Our Solar Panel Add-Ons
At Elec-Tech, we understand the critical role that inverters play in maximizing the efficiency and performance of your solar panel system.
Our range of advanced fox inverters has been meticulously selected to complement your renewable energy setup and ensure optimal power conversion.
By converting the direct current (DC) produced by your solar panels into usable alternating current (AC), our inverters seamlessly integrate with your home's electrical grid.
Elec-Tech is proud to offer cutting-edge diverters as a valuable addition to your solar panel system.
Diverters enable you to harness surplus solar energy that your household might not immediately consume. Instead of allowing excess energy to go unused, our diverters intelligently redirect it toward alternative purposes.
This might include heating water, charging electric vehicles, or powering other energy-intensive appliances.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Are Solar Panels Fixed To My Roof?There are two types of solar installation, integrated and fixed rack/ rail mounted. The mounting option typically requires less intrusive work to your existing roof, whilst integrated solutions are fitted almost flush to surrounding tiles and altogether remove the potential for bird infestations.
What Do I Need To Get The Most Out Of Solar Panels?Ideally, you need a southeast to southwest-facing roof to benefit from Solar panels. However, with the latest technology, most homes can benefit from Solar PV. You’ll need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and a rating of D or above to qualify for a Smart Export Guarantee which allows you to be paid for the electricity you supply to the grid. All electricity providers have a different rate they will pay for electricity exported back to the grid.
Do Solar Panels Need Cleaning?The solar panels themselves are designed to be self-cleaning. However, over a period of time, their performance can be affected by a build-up of debris. We would recommend that the panels should be cleaned on a yearly basis. This should be carried out by personnel who are suitably qualified to work at height, or with equipment which would enable the cleaning to be carried out from ground level.
Do Solar Panels Mean I Can Live Off Grid?No. Solar panels only produce electricity during daylight hours. To live off-grid, you need a battery system to store your solar power for nighttime electricity. There are battery options with off-grid features so when there is a power cut you can still run items within your property.
How Long Do Solar Panels Last?Solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25-30 years. While their efficiency decreases gradually over time, most panels still produce around 80-85% of their initial power output after 25 years.
