The installation featured here comprises an additional 6kWp of solar PV and incorporates Solar Edge optimisers. Solar Edge optimisers combat shade issues and maximise annual solar yield.
Extending your original solar PV system can generate even more free electricity. This can be stored in the solar battery storage system, ready to use when the sun goes down. The Tesla Powerwall 2 is not only aesthetically pleasing and a great piece of engineering, it stores up to 13.5Kwh of power, enabling you to effectively go off-grid completely.
Over-panelling, as it is commonly known, requires the support of your network provider and cannot be completed without approval. However, advances in technology and export limitation, eliminating risk to the grid infrastructure (equipment testing has to meet approved parameters) mean additional panels can be added to your system to increase your generation potential.
Add to that system monitoring in real-time, a visual display of your solar generation, load profile and battery storage system status – you are fully in control of your own power supply.
If you have the roof-space available, contact us for more information on extending your solar PV system. Get in touch before 1st October when plans to increase VAT on renewable energy installations come into force. Forest Electrical will work with your network provider to design the most appropriate system size for your property.
