Solar Photovoltaic System Installation In Bournemouth & Poole, Dorset.

Lower your Electricity Bills - Dorset and Hampshire


DIY Solar Photovoltaic System Installation

Given the energy price hikes, a great way of lowering your electricity bill is by installing a photovoltaic system at your Dorset or Hampshire home. The solar PV panels can be sited on your roof or in your garden and the electricity produced can be used directly, stored or fed into the national grid, therefore reducing your electric bill.

There are pros and cons to DIY solar electricity installation, the most obvious is the energy saving. Completing a DIY project can also be very satisfying, as can be the thought that you are taking positive steps to reduce your carbon footprint.


On the downside, there are some big pitfalls to overcome, unless you are installing a simple off-grid solar power system to supply just your Dorset shed or Hampshire garage.

Building your own solar array can require expertise, specialist tools and technical knowledge. OK, these can be learnt, which is fine if you can find the time to fit it in around your work, social and/or family lives. There is one major aspect of your energy saving solar PV installation that requires a qualified electrician, that is connecting to the grid. But, during your DIY project, there are many other times when having an electrician alongside is extremely handy


So give us a ring, We have the knowledge and expertise to help you from start to completion of your DIY solar project from sizing your PV system to connecting to the National Grid. Call us on 07378 449 449 to chat directly to a professional electrician.


What do you need to get a Dorset solar energy DIY project underway?

Firstly, you need to work out what size of system you need and then calculate the square footage of photovoltaic panels you need. This is perhaps the most important part of the project in order to make it cost-effective. To do this, you need the sum total of the power output of every electrical appliance in your home. You then need to work out how many hours a day each is used and from these figures, you can work out the watt hours per day required.

The total can then be used to figure out how many photovoltaic panels are needed to fulfil your energy requirements and the area they will cover.

Next you need to work out what components you need, such as the type of inverter (micro or string), charge controllers, wiring, battery storage, power optimisers, disconnectors (for grid, panels, batteries) and so on. Again, using a professional electrician to check over your plans and help out will give you peace of mind.


However, with help from MRG Electricians in Bournemouth, this preliminary work will not be difficult. Our electricians are used to doing exactly these types of calculation and know straight away what components are required.

In other words, we can help at any or all stages of your DIY solar electricity project. Just call us in when needed, for example, sizing the system and making the grid connection. It will still be your own DIY project, but with the peace of mind that comes from getting expert advice here and there when required.


Our number is 07378 449 449, so jot it down now and call us when you are ready.
