Photovoltaic Solar Panel System and Hybrid Battery Inverters
Generate and Save your Own Energy
What is Solar PV?
Solar Photovoltaics, or Solar PV for short, is a technology in which daylight is converted into electrical power. Solar PV takes advantage of energy from the sun to create electricity that will operate electrical appliances and lighting.
What are the benefits of solar?
The advantages of solar pv systems range from generating your own electricity to achieving a return on investment via the Feed-in-Tariff. The financial benefits could be far greater than simply leaving your money in the bank or investing in high risk investment vehicles.
One of the advantages of solar pv is that as day light is free, you are able to reduce your bills via the electricity the solar panels generate. With energy rates rising (the average rate of increase has been 7% per annum) and increasing fears over our security of supply, by investing in solar panels you can future proof your supply and savings.
Installing Solar PV Panels
For an efficient installation of Solar PV panels, a clear and unshaded section of roof is required, with south or near south orientation. The roof needs to be large enough to accommodate the Solar PV modules, structurally sound and built using materials that are compatible with a wide range of fixing systems.
Direct or diffuse light shining on the Solar PV cells generate electrical energy. This electricity can be used directly by the building occupier, or it can be exported to a utility company through the national grid connection. Under the UK government Feed in Tariffs scheme, qualifying individuals or groups who install Solar PV can benefit from regular payments.
What are Hybrid Battery Inverters?
Unlike a standard solar inverter, a hybrid battery inverter sends excess DC power to a battery storage. Like a standard solar inverter, a hybrid battery inverter converts the DC power into AC power and feeds excess electricity generated directly into the grid. The benefits of including a hybrid Battery Inverter in your PV array are:
- Increase self-consumption to 80%+
- Reduce energy bills
- Protect against power outages
- Export control
- Latest battery technology
The battery systems Use the Sun Ltd install are the leading energy storage inverters on the market today and are compatible with most Solar PV systems.
