FAQ's

Make an informed decision and choose a professional solar installation
for a clean, green, and sustainable energy future.

 – First and foremost, you’ll save on your energy costs.

   – Solar panels increase the value and energy efficiency of your property.

   – You can get paid for sending excess energy back to the grid.

   – Solar panels reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment.

– Battery storage allows you to store excess solar energy generated during the day for use at night or during high-demand times.

– It can provide backup power during outages or grid failures.

– Solar panels capture sunlight and convert it into electricity.

 – They consist of photovoltaic cells that generate electricity when sunlight hits them.

 – Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity, which is then converted into alternating current (AC) for use in your home.

– The amount of energy produced depends on system size, location, and weather conditions.

– On average, a residential solar system is 3.5 to 10 kW, producing 3,000 to 10,000 kWh per year.

 – The cost varies depending on your specific needs, hardware quality, and installation team.

– Quality is more important than whether panels are mono or poly crystalline.

– Low light performance and temperature coefficient are key factors.

 – Panels with better quality silicon and glass maintain power in low light.

– Efficient heat dissipation is crucial for high-temperature performance.

 – Solar panels typically come with a 25-year manufacturer warranty.

– Efficiency guarantees ensure panels will work at 80% capacity after 25 years.

 – Batteries and converters last around 10 years.

– On-grid systems are connected to the electrical grid, allowing excess electricity to be sent back for credits.

 – Off-grid systems are independent, relying on battery storage.

– Residential systems range from 6 to 8 panels (3.5 kW) for smaller homes to larger systems for high energy demand.

 – Commercial and industrial systems depend on various factors, including grid connection and battery backup.

– In most cases, no maintenance is required.

 – We provide a 21-point annual system inspection for five years.

   – Small installations may benefit from an annual professional clean.

 – All our solar systems come with complimentary monitoring.

 – You can track your energy generation and battery status with our systems.

– You no longer receive Feed-In Tariff (FIT) payments, but the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) pays for energy sent back to the grid.

 – Yes, solar panels still generate electricity on cloudy days, although at reduced efficiency.

 – kW (kiloWatt) measures electrical power.

   – kWh (kiloWatt hour) measures energy consumption or production over time.

   – 1 kWp is equivalent to 1,000 Wp (Watt peak).

– It’s not recommended to install solar panels yourself as it can be dangerous and may void your warranty.

   – Professional installation is advisable, as it ensures safety and system performance.
