For quiet and clean electricity generation with a modular approach, Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems are hard to beat.
The versatility of solar PV lends its technology for any electrical generation purpose you may need from small vehicle mounted battery charging systems to multi kilowatt grid connected generation installations.
Every day, during daylight, a PV system will generate electricity. It does not have to be full sunlight, but maximum output will be achieved in full sun. Cloudy days will probably produce around 10% of the rated full output. In the South West, output from a Solar PV system will be around 20% higher than from a same sized system in the North of England.
We always specify good quality PV modules. As with any industry, there are very inferior units available that will be quoted by 'budget' companies, we always avoid PV equipment that will obviously not last the full 25 year lifespan.
Our current 4kWp quality 16 panel Solar PV system cost, using SolarWorld all Black modules and an SMA inverter installed from just £6500 inc 5% VAT .. (Scaffold, if required, is extra)
We are able to provide 'all black' modules which are becoming popular, but be warned these units will give you around 5% less power generation per year due to the inherant inefficiencies of making the module completely black. Obviously, there will be asthetic applications where black will be required. Call or email us for more information.
Solar PV systems, once installed, are quiet, need no maintenence and have an easily expected life of 20 - 25 years and beyond. There are PV systems built in the 1960's that are still operating right now!
We offer a full 10 year insurance backed warranty on all parts & labour for all our grid connected systems! This is in addition to any PV manufacturers 20 year warranty.
On the inside of the building we install quality electronics to match the PV array output. We try to use the trusted Sunny Boy or Fronius G83/1 compliant inverters whenever possible or any emerging reliable compliant inverters such as Enphase micro inverters, or Solar Edge and all wiring and certification included.
No hidden extras and charges, all grid connection and electrical works and certification is included.
We now have our own scaffold tower access equipment, suitable for single storey buildings, but for 2 storeys or higher there will be additional costs for scaffolding, to comply with current Health & Safety regulations.

Over the last year or so, we have been involved with a number of new start up PV companies who needed guidance, and have been called in to repair badly installed systems by alleged PV installers who obviously did not know what they were doing. Because of this, we have started a Solar PV repair service. You can be reassured that even if your original installer turned out to be one of the 'fit and run' brigade, our guys are able to attend to resolve the problem.
