Can I install the system in my backyard?
This situation may vary depending on current laws and regulations, but generally, for residential On-Grid systems, they can typically be installed only on the roof of your properly permitted building, unless otherwise specified.
I live in an apartment; can a solar energy system be installed, and is it feasible?
Yes, indeed, installing a solar energy system in apartment buildings is a complex process that involves roof suitability, local permits, and cost-sharing among other factors. Approval from neighbors and the apartment management is typically required as well.
Can I sell the excess generated energy?
Yes, in some areas, if you meet the necessary conditions and zoning requirements and have the required battery storage, there may be an opportunity to sell excess generated energy back to the grid or use it as a credit. However, this is subject to local regulations.
Can I supply energy from the solar energy system when grid power is cut off?
Yes, solar energy systems can generate and use energy when the grid is down, but the system requires a stable voltage source to operate. This voltage can be supplied from batteries or a generator.
Can I completely isolate from the grid and rely solely on solar energy?
Yes, with a suitable solar energy system and energy storage solution, you can provide independent power without relying on the grid. These systems are commonly referred to as Off-Grid systems in the industry.
What maintenance and repair needs can the installed system generate?
A solar energy system may require periodic maintenance such as panel cleaning, inverter maintenance, and cable checks. Expert advice and regular inspections are important to ensure the system operates efficiently and reliably.
How do I determine my energy needs, and how does it affect the size of my solar energy system?
To determine your energy needs, consider your monthly electricity bill and your daily activities. Optimize your lighting and appliances to use more energy during daylight hours. You should select the size of your solar energy system based on your daily energy consumption. Expert consultation is important in this process.
Which solar energy equipment should I choose, and why is their quality important?
Selecting high-quality solar panels, inverters, and mounting equipment is important. Quality equipment operates more efficiently and preserves your long-term investment.
What are the advantages of working with a professional installation company, and how should this process be managed?
ISOS Energy, by accurately analyzing your needs and capabilities, helps you choose the most suitable system and products for you. They ensure smooth integration with legal compliance, proper engineering, and careful installation.
How should the maintenance and monitoring of my solar energy system be done, and why is this process important?
The performance of the system and potential alerts are monitored 24/7 through mobile and desktop applications that may vary depending on the inverter brand used in the system. Based on this data, regular panel cleaning, inverter checks, and performance monitoring are conducted to maintain system efficiency and prevent issues.
What is the average payback period for the system?
The payback period for a solar energy system typically ranges from 2 to 10 years. This duration depends on factors such as system cost, system efficiency, local energy prices, the user's rate of benefit from the system, and incentives.
