Enhancing your solar PV with batteries means you can use your solar power during the evening and have a back-up supply.

Retrofit or new system...increased self use means increased savings!

Please contact us for more information

   

Retro-fitting Battery Back-up from only £1495

It is now possible to retro-fit battery back-up to existing solar PV systems. Whatever type of system you have we can now find you a set-up to meet your needs. When deciding what size back-up system you will need, the following points should be considered:
  • Solar PV system size and components.
  • How much electricity you use annually and the daily average.
  • Your typical power demand in the evenings.
  • Maximum power demand.
Below you will find retro-fit kits and prices, but please get in touch to ensure the design is suitable or needs adapting.

Why use batteries?

As people are faced with above inflation price hikes in energy costs by the major companies and publicity increases regarding the risks to future generation of electricity in the UK, those with solar PV arrays are looking into how to store the excess electricity generated by their systems.

Solar of course generates electricity during daylight hours but wouldn't it be wonderful if the excess energy could be stored up and used during the night-time hours. Well solar inverter manufacturers have recently started responding to growing demand from solar customers to be able to retro-fir batteries to use more of the electricity generated by their PV arrays.

We at Urban Solar are happy to let you know that we have retrofit battery backup options ready to offer.

To enable the battery option to fulfill customers needs we would also need to carry out modifications to the property's consumer unit. The consumer unit would need to be reconfigured so that high demand loads such as electric showers bypass the inverter/charger system altogether, but this wouldnt make any difference to the shower's ability to draw electricity from the PV array itself. Remaining circuits would split in the event of a power cut so that critical loads could be maintained above other less important electrical devices, for example the fridge freezer might be a device that you would want maintained. This part of the retrofit installation would amount to £100 on average depending on the complexity of the adjustment needed and would include labour and parts needed.
