Is Your Solar System Under-Performing? Has Your Warranty Expired? In Need of a Health Check or Upgrade?
EEC home Improvements have the complete solution for under-performing Solar Systems. Including Solar Edge, PV Plus – we can even take over warranties from companies who have ceased trading!
Why Retrofit to your Solar System?
Many home & business owners have under-performing systems over the course of their lifetimes, this can be due to many reasons. If you think your system is under-performing this could be costing you in lost energy and revenue.
However, your system might be over performing, but with new and improved technologies your system could be enhanced, to perform even better.
Some common factors which can effect under-performing systems are – partial shading, a variance in temperature, uneven soiling, manufacturing tolerances and faults within the system these can all impact on your systems performance in-turn your money.
The uneven aging rate of modules (module mismatch) also reduces the return on investment of a PV system year after year.
Ways to Improve Your System…..
Did You Know You Can Improve Your System by up to 25% with SolarEdge Optimisation?
That’s right, this technology can improve your systems performance up to a massive 25%! By installing SolarEdge Optimisers • Each Panel can work to it’s maximum potential • Shading and Soiling of 1 module won’t effect the whole system • Say Goodbye to Mismatched Currents • Panels will work independently of each other, ensuring the whole string isn’t affected PLUS SolarEdge work on any system (6 panels or above) whether installed by EEC or NOT!
Buy Installing SolarEdge Power Optimisers you can get the most out of your system. The DC/DC converter is connected by installers to each PV module or embedded by module manufacturers, replacing the traditional solar junction box. The SolarEdge power optimizers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each module individually.
You Can Also Remotely Monitor Your System with Solar Edge
The web-based SolarEdge monitoring portal allows home and business owners to watch their systems performance and provides enhanced PV performance monitoring and yield assurance through immediate fault detection and alerts at module level, string level and system level.
Using the app is easy and you can access it remotely which means no hardware or wiring is required to transmit data from the power optimizers to the inverter: the monitoring sensors and transmitters are built into the SolarEdge power optimizer and/or solar inverter which EEC will install for you, and measurement data is transmitted through regular power lines.
So if your not internet or smartphone / tablet savvy, don’t worry the SolarEdge system is easy to use.
PV Plus Booster
Solar PV Plus Boosters
The new PV plus means a faster return on investment for both new and existing solar installations. The booster can be used to monitor the incoming supply voltage, the PV plus unit allows the Solar PV inverter (whatever the model) to compliantly stay in circuit for longer, preventing any over voltage shut down. The PV plus can reduce stress through voltage overheating and increase PV generation. This provides a much faster return of investment for existing and new systems alike.
How does the PV Plus work?
Typically Solar PV systems have to increase by 4 volts in order to push the generated energy around the property and what energy isn’t used is pushed back to the grid.
In some cases the increase in voltage can cause the solar inverter to prematurely shut down. The PV plus allow you to monitor the voltage to the inverter and compliantly stay in circuit longer, preventing any potential shutdowns and increasing generation.
EEC’s surveyors can test the voltage of your system for new or existing customers.
Has Your Existing Installer Ceased Training
We Can Take Over Any Warranties for Solar Companies who are No Longer Trading.
It’s no secret that many solar companies stopped trading in recent years, mostly down to the dramatic reductions in feed-in-tariff by the UK Government. Many companies found it too difficult to stay a-float and ceased trading.
EEC have stood defiant in every FIT reduction and still believe Solar as a great investment for UK Home and Business Owners, EEC are still helping thousands ok UK customers reap the benefits of having solar panels with returns still reaching up to 10% net.
Established since 1991, EEC continuously follow market trends and now have firm hands on the solar battery storage industry, SolarEdge, Solar BuyBack and other popular renewable energy sectors.
EEC can take over any warranties you may have with ceased companies, we can also help you with any maintenance and repairs on your solar system.
Many people may find when they are required to go directly to the manufacturers or supplier they are given the ‘run around‘ and find the task somewhat frustrating. EEC can take over this frustration for you, we can deal with the manufacturers or suppliers and take the headache away.
If you have any questions about your warranty or where you stand as your installer is no longer trading, don’t hesitate to contact us today for free no obligation advise.
How to Check if Your Solar Installer is Still Trading
Many customers we talk to on a daily basis advise that their original installer is simply uncontactable, if this is something you have experienced there are some ways you can check if your installer may still be trading;
- You can search company names at www.companycheck.co.uk and see if they have registered any trading changes if they’re a limited company (with the letters ‘Ltd’ or ‘Plc’ after their name)*
- You can search the Insolvency Register if they’re an individual (a sole trader) or a partnership – search both the name of the person and their trading name*
- Check the companies Social Media accounts to see if there has been any recent activity, you can do this by Googling “‘Company Name ‘Facebook‘” or “‘Company Name ‘Twitter‘” or any other social media services
- Try to contact the (company’s) customer service department, not the advisor you originally purchased the system from, if the company has stopped trading they may still have someone handling customer services
- It would also be advisable to contact Citizens Advice Bureau
