Sunstation Solar Panels from Solarcentury
Solar panels from Solarcentury are named Sunstation and have been designed to not only lower our reliance on energy from the National Grid but also to look great in the process! Solarcentury recognise that no homeowner wants to add an eyesore to their roof so have designed their solar panels to blend in as seamlessly as possible.
Sunstation panels have been designed to be compatible with a wide range of roof tiles so you shouldn’t need to adapt your roof to accommodate them. The panels themselves are black and installed with hidden framework so they sit ‘flush’ with the roof. They have undergone extreme weather testing so you can rest assured you’re receiving a high quality addition to your home. With just 8 components to the system, the installation should be complete in a single day.

Why choose Solarcentury for your solar energy system?
In addition to their nearly 20 years of expertise and excellent reputation, Solarcentury are a brand with real dedication to their environmental responsibility.
The company is and always has been committed to making solar power as accessible as possible on a global basis. While they began with domestic, rooftop installations, today they regard themselves as an “international utility-scale solar developer” striving to make “a positive difference in the fight against climate change”.
In support of this social conscience the company founded an international development charity, SolarAid, with the goal of eliminating toxic, dangerous and costly kerosene lamps from Africa by replacing them with lamps which use free, clean solar energy to give light.
Solarcentury has installed 1GWp of solar across more than 1000 sites in four continents. As of 2017 they have offices in seven countries (in addition to UK Headquarters) with over 150 professionals led by senior executives with extensive experience in the renewable energy and power sector.
