We understand that when you want to install your solar panels, you only want them installed once. Which is why we insist on only using the very best materials and technology currently available in the world today.

 

Funky Renewables are proud to partner with Schletter GmbH, who produce the world’s number one German-made mounting systems from aluminium and high-grade steel.

Here a few sample projects to show what is possible with Solar PV. The installations have all been designed, installed and commissioned by Funky Renewables.

 

Domestic Install 4kWp 

Panels used: SolarWatt (235W)

Inverter used: SMA

Duration of install: 3 days

What else: The customer was expecting a baby so it was very important to do all works in the house quickly, efficiently and without mess. As the customers were already on edge with their new addition to the family, Funky staff worked relentlessly to work around their needs. The install has generated over 400kWh from September until the end of 2011.

Garden Shed Custom PV Install 1.2kWp

Panels used: SolarWatt (235W)

Inverter used: SMA

Duration of install: 2 days

One of our customers and Funky Renewables director, Dirk has been interested in Solar PV personally because they had a high electricity demand during the day for dish washing and laundry (no wonder with a family of five). The install was custom made using a wooden base and a steel frame. Now, in early Spring the install has a 5kW/h daily output and has already reduced the electricity bill. With summer coming on, the system should produce roughly 8kW/h per day.

Domestic High-capacity Install 3kWp

Panels used: Sanyo HIT (250W)

Inverter used: Kostal

Duration of install: 3 days (incl. roof repair)

With only a few days left before the FITs change (from £0.43p to £0.21p), the pressure was on to get the install up and running whilst also making repairs to the roof. Through a great team effort we managed sourcing the right panels and equipment, the roof repairs and the install in just under 3 days.
