FAQ

Does my system need to be maintained?

 

Yes, the system does need maintenance. The maintenance of your solar panel system is very important. It can prevent dirt and debris from building up on the panel, which then affects its efficiency.

What is the life expectancy on the batteries?

Depends on Batteries, five to seven years. The life expectancy of a lithium-ion battery is approximately 5-7 years after manufacture. Battery life is a major factor that companies are considering making their battery strong. They are designed to withstand cycles of heat and cold.

What is the payback on the system?

 Two to Five years.

How long does it take to do a complete installation?

Three to Five days.

Do my solar panels produce energy on a cloudy day?

Even on cloudy days, solar panels will generate electricity. However, its output has decreased. On cloudy days, the performance of a standard single crystal cell may be 10% to 25% of its typical performance. It is incorrect that solar panels do not generate electricity on cloudy days, because temperature is not responsible for generating electricity.

Will Solar affect the value of my house?

Yes, installing solar panels on your house will not only help reduce the current monthly utility bill; it will increase the value of your house.

How often should the solar panels be cleaned professionally?

Solar panels should be cleaned every six months. It is a good idea to regularly check your solar panel’s condition. Doing so can help prevent potential issues. It is recommended to professionally clean the panels at least twice a year.

What is the life expectancy on the inverter?

Although solar inverters can vary from 10 to 15 years, most of them are rated to last for about 5 to 10 years. On the other hand, off-grid battery-based inverters can last for about 2 to 10 years.

What guarantee do you offer?

As per manufacturers.

What are the environmental benefits of solar?

Solar energy does not pollute the air. The supply of solar energy delays climate change. Solar energy can reduce carbon dioxide emissions Solar energy can reduce dependence on fossil fuels. Little or no energy loss during transport. Versatile installation. The energy demand generated is consistent with the environmental impact. Strengthened the security of the power grid.

How many solar panels will I need for my home

Depends on size, regularly 5kw = 9 panels. Yet this is subject to each different home and circumstances.

What are the best batteries to use?

Lithium iron. Advantages such as high energy density. High energy density is one of the main advantages of lithium-ion battery technology. Since electronic devices need to run longer between charges and consume more power, batteries with higher energy density are always needed.

What is the life expectancy on the solar panels?

Solar panels typically last for about 25 to 30 years. However, they can also slow down and produce less electricity. High-quality equipment makes a difference.

Can I finance my solar panel system?

 

Yes.

Can I convert to solar over a period?

Yes.

What are the financial benefits of solar?

– Reduction in electric power bill.
– Positive impact on the economy.
– The cost of energy production is zero.

Is my roof suitable for solar?

Needs to be inspected. Even if the location and orientation of the roof is perfect, your home may not be ideal for solar power due to the shadows. Unfortunately, some roofs are partially or fully shaded during the day or part of the time. If the sunlight cannot directly reach the roof, when there is an obstacle between the solar panel and the sun, no solar energy will be generated.
Aspects such as:
– IS YOUR ROOF’S MATERIAL SUITABLE FOR SOLAR?
– IS YOUR ROOF ANGLE SUITABLE FOR SOLAR?
Obtaining a complete and professional solar evaluation is indeed the best way to understand whether solar panels can be installed on the roof.

What size solar energy system should I get?

The most common is 5KW but it depends on the household and the amount of power you require if it is in your home or your business it differs.
