Solar Glint & Glare

The reflected sunlight from shiny surfaces can affect safety and residential amenity in surrounding areas. The requirement for Glint and Glare assessments have grown through the rise of solar photovoltaic (PV) development over the last few year. The reflective properties of solar PV panels must be considered for surrounding residential swellings, road users, railway infrastructure and aviation infrastructure.

Solar Glint & Glare is a relatively new planning consideration and SRE’s in-house specialists advise developers and planners to ensure all requirements are met when assessing the impact of glint and glare from solar PV on surrounding infrastructure.
