“It’s an absolute win-win because we’re saving about 40% a year.”

Sarah and her husband Andrew decided to invest in solar panels and battery storage for their home in Cranbrook.

Installation summary

What was commissioned?

Sarah and Andrew commissioned a comprehensive residential solar PV system for their home. 

After working closely with them, and discussing their energy requirements, we decided to install 7 SunPower, SPR-Pr-405-BLK rooftop solar panels, as well as one solar inverter, and one Tesla Powerwall with Backup Gateway to ensure their system was well-connected and functioned seamlessly. 

Benefits of residential solar PV

Every year the sun produces 8,000 times more energy than we consume globally, ready to use whenever we need it, so why not make the most of this free supply? Sarah and Andrew’s new solar panel system will have the environmental benefit of planting the equivalent of 17 trees per year, as well as save 364.29kg of CO2 per year. These are impressive figures, and are important in our fight to protect the environment. They will also reap the additional benefits of residential solar panels, which include;

  • Improve your carbon footprint: as solar panels generate green, renewable energy there are no harmful pollutants released into the earth’s atmosphere. You will directly play a part in protecting the future of our planet. This is the most rewarding benefit echoed by almost all of our customers.
  • Cut electricity bills: Once you’ve paid for the initial installation, the sunlight is free and your electricity costs will be significantly reduced.
  • Save money on your electricity bills from day one: With the demand on the grid that we talked about, we can’t begin to wonder how much electricity will cost in 10 years, let alone 25-30! Can you afford not to protect yourself?
  • Sell surplus electricity back to the grid: Any electricity that you don’t use will be sold back to the grid to be used by the energy supplier. Therefore, there’s no wastage and you can earn money from the unused electricity you produce, making the system even more efficient.

Why we work with SunPower

At The Little Green Energy Company, we only partner with the best in the solar panel industry. SunPower have proven time and time again that their solar panels are not only one of the most efficient on the market, but they stand the test of time, as well as the inevitable wear and tear that occurs over decades of solar panel usage.

SunPower have been pushing the boundaries of innovation in solar energy for the past 30 years, which is why we at The Little Green Energy Company trust them, and recommend them to our customers with complete confidence.

The project

Sarah and Andrew’s home is the second oldest oast house in Kent, which made this a very special project indeed. We always work with the utmost care for our clients’ properties, and this was no exception. We were honoured to work on this beautiful property, and are thrilled to be a part of making this home even greener. 

The results

The installation went without a hitch, and the clients are really pleased with the results. Our engineers helped them set up their Powerwall, and helped them calibrate their energy streams to ensure they have full control of how they want their solar energy to be stored and used.
