We have had quotes for installing solar panels on our roof in Rainham Kent. We have two choices, the lower extension roof or the upper original house roof.
Installing solar panels on the lower roof would be cheaper as the access is much easier than the scaffolding needed for the upper roof. However we have checked the roof at different times of the day and the shading and sun levels are significantly different for the two roofs.
Sun on both roofs first thing in the morning but slight shading on the lower roof to the right hand side

Panels are now ordered so check back for progress reports on how they are doing!
