Why Choose Solar Energy on the Costa del Sol?

Comprehensive FAQs About Going Solar

What Systems Do Solares Energies Provide?

Solares Energies offers a variety of solar power systems, including photovoltaic panels for electricity, solar thermal for hot water, and combined systems that integrate batteries for energy storage. Each system is customized to meet the unique energy needs of your home or business, ensuring optimal efficiency and sustainability.

Is Battery Storage Worth the Extra Cost?

While the initial cost of adding a battery storage system can be higher, the long-term benefits often outweigh these costs. Batteries provide energy security by storing surplus power for use at night or during power outages. They are particularly valuable if you have higher energy needs in the evening or if you seek to maximize your independence from the grid.

Can I Run My Air Conditioning and Charge My Car From a Solar Panel System?

Absolutely. Our solar panel systems are capable of powering all electrical appliances and systems, including air conditioning units and electric vehicle chargers. The key is to size the system correctly based on your typical usage to ensure it can handle peak loads, especially during hot summer months when air conditioning use is highest.

How Long Does the Installation Process Take?

The complete installation process typically takes from one to three days, depending on the complexity of the system and the specifics of your property. Prior to installation, we conduct a detailed site survey and system design process, which can take a few weeks to ensure everything is perfectly tailored to your needs.

What Is the Average Cost of a Solar Panel System?

The cost of a solar panel system on the Costa del Sol varies based on the system’s size and complexity, as well as any additional features like battery storage. On average, a standard residential solar system can range from €4,000 to €8,000. However, thanks to local subsidies and the high efficiency of panels in this sunny region, the return on investment is quick, often within 4-5 years.

Additional Questions From Our Customers I Need Solar Panels for Hot Water or Pool Pumps?

Our modern systems are fully capable of powering hot water systems and pool pumps, along with other home appliances, ensuring efficient and cost-effective operation. Understanding Feed-in Tariffs and Net Metering

These programs allow you to send unused energy back to the grid, receiving credits or payments that can significantly reduce your utility bills.

Can My Electricity Bill Be Reduced to Zero?

With proper system design and net metering, it’s possible to reduce your monthly electricity bill to zero, though fixed charges may still apply.

Are Batteries Necessary?

Initially, you may not need solar battery storage, but they can be added later to enhance system efficiency and provide energy security during peak usage times or outages.

What Subsidies Are Available in Spain?

Substantial subsidies are available through local government incentives and European funds, reducing the upfront cost of your solar installation.
