Your Smart Energy lithium batteries come with a product warranty of 10 years.
We guarantee the installation (cabling, mounting frames, etc) for 12 months, and will rectify any defects for FREE during this period.
Solar Panel Frequently Asked Questions
1. By using solar panels, does it mean that I don't need to use PLN anymore
It is possible to disconnect from PLN entirely. However, you will need a very big battery system which can be costly. Hence, most people opt for an on-grid system and stay connected to PLN.
You may wonder, why would you need PLN at all if you now have a solar system?
The reason is simple, solar panels only produce energy when there is sufficient direct sunlight. In Indonesia, that amounts to around 4-5 hours/day.
The rest of the time you would need PLN to supply electricity to your building, especially if you wish to run air conditioners, which consume the most power in most households!
It is possible to go completely off-grid, but we don't recommend it if you can still access PLN as off-grid systems will be significantly more expensive. If you want to have a backup during power outages, we can design a smaller battery system for you.
2. What is meant by solar net metering/selling back to the grid?
PLN now allows you to feed any surplus electricity produced by your panels into the grid at a 100% value of the tariff. This process is called net-metering, and PLN provides an export-import meter for this purpose.
Solar system size: 10kWp
Energy produced: 4.4 hours x 10kW = 44 kWh
Energy used during the day: 22 kWh
Compensation from PLN: 44 - 22 kWh = 22 kWh x 100% = 14.3 kWh.
In a way, you can use that 14.3 kWh at night, for free.
Note that If you are connected to the grid are required by law to apply for net metering, and we can help you with this.
3. What is the difference between on-grid, hybrid, and off-grid solar systems?
In short, an on-grid system simply means that you will remain connected to the grid (or PLN in Indonesia). When the panels aren't producing enough power to meet your needs, your building will draw automatically from PLN.
A hybrid system means that you remain connected to the grid, but also have a battery system that can be used as a backup during power outages.
An off-grid solar system is completely disconnected from PLN. You will be relying solely on solar and battery systems for your energy supply. This system can also be coupled with a conventional generator for cost-efficiency.
4. Can I use solar panels as power backup during outages?
No, if you're connected to the grid (PLN) they don't allow you to use solar energy for safety reasons. To have power backup, you will need to add batteries. Contact us to help you design the most efficient solar & battery systems to suit your needs.
5. Do I need batteries for my solar system?
It depends on what your aim is. If you just want to use as much solar energy as you can and reduce your PLN usage, batteries are not a necessity.
However, if you want to have power backup for outages/blackouts OR are not connected to the grid at all (off the grid), then batteries are necessary. By using batteries, you can keep using the energy from your panels. Ask us how.
6. Is my roof suitable for solar panels?
The ideal roof for solar arrays is north-facing, with a roof tilt of 10-30 degrees. This is something to keep in mind if you're yet to construct your building. For each kW installed you will need a space of 5 m2.
However, no matter what your roof is like, we can help you find the most suitable placement for your array. Simply contact us for a free consultation.
7. How long does it take to install solar panels?
Solar panel installation can take as little as 1 day for a small installation, and weeks for a bigger installation.
Once the system is installed, we will need to report the installation to PLN so that they can come for a site survey. This process can take 2-4 weeks. After that, we will have to apply for an export-import meter/a reconfiguration of your meter, which can take another 2-4 weeks.
Typically you can get a working installation in 4-6 weeks or more, depending on the size of your installation and PLN's response time.
8. How do I calculate the best solar system size for my building?
There are a few ways to decide this:
Go for the maximum capacity: PLN doesn't allow you to install more solar panels than what your current PLN capacity is. For instance, if your building has a power capacity of 40 kVa then the maximum solar system that we can install would be around: 34-kilowatt peak (kWp).
Go for the best ROI: The way to do this is to only install the capacity that you will definitely use in order to avoid selling back to the grid. Why? PLN only compensates 0.65 kWh out of 1kWh, so it's always much better to use your solar energy instead of feeding it back to the grid. We can help you calculate this.
Roof space. Of course, the size of your solar system would also be limited to the space available on your roof/other areas where you would like to install your array. Each kW would take up around 4.5-5m2 of roof space.
