Project Details

  • Location: Penzance, Cornwall
  • Property Type: New build residential
  • System Components:
  • Solar Panels: 14 JA Solar Mono All Black 405W panels
  • Inverter: GivEnergy 5kW Hybrid Inverter
  • Mounting System: Schletter/Renusol Mounting System
  • Power Diverter: MyEnergi Eddi
  • Electric Vehicle Charger: MyEnergi Zappi
  • Battery Storage: GivEnergy 9.5kWh Battery

Installation Process

The installation process began with a comprehensive assessment of the property’s energy needs and optimal placement for the solar panels. The 14 JA Solar Mono All Black 405W panels were installed on the roof using the Schletter/Renusol Mounting System. Ensuring a secure and efficient setup. The GivEnergy 5kW Hybrid Inverter was then integrated to manage the conversion of solar energy into usable electricity for the home.

The homeowner then opted for a MyEnergi Eddi and Zappi. The MyEnergi Zappi is a high-tech Electric Vehicle (EV) charger with the key benefit of seamless integration with solar PV. Making it an essential choice for this hybrid solar PV and GivEnergy battery installation. The smart modes of the Zappi Charger optimise electricity usage, ensuring cost-effective charging for the EV while maintaining a fully charged battery. Along with the Zappi, the homeowner also chose to install a MyEnergi Eddi, allowing them to maximise the use of the 100% green energy produced by their solar PV system. Instead of exporting surplus energy back to the grid, the intelligent power diverter redirects this excess energy to the heating systems. This way, they can heat water using entirely self-generated green energy, optimising their renewable energy usage.

Completing this installation is the GivEnergy 9.5kWh battery. With this home battery storage system, the homeowner can store up free energy from their solar PV or use the grid to charge their battery overnight when energy costs are lower.

Outcomes and Benefits

The hybrid solar PV and battery storage system delivered several significant benefits to the homeowners. It greatly reduced their reliance on the grid, promoting energy independence and security. Utilising self-generated solar energy and storing excess power, the system also led to a considerable reduction in electricity bills, offering substantial cost savings. The environmental impact was notable, as the system maximised the use of renewable energy. Thereby reducing the property’s carbon footprint and contributing to a greener environment. Additionally, the installation of advanced renewable energy technologies enhanced the property’s value and appeal.
