What kind of permissions do I need to obtain to install solar panels?
Permits prior to the installation of solar panels:
AIl installation system design access and connection permission (Otovo do this)
Building regulations (Otovo do this with installer)
Planning permission (only if your property is located in a conservation area, or if your property has listed status from relevant authorities - please check with your local council; or if you have a flat roof).
Paperwork and procedures after the installation of solar panels:
Completion certificate (this is submitted and obtained by the installer/Otovo).
Initial inspection and periodic inspections (up to customer to maintain after the Otovo warranty ends after 5 years).
MCS certificate (Otovo will obtain this for the customer).
Export and utilizing certain subsidies like Smart Export Guarantee (Otovo will support the customer through the process, but, ultimately, it falls down on the customer to go through the process and sign the agreement with the electricity provider he chooses).
At Otovo we will take care of making all the necessary inquiries and requesting all the necessary permits to carry out the photovoltaic installation. If you have questions, you are always welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
