Stockport Solar Panel Installers
Despite being located just six miles south of the notoriously rainy city of Manchester, solar power in Stockport is proving very popular.
Even local primary schools are getting on the act with Bredbury Green Primary School having installed new solar panels this year in a bid to generate over 3,300 KWH of energy annually. SHINE, who run the Stockport housing stock, estimate that installing solar panels on their homes will save each household around a third on their electricity bill each year.
Stockport Solar Conditions
The average amount of solar radiation that reaches Stockport has been calculated over a 22 year period by NASA. In the winter months, it averages less than one KWH per square meter. However, this quickly increases after the end of January, and by May it reaches over four KWH per square meter. This equates to between five to six sun hours per day for around half the year.
This is more than sufficient for solar panel installers in Stockport to be able to utilise their panels for most of the year. However, because of its northerly latitude, some people who install solar panels in Stockport do opt to include trackers in their installation.
