We provide state-of-the-art solar panel technology and battery storage systems to help you harness the sun’s energy, save money on your electricity bills, and reduce your carbon footprint. Our experienced team of engineers and technicians can design a tailored solution to meet your individual needs and help you achieve your energy goals.

Solar energy is a sustainable power source that harnesses the energy of the sun through solar panels to generate electricity for various devices in homes and businesses. The solar panels work by converting sunlight into electrical energy, which can then be stored in the battery to be used as needed. This technology is highly proficient, meaning that a small amount of sunlight can still produce a lot of electricity.

Compared to traditional energy sources like oil and coal, solar energy offers a cleaner and more environmentally-friendly alternative. By relying on the sun’s energy, this method preserves finite resources and reduces the carbon footprint, which ultimately helps to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air quality, and conserve water resources.

What are solar PV systems and why should you invest in one?

Solar PV systems are a type of renewable solar energy system that uses photovoltaic (PV) cells to capture and convert sunlight into electricity. These systems are designed to be used in homes or businesses, and are composed of several components including solar panels, battery storage, an inverter, cables, and other electrical components.

Not only can it help reduce your carbon footprint, but you can also sell excess solar energy back to the grid and you’ll also save on maintenance costs compared to other types of generators.

Services we provide and how we come in

Lumos PV Power Systems Ltd offers tailored renewable energy solutions for your property, helping you save money on energy bills while promoting a greener and more sustainable UK. Our skilled engineers provide a variety of services, such as:

Solar panel and solar panel system installation

Installing efficient solar panels can seem like a daunting task. But don’t worry – our team of certified electricians is here to make the process easy for both domestic and commercial clients.

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity, and they even work in overcast conditions. So, using these panels is both a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to generate your own energy for your property – saving households and businesses money on their energy bills in the long run.

Battery storage installation

We also provide solar battery storage solutions for your property. By having a solar battery storage added to your solar PV system, you can store energy in solar batteries that can be used when needed. This allows you to save money by using stored electricity instead of buying it from the grid.

AC and DC coupling

Lumos PV Power Systems Ltd offers customers a choice between AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) coupling when implementing solar batteries. This allows customers to customise their renewable energy solution based on their individual needs and preferences.

AC coupling is a type of battery storage system that is connected to the electricity grid. This allows solar panels to continue charging the batteries even when there is an unexpected power cut. Usually, both grid electricity and solar panel energy work together to charge the batteries. But in the event of an outage that causes the battery storage system to detach from the grid, solar panels can still charge the batteries, allowing households and businesses to keep their lights and appliances running.

DC-coupled solar batteries have become a popular renewable energy solution for UK homes and businesses. These systems combine an inverter and battery to create a hybrid setup that lets users store excess solar power for later use, such as at night. This means that energy generated during the day doesn’t have to be used right away, allowing for more efficient energy use and long-term savings.

Hybrid Inverter Installation

Why choose Lumos PV Power Systems Ltd?

A hybrid inverter is a device that combines AC and DC coupling, allowing you to store solar power in batteries for later use. The result is a hybrid system with the benefits of both AC and DC coupling. At Lumos PV Power Systems Ltd, we offer high-quality hybrid inverters that can be easily added to existing or new solar PV systems on your property.
