A 4.3kW Solar PV System Installation in Leicester

Updated: May 1


Project Overview:

  • Location: Leicester, United Kingdom

  • Project Type: Residential Solar PV System Installation

  • System Components:

    • 10 All Black Jinko Solar Panels

    • 3.68kW Sunsynk Hybrid Inverter

    • 5.12kWh Sunsynk Battery

    • MyEnergi Zappi2 Electric Car Charger


Introduction:

Our clients, residents of a detached home in Leicester, were committed to reducing their carbon footprint and lowering their electricity bills. They decided to invest in a solar PV system to generate clean and renewable energy for their home.


In addition to this, they are owners of an electric vehicle (EV) and wanted a convenient and eco-friendly way to charge it.


After careful consideration and consultation with local solar experts, they opted for a solar PV system comprising 10 all-black solar panels, a 3.68kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter, a 5.12 kWh Sunsynk battery, and a MyEnergi Zappi2 electric car charger.


System Design and Selection:

  • Solar Panels: The installation included 10 all-black solar panels, chosen for their aesthetic appeal and efficiency. These panels were carefully positioned on the roof of the home to maximise sunlight exposure throughout the day.

  • Inverter and Battery: The Sunsynk hybrid inverter was selected to manage solar energy production efficiently and store excess energy in the 5.12 kWh Sunsynk battery for use during cloudy days or night time. The hybrid inverter also allows for the integration of the electric car charger.

  • Electric Car Charger: To meet our client's electric vehicle charging needs, a MyEnergi Zappi2 electric car charger was installed. This intelligent charger is capable of adjusting the charging rate based on the availability of solar energy, reducing the overall cost of charging and further decreasing their carbon footprint.


Installation Process:

The installation process was carried out by our team of experienced technicians who ensured that all components were securely mounted, properly wired, and met safety regulations. The following steps were taken:

  1. Roof Assessment: The installers evaluated the roof's condition and orientation to determine the optimal placement for the solar panels.

  2. Solar Panel Installation: The 10 all-black solar panels were securely mounted on the roof, oriented to capture the maximum amount of sunlight throughout the day.

  3. Inverter and Battery Setup: The Sunsynk hybrid inverter and Sunsynk battery were installed in the home's garage, ensuring easy access for maintenance. The inverter was integrated with the battery to manage the energy flow efficiently.

  4. Electric Car Charger Installation: The MyEnergi Zappi2 electric car charger was installed at the front of the property with easy access to charge from the driveway. It was connected to the Sunsynk inverter to enable intelligent charging based on solar energy availability.

  5. Testing and Commissioning: After the installation was completed, the entire system was thoroughly tested to ensure it was functioning correctly. Our clients were provided with training on system operation and monitoring.


Benefits and Results:

The solar PV system installation had several notable benefits:

  1. Reduced Energy Bills: The solar panels generate a significant portion of the client's electricity needs, reducing their reliance on grid power and resulting in substantial energy cost savings.

  2. Carbon Footprint Reduction: The clean energy generated by the system reduces the household's carbon footprint, contributing to environmental sustainability.

  3. Energy Independence: With the Sunsynk battery, our clients have a reliable backup power source during grid outages and increased energy independence.

  4. Convenient EV Charging: The MyEnergi Zappi2 electric car charger makes it convenient and cost-effective to charge their electric vehicle with solar energy, reducing their transportation-related emissions.

  5. Increased Property Value: The addition of the solar PV system and electric car charger can enhance the overall value of the home.


In conclusion, the installation of the solar PV system with all-black solar panels, Sunsynk components, and the MyEnergi Zappi2 electric car charger has been a successful endeavor for our clients. It aligns with their commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency, providing long-term financial and environmental benefits for their Leicester home.
