Benefits of SolarEdge upgrades

SolarEdge upgrades are so often associated with mis-selling by the “call centre” solar sellers. Often their approach is “your installer has gone out of business”, “we are working on behalf of MCS”, “your system is out of warranty” amongst others. However there are many occasions when these upgrades are justified.

We recently carried one out replacing a faulty 6yr old single tracker string inverter on 3 roofs & it is already paying dividends for the client.

The client saw the benefit of a fully optimised system but without the panel level monitoring it would have taken some time before the diode failure of a panel would have been discovered. A week in & it was obvious something was wrong from the layout with one unshaded panel being the worst performer. By analysing the voltage of each panel we can be sure there is a panel issue. The client identified early on with minimal system generation loss & option to swap just one panel.

SolarEdge also offers full energy monitoring of your property, panel level DC shutdown & long warranties.

Funding for thousands of electric car charge points unused by councils

OLEV issued a press release 12th January stating Ministers have written to local councils urging them to take up electric car charge-point funding.

Ministers Jesse Norman and Claire Perry have called for local authorities to do more to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle air quality after it emerged just 5 councils in the whole of the UK have taken advantage of an electric car scheme.

Government urges local authorities to take advantage of a £4.5million pot which could help people around the country join the electric car revolution

Also the Electric Vehicle Homecharge & Plug-in Car Grant schemes have been extended to help motorists make the switch to electric.

LG SolareEdge Home Energy Storage Innovation

Work has continued this week on Western Power Distribution’s LV Connect and Manage project an innovative trial installing energy storage systems in homes in Furzton, Milton Keynes working towards a smarter grid. As part of the project we are installing LG Chem home batteries using SolarEdge’s StorEdge interface. The Connect and Manage project is really important to WPD and its technology partners to allow it to learn more about future customer needs. The project allows WPD to demonstrate control and communication technologies that let you and your neighbours connect up solar panels and electric vehicles without delay. These technologies will be managed for short periods of the day (peak consumption for EV’s and off-peak export for PV’s) this gives WPD the valuable time it needs to plan network upgrades with minimal disruption to its customers.These home batteries are available to install in homes now. Please contact us for more information.

Greenest Ever Year for GB Electricity Generation 2017

According to the National Grid figures, reported by WWF recently, the GB electricity was the “greenest” ever.

For the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more than gas and coal combined in June last year breaking 13 clean energy records. Since 2012, Britain has halved it’s carbon emissions and is now the 4th cleanest power system in Europe and the 7th Worldwide.

Despite this carbon emissions for 2017, which averaged 275g/kWh, were still someway from the 2030 target of 100g/kWh. Further data can be found at MyGridGB

There are many ways we can impact our carbon footprints at home & at work from simple things like turning off lights, controlling heating systems, insulating our properties to investing in renewable energy & electric cars.

Stratford Energy can help with integrating renewable energy such as Solar Panels, energy storage & EV charging as well as LED lighting.

Christmas Opening Hours

The Stratford Energy Solutions office is closed from 5pm Wednesday 20th December & reopens 9am Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
