The Solar Panel System
About Solar Panel Systems
This year, lots of people switched to Solar Panel Systems instead of the regular National Grid supply, and they saved money. The main reason they did this is that solar panels give them free energy, which is great because energy costs keep going up and it’s uncertain.
Also, at SolarGain, we can set you up with a complete Solar Panel System, including batteries, so you have energy even at night or on cloudy days.
We Supply Modular and Scalable Solar PV
Our Solar Panel Systems come with the ability to monitor the real-time production of solar energy through an app. Additionally, the Shine app also provides information on usage levels, battery charge, and energy flowing back into the grid.
Furthermore, the app shows your energy production and consumption throughout the year; therefore, you can keep track of how much you have saved month to month.
What are the benefits of Solar PV Systems?
How do Solar Panel Systems with Batteries Storage work?
When the sun is up, there is an abundance of energy available to power your home! This sunlight falls on to the solar panels which convert it to DC electricity. Subsequently, this electricity flows to the hybrid inverter, which converts it into usable 240V AC electricity to power all your appliances and lights.
Moreover, in a solar power system, the battery storage allows you to save the excess energy and keep it for when you need it. Therefore, when the sun goes down, you don’t need to use as much energy from the grid, and less of the excess energy you generate goes back to the grid. Additionally, you can even charge your electric vehicle with your free solar energy!
What happens at night?
Like us, your solar panels go to sleep at night. This is because they rely on the sun to generate energy; when there is none, they become inactive and stop producing electricity. However, solar power can still power your home at night!
With a Solar Power System that includes batteries, your home can run on the energy generated during the day. Additionally, when there is no daylight, your hybrid inverter will start using the energy stored in the batteries, thus saving you money day and night!
These are just some of the areas SolarGain serve!
Solar Panel Installation FAQs
A solar panel installation will save you money on your energy bills, improve your home’s energy performance certificate (EPC), provide energy security, reduce your carbon footprint and crucially, help reduce global warming.
The installation time for a solar panel system in the UK depends on the size and complexity of the system. A typical residential solar panel system can be installed in a day.
Solar Panels work all year round, even on cloudy days. Solar panels need strong sunlight to work to their maximum efficiency and consequently the shorter winter days mean they produce less electricity.
A well-maintained solar panel system can last up to 25 years in the UK.
