Shading Factors

DID YOU KNOW SOLAR PANELS ARE LINKED TOGETHER?  THEREFORE ONE SOLAR PANELS’ INEFFICIENCY WILL AFFECT ALL PANELS CONNECTED TO IT.

The shading factor on a system can be very significant to the overall efficiency.

Even a small shading issue can have a huge impact on your systems generating capacity. Over time this can add up to a large loss on your expected revenue.

What to look out for:

  • Trees
  • Other buildings
  • Telephone lines
  • Areas of bird soiling
  • TV aerials
  • Chimneys
  • Leaf mold
  • Dirt

There are solutions to help maximise your PV efficiency and significantly reduce shading issues.

Power Optimisers

Most early Solar Panel systems did not have optimisers built in, some still don’t. Quite a few manufacturers are now building them into their newer panels.

Why? – Watch the Video

These modules fit each solar panel and are able to detect the performance of each panel independently from another.

Without optimisers the panels are all connected together and any shading affecting one panel will stop the other panels from generating to their capacity.

The optimiser can generate more overall power from a system by effectively isolating the panel not performing well from the rest of the system.

Once the performance issue has past the optimiser rejoins the panel to the rest of the group for maximum efficiency.

Generation meter relocation

Has your Generation meter been installed in a location that does not suit your current requirements. We can re-locate this to a more suitable position for whatever reason.

System decommissioning and re-installation

If you are re-roofing or roof repairs are required we can isolate the system while the work is carried out and if a complete new roof is required we can remove the solar panels into storage and re-install the system after the work is completed.

Need to add more panels

We can give you best advice on how to achieve more revenue from your system and install any upgrade.
