Solar

What is solar energy?

Solar energy is the energy that comes from the sun. It is a renewable energy source, meaning that it can be replenished naturally. Solar energy can be used to generate electricity, heat water, and heat spaces.

How do solar panels work?

Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, which are made from silicon, a semiconductor material. When sunlight hits a photovoltaic cell, it creates an electric current. This electricity can then be used to power homes, businesses, and other applications.

What are the benefits of solar energy?

Solar energy has many benefits, including: It is a clean and renewable energy source. It can help reduce electricity bills. It can increase the value of your home. It can reduce your carbon footprint. It is reliable and low-maintenance.

How much do solar panels cost?

The cost of solar panels varies depending on the size and type of system you install, as well as the location of your home. However, the average cost of solar panels in the UK is around £1.50 – £2.00 per watt.

How long do solar panels last?

Solar panels have a lifespan of 25-30 years. This means that you will continue to generate electricity from your solar panels for many years after the initial cost of installation has been paid off.

Do solar panels work on cloudy days or at night?

Solar panels can still generate electricity on cloudy days, although their efficiency is reduced. Solar panels do not generate electricity at night.

Can I go completely off-grid with solar power?

Yes, it is possible to go completely off-grid with solar power. This would require you to install a solar battery storage system to store the electricity that your solar panels generate during the day. You would also need to make sure that your home is energy-efficient to reduce your power consumption.

Storage

What is solar storage?

Solar storage is a system that allows you to store the energy generated by your solar panels for later use. This can be useful for a number of reasons, such as:
To reduce your electricity bill by using stored energy when electricity rates are high
To power your home during a power outage
To live off-grid

What different types of solar batteries are available?

There are a number of different types of solar batteries available, including:
Lead-acid batteries: These are the oldest type of solar battery, and they are also the least expensive. However, they have a shorter lifespan than other types of batteries and they are not as efficient.

Lithium-ion batteries: These batteries are more expensive than lead-acid batteries, but they have a longer lifespan and they are more efficient. They are also lighter and smaller in size.

Flow batteries: These batteries are the most expensive type of solar battery, but they have the longest lifespan and they are the most efficient. They are also the safest type of battery, and they can be used to store large amounts of energy.

What size solar battery do I need?

The size of solar battery you need will depend on your energy needs and your budget. If you are looking to reduce your electricity bill, you will need a smaller battery than if you are looking to power your home during a power outage or live off-grid.
To determine the size of battery you need, you will need to calculate your energy consumption. Once you have your energy consumption, you can use a solar battery calculator to determine the size of battery you need.

How much does a solar storage system cost?

The cost of a solar storage system will vary depending on the size of the system, the type of battery you choose, and the manufacturer you choose. However, the cost of solar storage systems has decreased significantly in recent years, and they are now becoming more affordable for homeowners.

How long does a solar battery last?

The lifespan of a solar battery will vary depending on the type of battery you choose. Lead-acid batteries have a lifespan of 3-5 years, lithium-ion batteries have a lifespan of 10-15 years, and flow batteries have a lifespan of 20-25 years.

Is solar storage safe?

Solar storage is very safe. However, it is important to have your system installed by a qualified installer. It is also important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for care and maintenance of your battery.

What are the benefits of solar storage?

There are a number of benefits to solar storage, including:
Reduced electricity bills
Increased energy independence
Backup power during power outages
The ability to live off-grid

Is solar storage right for me?

Whether or not solar storage is right for you will depend on your individual needs and circumstances. If you are looking to reduce your electricity bill, increase your energy independence, or have backup power during power outages, then solar storage may be a good option for you.

EV Chargers

What are the different types of EV chargers?

There are three main types of EV chargers:
Level 1 chargers: These chargers are the slowest, but they are also the most common. They can be plugged into a standard household outlet and provide up to 1.4 kW of power. This can add up to 5 miles of range per hour.

Level 2 chargers: These chargers are faster than Level 1 chargers, but they require a dedicated 240-volt outlet. They can provide up to 19.2 kW of power, which can add up to 40 miles of range per hour.

Level 3 chargers: These chargers are the fastest, but they are also the least common. They are typically found at public charging stations and can provide up to 350 kW of power. This can add up to 250 miles of range in just 30 minutes.

Which type of EV charger is right for me?

The type of EV charger that is right for you will depend on your needs and budget. If you have a short commute and you can charge your car at home overnight, then a Level 1 charger may be sufficient. However, if you have a long commute or you need to charge your car quickly, then a Level 2 or Level 3 charger may be a better option.Flow batteries: These batteries are the most expensive type of solar battery, but they have the longest lifespan and they are the most efficient.
