Depends on lots of factors.
How many panels, what direction they face, how much sunshine you get.
Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.


Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Real question to get answered is what will be the repay period for the investment to start providing profit for you !

Your link does not work, but even so, your link (i figured where it goes) is of no use since in the UK 99.7% of houses do not have a metal roof.
