Solar Panels Installing solar, what happens Tutorial 45 solarwindheat
Installing solar, what happens Electricity generating solar panels can be fitted on any structurally sound roof, planning permission is not required. Permission from your council may be required if your house is listed or in a conservation area. If permission is needed then we can provide assistance. We'll send you a free, no obligation estimate, showing the number of panels that can be fitted, the cost and the return on your investment. If the estimate is of interest, we'll then conduct an onsite survey, again, this is completely free with no obligation.
Our experienced surveyor will provide you with a full breakdown of the numbers and explain everything. Installations on most homes can be completed in a day or two. The panels are fitted on a track system on the roof. We always take time and great care to ensure whatever type of roof you have it's integrity will be unaffected and it will remain watertight. The inverter is the size of a standard boiler, that's all the space that's needed. It's usually fitted in your loft or garage. Once installed, there are 3 steps to get things certified and signed off.
Step 1, as approved contractors of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, we register your installation to get your MCS certificate. Step 2, an Assessor surveys the installation and issues your Energy Performance Certificate. This survey is included in the price that we quote. Step 3, we'll help you with the paperwork that's sent to your chosen electricity company. We'll then give you your handover pack and talk you through that. Every 3 months thereafter you'll be paid your income by cheque, or direct into your bank account, whichever suits you. Because of the way some electricity suppliers billing cycles work, it may take up to 12.
How Radiant Barrier Works AtticFoil Reflects Heat Coming Off The Roof
Hey, this is Ed with AtticFoil. In this short tutorial I'm going to explain HOW an atticinstalled radiant barrier works. All of the heat from the sun is transferred to Earth in the form of radiant heat. This is heat transfer without actual contact with the heat source. When your roof absorbs radiant heat from the sun, it heats up. Eventually, your roof will start to reradiate the heat in all directions. About half of the heat, or energy, will transfer into the attic. Radiant heat is the invisible part of the light spectrum.
It's the part you feel, not the part you see. For example, if you stand near a fire on a cold night, you feel the radiant heat on your front side, but your backside may still be cold since it's not receiving any radiant heat. Radiant heat travels at the speed of light until it's either absorbed or reflected. Normally your attic insulation will absorb all of this energy and it too will start to heat up. Eventually this heat will make its way through the attic insulation and into the home. Traditional attic insulation will.
Only slow down the heat transfer process. When you install a radiant barrier between the roof and the attic insulation, by either stapling it to the bottom of the roof rafters or laying it out over the attic insulation, it breaks this path by reflecting the radiant heat back towards the roof, and helps keep the attic insulation from getting as hot. By keeping the attic insulation cooler, we can significantly reduce the amount of heat transfer entering the home by making the regular attic insulation more effective. So think of it this way radiant barrier is your FIRST line of defense against radiant heat, and.
Traditional attic insulation is your second line of defense against conductive heat flow. Since your home is exposed to both types of heat, you need a different product for each one. In fact, radiant heat is actually EASIER to control than conductive heat since it can be reflected by just about any shiny surface. A lot of people talk about a COOLER ATTIC, which is nice but really what we want is cooler attic insulation. An attic installed radiant barrier will keep your attic insulation cooler. This means less heat will enter the home.
Cooper Bussmann Photovoltaic Surge Protective Devices
Welcome to GTV! Today I will be showing you some of Cooper Bussmann's Photovoltaic Surge Protective Devices. The Cooper Bussmann Photovoltaic SPDs are available as a two module device with twostep DC switching or a three module device with threestep DC switching. These SPDs feature easyID visual indication and optional remote contact signaling for use in PV systems. These complete surge protective devices are suitable for all PV systems in accordance with UL 1449 3rd Edition and IEC 603647712. This prewired solution consist of a base and locking modules that feature a combined disconnection and shortcircuiting.
Device with safe electrical isolation to prevent fire damage due to DC arcs. An integrated DC fuse allows safe module replacement without arc formation. In case of insulation faults in the generator circuit, a reliable and tested faultresistant Y circuit prevents damage to the surge protective devices. The green and red visual indicator flags show the module protective status. Apart from this visual indication, the remote signaling option features a three terminal floating changeover contact that can be used as a make or break contact depending on the particular monitoring system design employed. Both models come with a 5.
Tech Talk 9 Interconnection Basics
Hi, this is Zack Zoller from Blue Oak Energy here with Tech Talk Tuesday. I'm here to talk to you about interconnection basics. There are really two types of interconnections the load side and the line side and I'll show you what those mean. Basically, the load side, there are three main points you need to keep in mind. You're going to need to install a visible, lockable disconnect for the utility to use. You're going to need to install up to and limited to 20 of your facility's main rating. What that means is a 100 of your.
Power is going to come from the utility, that's usually the rating of your gear, and 20 you can overload that rating by adding additional PV. But you're limited to point number three. You need to install your PV at a point farthest away from your utility coming into that switch gear. Line side, you're also going to need a visible, lockable disconnect, but this time it's going to have to be fused because you're not connecting at breaker. You're connecting directly to the bus, and you're also going to be connecting in between your facility's.
Main generation meter and their disconnect. What that means diagrammatically, if this is your facility gear for your load side connection, you can feed up to 20 of your gear's rating at a breaker farthest away from the point of utility feed on your bus. For a line side, you're connecting between the meter and the main disconnect. What that allows you to do is connect up to the full rating of your gear and PV, and that's usually what people like to do. You notice you're still on the load side of the main meter, so you're back feeding.
That meter, and you're offsetting your power consumption. So it's really pretty simple. To go back over those main points, load side, line side, you're going to need a visible, lockable disconnect in either case. Load side, you can install up to 20 of the rating of your main gear. On the line side, you just need to make sure you're on the load side of your meter but on the line side of your main disconnect. And that's it. If you have any questions, come join us at Blue Oak Energy. We'll talk your ear of. This has been Zack.
