Solar Photovoltaic Installations Solar Panels for your home Battery storage systems
Renuvo is an award winning Solar PV Installer offering solar photovoltaic installations to homeowners, businesses and as part of whole house retrofit solutions
Solar Panel Installations
Solar PV systems, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity that you can use in your home. Solar PV panels are normally mounted on the roof of your building although they can also be placed on the ground when a suitable roof is not available. Solar PV and Battery Storage are a great combination to reduce energy bills throughout the year (pictured).
Solar PV systems are a sustainable, low-maintenance renewable energy system that allow for all year round electricity generation (except when its dark). A Solar PV system generates energy that can be used to power the base load of your property, top up battery storage systems (also known as Home Energy Systems) as well as using excess energy to heat your hot water through diverting electricity to your immersion heater.

Solar PV Systems
Solar pv systems are a popular renewable energy choice for both homeowners and businesses. On average, more than 4,000 solar panels are installed in the UK each month. The growing popularity of solar panels means that the prices have gone down by 60% over the past decade. Solar panels generate clean, emission-free electricity to power your home all year round, while their long life span of more than 25 years makes them a long-term good investment.

Low-Carbon Heating & Power
Having a south-facing property will mean your solar pv system will have direct sunlight, thus improving the efficiency and yield from your solar panels. This is because your solar panels on your roof will have direct sun-light all day long. However, solar panels also work on West/East facing roofs but will not get the same sort of yield as if it was south-facing.
Please make sure you let us know when is a suitable date for your rescheduled gas boiler service it is a legal requirement for your boiler to be serviced within 12 months.
Our Head Office is based in Tamworth but we operate right across the Midlands as well as further afield such as High Peak, Lincoln, Sheffield and Barnsley.
The average time from estimate to commissioning is around 3-4 weeks. As a local contractor working within the Midlands area, we have a number of installers who design, install and commission new solar panel and battery storage systems on a weekly basis. Contact us for more information

What Our Customers Say?
Pros of a solar pv Systems
The Benefits of Solar PV Systems
You can considerably reduce your electricity bills, especially when installed with a battery storage system. A typical 4KW system can save you up to 75% on your electricity bills
As well as generating your own electricity, you will be contributing to a more sustainable planet and reducing your carbon footprint
You can combine solar PV with other renewable technologies such as heat pumps or solar hot water systems. These technologies work well with each other, as solar PV could help power a heat pump
Solar PV installations are low maintenance and often regarded as fit and forget. They require little maintenance and if installed correctly, will continue to generate electricity all year round

How Does Solar PV Work?
– The Sun’s energy converted into DC voltage by PV panels on roof
– An Inverter converts DC voltage into ‘useable’ AC voltage. The inverter us usually installed in your loft or your garage. Some are also installed outside on the side if your property
– A generation meter is installed to monitor energy generated by your solar panels and the electricity exported back to the grid.
– Electricity generated used in household appliances during the day. DC energy is used to top up your battery storage system once your base-load of your house is covered.
– Unused electricity fed back into National Grid. A device such as an Solar I-Boost could be installed to utilise excess energy to heat up your hot water (immersion)
What Is The Cost of Installing A Solar PV System?
The cost of installing a Solar PV array really does depend on a number of factors including the size of your property, size of your array and whether you install battery storage.
A 4KW Solar PV installation will costs from £6500. This would typically include:
- A bespoke design, tailored to the property
- Installation schematics
- Lifetime technical support
- MCS support to successfully apply for the RHI (if applicable)
- Setup of remote energy monitoring
Solar Panel Performance Monitoring
How To Monitor Your PV System
During a solar panel installation, we will setup and guide you through the process of using the system’s monitoring platform. Below is an example of a Lux Power Tek system monitoring platform. The monitoring platform is accessed either via an app or logging into your account through a browser. The app allows the user to view, edit and change system settings as well as monitoring the solar panel performances, the yield, battery charge rate and import or export figures. You can view an example monitoring system by clicking here
Battery Storage Systems
In some cases, solar panels may not be the best option for your property. This may be to do with that you do not have enough roof space or the is a lot of shading due to trees or nearby properties. If this is the case, it might be worth considering an AC Coupled Battery Storage System
An AC Controller is a battery storage system that allows you to charge batteries during lower or ‘off-peak’ tariffs throughout the day or night and then discharge this energy when rates are at their highest. For example, Octopus Go allow a 4-hour window for charging between 12:30 and 4:30 at a lower rate. This means you are able to charge and store this energy and then use it throughout the day.
