Chester Solar Panels
Resting on the Cheshire plain, Chester has a temperate climate, averaging over 5 sun hours a day from April to the end of August. The level of solar radiation in Chester is at its lowest during December and January at around 200 kWh per meter squared.
However, it quickly increases and from March onwards it reaches over 800 kWh per squared meter, peaking in high summer at 1299 kWh per meter squared. These conditions are well suited to installing solar panel systems and, for that reason, solar power is an accepted part of the local council's sustainable development planning policy.
