WHAT IS GRID CONNECTED SOLAR?
Grid Connected Inverter
A grid connected inverter efficiently converts solar electricity for use in your building and controls the flow of electricity between your home and the grid. It also stores and displays this information for you to view.
Solar Panels
Your solar panels will generate clean electricity from sunrise until sunset. The only required input is sunlight.
There are no moving parts, no emissions, no noise, and no fuel. Beautifully simple, reliable, and efficient.
No Changes
Your home electricity system stays the same and you can continue to use all of your appliances whenever you so desire. The only change you will notice is the reduction of your monthly power bill

DESIGNING YOUR SYSTEM
When designing a grid-connected home energy system to meet your requirements, there are a number of things to be taken into account, such as:
• The renewable resources available on your property
• Your annual energy requirements
• The design of your home
• Your budget
• Your power supplier
• Your expectations

ASSESSING THE SITE
Cellpower has a basic worksheet that we fill out. This will enable us to gather some of the required information. This is a site assessment form that gives us the details of the property’s location, the house design, your energy consumption and alternative energy sources in the area.
We also ask to see some of your old power bills to get an idea of your present energy consumption.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY
It is important to ensure that your home is energy efficient. This is to avoid the cost of installing a system that is larger than necessary And it is far cheaper to save power then to produce it

FINANCIAL VIABILITY
As well as reducing your monthly power bill, our grid connected energy systems will add value to your home.
Both of these factors should be taken into account when investigating the viability of implementing such a system.

POWER PRICES WILL KEEP RISING
Over the last 10 years power prices have increased at a rate of around 7.0% per year This needs to be taken into account when planning the future, and working out your payback, typically 7 to 9 years

RETURN ON INVESTMENT
The size of the solar system that you install will determine your Return on investment,which will generally range between 8% and 11%. One of the keys to return is the system size, it is all about what you can use during the day, as this is the best return, the return will lower the more you export. So every house can be differant. Commercial systems always have a better return as power use is mainly during the day
