – £7,500 depending on the size of system and quality of components.
With support from the government’s feed in tariff your investment will pay back in between 6–10 years. Not having the cash in your pocket is also no longer an obstacle as there are a number of options available if you are looking for solar finance.
There are a range of finance options for renewable energy available for domestic and commercial solar panel installations. These range from personal finance to crowd funding.
For domestic finance for solar panels, we suggest approaching Hitachi Personal Finance who provide an Environmental Loan for funding for solar and other renewables and if you are re-mortgaging for any reason try the Ecological Building Society.
Commercial funding is available via a number of lenders, specifically supporting investment in renewables, including Siemens Financial Services and Lombard Finance. In addition to these more traditional financing options, crowd funding has surged in popularity in recent years.

As part of a major refurbishment of a property in Hounslow we installed 16 panels across the east, south and west pitches of this property. Given the multiple pitches used we installed the Solar Edge inverter system which is ideally…
In May we installed our first integrated solar PV array using 4mm glass laminates from UK manufacturer GBSol. The first stage of the installation is the fixing of the aluminium framework to the roof which is fabricated with a rebate…
