A battery will store your solar power

You don’t need to install a battery for your solar panels to work, but a battery can help you get the most out of the energy your panels are generating.

Solar panels will create energy when there is daylight and you can use this solar electricity instead of buying it from your energy supplier. However, these panels don’t work at night time (when you tend to use the most energy). So, what happens then? If you don’t have a battery, you’ll switch back to using energy from the national grid – which will cost you money. If you have a battery installed, you can use any extra energy stored in the battery at night time. This reduces your reliance on the grid for electricity.

Comon Solar Panel Installation FAQs

There’s no annual maintenance or service required. You may want to give your panels an occasional rinse with a hose to get rid of any dirt or dust. You may also need to keep an eye out on nearby trees to make sure they don’t shade your panels.

For most homes, no.  However, there are a few exceptions. If you live in a listed building, conservation area or national park, you may need to check with your local planning office.

The installation process itself usually takes only one to three days and is completed by a highly skilled team of in-house installers.

The more solar panels you have installed, the more energy they’ll be able to generate for your home. The number of solar panels you’ll need will depend on your energy usage, the number of people in your home and the size of your property. Smaller homes might need a 1kW system, with roof space for 8+ square metres of solar panels, while higher demand can be met with a 4kW system, but that would need 25+ square metres of space on your roof.

If you have an electric car, or are considering one, being able to charge it for free, reducing your fuel costs and impact on the planet, is possibly the biggest benefit on offer. Planning to power your home and electric car with solar energy will require a larger solar PV system, so it’s worth mentioning this to your installer.
