Our Ascot Solar glass roofing panels feature integrated solar technology, enabling you to create renewable energy whilst keeping a sleek look to your canopy roof. They are a high-performance, cost-effective alternative to regular glazing panels which allow you to generate electricity for your building and an income if you become part of the government's Feed in Tariff scheme. And compared to traditional solar PV panels they are transparent, allowing light through and giving a much more aestheticaly pleasing look to a finished canopy.
These glass solar panels are ideal for many organisations particularly schools, supermarkets and environmentally conscious businesses.
The Ascot Solar upgrade can be fitted as an alternative roofing option on many of our Mono-pitch canopies including:

The Feed In Tariff scheme is a Government programme to promote the uptake of renewable energy technology. As a result of the Feed in Tariff scheme the canopy can pay for itself and also generate an income.
Installing a solar canopy means that not only will you be helping the environment, you may be eligible to receive money from your energy supplier due to the government’s Feed-In Tariff scheme (FIT).
You will be paid for simply generating electricity even if you use it. You can export electricity to the grid and get paid a further tariff or you could choose to use it yourself and save on your own electricity bills.
It is not the government that pays you the FITs payment but your energy supplier –please be aware that at the moment only the biggest six main energy suppliers are required to provide these payments by law. Smaller energy suppliers may not offer FIT’s payments- they can opt in to offer them however it is not required by law, please check with your energy provider as to whether they provide the FiT payments.
If you are eligible to receive FITs you will receive three financial benefits:
Generation tariff – Once you have registered your solar system, your energy supplier will pay you a set rate for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you generate. The tariff levels are guaranteed for the period of the tariff (up to 25 years) and are index-linked. A full list of the generation tariffs can be found in the FIT payment rates published by the Government.
Export tariff – If you generate energy that you do not need to use you can export it to the grid. You will then be paid for exporting the electricity as a additional payment on top on your generation tariff.
Energy bill savings – You will save money on your electricity bills as you will not be importing as much electricity from your supplier and you will be using the energy you create free of charge.
