Solar Panel Case Study: Mold

solar mold

In January 2023, our team travelled down the road to Mold, close to Wrexham and Chester, to install a Solar PV Array. With 14 solar panels and an average generation of 5.95kWh, this homeowner can save a lot of money on their electricity bills.

We installed a top of the range 5kW SunSynk Inverter inside the property, to manage the power generation and storage.

Our experts are on hand to answer any questions our clients might have, but they’re easy to use and are compatible with working both on and off grid.

Sell any unused energy back to the grid

The customer also chose 10kWh of battery storage, meaning that nearly two days’ worth of generated power can be held for later use. They can even sell any energy they don’t use back to the grid to earn some money from their solar panels.

We also made sure to include measures for Emergency Power Supply (EPS). Several essential circuits will continue to operate, even if there’s a power cut. This includes lighting, selected sockets and the all-important boiler.

Thankfully, the clients can rest easy knowing they won’t be without hot water if anything goes wrong with the grid. The batteries can also be recharged using an external generator, just in case there’s a power cut in the night.

No VAT to pay

There was no VAT to pay, as all solar panel installations are exempt, so their £12,000 quote was the final figure.

We’re thrilled to add another happy customer to our records, look at this glowing review they left for us. “Had a Sunsynk solar system installed at my home January 2023. 14 panels, 2 solar batteries (think off peak half price), fail over Incase of power cuts, and even a petrol generator hooked in for extra resilience if grid goes down for longer periods. Dale organised the lot; roof inspection, scaffold, purchased all equipment (saving on the VAT), installation and post support. Professional and very competent installers, can 110% recommend. The savings are unreal, the system is working perfectly and any future works I will be asking Dale and his team to complete. Thank you!”

FAQ’s

What is PV Array?

Solar Panels are made up of PV (Photovoltaic) Cells. A PV Array is made up of many solar panels, all connected by electrical wiring to create a large PV system.

The power generated by a single Solar panel isn’t enough for general use, so we use several to create enough power to be stored and use effectively in your home. Depending on space restrictions, some PV arrays can be large enough to create more power than you need. Around 14 panels should be enough to make a huge difference in your home.

Why Battery Storage?

Using electricity as it’s generated is all well and good during the day, but what about charging your phone at night? Installing batteries to store surplus power during the daytime will allow you to use it during the night and early mornings.

By storing generated energy this way, you can become even more independent of the grid. You can also increase the amount of clean energy your home uses and reduce your electricity bills by a huge margin.

How Can I Get Paid to Export Excess Power to the Grid?

If you have a PV array and generate more power than you use, you could take advantage of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) to sell surplus clean energy to the grid.

You’ll need a Solar PV array installed by a MCS approved company (like us!) and a smart meter that gives half hour readings. Then you need to apply to a provider from this OfGem list to get a SEG tariff. This doesn’t have to be the same energy provider you’re currently with, you can use energy from one company and sell surplus generated energy to another.

This means you can both save money from generating your own power with solar panels, and earn money by selling excess power.
