What you can do with the energy produced by solar panels

How practically kWh generated by solar energy can be used in real life !

If you asked yourself what you can do with the energy produced by solar panels, here is the answer. Have you ever thought how useful the energy from photovoltaic panels is? This brief article will give you real production data from a 1kw and 11kw solar systems in the UK.  Generating your own electricity has a number of benefits. The following graph illustrates the energy production from 11.5kWp photovoltaic installation. The average production per 1kw installed is 5.2kWh per day. The measurement was taken in April 2016.

The benefits of solar energy:

  1. Affordable generation of your own electricity
  2. You can be 100% Independent from the expensive electricity companies
  3. Solar panels are free of maintenance and last for 25 years
  4. Solar inverters and batteries have 15 year life span.
  5. You cut completely the CO2 emission to the environment

Daily Energy yield from 11.5kw solar roof in Coventry, United Kingdom. 60.61kWh, that is 5.2kWh per 1kw installed

 

The British weather is less friendly to solar panels, UK has the lowest insolation levels in Europe. However, you can still generate enough electricity using the right solar equipment from Voltacon Power Conversion

We could use the 61,60 kWh that our solar panels yielded during this time for:

Ledison led lamp

Powering all the lights in my home for 39 evenings
electric car voltacon
Driving my electric vehicle on batteries for 267,8 kilometers
washing machine
Washing clothes at 60 degrees 51 times
dollar bag voltacon
That’s approximately €10, £8 or $12 on our electricity bill
voltacon eco friendly
Avoid emitting 103,4 kg CO2

It is impressive what we can achieve using the natural resources of our planet. The sum can be used to generate abundant free electricity for life !
