At Solar Living we pride ourselves on supplying high quality products. Whether you’re looking to save the environment, save money or get a return on your investment we will have the correct system to match! With over 400 installs we boast a variety of top quality installs that cover small domestic installs up to large commercial installations.

 

Here is a quick overview of some of the products we have installed:

 

Solar Panels

Sunpower Solar Panels Logo

SunPower

SunPower are based in the US. They are known as the global leader in PV design and manufacture with over 450 patents. Their panels are used in both domestic and commercial installations due to the panels being able to generate approximately 30% more energy than your standard conventional solar panel. The SunPower E20 is the most efficient panel in the UK market today.
The sleek design of the SunPower module allows great performance and aesthetics whilst using limited space. SunPower currently have the best module efficiency.
Warranty: SunPower are offering an 87% power output after 25 years, and a 25 year product warranty.

Panasonic Solar Panels Logo

Panasonic

We have been installing Panasonic modules since early 2011. The quality of the Panasonic module is only rivalled to the SunPower panel. Panasonic also manufacturer an extensive range of air to air and air to water heat pumps that qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. They guarantee high performance for both products.

When installation a solar system we understand that it is a long-term and high value investment. We want to make the system suit the customer which is why choosing the correct panel to match your criteria is important. When choosing which module to install which will give you reliability guarantee and which you can trust. Panasonic has more than three decades of experience in the solar technology market and continue to innovate the solar market.

As a market-leading brand in heat pumps too, Panasonic will give you a reliability guarantee and offer confidence with the ease of installation coupled with excellent after-sales including its established heat pump installer PRO Club.

The Panasonic Aquarea range is far cleaner, safer, cheaper and environmentally friendly than alternatives using gas, oil and other electrical systems.

Solar Inverters

SMA Solar Inverters Logo

SMA

SMA is the world’s largest producer of solar inverters for PV systems. As market leader they are setting numerous benchmarks for other manufacturers to reach. The most recent benchmark is an inverter that is 98% efficient that ensures maximum yield with great user convenience!

Much like the ABB inverter, SMA has a range of inverters to accommodate every size system. The range starts at 1.2kW for small domestic installations and grows to larger commercial installations. For industrial scale installs they offer a central inverter. The SMA range includes newly developed lighter and more efficient high frequency (HF) and transformerless products (-TL).

All SMA inverters support a range of optional display and monitoring accessories which allows the customer to immerse themselves into a visualization of their system that Solar Living will help to set-up!

ABB Solar Inverters Logo

ABB

ABB has one of the widest portfolios of solar inverters ranging from small micro-inverters and three-phase string inverters up to megawatt-sized central inverters. This extensive range of inverters is suitable from small domestic installs up to large commercial plants. The inverter is also complimented with various options to monitor each solar system on site or remotely which allows the customer to maximise the return on your investment.

ABB solar inverters utilize over 40 years of experience and advances made in inverter and power converter technology that have contributed to ABB becoming the world leader in frequency converters, and also one of the largest suppliers of wind turbine converters.

Solar Edge SolarEdge Logo

SolarEdge

The SolarEdge portfolio of products includes a variety of high quality options. This would include power optimisers, high efficient PV inverters and a web platform for module-level monitoring and fault detection. The SolarEdge system is fantastic at harvesting more solar power from any PV system by removing known system constraints that are found in your standard PV installation.

SolarEdge Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter has been specifically designed to work alongside the optimisers. Because of the voltage management and MPPT are handled by the optimiser, the inverters only focus is on the DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty which can then be extended to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature.

 

The capability of the SolarEdge inverter is fantastic and with the introduction of battery storage systems can be adapted to store energy as part of the StorEdge system!

SolarEdge Power Optimiser

The SolarEdge power optimiser is a DC/DC converter which is mounted on each individual solar panel. The SolarEdge power optimiser increases energy output of your system by consistently tracking each module and finding the maximum power point (MPPT). Whilst doing this, it is transferring data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal which allows easy cost-effective module level maintenance.  Every optimiser is equipped with a safety feature known as the SafeDC™ which will automatically show down the modules DC voltage if the inverter or grid power is shut down unnecessarily. SolarEdge offer a variety of different sized optimisers which will suit each and every module on the market.

SolarEdge PV Monitoring Platform

As mentioned above, the SolarEdge system is an easily accessible cloud-based platform that provides extensive monitoring. The platform can provide immediate alerts directly to the customer if any problems occur with the system and allows for on-site and remote troubleshooting.
