Solar PV Systems


What makes a solar PV System?

A Solar system requires solar panels and an inverter to generate electricity. Modern solar panels produce electricity from daylight and do not require direct sunlight, although more energy is produced on bright, sunny days.

SunPower® Maxeon® Cells

Maxeon cells use back-contact conductivity, eliminating unsightly metal gridlines, and enabling them to absorb more sunlight.

Metal adds massive strength to each cell, helping it resist corrosion from the elements, while making the entire panel more durable.

Expanding and contracting from daily temperature swings are no problem with our built-in strain relief and thick, triple-redundant connectors.

Traditional PV systems consist of PV modules wired together in a series, much like Christmas tree lights. If a single module underperforms for any reason (cloud-cover, dust or dirt for example), the rest of the modules on that string also underperform, reducing energy production across the whole string.

SolarEdge Optimised Inverters

  • Maximise Generation – SolarEdge Optimisers allow individual panel-level optimisation, allowing full security of the system by having on-roof monitoring. Which also helps overcome issues such as shading.
  • Increased Efficiency: By mitigating module-level power loses, these inverters boost system efficiency, leading to increased performance of the system.
  • Enhanced Safety: SolarEdge offers SafeDC technology.
  • Monitoring and Performance Insights: Full monitoring allows tracking of each panel’s performance, identifying potential issues promptly.
  • Warranty: SolarEdge offers market leading warranty for both inverters and optimisers.
  • Future-Ready: SolarEdge inverters support smart energy solutions and integration with storage systems.

Already have a Solar System?

Did you know you could have a SolarEdge upgrade?

We recommend upgrading your Solar System to SolarEdge, which allows your system to perform at its maximum. SolarEdge offers a full monitoring platform to give you transparency of your system.

Increase your systems performance

SolarEdge Optimiser technology increases generation as each panel generates independently.

Live Monitoring

Access to a full monitoring portal via an app allowing full visibility of the performance of your system, including Solar Generation, Consumption, and self-consumption.

20 Year Warranty

SolarEdge offer a 12-year inverter warranty as standard, Stratford Energy include a 20-year warranty with every SolarEdge Upgrade, so you system is secured for the foreseeable future.

Future Proof

We only work with trusted and respected providers. This insures all our installs are future proof.

Additional Solutions

Have you considered these optional extras to increase the security of your system?

Bird Guard

To avoid the nesting of birds under panels we recommend bird guard is installed around on-roof panels. Debris under panels can reduce generation and birds can get caught up in wiring.
