Harrogate Solar Panels
Based in North Yorkshire on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Harrogate has a mild and dry climate similar to many places in the rain shadow of the Pennines. It is also set on a high altitude averaging 100 - 200 metres above sea level. This means that despite its northerly location, the town enjoys an average of 1,334 sun hours per year, which is only twenty below the UK average of 1,356.
Harrogate also benefits from a higher than average number of dry days with rainfall being 883 mls per year - significantly below the UK average of 1,236 mls. With this being the case, Harrogate is well suited to the installation of domestic or commercial solar systems.
