Solar panel storage batteries have emerged as a game-changer in the renewable energy landscape. Traditionally, solar energy systems were only capable of generating electricity during daylight hours. However, with the integration of storage batteries, excess energy generated during the day can be stored and utilised during periods of low or no sunlight. This breakthrough technology ensures a constant and reliable power supply, reducing reliance on the grid and maximising the utilisation of solar energy.

The price of a solar panel system is influenced by factors such as your home size and energy consumption. Get a rough estimate using our convenient online quote tool.


The installation of a solar panel system is typically a swift process, taking approximately 1 to 4 days. It commences with the erection of scaffolding on your property’s side to ensure the safety of our technicians while accessing your roof. Subsequently, the tiles are temporarily removed, and the solar panel housing is installed. Once the housing is in place, the tiles are reinstalled, and our engineer proceeds with the final steps, including the connection of a battery storage system and the setup of a dashboard for monitoring your energy generation and usage. Rest assured, our skilled team will efficiently handle every aspect of the installation for a seamless experience.

Determining the number of solar panels needed to power your home involves considering several factors, such as your energy consumption, location, type of solar panel system, panel efficiency, and panel orientation and tilt.
 

Assuming you live in an area with plenty of sunshine and have an average energy consumption of 4,000 kWh per year, you will need a 4 kW solar panel system. A 4 kW solar panel system requires approximately 10-12 solar panels, depending on the efficiency of the panels.

The Benefits of Solar PV in Bristol

You Save Money

By generating your own power, you will save some or even all of the money that you spend on your electricity bill.

Smart Investment

A typical home with a small rooftop solar system will pay back its initial investment in well under ten years whilst also adding value to the property.

It's Ecological

Unlike other forms of energy production, solar power does not produce greenhouse gases which makes it an environmentally responsible thing to do.

It's Reliable

All solar panels in the UK come with a 25 year performance guarantee and the whole system is likely to last several decades.

Contact The Experts

Contact us today to disucss your new solar energy system. We provide a detailed quote and site survey completely free of charge.

It's Sustainable

There is a small carbon footprint associated with the production of the panels and electrical kit, but this is overwhelmingly offset by the environmental savings.

It's Safe

The panels don’t contain any dangerous chemicals or materials and, because of the exceptionally high industry standards, the whole system has an exemplary safety record.

No Power Cuts

With electricity demand regularly outstripping supply, power outages are forecast, but the right solar system can supply your house when the grid has shut down.

Self Generated

You shield yourself against future rises in the price of electricity. When you are making your own power, you are protected against future spikes in energy costs.

Solar panels are a popular choice for our customers and for good reason. Solar energy is a clean, renewable, and sustainable source of energy that not only reduces your carbon footprint but also your energy bills.
We pride ourselves on offering high-efficiency solar panel and battery solutions that meet a variety of budgets and demands. We have the experience to help you get the most out of your investment, whether it’s a basic, freestanding solar panel system or a complicated, multi-panel arrangement with battery storage.

What happens if I make more power than I need?

The inverter is clever. It knows to make electricity that is at a slightly higher voltage than the grid and therefore the solar panels are the primary supply to your home and the grid is the back up.
If the panels are making exactly what the house needs then the grid is not required and there is no spare. However this almost never happens and usually you are making either too much or too little.

What happens if I don’t make enough power?

If you are not making enough power for the house then the grid makes up the difference. If you are making too much then the excess overflows into the grid, known as export, for which you will be paid.
The value of PV Import is precisely what you currently pay for Grid Import. This revenue is from your savings off the electricity bill. The value of PV Export is whatever your supplier is prepared to pay you for the excess power.

Do I Need a Battery?

The obvious problem is that the value of PV import is considerably higher than PV export and without a battery it is likely that most of the power will end up in the grid not in your house.

Don’t forget that this is a highly simplified illustration and the reality will be different because of fluctuations in your house load and the PV production. However, it provides a useful illustration of how much you are likely to still need to buy off the grid without a battery.
The beauty of solar panels is that they are very low maintenance. There are almost no moving parts meaning not much can go wrong. Solar panel systems are designed to last for years and come with a 25-year manufacturer guarantee.
Summit Energies is dedicated to offering only top-quality service. Our skilled team is always on hand to answer any questions you may have, and we provide a full after-sales service to guarantee that your solar panels are working correctly.
