The Solar Panel
The 3.5kW (3500W) Plug-in Solar kit is supplied with 14 x 250W MCS certified solar panels. Each solar panel has a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty and a 25 year 80% power performance guarantee.
The 3.5kW (3500W) Plug In Solar Kit is supplied with 7 x G83/2 certified Dual Micro-Inverters. The Micro-Inverter converts direct current (DC) produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) for use in your home. As such, it forms the heart of the DIY Plug In Solar Kit. The Dual Micro-Inverter has a 10 year manufacturer guarantee, with the option to extend to 25 years.
The Ground Mount Kit
The 3.5kW (3500W) Plug In Solar Kit is supplied with 28 x adjustable metal A-frames, which support the module and can be adjusted between 15 and 43 degrees. These are warrantied for 10 years.
The Plug-In Solar Connection Unit
The 3.5kW (3500W) Plug In Solar Kit includes two Plug-In Solar Connection Units, which are 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 ensures the solar can be isolated from the rest of the grid if necessary. Please note: The maximum number of Dual Micro-Inverters that can be connected through a single Plug-In Solar Connection Unit is five, due to the amperage, so it is required that this kit is split between two connection units.
All components within the Plug In Solar kit comply fully with the BS, CE, G83/2 requirements and have MCS certifications, where applicable.
