• Do I need to change my electricity meter to an export meter if I have Solar Panels?
  • If you want to be paid for any the excess electricity you generate you will need to have a smart meter, most electricity suppliers are installing them free of charge for their customers if you don’t already have one
  • Will my Solar Panels work when there is a power cut?
  • If there is a power cut your inverter will switch off, which stops any generation from your Solar Panels entering the property. This is a safety feature to protect workers who may be repairing the grid. However, we can install a back-up system which will enable you to use your solar energy in a power cut.
  • If I have Solar Panels can I come off grid?
  • Solar PV panels alone will not give you electricity 24 hours a day as they only produce electricity in daylight hours. You would need alternative energy sources or a battery system as well as Solar PV panels to be able to come off grid.
  • How do Solar Panels connect to the electrical supply in my home?
  • The electricity produced by your Solar Panels is converted from DC (direct current) by the inverter to AC (alternating current), which your home is run on. The electricity is then taken from the inverter via an AC cable to your distribution board, where it is used to power the circuits in your home.
  • Is there a danger my Solar Panels will blow off the roof during a storm?
  • It?s highly unlikely, when we install the Solar PV panels we make sure they are securely attached to the fabric of the building using a roof hook and rail system. Our panels are always mounted at least 30cm in from the edge of the roof to prevent excessive wind loading. In the hurricane force winds of February 2014 not a single SUNDTA installed Solar panel blew off a roof.
  • What are bifacial solar panels?
  • Bifacial solar panels not only generate energy from the side facing the light but the back too, which makes them able to deliver your home with more energy than a conventional solar panel.
  • What on going service and maintenance do Solar Panels require?
  • It is recommended that your Solar Panels are checked and serviced every 2 years. We offer a standard service and maintenance package, which your local office can advise you on.
  • Do Solar Panels need cleaning?
  • Solar panels are generally self-cleaning if positioned at an angle of over 15 degrees. However it is advised to visually inspect them annually and rinse if necessary. Most window-cleaning companies have a reach-and-wash system and should be able to clean your panels.
