Not all solar panel systems have to be installed on traditional pitched roofs, as one of our more recent jobs shows.

This impressive modular system was installed on a client’s home in Banchory Devenick, where there was insufficient space for a ground mount structure. The large, flat roof space of the house was perfect for this design and layout, which can be upscaled to any size.

The flat roof option can be used on any property where the more commonly used pitched roof panel mounting is not possible or space is limited. It is not fixed to the roof itself, so there are no holes; instead, the system is weighted down, and calculations are done to ensure it doesn’t move, even during storm force winds.

The family has already reaped the benefits of their new solar system, which includes a storage battery. With a couple of electric vehicles, they can now charge for free as well as vastly reducing household energy bills and have been saving money from the moment it was switched on.

They said: “We are delighted and impressed with the install by i-Protech. From the initial meeting, they were helpful and professional in their approach, and were able to offer us a solution for our flat roof. We are already enjoying the benefits of the solar system and feel we are doing our bit for the environment.”

Award-winning i-Protech is one of the North-east’s leading specialist designers and installers of Green Energy products, for both domestic and commercial clients. In 2023, i-Protech became the region’s first installer of modern solar energy systems to achieve dual accreditation with both MCS solar and battery storage systems
