Starting as Electrical Engineers 14 years ago with a manifesto of  – “employ qualified personnel only and then, train and train and train, together with everyone understanding that the customer’s satisfaction is our North Star”, – solar panel installations quickly became our busiest service with the advent of the F.I.T. scheme.

How Does A Solar Panel System Reduce Your Electricity Bill?

Solar Panel Installers Ipswich Explain...

If you’ve already done your homework 😉 then click this link, Solar Panel Installers Ipswich for your bespoke quotation! Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. When sunlight hits a solar panel, it is absorbed by the photovoltaic cells and is converted into direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity. This AC electricity can be used to power your home or business, or it can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.

Here’s a more detailed explanation ...

Solar Panel Installers Ipswich Photons in sunlight knock electrons loose from the atoms in the photovoltaic cells, generating a flow of electricity.

The photovoltaic cells are made up of layers of semiconductor materials, usually silicon. When sunlight hits the cell, it creates an electric field across the layers.

The electric field causes the electrons to flow, creating a current. Metal conductive plates on the top and bottom of the cell collect the current and direct it through wires to the inverter.

The inverter converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panel into AC electricity, which is the type of electricity used in homes and businesses.

The AC electricity is then sent to a breaker panel, where it is distributed to the electrical devices in your home or business. Any excess electricity can be sent back to the grid if you are connected to one.

Overall, solar panels use the energy from the sun to produce electricity, which can be used to power your home or business and reduce your reliance on fossil fuels.

A solar inverter, also known as a photovoltaic (PV) inverter, converts the direct current (DC) electricity produced by solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity that is used in most homes and businesses.

Here is Solar Panel Installers Ipswichhow it works:

  1. The solar panels on the roof of a home or building capture sunlight and convert it into DC electricity.
  2. The DC electricity is then sent to the solar inverter, which is typically mounted on a suitable wall or in a loft space, maybe in a  utility room.
  3. The inverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity, which is compatible with the electrical grid and can be used to power appliances and devices in the home or building.
  4. The AC electricity is then sent to the main electrical panel, also known as the breaker box or fuse box, where it can be distributed to different circuits and outlets throughout the home or building.

Some solar inverters are designed to work with a single solar panel or a small array of panels, while others are designed to work with larger solar systems that have many panels. There are several different types of solar inverters available, including string inverters, microinverters, and central inverters. Each type has its own unique features and benefits, and the best choice for a particular installation will depend on the specific needs and requirements of the system.

As opposed to a “traditional” inverter, micro – inverters are devices that convert direct current (DC) electricity, which is produced by solar panels, into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity that is used in homes and businesses. They are typically installed in photovoltaic (PV) systems to maximize the efficiency of the system and to allow each solar panel to operate independently.

Solar Panel Installers IpswichHere’s how microinverters work:

  1. Solar panels generate DC electricity when they are exposed to sunlight.
  2. The DC electricity is sent to the microinverter, which is typically mounted on the back of the solar panel or on a nearby wall.
  3. The microinverter converts the DC electricity into AC electricity using an electronic circuit.
  4. The AC electricity is then sent to a distribution panel or an electrical load, such as an appliance or a light.

Microinverters have several benefits over traditional inverters, which are used in most PV systems. For example, microinverters allow each solar panel to operate independently, which can increase the overall efficiency of the system. They also allow for easier maintenance and troubleshooting, as each solar panel can be tested and monitored individually. In addition, microinverters are typically more reliable than traditional inverters, as they have fewer components and are less prone to failure

Solar storage batteries are used to store excess energy produced by solar panels so it can be used at a later time, such as when the sun is not shining or during a power outage.

 

Solar Panel Installers Ipswich Here’s how they work:

  1. Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity.
  2. The DC electricity is sent to a solar inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used by household appliances.
  3. Any excess solar energy that is not used is sent to a solar storage battery.
  4. The battery stores the excess energy in the form of chemical energy. When the battery is full, it will stop accepting more energy.
  5. When the solar panels are not producing enough energy to meet the demand (e.g., at night or during a power outage), the battery will release the stored energy in the form of AC electricity.
  6. The released energy is then sent to the household’s electrical panel and distributed to appliances as needed.

Solar storage batteries come in a variety of sizes and types, including lead-acid, lithium-ion, and nickel-metal hydride. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as cost, lifespan, and efficiency.

Another benefit of solar panels is that you can generate some income by sending your surplus energy generated through the solar panels back to the national grid. Unlike the previous Feed-in-Tariff, the current Smart Export Guarantee allows homeowners to negotiate short-term contracts with different operators. This enables them to choose the provider who bids the highest fare and without exit fees. Solar panel owners in the UK can earn up to £600 per year from the sold electricity.

Solar Battery Storage Solutions In Ipswich

No matter how good your solar panel installation is, you cannot get maximum efficiency if you’re not incorporating solar battery storage.

You need solar battery storage for storing the excess and unused energy from your solar panels. Solar panels only generate electricity during the day, but we still need electricity at night. Without the batteries, your solar system will only be beneficial during the day, plus all the energy that is not in use will be lost.

On January 1st 2020, the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) was launched in the UK.

All Generators (you) who wish to receive payment for the electricity which they export back to the National Grid will need to apply to a SEG Licensee (an electricity supplier which offers a SEG tariff).

SEG Licensees must offer a SEG tariff to all eligible Generators.

Each SEG Licensee will have details of their specific application process on their website. Details of SEG payments (including amount due and contract length) will be determined by your chosen SEG Licensee. Any SEG tariff offered must always remain above zero. Generators are also entitled to payments based upon actual meter readings, even if some suppliers offer deals with alternative payment models.

Please note that you can apply for a SEG tariff with any SEG Licensee – your SEG Licensee does not need to be the same company as your current energy supplier. You can choose to use separate companies for your SEG payments, electricity supply, and your gas supply if you wish.

As of February 2022 the SEG payments were from 0.5p per kWh to 7.5p per kWh. depending on your Licensee.

 

Let’s look at some scenarios here regarding your (the generator’s) use of electricity: if the household is out of the house for most of the day and things like the washing machine, dishwasher and any other “heavy users” are not programmed to come on during daylight hours, then the excess power that you are generating is being fed into the grid. Depending on your utility company (Licensee) you’ll be paid their SEG rate.

Were the excess power that your system generates when the house is empty or just not being used – being stored in your solar storage battery for later use, that would save you buying electricity from your supplier at “ballpark” 27p per kWh at the heaviest time for use of electricity for most households.

We invite you to contact us for a free feasibility study to ascertain the correct solar battery storage size for your requirements. It’s worth noting that a solar storage battery installed with solar panels is rated at 0% VAT. If the storage battery is fitted retrospectively, it’s rated at 20%!

Solar batteries’ capacity may drop slightly over time, but the return on your investment is worth it if you have high-quality batteries. They will give you a longer lifecycle. Below are some of the solar batteries you can use for your solar systems.

Lead-acid Batteries: Lead-acid batteries are more affordable compared to other types like Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are further classified as flooded or sealed solar batteries. The flooded lead-acid batteries require more maintenance, compared to the sealed solar batteries, but they have a longer lifespan. A flooded lead-acid battery can last for 5 to 7 years, and a sealed one, 3 to 5 years.

Lithium-ion Batteries: Most homeowners prefer these batteries because they are more compact and have more capacity. Unlike Lead-acid batteries that last for five years, Lithium-ion batteries from reputable manufacturers last for a minimum of 10 years. You will pay a little more for this type of battery, but you will get a better return on your investment in the long run.

The worlds first solar EV charger

This future proof, intelligent electric car charging is conceived, evolved, and manufactured in-house right here in the UK.

A solar EV charger works by allowing you to use excess solar to power up your car. Generating solar energy requires solar panels (PV) to be fitted to your home or place of work, but the energy generated through the solar panels is totally free, essentially giving you free miles!

Light energy produced by the sun is called a photon. It is the most basic, fundamental particle of all light. It is these photons in natural daylight that are converted by solar panel cells to produce electricity. This small bundle of electromagnetic energy is constantly in motion. Simply put, a solar panel works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to bounce into electrons setting them free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity.
