Solar PV, Electrical & Roofing Services

As you might expect with our beginings and roots still firmly planted in solar power generation, we look at power differently. As well as anything and everything to do with solar power including roofing, system design, installations, testing, repairs and maintenance; we also carry out a range of residential and commercial electrical work where the focus is either on self-generation of power, continuity of power and or managing power usage.

Solar Testing

Solar Power System Repairs

Problems with your solar power system? Solar panels not working? Inverter Fault? Meter not moving? Established in 2007, we are one of the longest serving renewable energy companies around and experts at fixing all things Solar.

If you have an issue, any issue with your solar PV system and are currently without an installer then we can help. This includes anything electrical, testing, fault finding, repairs and replacements to/for cables, isolators, meters, inverters, batteries and connectors; anything involved with the day to day electrical maintenance and repair of solar PV systems of any size.

Solar Repairs

Solar Panel Bird Guard Installation

Everyone, apart from squirrels and pigeons it seems, knows that living under a solar PV system or chewing on high voltage DC cables is a ridiculous and very dangerous thing to do. However, it happens, either a bunch of pigeons or other birds move in and make their nests under the panels or squirrels get under there and chew the cables.

The way we deal with situations like this involves getting on the roof, repairing any damage, electrical testing, cleaning everything up and reinstating the system after securing wire mesh around the PV array so creatures can't get under there again.

Solar Inverter Replacements

If you have a faulty inverter, we offer an efficient, value for money, hassle free inverter replacement service. We offer good advice and install quality equipment with comprehensive warranty and support options. We will test the rest of the system as part of the service, take care of all hardware deliveries, record your new unit's serial number and confirm the warranty details with the manufacturer.

Our engineers work cleanly and will dispose of any unwanted boxes, faulty equipment and packaging.

Many modern inverters can now use wireless home networks to transmit solar generation data to PCs, tablets and smartphones, so if you would like something like this, let us know and we will be happy to set it up as part of the installation.

Solar Power System Repairs

Solar Power System Testing, Servicing & Maintenance

Complete safety and performance testing and servicing for solar PV power systems of any size. Includes panels, cables, inverters, isolators and mains connections.

Regular system testing and maintenance ensures that your solar power system is always safe and compliant, that guarantee conditions are met and that the system is always working at it's best.

How often to test? With a few exceptions, for most residential rooftop solar PV installations, assuming that the system has been professionally installed and is in good working order, we would recomend a test every three - five years.

Rain on a Solar Roof

Solar Roof Repair - Repairs to roofs where solar is already installed

A poorly designed and installed solar PV system can cause terrible damage to roofs, which over time can allow moisture to enter and further damage the structure of buildings. Cracked tiles, poor flashing work, damaged underlay, battens and rafters, use of incorrect fixings, poor installation methods, there's a lot that can and has gone wrong when installing solar panels onto roofs.

We are flexible when it comes to fixing solar roofs, we already work with and are known by many local roofers and builders and welcome the opportunity to work with more. We also have some very capable roofers in house and are happy to work with homeowners, landlords, farmers, anyone interested in repairing a solar damaged roof directly.

New Roofing with Solar

New roofs and roof renewals

The time when a roof is due to be built or due for a major refurbishment might also be the opportune time to revisit the solar PV system design if there is already a PV system installed. or to design and install a solar PV system alongside the new roof.

Where traditional roofers may have concerns about designing/redesigning a PV system and integrating it nicely into a new roof, our capable and experienced roofers have succesfully designed and managed exactly these types of projects for many years, involving solar panels and a wide range of different roofs and roofing materials.

Electrical Inspection & Testing

Electrical Installation, Inspection, Testing and Maintenance

In addition to residential electrical systems; we are comfortable and skilled in working at design level, through to commissioning, with the requirements of installing new as well as upgrading existing light industrial/small commercial three phase, low voltage power networks. Power networks typically found in farms, warehouses, industrial units and smaller industrial estates, private estates, housing developments, care homes, hotels, office blocks and retail units.

We also have specialist knowledge at your disposal and ongoing experience with designing and installing systems utilising and incorporating stand-by generators, storage batteries, UPS Systems, DC systems and pumps.

Solar Panel Installers

Solar PV System Installation & Commissioning

We have installed solar panels onto barns, in open fields, onto factories, warehouses, workshops, big houses, small houses, stables, in gardens, on walls, on posts, on scaffolding, on containers, on timber, metal, concrete, slates, tiles, garages, cabins, lodges, carports and sheds.

As one of the UK's longest serving solar energy companies, we offer experience and professionally installed solar PV systems of all sizes. Residential, Commercial and Agricultural systems, on and off grid.

Solar PV Site Surveys & Site Selection

Site Surveys, Feasibility Studies & Site Selection

To deliver quality, well matched and on budget solar PV, renewable energy, electrical and construction projects, you need effective planning; this starts with reliable, accurate and clearly presented figures, information and measurements.

Surveys and reports are customised to suit each client, the energy need and the location, surveys, studies and reports can be cost effectively carried out for projects of any size.

Solar PV Feasibility Study

System Design & Planning

The success of any renewable energy project is always in the quality and robustness of the system design. System design is at the heart of our business and what we are most well known for. Our experienced in-house design team has been designing innovative and ground breaking solar PV and other renewable energy systems since 2007.

We take a collaborative and open approach to system design. We find the best systems are nearly always those where the system owner/developer has taken an active involvement with the design.

The next week Alex replaced it with a new inverter with WiFi connectivity. Everything is working perfectly (thanks Alex) in-addition I can now view my information through the Sunny Portal. A BIG thanks to Glen and Alex, superb service, highly recommended!!!!!" - David Powell, Worcester

"Rang In Balance energy after been let down. Scott was very helpful after explaining the problem. Explained everything to me. Sent a quote within a day. Arranged an appointment that suited me. Arrived at the time quoted the engineer was very polite. Explained everything again and sorted the problem... I would highly recommend this company for solar panel repairs.. And if needed again won't hesitate to contact them. Also the quote was for a brand new inverter. But as this wasn't needed only got charged for the work that was done.. Excellent service. Thankyou so much." - Julie Temperton, Gilberdyke

Recomendation via Google

"What a pleasant surprise. I found InBalance via Google when the inverter on my solar PV system failed and I was trying to find someone knowledgeable and reliable to fix or replace it. My first impression was that the comprehensive information on their web-site was a good start, far better than the web-sites of most of the shysters who now seem to fill the world of solar PV. The next positive was Scott of InBalance's rapid response, first to my initial enquiry and subsequently to visiting to analyse and report on the problem and then removing and replacing the inverter within just a couple of days. I hope I don't ever have another problem with my solar PV system but, if I do, the first people I shall call will be InBalance. Outstanding service and thoroughly recommended." - Tim Petty, Ilminster

"We had been let down by a failure on our system,and the manufacturer of the part was no longer trading. We called Glen during the afternoon and he was there in the evening. He examined the system and recommended a replacement manufacterer, promising to come back and fit in the new part once it arrived. We informed Glen of the arrival on a Friday PM, he was there fitting the new part by 10:30 on the following Monday. Of course it worked. That is what you call service, and guess who is looking after all our requirements in the future. Highly recommend this company." - Gill Spencer, Newbury

Recomendation via E-Mail

"Yes, thank you! The Inverter appears to be working well. Scott was very efficient and courteous, he couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you very much for your prompt and efficient service, apart from the expense (not your fault), it has been a pleasure working with you." Tracey Smale, Dartmouth

Recomendation via Facebook

"In Balance contacted us promptly after we made an enquiry, Glen telephoned and arranged to visit our property to identify the fault, he arrived the following day! Brilliant as when the system is down it isn't earning us money. We decided to have a new inverter installed as our original one was 9 years old. Glen ordered the unit which was delivered to our property he then arrange to fit the unit the following day. He really could not have done it any quicker so thank you for that. Good job done for reasonable money. Highly recommended." - Geoff Thomas, Abingdon

Review via Google

"Can't recommend In Balance Energy and Glen enough. I had a fault in a solar tile that needed tracking down. Other companies did not want to know as too much hassle. Glen saw it as a challenge and was all over it. Problem fixed and full power restored. Well done and thanks." Paul Rodwell, Wallingford

Recomendation via Facebook

"We were very relieved to find Glen when our Solar Panel system stopped working, as our original supplier had gone out of business. We cannot praise Glen's persistence enough as he thoroughly reviewed the system to identify the faults and repair it, despite the searing heat of last summer. He also talked to Solar Edge and provided fault data to enable us to get a replacement part under warranty. Many thanks Glen for getting us up and running again!" - Jane Pearce, Highworth
