MCS requires that installers assess the structure that the solar PV panels and or batteries will be installed on. Solar Partner uses a design program to assess whether the structure is suitable to withstand the additional loads. The assessment includes -
In the event the structure is not of standard construction, Solar Partner will arrange for the structure to be assessed by a independent structural engineer. This is very important for the structural integrity of the building/roof, but also to ensure Building Control Approvals can be obtained. Building Control Approval will be required in the event the building / structure is sold.
