Import meters contain a way of counting how much current runs through it. This allows a meter to know exactly how much electricity is being used in a house. The majority of modern meters will tell how much current is […]
Solar photovoltaic systems are silent in operation, have no moving parts and require no maintenance. The inverter, which transforms the current which is produced by the solar panels into usable electricity, will usually need to be replaced within 25 years […]
Solar panels vary in cost depending on the panel manufacturer and the number of panels installed. A domestic system will range in cost from around £4,500 to £10,000 on a pitched roof. Solar panels installed on a flat roof or […]
We typically recommend that the maximum domestic solar PV system size is 4kWp, or 16 standard panels (240W-250W) and takes up around 26m² of the roof area – the equivalent of just under two and a half parking spaces. The […]
Yes if you want to install a PV system with batteries, you have two options. The first is to install a battery backup system to your PV system. Some inverters incorporate a battery backup system and others use a backup […]
There are various solar PV monitoring devices available which can range from a monitor simply displaying your output in real time to a web connected monitor which can display your current and historical output online as well as connecting to […]
When deciding where to place solar panels on your property, the ideal location will face south and be un-shaded. Most people look to place the panels on a pitched roof, but you can also locate then on a flat roof, […]
A basic tenet of thermodynamics is that energy is never actually created only converted; solar panels convert solar energy into electricity rather than just creating it.
