What happens if we move from the property?
The ownership of the PV system is directly linked to the property, not the occupant. If you decide to move house all of the benefits of the PV system will be passed on to the new owners.
How long will my system last for?
Are the panels or my roof damaged by strong wind or hail?
Will I still have electricity if there is a power cut?
How will I know what my PV system is generating?
The generation meter will display the number of units that has been generated by the system since its commissioning date, this is also where you take your readings for the Feed-in Tariff (Pre 2019). For a more in depth idea of production over different time periods most inverters will have an LCD display or wireless connectivity so that you are able to download detailed information. We are an approved GivEnergy installer which offer up a wider range of data and present it in an easy to interpret way.
Do I need a special meter?
As part of the MCS requirements for a PV system it is necessary to install a generation meter so that the production of electricity (kWh’s) can be recorded and generation of the system metered. You will also need a SMART energy meter to be eligible for export payments, these meters are upgraded by your energy provider.
