Most websites with such free solar offers will have an initial checker that pre-qualifies your home. This will usually start with you entering your postcode to locate your house on a map. You are then able to identify your home on this map, you may also be able to add other specific details such as roof size and roof angle.
At this point the provider may be able to determine whether or not your property is suitable for solar panels. In general your home needs to be south facing, you need to own your home and there should be no shading on your roof from trees or other tall buildings.
A further visit from the installer will confirm your homes suitability and determine the size of the solar array that can be installed on your roof. Every company will have different sized systems that they can install so will choose one that will make maximum use of your available roof space.
Should your property qualify for one of the free solar installations you will sign a contract agreeing to have the panels installed. This is a long term commitment that will last 25 years. The panels will have to remain on your home even if you move and so would be taken on by the new owner. You can find out more about selling a house with solar panels installed.
