Linlithgow

Linlithgow is a royal burgh in West Lothian, Scotland. It is West Lothian's county town, as seen in the county's alternate name of Linlithgowshire. Linlithgow lies in the north-east of West Lothian, alongside the border with Stirlingshire. It lies 20 miles (30 kilometres) west of Edinburgh along the main train route to Glasgow. Previous to the development of the M8 and M9 motorways, together with the introduction of the Forth Road Bridge, the town was located on the primary road from Edinburgh to Stirling, Perth and Inverness while the canal system connected the burgh to Edinburgh and Glasgow. The local town of Blackness at one time served as the burgh's port. Linlithgow is looked down by its nearby hill, Cockleroi. An ancient town, it lies south of its 2 most prominent landmarks: Linlithgow Palace and Linlithgow Loch, and north of the Union Canal. With Saint Michael as the partron saint, the town's adage is 'St. Michael is kinde to straingers'. A statue of the saint holding the burgh insignia stands on the high street. Two big tracts of the northern side of the High Street were knocked down in the 1960s and replaced by flats and public structures in the brutalist style typical of that time period of time. Despite the fact that these buildings were welcomed at the time as being a large improvement on the cramped and run-down traditional accommodation, they have necessitated substantial maintenance and renovation over the years. With a population of around 19000, the town is incredibly popular with the middles classes and commuters as a result of efficient transport links and high quality education. For all your house upgrades, make certain to make use of trustworthy specialists in Linlithgow to make certain of quality.

FAQs

do you need planning permission for solar panels?

In a similar way to other major home improvement projects, some specific requirements must be met to allow for the installation of solar panels. The main reason why these standards and regulations were established is to minimize the risk of the solar system becoming an issue or potential hazard in the unforeseeable future. So if you’re thinking about buying and fitting new solar panels, you’ll probably want to know whether or not you’ll require to submit a planning permission application for approval before you can proceed.

Generally, solar panels are covered under what’s called “Permitted Development” which gives you the freedom to install your solar panels without having to apply for a planning permission. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. These exceptions include if your house is a listed building or if your house is located within a conservation area. In these exceptional cases, it’s possible that you’ll need to apply for a planning permission, but this will largely depend on the discretion of your Local Planning Authority. What’s more? Solar panels are usually subjected to normal building regulations which includes examining the roof to make sure that it can support the additional weight. You can call in a MCS certified installer to carry out this check for you.

In order to install your solar PV on your roof, you must follow these guidelines:

✓ Your solar panels shouldn’t go beyond the highest point of the roof (excluding chimneys).

✓ The solar panels shouldn’t project beyond 200mm off the roof’s edge.

✓ The solar panels should be removed once they’re no longer used to produce electricity

✓ The solar panels should be installed such that the area and building’s appearance change is minimized.

What are the main benefits of solar panels?

Solar panels provide an alternative to paying expensive National Grid energy rates, so primarily their first major benefit is helping to reduce bills. Solar PV panels will produce free electricity, whilst solar thermal panels generate heat for hot water and space heating. There are also payment incentives known as the Feed-in Tariff scheme (FITs) (for solar PV) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (for solar thermal) which guarantee a tax-free income for 20 years.

how much energy does a solar panel produce?

If you’re looking to purchase and install a solar system for your home or property, then knowing the amount of energy a solar panel can produce can go a long way to help you determine just how much solar panels that’ll be needed to power your entire house. In this article, we’ll give you an idea of the amount of energy that can be generated by a solar panel to help you make informed decisions going ahead.

First and foremost, you should note that each and every solar panel is rated by how much direct current power they’re able to generate under standard testing conditions. The output of a solar panel is given in watts units (W) and it stands for the theoretical power generation of the panel under direct sunlight as well as temperature conditions. Generally, several domestic solar panels possesses power output ratings which ranges from 250 watts to 400 watts. And as you would have expected, the higher power ratings are preferable when compared to the lower power ratings. What’s more? The total wattage of your solar panels will greatly influence a major part of your overall solar system cost.

Assuming you’re able to get just about 5 hours of direct sunlight every day, you can determine the output of your solar panel in this way - 5 hours x 290 watts ( wattage example of a premium solar panel) = 1450 watts-hours or approximately 1.5 kilowatts per hour (kWh). hence, the individual solar panel output in your array should be able to generate about 500 to 550 kWh of energy every year. This is sufficient energy to power some small appliances without problems.

How much can I save on my electricity bill?

The more you’re at home during the day, the more you can save on your electricity bill, since solar panels generate electricity during the day. The Feed-in Tariff scheme (FITs) ended in March 2019, but the new Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) pays you, via your energy supplier, for the electricity you export back to the grid. With the savings involved in generating your own electricity and SEG payments, you can expect to save up to £390 per year on your electricity bill.
