A 7.3kW Solar PV System Installation in Mansfield

Project Overview:

  • Location: Mansfield, United Kingdom

  • Project Type: Residential Solar PV System Installation with Bird Protection

  • System Components:

    • 17x All-black Jinko Solar Panels

    • 5kW Sunsynk Hybrid Inverter

    • 2x 5.12kWh Sunsynk Batteries

    • Mesh Bird Protection for all panels


Introduction:

Our clients, residents of a detached home in Mansfield, UK, were committed to adopting sustainable practices and reducing their carbon footprint.

Our Head of Solar designed their solar PV system to maximise the roof space on the property, including the main building, as well as their garage roof.

After assessing the property and their electric usage, we were able to advise them on a system comprising of seventeen all-black solar panels, a 5kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter, two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries, and mesh bird protection for all panels.


System Design and Selection:

  • Solar Panels: The installation included 17 all-black solar panels known for their high efficiency and aesthetic appeal. The panels were strategically positioned on the roof to capture optimal sunlight 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 integrated into the system to store excess energy for use during low solar production periods or in case of power outages.

  • Bird Protection Mesh: Mesh bird protection was incorporated to safeguard the solar panels from potential bird nesting, ensuring the longevity and efficiency of the system.

Installation Process:

Our team of skilled, MCS certified technicians undertook the installation process, paying attention to both the solar PV components and the bird protection measures. The installation process included the following key steps:

  1. Solar Panel Installation: The 17 all-black solar panels were securely mounted on the roof, spaced appropriately to allow for effective bird protection mesh installation. The panels were interconnected to create an efficient solar array.

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

  3. Bird Protection Installation: Mesh bird protection was carefully installed around all the solar panels, creating a barrier that prevented birds from nesting and causing damage to the panels.

  4. Testing and Commissioning: The entire system, including the bird protection measures, underwent rigorous testing to ensure proper functionality. Our clients were provided with comprehensive training on monitoring and managing their solar PV system.

Benefits and Results:

The solar PV system installation with bird protection brought numerous benefits :

  1. Energy Independence: The combination of 17 solar panels and dual 5.12 kWh batteries provided our clients with increased energy independence, reducing their reliance on the grid.

  2. Financial Savings: The solar PV system has led to a significant reduction in our client's monthly electricity bills, resulting in long-term financial savings.

  3. Reduced Carbon Footprint: By generating their own clean energy, and significantly reducing their use of grid power, our clients have been able to reduce their household carbon footprint.

  4. Extended Panel Lifespan: The bird protection mesh safeguards the solar panels, preventing damage from bird activities and potentially extending the lifespan of the panels.

  5. Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: The all-black solar panels, in addition to being efficient, contributed to the visual aesthetics of the client's home, in fact, they've mentioned to us that several neighbours have commented on the modern look of the panels.
