Solar energy gives us an excellent way to generate green energy for our homes, causing no harm whatsoever to the environment in the process. Due to the costs involved with installing a solar energy system however, many people are not using solar energy at home.
A solar system provides great benefits to the environment as well as long term savings and independence for the homeowner, so this is a real shame.
There is a fairly new solar panel product on the market which is simple, easy and affordable, making it ideal for those individuals who want to be greener and take a first step into solar technology. This product is not intended to be a replacement to the regular solar energy system, but a cheaper, viable alternative for people who could not otherwise use solar technology at home.
This solar product is a modular solar panel unit that you mount in a suitable place, then plug in. The system starts to produce green energy as soon as it is mounted and plugged in to the nearest 13 amp socket.
These clever plug in systems are classified as an appliance and very basically, rather than drawing any energy out of the plug, they feed energy back into your electrical supply.
Most of the plug in equipment comes with a 200 or 250W panels. It is vital for the panels to be positioned somewhere there is no shade as this will limit productivity. You must keep the space between the plug socket and the panel to a maximum of ten meters at the most if you do not want to lose energy. Because of the way the systems are designed you can add to them later if you wish, although you pay more in the long term per unit if you start with only the one.

Even though plug in panels are easy to fit, if you aim to qualify for the UK government FIT scheme, you need at least four panels fitted by a professional.
You don’t need to seek permission to install a plug in system at home unless you live in a conservation area where panels may or may not be permitted or your property is listed.
The kits start at somewhere in the region of five hundred and fifty pounds for a complete kit with 200W panel. Perhaps this is the solution you have been looking for? Contact us at Los Angeles Solar!
