Solar PV panels offer a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to generate electricity for residential and commercial buildings. Installed on rooftops, these panels convert daylight into usable electricity, powering appliances, lighting, and even hot water systems within your property.
At the heart of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology lies the ability to transform sunlight into electrical energy. Unlike traditional solar thermal systems, PV panels can generate electricity even on cloudy days, making them highly efficient in utilizing available daylight.
Solar PV panels work by utilizing the photovoltaic effect to convert sunlight into electricity. These panels consist of photovoltaic cells made from a semi-conductive material, commonly silicon. When exposed to daylight, these cells absorb photons emitted by the sun, causing the movement of electrons within the semiconductor material, generating an electric current. Multiple cells are interconnected to form a solar panel, collectively producing sufficient energy to power an entire building.
Investing in a solar PV system not only provides you with free electricity but also presents a lucrative opportunity to generate income. Through the government-operated export tariff scheme, licensed electricity suppliers pay homeowners for each unit (kWh) of electricity their solar system exports to the grid. This scheme runs for an extended period of 20 years, ensuring a steady additional income stream while enjoying the benefits of renewable energy.
In most cases, solar PV installations do not require planning permission unless the property is listed or of historical significance. This is very rare and if planning permission is needed we will help you through your application.
Scaffolding requirements vary depending on the property, but we strive to minimize disruption by erecting and removing the scaffolding within one day of the installation. Our specialists often utilize scaffold towers, allowing for a swift and efficient installation process.
With regards to roofing, the majority of roofs can accommodate solar panels without the need for reinforcement. For flat roofs, we offer specially designed frames set at the optimal angle to capture daylight. Our team conducts a thorough structural survey to ensure your roof’s suitability for installation, leaving you with peace of mind.
Solar PV systems are remarkably low maintenance and come with a comprehensive 25-year warranty, offering long-term reliability and protection. Once installed, there are no running costs involved, and in fact, you are financially rewarded for generating your own electricity through the Feed-In Tariff. To ensure optimal performance, we recommend an annual panel cleaning, which can be easily carried out from the ground using specialized equipment.
If you’re eager to reduce your energy bills and generate your own free electricity, don’t hesitate to reach out to our energy-saving experts. Discover the many benefits of solar PV panels and take a significant step toward a greener and more sustainable future. Contact us now for a consultation.

Thank you everyone at Prime Time Solar for such excellent and very knowledgeable service throughout the whole process of the Solar Panels, from the quote to commissioning the system on installation. I have never received such service like this from any company before, well done and keep up the good work.
The installation was completed within a day and the App setup for us on our phone and time was taken to explain everything to us about the system. very reassuring.
After installation I received an email with a link to their website portal this enabled me to download all the relevant paperwork, from this I was able to sign up to an energy company to sell my excess solar power, shop around as prices vary from 2p kWh to 15p kWh.
I can highly recommend this company to anyone considering having solar panels installed. It’s not very often I say this but I am impressed with this company.
Having had some poor experiences with other companies I was lucky to find Prime Time Solar. Special thanks to Nathan and Conor. Thanks again everyone.
Very professional and reliable service was provided to me with all the work completed in high quality. Peter was flexible in creating PV/ Solar panel unit, meeting to our needs and specifications, the price was competitive as well.
Connor, did a brilliant work in completing the installation. I highly recommend their service with no hesitation. I wish them all the very best.

The team were great to speak to and gave honest advise. The quote was accurate and I didn't have any unprecedented costs. The team were as tidy as possible on the day and were prompt with their timekeeping and communicated throughout the process.
It was a competitive quotation and the work was completed satisfactorily. The reason I gave them a 5star review is that they were the only company (out of 7 quotations) that listened to what I wanted and provided me with as near a match as possible.
The whole installation process was completed and signed off with some very helpful guys doing the work. It turned out that I had room for one more solar panel than was originally planned for and they had no problem in accommodating the change of order.
Also, I raised a slight problem (as I saw it) with two of the panels and their fixings, but I did a bit of DIY and fixed that without any hassle making the changes, or from the engineer- who had the option of objecting, but didn't - and congratulated me on the DIY fix.
I like employing people who listen to common-sense alternatives and don't put obstacles in the way of changing things for the better. I would definitely recommend the solar panel section of this company. I cannot comment on the boiler side, except to say that all contacts were initially made through them, and I found them to be both friendly and helpful.
