1. Which power plant should I choose to save and earn money?An on-grid solar power plant is suitable for this purpose. Such a plant generates electricity for your home and for sale to the general power grid at a green tariff. This means constant earnings pegged to the euro. Please note that the on-grid solar power plant cannot provide a house with electricity in an off-grid mode and depends on the work of the external power grid.
2. What should I choose for a 24/7 off-grid power supply of the building?There are 2 variants of solar power plants with accumulators: off-grid and hybrid. The first one operates without connecting to the general power grid, while the second one is able to provide a house with electricity and to supply it to the power grid at a green tariff.
3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of on-grid, off-grid and hybrid plants?The main advantage of an on-grid solar power plant is its cost. It is an investment that saves money on house maintenance and provides passive income. However, such an installation can not provide the house with electricity without connection to the power grid. Off-grid and hybrid power plants will address this challenge successfully but their price is higher due to the need for additional inverters and accumulators.
4. Why should I choose a solar power plant with accumulators and not a diesel generator?The operating mode of the diesel generator is not designed for frequent short-term electricity supply of the house in the event of power cutoffs of the general power grid, in contrast to the solar power plant. In addition, it needs diesel fuel and does not work automatically, while a solar power plant does not even allow you to notice electricity problems in the power grid.
5. What is the payback period for the solar power plant and how it will be paid back?The payback of the power plant becomes possible due to the sale of electricity to the general power grid at the green tariff. The average payback period in Ukraine is 6-7 years.
6. What is a green tariff and how does it work?The Green Tariff program allows individuals to sell electricity generated by alternative sources at prices pegged to the euro. The Electricity supplier will receive counter data monthly and pay the difference between generated and consumed electricity. Taxes and fees are deducted automatically and you receive net income at your account.
7. How can I apply for a green tariff?A purchase and sale agreement for buying electricity at a green tariff is concluded. You can find more detailed information at our "Green Tariff" page.
8. Which roof can the solar panels be installed on and can they spoil the coating?The solar panels can be installed at any roof, as mountings are already designed for any coating materials. High-quality installation using the correct type of mountings is safe for the roof.
9. What can I save on?The correct calculation will allow you to meet your individual needs without installing a maximum capacity power plant which will significantly reduce the cost of the power plant. In addition, a wide selection of trusted manufacturers creates all conditions for choosing the right equipment within your budget.
