Hi @Jasmin10 thanks for posting

At this time i do believe that OVO do not offer direct solar panal installation. Saying that there is a range of info you can find here: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/utilities/free-solar-panels - it even offers links to companies offering financial assistance to do so.

If OVO do offer such a scheme am sure @Emma_OVO or @Tim_OVO will point us on the right direction

Hooe this helps

Hi @Jasmin10 - I've tweaked the title of this topic and added some tags to help other solar panel people find the answers they need!

Great 'best answer' from @Mattj3135 here. Once you get those solar panels fitted, we do offer a feed in tariff arrangement. More info on this here: https://www.ovoenergy.com/ovo-answers/topics/payments-and-statements/payments/whats-a-feed-in-tariff-fit-and-how-do-i-apply.html.

His panels would are charging electric battery - electric battery that was powering his ebike. to offer him additional vary on already charged batteries.

He wouldn't are running his ebike of 300watts of panels directly.

300Watts of panels produces, at max, eighteen Amps at sixteen volts, or twelve Amps at twenty five v (at theoretical Georgia home boy potency - which suggests a chilly day with bright direct sun pointed directly at the panels).

As you'll grasp having associate degree eboard, you need, at twenty five volts, around 70+ amps to induce anyplace. My eboard (6s) pulls up to one hundred twenty Amps uphill. On the flats around 30-70 amps. Even with higher voltage you have got a similar ratios - you’ll gain voltage however call amp production from your panels.

If you designed a really lightweight bike, with low friction tyres, panels angulate at the sun, in ideal weather, with a pedal begin, on flat ground, you may slowly propel yourself with 300watts of star. till you weren't aligned with the sun directly… and that’s with a solar battery space of 3metres by one.5 metres.

I am a star specialist - I create and install solar battery kits for camper vans, therefore i'm alert to what they're capabale of.

One issue I do knock off the summer, is charger a lead-acid battery with star, that I then successively use to partly charge by eboard typically. however a lead-acid battery doesn’t have the beans to charge a 15Ah 6s battery pack before the voltage drops below the charger’s minimum demand.
