Finally, a photovoltaic kit is being marketed in Spain to have solar energy even in those city flats that do not have a roof. Thanks to a portable equipment, easily installable by oneself and at very reasonable prices, it is possible to place photovoltaic panels on the balcony or on any exterior wall. In addition, they are removable, so they can be removed at any time. They do not allow to cover the entire supply of the house, but they help to save appreciably on the electricity bill: up to 40%.
One of the companies that is supplying these plates is Solarlab, which sells several types of kit for terraces with photovoltaic panels made with ETFE technology. They are exceptionally light plates and, in addition, flexible. They have a six-year warranty and 25 years of performance.
The prices of these panels range between 800 and 2,400 euros, depending on their capacity, so their amortization is guaranteed in all cases in a fairly short period of time.
This solution even allows renters to install this type of plates, since they can remove them as soon as they move to another place.
It is simply necessary to place the panels in a sunny place, connect them to the microinverter that they have incorporated and from there to any outlet in the house.. From there they start to work, saving energy every month and cutting the electricity bill.
The models that are marketed, five in total, range between 400w (two solar panels) and 1,600w (eight panels), all of them with 200+ watts each and an efficiency greater than 19.4%, microinverter included.
Solarlab is also a company committed to the fight against climate change and therefore donates 1% of its income to the elimination of carbon dioxide, by being part of Stripe Climate, a coalition of companies that finance decarbonization methods throughout the planet and of which 25,000 companies from 39 countries are part.
“Each home has a different electricity consumption, but our experience shows us that It is possible to save up to 40% of electricity consumption. For example, a system Solar Lab PiE AIR 800+ W it can generate more than 1,100 kWh of sustainable electricity per year if properly installed. This corresponds to the annual consumption of a refrigerator, a dishwasher, a washing machine and a television. If you personally consume 100% of this electricity produced, today it could mean savings of more than 400 Euros a year”, says the company on its website.
The panels can be installed by the buyer himself, since they do not require any special assembly: just place them wherever you want. They weigh only 3 kilos and are fixed with straps that are included in the package. The plates do not require any special maintenance either.
