We install solar battery storage in Glasgow
You don’t need to install a battery for your solar panels to work, but a battery can help you get the most out of the energy your panels are generating.
Solar panels will create energy when there is daylight and you can use this solar electricity instead of buying it from your energy supplier. However, these panels don’t work at night time (when you tend to use the most energy). So, what happens then? If you don’t have a battery, you’ll switch back to using energy from the national grid – which will cost you money. If you have a battery installed, you can use any extra energy stored in the battery at night time. This reduces your reliance on the grid for electricity.
Help move towards a greener future
Solar technology has come a long way in the last 10 years. From the look and efficiency of the solar pv products to the popularity and priority that sustainability now has in our lives.
As the UK makes permanent moves away from fossil fuels, power outages are likely to become more frequent as our grid struggles under the pressure. Those with solar panels are far more likely to be less affected and those with solar and Tesla Powerwall, will enjoy seamless backup during outages.
By starting your solar journey, you’ll be creating your own electricity from a renewable energy source, ultimately reducing your carbon footprint.
Comon Solar Panel Installation FAQs
It’s normal to wonder about maintenance costs. Fortunately, once the solar panel installers have done their work, the panels do not require the extra cost of regular maintenance. An occasional rinse is sufficient to keep everything clear of dust and dirt.
You may also need to keep an eye out on nearby trees to make sure they don’t shade your panels.
For most homes, no. However, there are a few exceptions. If you live in a listed building, conservation area or national park, you may need to check with your local planning office.
The installation process itself usually takes only one to three days and is completed by a highly skilled team of in-house installers.
The more solar panels you have installed, the more energy they’ll be able to generate for your home. The number of solar panels you’ll need will depend on your energy usage, the number of people in your home and the size of your property. Smaller homes might need a 1kW system, with roof space for 8+ square metres of solar panels, while higher demand can be met with a 4kW system, but that would need 25+ square metres of space on your roof.
If you have an electric car, or are considering one, being able to charge it for free, reducing your fuel costs and impact on the planet, is possibly the biggest benefit on offer. Planning to power your home and electric car with solar energy will require a larger solar PV system, so it’s worth mentioning this to your installer.
When evaluating whether a full installation is right for your Glasgow property, we recommend evaluating a number of factors, including the following:
- Your electricity needs
- Your location in Glasgow
- Your budget
- Your concern for the environment
This is a highly individualised decision that also requires taking a look at how much electricity your household uses, the suitability of your roof, and the presence of nearby trees that can block the sun. For example, if you live in an area with frequent power outages, you could benefit from having access to excess electricity. You may want to consider other factors before you install solar panels, like available incentives and rebates, too.
All solar panel installation projects are different, so our team of solar panel installers will help you determine the best solution for your individual needs. Today, many homeowners opt for monocrystalline panels because they are a highly efficient renewable energy source and ideal for smaller roofs. We can also discuss other solar energy systems with you during a consultation.
The answer to this question is almost always yes. If you ever decide to sell your home, savvy homebuyers value having high-quality solar panels already installed on the roof space.
Though the two similar-sounding terms are often used by laypeople synonymously, they actually refer to different things regarding solar technology. Specifically, solar PV is an abbreviation of the term solar photovoltaic. This is more of an umbrella term that includes both the panels and various components associated with them, like inverters, mounting structures, wiring, and electrical systems. Whilst solar panels are a singular piece of the puzzle, solar PV systems refer to the entire solar energy system in your home or business.
