Hi,
Has anyone had solar roof panels put on their BISF roof?

Solar panels on the back of a BISF house (vent pipe removed or lowered).

Hi, good question as I’ve looked into this. A few years ago I was told that the structure of the roof meant it was not suitable for solar PV. Since then solar has been installed on many BISF houses, so this was obviously not true. Check out Google Street View for examples, here are three next to each other in Shirehampton, Bristol (there are lots more close by): https:[email protected],-2.6850057,3a,75y,324.25h,91.76t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sCaMjmiXmx3hg8U18Mnoozw!2e0

Please note that a BISF roof only has room for 12 normal sized solar panels, giving 3 kW using the most commonly used 250 W panels. However higher efficiency panels of up to 330 W are available from the likes of BenQ which would enable you to get the full 4 kW that is the max. typically allowed on a domestic roof, from only 12 panels. The higher efficiency panels are more expensive of course, but your electricity generation will be higher.
