It's been four months since our panels went up, and it's a fitting time to review their performance and do a solar PV and inverter review of our system. We get technical and specific about the efficiency of our new solar panels.
Being in the UK, people are sometimes skeptical about the effectiveness and performance of solar energy, so we wanted to give an unbiased report, based on real life experiences, illustrating power output on overcast, rainy and sunny days.
We selected E-ON as our JA solar photovoltaic panels installer and they obtained all the necessary approvals for our project. We opted for a large array consisting of 22 panels delivering 6.16kW (with an annual estimated output of 5,506kWh) in order to power the air source heat pump during the day.
That’s it. We've moved into our new house, which has been a momentous (and exhausting) occasion. But this is just the start of our journey and there’s a lot that we need to do to get sustainable.
