How does a grid-connected solar (photovoltaic) panel system work?

In a grid-connected solar panel system, the solar panels generate electricity which is immediately used by your home. If the panels don’t generate enough electricity to power your home, additional electricity is taken from the power-grid. If the panels are generating more electricity than your home needs, the surplus electricity is injected into the power-grid, for which you are compensated by your electricity supplier.

Frequently asked questions

About grid-connected solar panel systems in Spain
System questions

How does a grid-connected solar panel system work?

In a grid-connected solar panel system, the solar panels generate electricity which is immediately used by your home. If the panels don’t generate enough electricity to power your home, additional electricity is taken from the power-grid. If the panels are generating more electricity than your home needs, the surplus electricity is injected into the power-grid, for which you are compensated by your the electricity supplier.

Can I use battery storage?

Optionally, surplus electricity can also be stored inside one or more lithium-ion batteries, for use during times with little or no sunlight, or when you home is using more electricity then the panels are generating.

What does the inverter do?

The inverter inverts produced DC electricity into AC electricity, the type of electricity we use in our homes.

What inverters do you use?

For grid-connected systems we mostly work with hybrid, battery expendable inverters by Huawei and Fronius. We only use inverters that have been certified in Spain and all inverters come with a 10 year warranty.

What about micro-inverters?

When there is not a lot of space for solar panels, or when there are multiple small roofs with different orientations, we can install systems with micro-inverters. In a grid-connected solar panel system with micro-inverters, every panel will have it’s own micro-inverter. These systems can generate more electricity on the same surface area as with traditional systems. We use Maxeon 5 AC systems with solar panels by Sunpower and micro-inverters by Enphase. Contact or visit us for more information about these systems.

What solar panels do you use?

We only use premium, tier 1 solar PV panels by Jinko Solar, JA Solar, Hyundai, LG or Sunpower. All our panels are monocrystalline, HC (half-cut) PERC panels with an efficiency of 20% or higher and a warranty of 12 to 25 years.

What if there is shadow on the panels?

Shade can negatively affect production. Every panel that can potentially have shade on them should and can be outfitted with an optimiser, so that the panel(s) that have shade on them cannot negatively influence the panels in full sunlight.

What happens if the power grid fails?

A grid-connected system cannot supply your home with electricity when the main power grid fails, unless a UPS system or inverter with UPS function in combination with battery storage is used.

What about apps and software?

When there is a Wi-Fi signal at the location of the inverter, the inverter can be connected to your home Wi-Fi. The data of the system can then be viewed on any smartphone, tablet, laptop or pc.

Can the panels get too hot?

The panels can get hot in summer, but not too hot. The loses due to heat are relatively small and are calculated in the energy report that you receive with your quotation.

Installation questions

How are the panels installed on roofs?

With a diamond drill we drill a hole through the roof tile and the “bardo” (red stones used in roofing suits in Spain). Here we insert a threaded end and then the hole is sealed with a special waterproof glue so that there is no chance of leakage. Rails are mounted on the threaded end on which the panels are placed. The materials we use for this are by Würth.

How are the panels installed on flat surfaces?

For flat surfaces we use storm-proof prefab foundations or structures with an inclination of 5, 10, 15 or 30 degrees.

Where do you install?

We are based in Calpe and install on the Costa Blanca, Spain (Marina Alta – Marina Baja). We install in Calpe, Benissa, Moraira, Benitatchell, Jalon, Javea, Denia, Ondara, Altea, Alfaz, Albir, Benidorm, La Nucia, Villajoyosa and all towns and villages in-between.

What languages do you speak?

English, Dutch, Spanish, German and French.

What languages do the installers speak?

Our teams consist out of installers and electricans. Together they speak English, Dutch, Spanish and German.

Who installs the system?

Our teams of FEMPA certified installers and electricians with hundreds of systems of experience on all home and roof types. From modern newly built villa’s to hundreds of year old finca’s

What if the roof tiles break during installation?

All the roofs tiles that break during installation, are replaced by us, no matter how many.

What is the time to installation?

We can usually install within 14 days.

How long does the installation take?

Installation usually takes one full day. After installation the system is up and running and the day after installation we come by for the paperwork, to connect the inverter to your router and to explain the system and app.

Are the cables of the system concealed?

Yes, all cables neatly concealed inside the walls or inside cable ducts.

 

Can I expand the system with more panels later?

If you are thinking of adding more then 1-2 kW of panels in the future, we can install a stronger inverter during the first installation. This is important when you are thinking about buying a heat pump, pool heating systems, more air conditioners or an electric vehicle.

Administration questions

Are grid-connected solar panels legal in Spain?

Yes. Where you previously had to pay a tax on the returned energy (untill April 2019 – Impuesto del sol) you will now receive a compensation for the returned energy (real decree 244/2019).

What are the reimbursements?

The electricity supplier will pay you approx. €0,049,- (excl. IVA) per returned kWh. The value of this returned electricity is stated on your monthly electricity bill and is deducted from the electricity you still have to pay. You continue to pay the fixed part of the bill (electricity connection and taxes) and the number of kWhs may not be negative.

What about paperwork?

After the installation, we register the system and legalise the grid-injection. This important and obligated administrative paperwork is done so that the energy supplier can reimburse you for the injected solar-electricity. After the administrative work has been carried out, you and the energy supplier will receive a certificate (certificado de installacion en baja tension). The energy supplier will then contact you regarding the reimbursements for injected solar-electricity. 

Optionally we can forward your electricity invoice and certificate to a comparison company that can find out which energy supplier can offer you interesting tariffs per kWh and fixed (connection) costs (always with reimbursements for injected solar-electricity). They can then transfer you to this supplier by doing the paperwork and communication and they will also cancel the contract with the previous supplier. This service is done by e-mail and in English.

Can I get a discount on the IBI or grants

Please do not fall for sales pitches about large discounts on IBI and thousands of euros of subsidies of the Spanish government that later turn out to be unfeasible. In some towns you can get a discount on your IBI and in some cases you can get a grant from the government. Contact your gestor to see what paperwork your town hall wants to have from you and wether you have this.

Do you lease, rent or finance systems?

No, at this moment we do not. You can ask your bank to see if they have interesting loans for renewable solutions.

What is the payback period?

A grid-connected solar panel system without battery storage and based on your average electricity consumption, can be earned back in 5 to 7 years.

Do you sell systems and materials separately?

Yes. Visit or contact us for more information.

Do you offer panel cleaning services?

Yes, we offer a professional and affordable cleaning service using the right gear and de-ionised water (zero ppm TDS).
