What is Domestic PV?
Domestic PV, short for Photovoltaic, refers to the technology that converts sunlight into electricity using solar panels. These systems are designed for residential use, allowing homeowners to generate their electricity and significantly decrease their reliance on conventional energy sources.
The benefits of installing a Solar PV System:
- Economic Savings
- Environmentally Friendly
- Energy Independence
- Government Incentives
- Tax-Free income from the Smart Export Guarantee*
*In order to qualify for this scheme, your solar system must be installed by an accredited MCS installer such as Solar Select.
At Solar Select, we offer a range of services to help you harness the power of the sun. Our engineers have extensive experience installing solar panels and we arrange the extras, such as scaffolding ensuring the correct access.
We ensure that our schemes include:
- 10-Year Inverter Warranty

Explore the Efficiency and Aesthetics of Solar Select’s In-Roof Solar Systems
Our solar panels seamlessly replace roofing materials, creating a visually pleasing and cohesive look.
These roof-integrated solar panels capture sunlight, transforming it into electricity to power your home, allowing you to enjoy reduced energy bills while contributing to a sustainable future.
The Allure of In-Roof Solar
In-roof systems are certainly aesthetically pleasing, homeowners can say goodbye to bulky panels as the system blends seamlessly with roofs, adding curb appeal. Being virtually maintenance-free, they provide exceptional convenience.
In-roof solar panels are often referred to as Integrated solar panels. These panels (which are the same as traditional panels) are integrated directly into the roof, literally replacing a section of your roof with no tiles underneath. Integrated solar panels are designed to be weatherproof and as strong as normal roof tiles but also include photovoltaic cells to generate electricity for your home.
On-roof solar panels can have a reputation for being bulky and not particularly aesthetically pleasing as they require the installation of mounts and clamps to hold up the panels. Even though more recent models are far more streamlined in design, in-roof solar panels go one step further. As they’re installed as part of the roof’s structure, they sit flush with the roof tiles and blend in seamlessly. These systems are arguably a more attractive option than on-roof panels which could be a benefit to your home in the future.
Contact us for a free consultation, where our experts will evaluate your roofing needs and provide valuable insights. We’ll design a personalised solar solution that seamlessly integrates with your roof.
Solar PV Bird Guard: Protecting Clean Energy and Wildlife
As homeowners increasingly turn to solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to harness renewable energy, the interaction between these installations and local wildlife has become a pressing concern.
Bird collisions and nesting can pose risks to both avian species and the efficiency of solar panels. To address this issue, the residential solar PV bird guard has emerged as an innovative solution.
Solar PV bird guards are specifically designed to safeguard solar panels without compromising their functionality. These systems typically consist of a mesh or netting structure installed around the perimeter of the solar array. Their primary purpose is to prevent birds and small mammals from accessing the areas beneath solar panels, which are often used as nesting sites.
The benefits of using a bird guard for residential solar PV systems are twofold. Firstly, they reduce the likelihood of bird-related damage to solar panels. Birds typically try and build nests under the panels, leading to debris accumulation, blockages, damaged cables and even scratching or soiling of the PV surfaces. By keeping birds and other animals out, the bird guard preserves the efficiency and longevity of the solar installation.
Secondly, bird guards contribute to conservation efforts. Bird collisions with solar panels are often due to them mistaking them for the open sky have been a significant and worrying issue as these accidents can result in injuries or fatalities to local bird populations.
Installing bird guards helps mitigate these collisions, supporting a healthier coexistence of solar energy production and wildlife.
It’s important to note that not all birdguards are created equally and their effectiveness may vary. At Solar Select, we carefully select products that are durable, easy to maintain, and tailored to the specific configuration of your solar panels.
