The inverter within your solar PV system is generally only built to last 5 -10 years, meaning if your solar PV system is 5 years or older, it might be time for an inverter replacement. It plays an important part in ensuring your solar PV system runs flawlessly, with its basic function being to “invert” the direct current (DC) output into alternating current (AC). AC is the standard used by all domestic appliances, which is why many view inverters as the “gateway” between the photovoltaic (PV) system and the energy off-taker. Simply put, if your inverter fails or breaks, you won't get any power from your solar panels. If your system has suddenly stopped working, or you’ve got a red light showing on your inverter, it could well be the inverter that’s stopped functioning. Finding a replacement inverter isn’t a problem, meaning we can have your solar PV system back up and running without a fuss.
Like with any technology, it is important for your solar PV system to be professionally serviced regularly so you can truly benefit from its cost-efficient abilities. In fact, keeping your system well-maintained with regular servicing can make your system 30% more efficient by detecting and repairing any hidden issues, before they become a headache. So, if you spot the electric output dropping, or if any warning lights start to flash, give GGRS’ friendly team in Doncaster a call so we can send out a qualified engineer to get it back up and running.
Want to check if your system is running at 100% efficiency? We can perform a solar PV system diagnosis check for you so you can find out how your system is running, and if any work is required for your system to reach its full potential. Simply call the number above and we'll be out to your property to conduct a system check and report back any issues we've diagnosed.
A solar panel installation on your home in Alcester will use the sun’s energy to generate electricity efficiently. The electricity that is generated can then be used to power your home, saving you money on your energy bills all whilst being environmentally friendly.
If you have a storage battery installed, then you can truly get the most out of your solar panel installation by storing the energy that has been generated, but unused. This means you not only use up to 80% of the energy generated from your panels, but you will still get to reap the benefits from the Government’s Smart Export Guarantee. Depending on your power needs will depend on the type of solar panel installation you require for your home in Alcester. If you require a large power output, then you will need a larger solar panel installation with more panels to accommodate your needs and will all be explained and provided in your free no obligation quote.

If you already have a solar PV system, you probably already know the benefits and the money that can be saved due to its cost-efficient capabilities. But, do you know how you could save even more money from your solar PV panels by installing battery storage.
Unless you have battery storage fitted to your solar PV system, on average you’ll only be using 27% – 32% of the power you are generating. The Government pays you for 50% through the Export Tariff no matter how much you use.
What if we told you that with solar batteries you could use up to 80% of the energy you create, and still get paid for 50% of the energy you’ve generated? By having a battery storage system added to your existing solar PV system in Alcester, you can manage the energy you’ve generated effectively and efficiently by storing it away if it isn’t used.
Battery storage works by storing surplus energy in the batteries for later use. The system can also be fitted with a built-in EPS (Emergency Power Supply) functionality, allowing you to make use of your stored energy in the event of a power outage.
In case of emergencies, the PV installation can be forced to stop power generation and be disconnected from the main building electrical supply by carrying out the following steps.
1. Turn the AC isolator marked "PV POINT OF EMERGENCY SWITCHING" to the OFF or "0" position.
2. The AC connection to the inverters will be lost.
3. The inverters will detect the loss of AC, will immediately remove themselves from the AC distribution system and will switch their DC inputs to "open circuit" mode.
4. Turn off the DC isolator(s) at the inverter location.
5. Although DC voltages will still be present in DC cabling there will be no DC current flowing through the cables.
*INVERTER COVERS SHOULD NEVER BE REMOVED UNLESS BY A QUALIFIED ENGINEER*
The cover of the inverter should never be removed unless the unit has been completely isolated from both the DC and AC supplies. Once isolated the inverter cover should not be removed for approximately 30 minutes, this will allow the DC input stage capacitors to fully discharge.
This will ensure that the DC currents are reduced to zero before DC isolations carried out. Breaking a DC current can result in arcing which may cause damage to connectors. NEVER use a plug and socket to switch a DC current. The fully rated DC isolator adjacent to the inverter should be used to complete the DC isolation.
The following steps will result in full and safe isolation of the inverter.
1. Turn the labelled AC isolator adjacent to the inverter to the OFF position.
2. The invertor will then detect the loss of AC, will immediately remove itself from the AC distribution system and will switch its DC input to "open circuit" mode.
3. Turn the DC isolator adjacent to the invert to the OFF or "0" position. This will remove any DC voltage the inverter input connections.
Wait at least 30 minutes before removing the cover if access is required.
*INVERTER COVERS SHOULD NEVER BE REMOVED UNLESS BY A QUALIFIED ENGINEER*
A display of the instantaneous PV system output (in kW) can be obtained from the inverter or in some cases the meter.
This section describes the sequence of actions required to start the PV installation generating electricity from the following initial conditions. In order to prepare the inverters for generation of power, the following steps should be followed to connect the DC supply. It is assumed that these operations are carried out in good light conditions.
1. All PV string cables checked for voltage and polarity and connected to the Dc isolator inputs. All DC cables connected between DC isolators and inverter inputs as per drawing. It is assumed that the system has been previously commissioned by trained personnel.
2. Turn on the DC isolator.
3. Main supply breaker CLOSED (i.e. switched ON).
4. Turn on the AC isolator.
5. After a delay of approximately 3 minutes, during which time the invertor will monitor the grid voltage and frequency. As soon as the inverter has completed the start-up test, the inverter should start to generate power.
6. Full details of invertor front panel LED flash codes are given in the inverter operation manual.
