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

In a grid-connected system, the solar panels will generate electricity during the day, which is immediately used by your home. If the panels are generating more electricity than your home needs, the surplus electricity flows back into the main grid. Your electricity supplier will compensate you for this injected electricity. When your home needs more electricity than the panels are generating, additional electricity is taken from the main grid. 

String-inverters and micro-inverters

Inverters invert DC electricity, which is generated by the solar panels, into AC electricity, the type of electricity we use in our homes. Depending on the situation, we use string-inverters with optimisers (SolarEdge or Huawei) or micro-inverters (Enphase). In a string-inverter system, there will be one main inverter. In a micro-inverter system, every panel is outfitted with it’s own micro-inverter. In most situations we use string-inverters, but when you have little space for panels or when you have multiple small roofs with different orientations, we will advise micro-inverters. Beside SolarEdge (American) and Huawei (Asian) string-inverters and if desired, we also install Fronius inverters. All our offered inverters are hybrid and can be extended with battery storage. This can be installed during installation, or at a later point.

Battery storage

Optionally, surplus electricity can be stored inside one or more lithium-ion batteries. Your home will use the stored electricity at times that the house needs more electricity than the panels are generating and at times with low or no sunlight. We often advise our clients to install battery storage at a later point, after installation. We do this because the app of the system gives you clear data about your production and consumption and therefore, a good insight into wether battery storage is a good investment for you and how much storage you need. 

Optimisers

In our systems all solar panels are outfitted with optimisers. Optimisers are attached to the back of every panel and constantly monitor the panel voltage and current and work to mitigate any mistmatch effects so that each module can operate at its maximum power level. This will result in higher production of the system. The system will also be able to deal much better with possible shade on the panels, as well as with sand and dust. Because optimisers are used, the system will be able to tell you what each individual panel is generating via the software or app of the system.

Integrated EV-chargers

Inverters with EV charger integration offer you the ability to charge your electric vehicle 2,5 times faster than with a standard charger, through an innovative solar boost mode that uses electricity from the grid and electricity from the solar panels simultaneously. This also reduces the hassle of installing a separate charger and eliminates the need for additional wiring and electrical components. 

Water heating solutions

Optionally, it is possible to divert surplus electricity to power water heating systems in stead of injecting into the main grid. This will of course lower your water heating costs significantly. If there is no need to heat the water, the system will start injecting in to the main grid.

Only premium PV modules

The solar PV panels we use for our installations are picked on almost 30 years of experience in Spain. We use mono-crystalline PERC shingled Hyundai panels (South Korean) or Sunpower Maxeon 3/5  panels (American) with a record breaking efficiency. All panels are premium tier 1 panels that have a product warranty of 25 years.

*This is an invoice example of an average Spanish villa with electric boiler, three air conditioners and an 8x4m pool. Because everything inside the houses uses the solar electricity first, the number of kWh’s of consumption are low. Compensacion excedente is the injected electricity, which is reimbursed by the electricity supplier. 

Administrative paperwork and certificates

After the system is installed, we will register the system and legalise the grid-injection via the ministry of industry (Generalitat Valenciana) and the grid-caretaker (I-DE). This important and obligated administrative work is done so that we will receive a certificate (certificado en baja tension para una instalacion generadora), that is used to receive reimbursements for electricity you generate but don’t use, and that flows back into the main grid. Your electricity supplier can see how much electricity you are injecting via a smart meter that sends this data to the supplier digitally. The injected electricity will also be mentioned on your monthly electricity bill. 

Reimbursements for injected electricity

Per injected kWh, your supplier will pay you 0,049 – 0.07 cents + IVA (depending on the electricity supplier). This money will be taken of the money you still have to pay your supplier, for electricity used at night for example (excluding fixed costs and the number of kWh’s may not be negative). 

Electricity supplier comparison/switch service

After installation and after the administrative paperwork has been carried out, we can send your electricity bill and solar certificate to an electricity supplier comparison company. They will research the electricity market and send you a proposal for low costs per kWh, low fixed costs and high reimbursements for injected solar electricity via email and in your own language.  When you like the proposal, they will switch you to the new supplier and cancel the contract with the previous supplier. This service is optional and free of charge for our clients. We do not receive compensation for doing this, but only do this to get you the lowest electricity bills possible.

Frequently asked questions

About grid-connected solar panel systems that are not answered in the information above.

What happens if the main grid fails?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

What if the roof tiles break during installation?

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

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

Do you install off-grid systems?

Yes, we also install all types of off-grid systems. With off-grid solar panel systems you are not connected to the main grid. All the electricity that your home needs is generated by the solar panels and stored inside batteries. These systems are used for being independent from electricity suppliers and for homes where realising a connection to the main grid is impossible or too expensive. In order to make sure you have enough electricity during storms that last for multiple days, a backup generator is used.

Do you install hybrid systems?

Yes. Hybrid systems are a mix between grid-connected and off-grid systems. The main will hereby function as the back-up generator in an off-grid system. You generate and store your own electricity and only use the main grid as a backup, during storms that last for multiple days.

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).

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.

Do you offer panel cleaning services?

Yes. We can offer you a professional and affordable panel cleaning service using the right gear and de-ionised water (zero ppm TDS). We also rent out panel cleaning materials. For more information about this, please contact us.

Can I get a discount on the IBI?

Yes, in some towns it is possible to get a discount on the IBI. For more information about this, contact your gestor.

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.

Do you register/legalise third party systems?

No, we do not.

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.

Do you sell systems and materials separately?

Yes. Visit or contact us for more information.
