How Does It Work?
How does Plug In Solar work? That’s easy to explain. Plug In Solar uses Solar panels to generate FREE ELECTRICITY from sunlight. This electricity is converted from DC to AC by a Micro Inverter, and fed into your mains electric circuit (via a Plug-In Solar Connection Unit) allowing you to power your household appliances.
Our DIY Plug In Solar Kits are made up of three main parts:
1. Solar Panels 2. Micro-Inverters 3. Mounting System
The Solar Panel
The Solar Panel consists of solar cells that are made of a semiconductor material. Once the sun’s rays meet the solar module, particles in the material are set in motion, creating electricity.
The Enphase Micro-Inverter
Plug In Solar Kits are supplied with G98 certified Enphase IQ7 Micro-Inverters. The Micro-Inverters convert direct current (DC) produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) for use in your home. As such, they form the heart of the Plug-in Solar Kit. The Enphase Micro-Inverter has a 25 year manufacturer guarantee.
The Mounting Kit
A Plug-In Solar Kit is provided with a mounting kit of your choice (Tile/Slate Roof Mount, Metal/Wooden Roof Mount, Flat Roof Mount, Ground Mount, or In-Roof). The mounting system ensures your solar panels are in the correct position and angle to catch the sun’s rays.
The Plug-In Solar Connection Unit
Each Plug In Solar Kit includes a Plug-In Solar Connection Unit, which is used to connect the solar to the mains grid. The solar can be connected as part of a ring main, as a spur from a ring main or on their own radial circuit. The switch is 13A, Double Pole and ensures the solar can be isolated from the rest of the grid if necessary, as required by the UK regulations.
