Most homes and businesses in Nigeria now boast of an inverter-battery system to supplement their generator-PHCN setup, a pointer that we’re all in this energy thing together. However, there’s an area we often overlook in our energy generation endeavors.
Did you know that by adding solar panels to your already existing inverter-battery system, you can eliminate the need for a generator and/or reduce your dependence on PHCN?
It’s quite simple, just add your panels according to the number of batteries you’re using, at higher watt rating.
For example, if you’re using 4units of 200ah batteries with your inverter, you’ll need 4 units of solar panels (of 250-300watts ratings).
Other things to consider are:
- The size of your inverter in kva.
- How often you use your inverter-system.
- How efficient your inverter & batteries are at the moment.
- Availability of space to mount the panels
Adding solar panels to your inverter immediately removes the need for constant charge monitoring and helps your inverter-battery life because generator charging often hurts inverter and battery efficiency. Also, you get to test and understand how solar works for your basic appliances before going full load.
