Solar PV

How Solar PV can benefit you...

At Total Renewable Solutions we believe in only installing the best products from reliable manufacturers that offer products which will perform to only the highest standards and offer good warranty’s.

Solar PV is a system that uses daylight to generate electricity(DC), we use inverters to convert the energy produced by the Solar panels to electricity that can be used in the household(AC). As a homeowner you will then benefit from the savings on your electricity and by using higher power devices during the day, you can make a very big saving on your bills. It is our goal to install systems that look aesthetically pleasing without compromising efficiency. We monitor over 60 of our customers installations remotely giving them piece of mind that if an error occurs, we are on hand to support them.

The Advantages of a Solar PV System

  • Sustainable energy consumption
  • Reduces energy bills
  • Energy storage options are available
  • Low maintenence costs
  • Protection against rising energy costs
  • System life 20yrs
  • Free hot water to your immersion heater
  • Guaranteed system

Is my property suitable for solar PV panels?

Most people think that Solar PV is only suitable for a south facing roof to ensure maximum efficiency and electricity generation. The direction your home faces certainly does help, but most domestic roofs are actually suitable for the installation of Solar Panels. East or West facing properties only lose around 15% of the output they would generate if their house was facing due south.

Other things to consider are do you have enough space on your roof for the panels themselves? Is your roof structurally sound and do you have space somewhere within the property to house the inverter? Our expert surveyors will be able to help you with this and talk you through the process of installation and the likely return you will achieve.

Solar Edge Inverters

Who we work with

We now fit solar immersion heating devices such as Immersun which use any excess electricity generated at any given time to be diverted to your immersion heater allowing you to heat your water at no cost.

We are also accredited to supply and install the Stor-Edge system from Solar Edge and Tesla. Our staff were amongst the first in the country on the Tesla installation training. We can design a storage system to suit your needs whether you are a new customer that requires Solar PV or you already have a PV system and wish to look into the possibility of storage. Call our office and we will be more than happy to carry out a site visit. We will be honest, if we think your property is not in the best location, we will let you know your options.

How Solar PV Panels work

PV panels are constructed from photovoltaic cells. These cells contain layers of semi-conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced as direct current (DC) which, by means of an inverter, is changed to AC current which can be used in your home to power appliances and lighting.These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day
The power of a PV cell is measured in kilowatts peak (kWp). That’s the rate at which it generates energy at peak performance in full direct sunlight during the summer.
