This Chigwell Solar Panels installation was carried out in February 2012. It provided a 2.79kWp system installed across two roofs  to compliment an existing solar thermal system. We took the opportunity to use black framed REC 245W modules which we installed in two strings of six on both the south and west facing roofs of the property. These solar panels supply a Power One inverter that has twin trackers to maximise energy yield.

About SogoSolar

We are specialists in the design and installation of solar panel systems for domestic and commercial customers in Chigwell, Essex, London and the South East. We know that investing in solar energy remains one of the smartest decisions you could make today. However, we also know that you may have questions or concerns before making the decision.

Looking good

We know many of you are put off solar by its appearance. Here at SogoSolar we specialise in ‘integrated’ solar roofs which offer a much more sympathetic alternative. With ‘In roof’ and ‘integrated’ systems, the solar PV array itself forms the weatherproofing barrier of the roof, and as such, they replace the conventional tiles or slates. Such systems are often specified in locations where planning restrictions preclude the use of traditional framed modules installed ‘above’ the roof.

Designed for you 

At SogoSolar all our systems are bespoke – designed specifically for your property. In addition, we only use components from manufacturers with UK or EU based support teams. This in turn means that we are much better placed to support you, our customer.

Peace of mind 

All our installations come with an insurance-backed 5 year workmanship warranty, plus a comprehensive after care service, which includes monitoring system performance for two years from installation. This has proved a valuable feature for many of our customers, enabling them to monitor the output of individual panels, as well as their overall energy usage.

Money matters

Solar remains a smart financial investment, with over half a million households in the UK taking advantage of the financial benefits possible. Owners of solar PV systems receive a tax-free income for all the extra energy they generate for 20 years from installation. Not only do they earn money, but also save money on their bills when using the energy generated within their property. Plus, installation costs have more than halved over the last few years, and can give returns of between 10% to 12% for domestic installations.
