We were appointed by Mr J to install a 10 KW, 34 panel solar PV system to be connected to a 3 phase power supply at the property. The large south facing roof and power supply, subsequently, made solar PV an obvious option. Mr. J was also interested in finding out more information regarding battery storage units.
We explained that by their nature solar PV systems produce the majority of electricity during the day time and in the summer. Conversely, electricity consumption will be highest after dark and during the winter. This mismatch meant that, if Mr J wanted to increase his renewable energy base, he needed to take steps to store energy at the point of production (during peak generation) for use when he need it (during peak demand). Concurrently, this maximises self-consumption and, subsequently reduces his energy bills too.
A PV system is a generator, and Mr J liked the idea of being able to store his excess electricity for later use, or, alternatively releasing it onto the grid when there is real demand.
JM’s Renewable Solution
Therfore, we recommended and installed 3 x LG Chem 6.5 kwh Battery Storage units. The solar pv system will feed 3 x Goodwee hybrid inverters each supplying 1 battery storage unit.
