How do I know if my roof is suitable?

If your roof is predominately south facing – i.e. from South East to South West and with a reasonable angle of pitch (15° to 35° is ideal) then your roof has excellent potential.

If your roof is predominately North, then we will be unable to achieve the output required and will not be able to proceed.
