DIY Solar Panel Installation

Recommended Posts

My self build is coming along nicely, however it’s been a few years since I decided to include solar panels. I’ve now got all the kit on site and need to get it installed in the next few months.
 

Can one of you knowledgable  people remind me of the official paperwork I need to submit and the whom? It’s being installed by myself and wired up by the qualified electrician.

Contact your local DNO and they will tell you what they need.

The forms changed about a year ago, it's now either a G98 or G99 application.

The form says the  maximum export should be limited to 3.68KW per phase utilising a Type approved EREC G100 device

 

what is a Type approved EREC G100 device?

Usually it is the inverter.  These are built in and if commissioned properly (we wary of SMA inverters as they can lock you out of you fail to get the country number correct).

There is usually a certificate with the inverter that states all this and a copy has to be sent to the DNO.
