Villa Houses are common in Hong Kong and the tiled rooftops are an excellent space for Solar Panel Installation.
The Regulations for Solar Panel Installation on Villa Houses in Hong Kong are as follows:
Panels may only be mounted up to 1.5m above roof surface
At least 7 days prior to commencement of installation, plans must be submitted to Buildings Department and signed off by a Registered Structural Engineer (RSE) and an Authorised Person (AP). Completion notice must be submitted to Buildings Department within 14 days of completion of installation.
The system must be registered with EMSD once connected to the Hong Kong Grid
The entire rooftop may be covered in Solar Panels, there is no 50% coverage restriction as there is for Village Houses
Construction time will vary dependent on the rooftop size, but this will be clearly covered in our comprehensive proposal which SolarFuture will provide after a free site visit
Benefits of Solar PV System Installation on a Villa House in Hong Kong
Solar Panels act as a raised heat shield preventing heat buildup on the roof and reducing the heat load in the house, reducing air-conditioning expenses
Solar Panels will protect the roof from the harsh elements of the sun and rain, extending the life of the tiles
The Solar Installation will earn revenue from electricity sales to the Power Utility (CLP/ HKE), quickly paying for itself and ensuring reduced electricity costs for the homeowner for decades to come
For a Landlord with a tenanted property, sales of electricity generated by the Solar Installation can form a welcome source of additional revenue from your investment property, in some cases adding up to the equivalent of a 13th month’s rent!th months’ rent!
The best investment you can make in your home or building
