Introduction:

Our clients embarked on a comprehensive home renovation project in Peterborough, aiming to modernise their residence, bringing it in line with their aesthetic style, creating a more family-friendly space, and making it more energy-efficient. As part of the renovation, they decided to incorporate a solar PV system with 20 all-black integrated solar panels, an 8kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter, and two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries. This installation was strategically planned during the replacement of the roof, allowing for the integration of in-roof solar panels to complement the overall aesthetic of their newly renovated home.


System Design and Selection:

  • Integrated Solar Panels: The 20 all-black integrated solar panels were selected for their seamless integration into the roof structure, providing an aesthetically pleasing and modern look.

  • Inverter and Batteries: An 8kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter and two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries were chosen to efficiently manage the solar energy production and storage, ensuring a reliable and sustainable power supply.


Installation Process:

The solar PV system installation was seamlessly integrated into the full home renovation project, taking advantage of the roof replacement to install the in-roof solar panels. The installation process included the following key steps:

  1. Roof Replacement Planning: The roof replacement was strategically planned to accommodate the installation of the integrated solar panels. This involved collaboration between the roofing and our solar installation teams to ensure a smooth and integrated process.

  2. Integrated Solar Panel Installation: The 20 all-black integrated solar panels were seamlessly installed into the newly replaced roof, creating a visually appealing and cohesive integration with the modernised home design.

  3. Inverter and Battery Setup: The 8kW Sunsynk hybrid inverter and two 5.12 kWh Sunsynk batteries were installed in a designated utility space within the client's home. The inverter was configured to efficiently manage the energy flow between the integrated solar panels and batteries.

  4. Full System Testing: Rigorous testing was conducted to ensure the proper functionality of the entire solar PV system. The clients were provided with comprehensive training on monitoring and managing their new solar system.


Benefits and Results:

The installation of the solar PV system as part of the full home renovation brought numerous benefits to our clients:

  1. Aesthetic Integration: The all-black integrated solar panels seamlessly blended into the roof, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the modernized home without compromising energy efficiency.

  2. Energy Efficiency: The 20 integrated solar panels, coupled with the 8kW inverter and dual 5.12 kWh batteries, significantly increased the energy efficiency of the client's home.

  3. Reduced Energy Costs: The solar PV system led to a substantial reduction in our client's monthly electricity bills, resulting in long-term financial savings.

  4. Reliable Power Supply: The combination of the hybrid inverter and batteries ensured a consistent power supply, even during periods of low solar production or power outages.
