What Can a Pager Power Glint and Glare Assessment Cover?
We will tailor the scope and contents of a study to suit the specific needs of your solar project. We can always assess the visual impact of potential solar Glint and Glare effects, and produce a comprehensive report with the findings.
Whether it’s a project in the UK, Ireland, or elsewhere in the world, we are able to also use our experience to recommend next steps to keep your development moving forward. So far we have completed over 300 of these assessments, for projects in a host of different countries.
You can read about 3 projects that we’ve completed Glint and Glare Assessments for in our case studies:

England, UK: Click to read about Sowerby Lodge Solar Development, Cumbria – Aerodrome concerns.
Republic of Ireland: Click to read about Coolroe Solar Energy Development, County Wexford – Ground based receptors – dwellings and roads.
How much will one of our assessments cost?
Since our costing varies based on project requirements, it is difficult to accurately quote a standard figure. However, we do say that our solar panel Glint and Glare assessments are from £1195.
The best way to get a better idea of price is to call and speak with us about your development. We can then prepare and send you a quote.
How Do I Get in Touch?
Usually the best way is to speak to one of our specialist consultants by calling +44 (0) 1787 319001. However, if you prefer to send us an email please send your project and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
Why assess Glint and Glare effects?
Even though they are designed to absorb as much light as possible, although reflections from Solar Photovoltaic Systems (SPV) could potentially affect the interests of:
The reflectivity from solar panels could, under certain conditions, cause flash blindness (Glint) or a prolonged source of brightness/ dazzle (Glare).
Assessing the impact of potential solar Glint and Glare on aviation personnel is an area that we particularly excel at, and have developed specialised software to assess. Regarding solely aviation interests, both the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) have issued guidance on reflections from SPV.
