GreenGenUK complete 8kW solar PV install for Bodmin based customer

An 8kW Panasonic solar PV install in Bodmin

After providing a number of 4 and 8kW solar PV proposals, the customer chose to go ahead with an 8kW Panasonic proposal. As the PV system size is above the maximum permitted output, GreenGenUK guided and assisted the customer in obtaining the relevant Western Power permissions.

This 8kW solar PV system consists of:

32 Panasonic HIT N Series 240W Black solar panels
StecaGrid 3010W inverters
Elster/L&G generation metre
Schletter slate roof mounting kit
Solar iBoost

This 8kW system includes installation of a Solar iBoost. This technology enables any the generated solar energy that’s unused to be used to provide hot water. Doing this means the annual benefit of the solar installation is increased and the payback period reduced. These additional savings have not been included in the financial benefits found below.

As an MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited installer installing MCS accredited parts, the solar PV system fitted for the customer is eligible for 20 years of Feed-in Tariff payments.
