How Solar Can Play a Role in the Recovery After COVID-19 & Ensure a Greener Future
COVID-19 has & will continue to have a massive impact on individuals, businesses & the economy. The current focus remains on alleviating the significant health concerns accompanying this pandemic and businesses grapple to adapt to the new culture of social distancing, economic hardship and reduced workforce. However, at the same time efforts to boost the economy can start with an emphasis towards sustainability. As communities wait on the country to transition into recovery, Stratford Energy Solutions can help with this drive to a greener future.
Solar Energy Fights Climate Change – While the world experiences the current health COVID-19 crisis, Climate Change is another global crisis that needs to be faced. As a clean technology solution, Solar can help reduce the amount of pollution released into the atmosphere. Each solar system installed can take us a step closer to preventing Climate Change.
Solar Power is Cost-Effective – Solar has become increasingly affordable throughout the years for both home and business owners looking to save with an alternative energy source. As continued advancements in Solar technology increase efficiency, homeowners can generate more power at a lower cost. For businesses & community buildings we can offer systems with no capital expenditure or lease agreements to avoid large investment but still allowing long terms energy cost reductions.
Solar creates jobs – as Stratford Energy Solutions continue to expand, along with other Solar installers we will increase our teams & employ more people.

Solar Power sets new generation record
The UK’s solar capacity set a new generation record earlier this month, almost a year to the day it achieved the same feat in 2017.
Data compiled by PV Live and verified by National Grid show that PV generation peaked at 9.42GW from 11:30 AM on Monday 14 May, edging just past the previous record of 9.37GW set almost a year ago.
These record-setting periods also saw solar provide 25% of the country’s entire demand, the second largest power source at that time of day. Combined with wind (10%) and nuclear (18%), low-carbon sources made up more than half of the UK’s entire energy demand around midday.
And the record caps off what has been a highly productive period for the UK’s renewables fleet. Solar PV has regularly contributed upwards of 25% of the UK’s power supply around the midday peak in recent weeks, and the early May bank holiday spell saw PV become the dominant energy source for a total of six full hours over the weekend.
Far from being an overarching issue for National Grid, the transmission system operator has repeatedly asserted that it has the tools at its disposal to cope with such periods of significant solar generation.

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.
