Configurator

Estimates couldn’t be simpler, with our configurator it’s easy to build an array of panels. Just fill in the grid to place the panels in position and the system works out which flashing kits are needed to install the array, and produces a price broken down by plot or combined into a single list. The configurator also calculates the kWp output, so you can easily achieve the correct size and performance of system. It shows the flashing kit required by colour and when the boxes are delivered they are marked in the same way, so the you’ll know exactly which kits go where, making installation quick and easy.
