  1. I am in the process of Installing a 4kw ground mount system, have panels up and cables to CU, I have emailed a few accredited solar installers, but they are not interested in connecting up the system for me as they did not supply / install it? Can a qualified electrician do this? I know about the G98 form requirement.
  2. Hi, I have a 9 panel, 3.68kw array on a ground mount frame, panels are in a row, just about to run wire for grid connection, trying to do what I can before calling a professional for wiring it up, is it just a single cable from the panels to grid connection or do I run two separate lengths of cable?
  3. Looking to put in a 4kw solar panel ground mount system, I am planning to buy a system on line, build my ground mount frame, and get a neighbor who is good with electrics to set this up ready for grid connection. I have a copy of thecG98 form, does the installer have to be accredited or have a formal qualification?
  4. I enquired about fitting GSE trays directly on to sarking, was told that was fine by the Solar energy store. As long as I had ply strip or batten underneath the sarking for secure hold for fixings, no mention of potential heat problems, would there be space for wires as well, anybody tried fixing this way with a slate roof?

  6. Hi, Agreed Icf builders are thin on the ground, did you think of looking for one in Ireland there seems to be quite a few there.
  7. Hi, Thanks for the reply, Am. Looking at a smaller system myself so appreciate the information ?
  8. I take it you are fitting a bigger solar system than 4kw? What does the CT clamp do? Thanks.
  9. Recently positioned a second hand static caravan on my site, in preparation for the arrival of the builder.... Had a manhole for sewer available, so positioned caravan over it, as it was easier for me to bring water and power to the caravan than the sewer.
  10. Thanks, So may not be worth the lager pv system, as you really need to be using all you are producing to get maximum value, as payback from grid is minimal, and an additional battery system would only mean more going to grid I guess?
  11. OK thanks, just looking into all potential options that offer the best future proof system, if that's possible ?
  12. Would it be possible to fit a 3.68kw system that could export to grid, and another 3.68kw system that just charged batteries? Or would it be possible to fit say a 6kw system, limit 3.68kw to grid, and fit a battery storage system for the remaining output? Do buildhub members find solar pv with battery storage offers a good return of investment over time? Thanks.
  13. Has anyone heard of this solar system? https://www.useallenergy.nl/contact/
  14. If you have a 6kw system and you are only aloud to export 3.6kw to the grid, What happens on the odd occasion when you are producing 6kw and not using any of that and grid is limited to 3.6?
