Project Date: September 2022
Installed Capacity: 5.775 kWp
In Esher, Surrey, a forward-thinking homeowner sought to harness solar energy to power their residence sustainably. With the objective of reducing electricity bills and contributing to a greener environment, the homeowner opted for a cutting-edge solar installation solution. This case study highlights the successful implementation of a solar system featuring 15 high-efficiency JA Solar 385W panels, Solion Ballasted Mounting, SolarEdge 5kW EV inverter, optimizers, and SolarEdge Battery Banks.
Solar Panels: 15 x JA Solar 385W panels were strategically positioned on the rooftop, maximizing sunlight capture and energy production.
Mounting System: Solion SunMount ballast bins were employed to securely install the solar panels, ensuring durability and stability under diverse weather conditions. Solion bins are also non-penetrative and low ballast due to their unique design.
Inverter and Optimizers: A SolarEdge 5kW EV inverter, coupled with optimizers, efficiently converted DC electricity to usable AC power. The optimizers optimized each panel’s output, ensuring maximum efficiency even in partial shading scenarios.
Energy Storage: A SolarEdge 10 kWh Battery Bank was integrated into the system, offering a robust energy storage solution. This battery stores surplus energy during the day, allowing the homeowner to utilize it during evenings, ensuring a reliable power supply.
Performance and Benefits
Energy Generation: The 5.775 kWp solar system generats a substantial amount of electricity, significantly reducing the homeowner’s reliance on the grid-generated power.
Efficiency and Optimization: Solar Edge optimizers ensured each panel operated at peak efficiency, maximizing energy production even in partially shaded conditions.
Financial Savings: By generating their own electricity, the homeowner experienced substantial reductions in their electricity bills, leading to long-term financial savings.
This installation stands as a testament to the synergy of high-efficiency JA Solar panels, Solion mounting technology, and Solar Edge components. Not only has the homeowner significantly reduced their carbon footprint, but they have also embraced a sustainable energy solution that offers reliable power, financial savings, and a greener future for their home in Esher, Surrey.
