Absolute’s philosophy is to supply and install systems that are going to provide high efficiency and remain reliable over many years into the future. There is a significant difference in components available so beware when considering a solar PV panel system. Naturally products will evolve but take a look at our current component credentials. To see how they all work together click here.
Being the most important part of the system, we only use top quality Mono crystalline PV panels manufactured in Germany. They are TUV approved (equivalent to British standards) and are highly efficient for Northern Europe compared with the majority of mono crystalline and Polycrystalline panels. Unlike many of its counter parts, it benefits from low degradation rates ensuring great results for many years. What’s more they are supremely reliable – in fact we’ve never had to replace a panel due to breakdown!
These units convert the DC power generated by the panels into usable AC power for the home. One of the functions of the inverter is to switch the system’s effectiveness between cloudy and sunny conditions. Inferior systems can take 2 or 3 minutes to switch but ours only take 1.4 seconds! Doesn’t sound much but think of the energy generation benefits over the lifetime of the system. Reliability too is second to none.
Revolutionary Absolute Solar Battery System (ASB System). In the past, battery storage for solar PV systems have been uneconomical for most households and lifestyles,with short life spans and very bulky lead based batteries. However, with the revolutionary ASB System that's no longer the case.
For the first time in the UK, it represents a leap in inverter and lithium battery technology making household power storage a reality.
How does it work ?
The concept is simple: while your solar panels are generating energy during daylight, the system will firstly power your usage, subsequently the extra generation will charge the ASB System. Once fully loaded, if there is any extra it will be fed back into the national grid. When the panels cease to generate electricity, the inverter will pull the free stored energy from the ASB System to power your usage. Only when the System is 'empty', does the system take power from the grid.
We only use the right fixings for the specific job in hand to ensure safety and security of the system and so that we don’t damage the tiles and structure of the existing roof. When it comes to installations on to flat roofs, Absolute have a unique purpose designed mount that makes installation quick and simple without the need to drill into the flat roof itself.
A system at ground level is always an option and with our specific mounting consoles made from maintenance free material ensures an efficient and neat installation.
If you have an immersion heater on your boiler system, this intelligent device is a sensible and practical addition to the Absolute PV panel system. The Solar iBoost concept is to use the surplus solar PV energy generated at your home to heat the hot water in your household water tank and save you money.
