Frequently asked questions

Is it possible to expand the size of my system in the future?

 Yes, many solar systems are designed with expandability in mind. You can often add more solar panels to your existing system to increase its capacity if your energy needs grow.

Do solar panels work during blackout?

Standard grid-tied solar systems are designed to shut down during a blackout for safety reasons. However, you can install a battery backup system to provide power during outages.

How do I check the performance of my solar system?

You can monitor your system’s performance through the inverter or a dedicated monitoring system. These tools provide real-time data on energy production.

How do I find out how much I pay for electricity?

Your electricity bill from your utility company will detail your energy consumption and the associated costs.

How long does an average installation take?

An average solar installation typically takes anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on system size and complexity.

How long is the wait between booking and installation?

The wait time can vary depending on factors like installer availability and local permitting. It’s best to check with your chosen solar provider for a more specific estimate

How much roof space is required?

The amount of roof space needed depends on your energy goals and the efficiency of your chosen solar panels. A professional installer can determine the precise requirements during an assessment.

What are the financial benefits of solar energy?

Solar energy can lead to reduced electricity bills, potential income from selling excess energy back to the grid, and various tax incentives and rebates.

What kind of maintenance is required to keep the Solar PV System in good working order?

Solar panels are generally low-maintenance. Periodic cleaning, inverter checks, and visual inspections are usually sufficient. Most solar systems come with warranties that cover maintenance.

Is the efficiency of a Solar PV System affected by the outside temperature?

Solar panels can be less efficient in extremely hot temperatures, but modern panels are designed to handle temperature variations well. Cold temperatures can actually improve panel efficiency slightly.

What impact does shade have on a solar PV system's performance?

Shade can significantly reduce the output of solar panels. It’s important to minimize shading to ensure optimal performance. Shade-tolerant systems or micro-inverters can mitigate this issue.

On a cloudy day, what happens to electricity production?

Solar panels still produce electricity on cloudy days, but at a reduced rate compared to sunny days. The decrease in production varies depending on cloud cover and panel efficiency.
