6 months already since Indigo-Energy installed fourteen Photo Voltaic Panels on the roof of our bungalow. The panels are together capable of supplying up to 5.7kW of power in full sunlight. To receive and distribute this power Indigo added a GivEnergy system comprising a 5kW AC Inverter, a 19kWh storage battery and all necessary monitoring and metering equipment. Additionally they connected up iBoost equipment to provide us with generous amounts of piping hot water from our new system. The team of Mark and Daryl turned up exactly at the promised time for the installation work and the complete system was turned on at the end of the next day with all necessary connections in place. They also added a changeover switch which allows all our house power outlets and lights to be supplied almost normally from the battery during mains power cuts - a big bonus! The installation has performed very well and without any problems during spring and summer 2023. According to the GivEnergy monitors the panels have produced just under 4.5MWh of energy to date and the inverter has exported a fraction under 2MWh to the public network. Our house use was 2.5MWh but we only needed to import 0.2MWh from the mains supply during the six months. The battery (19kWh) has been fully charged, by solar, almost every day and never less than up to the 85% level. Again, the hot water tank has been heated fully by the iBoost almost every day. With winter approaching we can expect to enjoy less power coming from our panels and may need to import a bit more energy from the public mains supply. We shall be able to do this at nighttime, charging our battery when the cost of electricity is lower. This power can then be fed into our house from the battery during the daytime and evening. We have experienced one public mains power cut since the system has been operational. The failure lasted for around 3 hours, some of it after dark. We were able to easily switch our entire house over to battery operation and were not at all inconvenienced. We are very grateful to Indigo-Energy for installing our excellent system.
