Day-to-Day Process of the Installation

Day 1: Initial Consultation and Site Assessment

The first step in our process was an initial consultation with Naufal to understand his energy needs and expectations. Our team of experts visited his home in Maidstone to conduct a thorough site assessment. We evaluated the roof’s orientation, angle, and shading to determine the optimal placement of the solar panels. Naufal was keen on maximising his energy production and reducing his reliance on the grid, so we ensured that every aspect of the installation was meticulously planned.

Day 2: Design and Proposal

Following the site assessment, our design team got to work creating a customised plan for Naufal’s solar PV system. We designed a 3.2kW system comprising 8 high-efficiency panels, strategically placed to capture the maximum amount of sunlight. Additionally, we proposed installing a GivEnergy solar inverter and battery to store excess energy and a Zappi EV charger for his Tesla. We presented the detailed proposal to Naufal, who was pleased with the design and gave us the green light to proceed.

Day 3: Permitting and Approvals

Before commencing the installation, it was essential to secure the necessary permits and approvals from the local authorities. Our team handled all the paperwork, ensuring compliance with the regulations and standards. This step is crucial to ensure the safety and legality of the installation. By taking care of this process, we saved Naufal the hassle of navigating the bureaucratic procedures.

Day 4: Preparation and Logistics

With the permits in place, we scheduled the installation dates in consultation with Naufal, ensuring it fit within his availability. Our logistics team coordinated the delivery of all necessary materials and equipment to the site. We ensured that everything was ready and in place for a smooth installation process.

Day 5: Installation Day 1 – Solar Panels

The first day of installation focused on mounting the solar panels. Our skilled installers arrived promptly at Naufal’s home, equipped with all the necessary tools and materials. They began by installing the mounting brackets on the roof, ensuring they were securely fastened. The solar panels were then carefully placed and connected. The team worked efficiently, paying attention to every detail to ensure a seamless integration with the roof.

We installed REC solar panels on our clients’ home because of their unmatched efficiency and reliability. REC Solar is renowned globally for its high-performance panels which are designed to perform optimally in varying weather conditions, which is crucial for consistent energy production.

Evolve Renewables values REC solar panels for their superior energy conversion rates and robust durability, backed by extensive warranties. This choice not only helps homeowners significantly cut down on energy bills but also enhances the return on investment, making the most of the financial incentives provided in Kent.

By integrating the highest quality solar panels, Evolve Renewables ensures that Maidstone residents receive top-tier, sustainable energy solutions tailored to their needs.

Day 6: Installation Day 2 – Solar Inverter and Battery

The next step was to install the GivEnergy solar inverter and battery. The inverter is a crucial component that converts the direct current (DC) produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) that can be used in the home. The battery allows Naufal to store excess energy generated during the day for use during the night or cloudy days. Our team installed these components in a convenient location within the house, ensuring they were easily accessible for maintenance.

Day 7: Installation Day 3 – EV Charger

The final installation day was dedicated to setting up the Zappi EV charger. This smart charger is designed to work seamlessly with the solar PV system, allowing Naufal to charge his Tesla using the solar energy generated. The installation team positioned the charger in Naufal’s garage, ensuring it was conveniently located for his daily use. The charger was then connected to the solar system and tested to ensure it was functioning correctly.

Day 8: System Testing and Commissioning

With all components installed, it was time to test the entire system. Our team conducted a series of rigorous tests to ensure everything was working perfectly. We checked the solar panels’ performance, the inverter’s efficiency, the battery’s storage capacity, and the EV charger’s functionality. Once we were satisfied that the system was operating optimally, we commissioned it and handed over control to Naufal.

Day 9: Client Education and Handover

One of the final steps in our process is to educate the client on the system’s operation and maintenance. We provided Naufal with a comprehensive guide on how to monitor and manage his solar PV system, inverter, battery, and EV charger. Our team walked him through the monitoring app, explaining how he could track his energy production and usage in real-time. We also provided tips on how to maximise his energy savings and maintain the system for long-term efficiency.

Installing solar panels can significantly reduce your energy bills by generating free electricity from sunlight. The amount you save depends on the size of your solar PV system, your energy consumption, and the amount of sunlight your property receives. On average, homeowners in Kent can save between £500 and £1000 annually, with larger systems and higher self-consumption leading to greater savings.

In most cases, you do not need planning permission to install solar panels on your home in Kent, as they are considered permitted developments. However, if your property is in a conservation area, a listed building, or subject to other specific local restrictions, you may need to obtain planning permission. Our team can assist you in determining if you need any permissions and help with the application process if necessary.

A solar battery storage system allows you to store excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day for use during the night or on cloudy days. This maximises your self-consumption of solar energy, reduces your reliance on the grid, and can further lower your energy bills. Additionally, it provides a backup power source in case of power outages, ensuring you have electricity when you need it most.

The installation process typically takes 2 to 3 days for a standard residential system. This includes the mounting of the solar panels, installation of the inverter and battery, and the setup of the monitoring system. Our team works efficiently to ensure minimal disruption to your daily routine, and we coordinate the installation around your availability.

Yes, you can charge your electric vehicle with solar power by installing a smart EV charger like the Zappi.

This not only reduces your carbon footprint but also saves you money on charging costs. Our team can provide a tailored solution that meets your specific needs.

Solar panels require minimal maintenance, as they have no moving parts and are designed to withstand various weather conditions. It is recommended to have them cleaned periodically to ensure optimal performance. Solar battery storage systems also require little maintenance but should be checked annually to ensure they are operating efficiently.
