10 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your Solar Installation

Our Team

1. Using your appliances during the day improves efficiency

While this might seem common, but if you can take full advantage of power in daylight, it would be the efficient way to spend the power produced. Heavy power consumption appliances like the dishwasher, dryer and washing machines can be used during the day.

2. Understanding your power consumption habits

By assessing how much power you use per day, you can easily tweak your power consumption and consecutively improve your Feed-in-tariff rates.

3. Check for potential shade on your solar panels

Solar panels fundamentally work with the power of the sun, any shade or obstacle to the sun will make power production difficult. Cleaning your panels, moving trees, or any other temporary structure away from the solar panels will provide maximum efficiency.

4. Switch to electric boilers!

Instantaneous electric water heaters heating of water closer to the tap. This means the water temperature can be adjusted manually to perfect temperature you desire. During the seasons like spring and summer, your solar power can totally take over the water heating part.

5. Avoid putting appliances and devices on standby

Electrical devices have a standby mode which prep them up for quick use. But they consume power even when they not in use and on standby. Disabling standby mode or turning off an appliance after usage saves a lot of power and thus stores more in the batteries.

6. Switch to electric vehicles

Electric vehicles as environmentally friendly and leave a smaller carbon footprint than vehicles that use conventional fuel. Using electric vehicles also means that you can charge for free on your solar power system which saves your fuel money.

7. Energy storage systems

While solar energy can reduce your power bills by supplying power from the sun, it does not fully compensate all your power needs, unless you use a battery system. A solar energy storage system can reduce your dependency on conventional power grid as much as 90 percent.

8. Staggering device usage

Use heavy power consumption devices all at one consumes more power than that is produced by the solar panels. If 3 heavy machines are run at the same time, it leads to additional power consumption and consecutively bigger bills. Running devices one at a time will help in managing the power consumption.

9. Use smart appliances and LED lights

Use heavy power consumption devices all at one consumes more power than that is produced by the solar panels. If 3 heavy machines are run at the same time, it leads to additional power consumption and consecutively bigger bills. Running devices one at a time will help in managing the power consumption.

10.  Go for non-electrical alternatives wherever possible

While we’re quite dependent on day today activities for electricity, try to go for alternatives and other non-conventional tools and appliances that doesn’t use electricity.
