4kW Solar PV Array
Typically a 4kW array will consist of between 16 and 18 solar PV panels. The number of panels required depends on roof size, direction of the roof and shading from neighbouring building and trees. The panels can be mounted on a pitched roof, a flat roof or even on the ground.
You would expect a 4kW array to provide between 60% and 100% of a typical family home's electricity requirement.
Solar panels vary in size, from 1.3m to 1.65m tall by .8m to 1m wide. Allbrite offer solutions from UpSolar, Sanyo, Sharp and Kyocera.
Because we are certified MCS installers our installations are eligble for the government’s Feed In Tariff Scheme (FITS) meaning that you will be paid for every Kilowatt Hour (kWh) of electricity that your solar panels generate. Therefore, at the current rate of 43.3 pence per kWh generated, your 4kW PV solar panel system could earn you at least another £1720 each year, for 25 years. And, of course, by generating your own free electricity you are automatically safeguarding yourself from the impact of future rises in the cost of electricity.
