Is my roof suitable for Solar Panel?

Southerly-facing roofs with little to no shade and enough space to fit a solar panel system are ideal for installing solar.

The size of your solar energy system will depend on how much electricity you use on a monthly basis, as well as the weather conditions where you live and the size and direction of your roof. Take a look at your past electricity bills and compare offers from licensed, pre-screened solar installers to determine the best system size for your needs. Unlimited Solar advisors are highly qualified to carry out the analysis for you to optimise the size of solar system required for your property.
