WHY SOLAR PV

There is a growing trend to be energy self-sufficient but without the bother of being ‘off grid’ and at the mercy of the weather. To generate and use the energy yourself currently makes more financial sense than to sell back it to an energy company. With a few minor changes to how you run your home, for example running the dishwasher during the day instead of at night, and using the power generated you can reduce your bills significantly.

The current system in France is called ‘all grid tie’ or ‘all grid export’ and you sell back all the electricity you generate to EDF or other electricity company, often through a personal loan and contract. There are some disadvantages to this including the high initial cost of the equipment, the personal loan which will go with you when you move and some of the poorly installed systems which served to give the industry a bad name.

HOW YOU SAVE

  • reduce your electricity consumption and save on the unit price of electricity plus the additional 20-30% or so in charges
  • protect yourself from the inevitable future energy price rises (electricity prices are set to rise by 30% by 2016)
  • no need to take out complicated and expensive contracts with EDF partner companies
  • excellent 10 year manufactures warranty on German engineered panels and Inverters
  • industry leading 25 year performance power output warranty

There is also the fact that you will receive your normal bill and along with it the additional service charges that are included to the tune of around 20-30%. For every unit of electricity you generate yourself you will also be saving the service charges.

SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAICS PROVIDE AFFORDABLE, CLEAN AND GREEN
ENERGY FOR YOUR HOME.

Our PV packages consist of a number of high quality elements manufactured in Germany and include the kit, cable, monitors and meters necessary to get you generating your own electricity. We have 2 sized kits depending on your family size and needs and on survey we will install a monitor for you so you can see exactly what your household requirements are and how much you could save.

The inverter is a clever bit of kit and will be set up to ensure that the household appliances etc. are prioritised to use the PV generated power. If you need more power it will be drawn from the grid as usual. If you generate more power than you need at any one time there are additions to the standard kit such as the SOLIC-200 which you may want to consider to maximise your use of the power. However, you will not be selling any over production back to EDF - in effect it will be lost. As a compensation for this we have kept our kits simple and prices keen.

The Inverter includes all the safety controls required so that you do not have to inform EDF of your system (apart to adjust your monthly payments!).

All systems are normally roof mounted and the roof fixing systems and rails are all included but options for flat roofs and ground mounting are available.

Array formations - the panels can be orientated vertically or horizontally and how they are situated on your roof will be determined in the main by the dimensions and size of the roof.  Array formations of 2 rows of 6 or 7 panels or 3 rows of 3 or 4 panels for example will be determined on survey.

Please note that for the best performance you should have a roof of at least 15/20 degrees pitch which is South or SW facing and is shade free. Even the partial shade from a chimney may have an effect.

We can also put together any other sized package to suit your circumstances - just give us a call. Please contact us for price details for all system packages as we will endeavour to get the best price at the time of request.

The survey will determine the number and orientation of the panels on your roof along with your preference for an ‘in roof’ or ‘on roof’ system. It is not normally necessary to scaffold your building unless it is particularly high or the access is difficult. A typical installation will take 3-4 days to complete and Ecopower will arrange all stages and liaise with the electrician to make final connections and all other necessary trades.

We can currently carry out installations in the Poitou Charentes Region, the Dordogne and surrounding departments. For all other areas please contact us.
