There are 2 main reasons that motivate us to invest in solar energy.
We design your system to meet your usage and daily lifestyle and optimise it for either reducing your energy bills or reducing your carbon footprint.
In the UK, the optimum position for a panel is facing due south and tilted upwards at an angle of 38°. However, any position between south-east and south-west at an angle between 20° and 50° will perform incredibly well.
North-facing roofs can also benefit from solar panels, their output is typically 50% less than a south facing roof, but it’s still harnessing free energy and can significantly reduce your electricity bill.
An inverter converts direct current (DC) electricity from sources such as batteries or fuel cells to alternating current (AC). The electricity can be at any voltage required; in particular, it can power AC equipment designed for mains operation or be rectified to produce DC at any voltage required.
We fit ALL BLACK mono panels with BIRD-PROOFING and a 25 YEAR performance warranty AS STANDARD. They are highly efficient whilst also being more attractive than traditional solar panels.
The revolutionary introduction of home battery storage has brought solar back in the game! During daylight hours, any unused solar energy can now be stored for use later that evening. Cheers to that!
Batteries are expensive so it’s important to get the size right for your needs and you may benefit from changing your energy tariff.
You can not only store excess solar energy in your battery for later use, but it can also be utilised in your electric vehicle and your hot water cylinder. Beware though, it’s unlikely you can use all these storage options efficiently at the same time.
If you are looking to reduce the amount of gas that you burn then you could take advantage of heating your hot water tank using surplus solar energy. We recommend a product called Eddi, manufactured in the UK by MyEnergi who also produce a popular EV charger called Zappi. These two products work well together by diverting excess solar energy into your electric vehicle (Zappi) or into your hot water cylinder (Eddi).
With a time-based electricity tariff you could charge your vehicle overnight at a very cheap off-peak rate. With an EV charger that has a solar-charging facility you could also benefit from charging the vehicle using your excess solar generation. This would only be effective in the summer months and you may find that it is better to charge your storage batteries first before charging the electric vehicle.
