WHAT IS THE COMPOSITION OF A HOME KIT inforce?
The HOMEinFORCE Kits comprise: photovoltaic panel 300WP, microinversor, AC power cord 10 meters, plug for connection to an electrical outlet, aluminum structure (ground or roof) and instruction book.
WHAT IS THE SIZE AND POWER OF EACH PANEL?
Each panel has 1965x990x40 mm and 300 W peak power.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE TIME FOR DELIVERY OF KIT SELF-CONSUMTION?
Our kits take on average 15 days to come to your home after confirmation of payment. Depending on stock availability.
WHAT IS THE WARRANTY KIT HOMEinFORCE?
Solar panels are of European manufacture and is guaranteed against manufacturing defects for 10 years, the inverter has a warranty against manufacturing defects for five years.
HOW MAKE THE PAYMENT KIT SELECTED?
Payment can be made via bank transfer, Paypal or credit card.
THE KITS HAVE TO BE INSTALLED IN TECHNICAL ACCREDITED?
The Decree-Law No. 153/2014 of 20 October 2014, provides that the installation can be performed by an electrician provided you have professional portfolio.
REQUIRED SOME SPECIAL AUTHORIZATION FOR A KIT own consumption instalção HOMEinFORCE?
Is provided by Decree-Law No. 153/2014 of 20 October 2014, no installation up to 1.5 kW need special authorization, only a mere online notice.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION SITE?
Kits are provided with an aluminum structure to be easily installed on the ground or in a sloping roof.
WHAT IS THE BETTER GUIDANCE TO PERFORM THE INSTALLATION?
The guidance that ensures better production is the South, though the Own final Kit can install the east (East) or West (West). Since in these cases the production yield can have a penalty of up to 30%. Installing the North is not advisable.
THE KITS PRODUCE IN DAYS CLOUDY SKY?
The Solar Photovoltaic technology allows for production of cloudy days, rain or snow. There will however yield loss in manufacturing, since the technology converts sunlight into electricity, and, these days the radiation levels are lower.
IF MY KIT PRODUCE ENERGY IN EXCESS AM PAID BY OVER INJECTED IN THE NET?
In order to be paid by the energy injected into the network needs to obtain a certificate of exploitation. This certificate is mandatory for systems greater than 1500W. It is optional for systems with power less than 1500W. This record also implies an inspection to the system.
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF REMUNERATION SELF-CONSUMTION?
The energy injected into the network is sold at an average price of Iberian energy market (OMEL) for the respective month with a 10% discount. Since the Decree-Law No. 153/2014 of 20 October 2014 provides for the following formula: Compensation [€] = Exported Energy [kWh] * OMIE [€ / kWh] * 0.9. We warned that if the energy injected into the network exceeds the one that consumes the network, the excess will be unpaid.
HOW CAN I KNOW IF THE KIT IS WORKING AND HOW MUCH IS TO PRODUCE?
There are on the market various monitoring systems available, with various degrees of complexity and functionality, which allowed to measure the production of the kit and the recorded consumption.
COMPENSATES STORE ENERGY?
In simple self-consumption systems, the energy produced is directly used in consumption that has that moment. In a situation where the consumptions are lower than the production, the energy is injected into the public network. We have a system with storage (batteries) on batteries, energy that is not consumed is saved instantly in order to use it when the sun exposure is lower or non-existent. Without a storage system requires a smaller initial investment (less equipment), will have a faster return.
