Thread: Solar PV panels
picon face BY : David C Brown email (remove spam text)

I am looking into installing solar PV panels on the estate but I am
struggling to understand how they integrate with the existing power system./

I have a utility supply rated at about 25 kW and would install a solar
system rated at about 5 kW.  If I now impose a 6kW load how will it be
supplied?   Simple engineering suggests that 5kw willbe supplied by the
utility and 1kW by the solar panels.

But the instillation company assure me that all load up to the capacity of
the  panels will be met by them and that I only need to use utility power
as a top up.   And that excess solar power will be fed back to the utility

How is this implemented?
