In recent years, solar panels have become more popular thanks to innovations that enhance their usage. Thankfully, there are solar batteries that help homeowners to better utilise this energy from the sun. The solar storage batteries from Moixa for instance, are great at storing solar energy generated during the day, to use at night when there’s no sunshine.
To be able to have working Solar panels in your home, it is important to understand key points about how to incorporate them to your home.
What are solar panels?
Solar panels are devices designed to convert energy from the sun, into electrical energy used in homes. Photovoltaics cells used to make solar panels are what convert sunlight into usable electricity.
The coming of these is one of the major technology advances available globally. Grouped under renewable energy sources, it provide the cleanest and greenest energy.
In the UK, the installation of them in homes help achieve green mile goals.
Whilst electricity from solar panels is great, it can only be used during the day, unless a solar battery is installed. Local and international manufacturers have been working to produce quality batteries that store solar energy, to use at night. You could benefit a lot from our solar storage batteries from Moixa.
It is worth noting that in the UK, residents with solar panels sell some of the electricity they produce to the grid. They then later buy electricity back from the grid, unfortunately at a higher price than they sold it for. With a suitable solar storage battery, you could stop buying electricity at night and use the stored energy produced by your solar panels instead.
How much can my solar panels produce?
If you are looking to add solar panels to your home, it is important you know how much electricity you’ll be getting. It is not easy to pinpoint the exact amount your panels will produce, as there are several factors to consider.
Solar panel positioning and weather conditions determine how much you’ll get. It produce about 225 to 350 watts, averaging 265 watts, per panel. To calculate the total watt-hours of each panel, simply multiply the average wattage by the hours the sun has shone.
It is easy to produce more power than needed with solar panels. Without a solar storage battery, sadly you cannot use this energy all through the day and night. Purchase a solar battery if you intend to install solar panels, to help maximise solar energy.
What is the cost of solar panel installation?
Of course, you’ll need to know certain cost details to be able to have a working budget for a solar system project. This is determined by several factors such as house size. For instance, a 3-bedroom house will need 12, 3 kW solar panels. To fully install solar panels, the estimated cost would be between £4,000-£6,000.
When it comes to batteries, the number of solar panels and their production, determine what solar storage battery to install.
At Moixa, we have highly skilled and experienced specialists who can advise you on the most suitable solar storage battery, to enable you to get the best from your solar power system. One of our popular installations is a 4kWp solar system plus a 4.8 kWh Moixa Smart Battery offered at £8,270 with standard installation included.
Reasons for installing a solar power system in your home
Solar panels offer a range of benefits that make it worth investing in a solar power system.
You benefit from;
People are sceptical of a solar system investment because they think it’s not worth it. If you are in a permanent home, this is a project that could save you a lot of money, otherwise used on electricity bills. In a year, for example, you could save between £160 to £200. This means in around 10-15 years; you could recoup your investment. You would accumulate approximately 20 years of effective solar production. Most solar panels last around 30 years.
With a battery you could cut your annual electricity bills by 50%. For a 3-bedroom house, you could save between £295 to £600 depending on whether you use gas. Adding solar storage batteries from Moixa can help you to actually run your entire home on solar energy.
Some other benefits of solar energy include;
- Control of carbon emissions
- Cleaner energy
- Renewable source of energy that’ll never run out
- Easy harnessing in almost all locations
- Energy independence free from blackouts or brownouts
Adding solar panels to your home is one of the best ideas you can have, however it is important that you understand as much as you can, about it.
