Our clients, owners of a detached home in Peterborough, were eager to embrace sustainable living and reduce their dependence on traditional grid power. They decided to invest in a comprehensive solar PV system to harness clean energy for their household needs. The system comprised thirteen all-black solar panels, a 5kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter, and two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries, providing them with increased energy production and storage capacity.

System Design and Selection:

  • Solar Panels: The installation featured 13 all-black solar panels, carefully chosen for their efficiency and sleek appearance. The panels were strategically positioned on the roof of the client's home to optimise solar exposure throughout the day.

  • Inverter and Batteries: A 5kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter was selected to efficiently manage the solar energy conversion process. Two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries were incorporated into the system to store excess energy for use during periods of low solar production or in the event of a power outage.

Installation Process:

Our team of MCS certified installers undertook the installation process, ensuring the seamless integration of all components. The installation process included the following key steps:

  1. Roof Assessment: Our installation team conducted a thorough assessment of the roof's structural integrity and orientation to determine the optimal placement for the 13 solar panels.

  2. Solar Panel Installation: The 13 all-black solar panels were securely mounted on the roof, strategically arranged to capture maximum sunlight. The panels were interconnected to form an efficient solar array.

  3. Inverter and Battery Setup: The 5kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter and the two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries were installed in the garage. The inverter was configured to manage the energy flow between the solar panels and batteries effectively.

  4. Wiring and Connection: The entire system was carefully wired to ensure optimal connectivity and efficiency. The solar panels were connected to the inverter, and the batteries were integrated into the system to store surplus energy.

  5. Testing and Commissioning: Rigorous testing was conducted to ensure all components were functioning correctly. The clients were provided with comprehensive training on monitoring and managing their solar PV system.

Benefits and Results:

The installation of the solar PV system brought several benefits to the clients:

  1. Increased Energy Independence: The combination of the 13 solar panels and the dual 5.12 kWh batteries provided the our clients with a higher degree of energy independence, allowing them to rely less on grid power.

  2. Enhanced Storage Capacity: The dual Sunsynk batteries offered substantial energy storage, ensuring a consistent power supply even during periods of low solar production or power outages.

  3. Financial Savings: By generating their own electricity, our clients experienced are now enjoying a significant reduction in their monthly electricity bills, resulting in long-term financial savings.

  4. Reduced Carbon Footprint: The solar PV system significantly decreased our client's reliance on traditional grid power, contributing to a reduction in their household carbon footprint.

  5. Home Value Enhancement: The addition of the solar PV system and advanced energy storage capabilities have been shown to increase a property's value by 4%, further benefiting our clients when the time comes to move home.

In conclusion, the installation of the solar PV system with thirteen all-black solar panels, a 5kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter, and two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries has empowered our clients with a sustainable and resilient energy solution for their home in Peterborough. The system aligns with their environmental values while providing practical and financial benefits for years to come.
