We offer a full system analysis and upgrade susgestions. So get in touch!
Solar panel upgrades
One method to upgrade your solar system is to add more panels or replace panels that are not performing well.
Adding additional panels is dependent upon how much space you have to accommodate extra panels and how much weight the roof can support as well.
Our team of installers will check this before we recommend any upgrades to your system.
Another way to upgrade your system is to buy a new inverter, subject to whether your existing one is still working or not If you're adding extra panels, you will probably need a new inverter that is capable of dealing with the increased output
The two main options are:
• Micro-inverters which are connected to the panels themselves and come with a lifespan of 25 years but have a larger upfront cost and scaffolding is also needed.
• String inverters have an average lifespan of 12-15 years and are the cheaper option, String inverters work with most panel system sizes but this is subject to how the original panels were strung/installed.

Solar PV battery upgrades
The final popular way to upgrade your solar system is to add battery storage. Excess electricity generated by the solar PV system that the house doesn't use at the time of generation would be diverted to a battery.
Some battery systems will also allow you to top up on cheap overnight electricity so you can discharge it into the house when the electricity rate is higher We recommend a battery system be sized to your annual electricity usage to ensure the best benefit so please talk to us about the options.
