Solar PV Installation with Solax 5kW Hybrid Inverter, 11.6kWh Battery Storage, and Jinko 420W All Black Panels
This project involves the installation of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system consisting of a 5kW Solax Hybrid inverter, 11.6kWh battery storage, and 14 Jinko 420W all black solar panels. To address the challenge of installing the system on a flat roof without penetrating the roof’s felt, a structural engineer was engaged to approve and sign off on the use of a Renusol flat roof mounting system, incorporating plastic consoles.
The Solax 5kW Hybrid inverter plays a crucial role in converting the direct current (DC) electricity generated by the solar panels into usable alternating current (AC) electricity for the electrical system. The hybrid functionality enables seamless switching between solar power, battery storage, and grid power, optimizing energy usage and promoting self-consumption.
The battery storage system, with a capacity of 11.6kWh, allows excess solar energy generated during the day to be stored for later use. This enhances energy self-sufficiency, provides backup power during grid outages, and enables better utilization of solar energy during periods of low or no solar generation.
The 14 Jinko 420W all black solar panels are selected for their high efficiency and sleek aesthetic, blending well with the roof’s appearance. These panels will be strategically positioned on the flat roof to maximize solar energy capture throughout the day, ensuring optimal electricity generation and minimizing the environmental impact.
The challenge in this project was the requirement to avoid penetrating the roof’s felt during the installation process. To overcome this obstacle and ensure a secure and non-intrusive mounting system, a structural engineer was consulted. The engineer assessed the roof’s structural integrity and approved the use of a Renusol flat roof mounting system, specifically designed for flat roofs and incorporating plastic consoles.
The Renusol flat roof mounting system with plastic consoles provides a reliable and non-penetrating solution for securing the solar panels to the roof. The system is designed to distribute the weight of the panels evenly and prevent any damage to the roof’s felt. By working closely with the structural engineer, the installation team ensured that the mounting system met all necessary safety and stability requirements.
The structural engineer’s sign-off provided reassurance that the installation complied with industry standards and best practices. It confirmed that the mounting system would not compromise the roof’s integrity or lead to potential leaks or damages.
Once installed, the solar PV system will generate clean and renewable energy, significantly reducing electricity costs and carbon emissions. The Solax Hybrid inverter and battery storage system will enable efficient energy management, allowing users to optimize self-consumption and reduce dependency on the grid.
Monitoring and control features will allow users to track energy production, consumption, and battery storage levels through a user-friendly interface. This provides real-time insights into energy usage patterns and empowers users to make informed decisions regarding their energy consumption.
In summary, this project highlights the use of a Solax 5kW Hybrid inverter, 11.6kWh battery storage, and Jinko 420W all black panels for a solar PV installation. The project also demonstrates the collaboration with a structural engineer to obtain approval for a Renusol flat roof mounting system with plastic consoles, ensuring a secure and non-penetrating installation on the flat roof while adhering to industry standards and protecting the roof’s integrity. The end result is a reliable and efficient solar energy solution that promotes sustainability and reduces electricity costs.
