Buying a solar kit: Avoid these common mistakes
A solar kit consists of key hardware, primarily solar panels, inverter, charge controller (if applicable) and battery. The kit has been identified for a certain size of solar system e.g 5kWp and the price is attractive because the products are bought as a group.
The most important benefit of a kit is that the components that have been put together are known to work together. Whereas someone without experience might mistakenly purchase inverters and batteries that are not compatible.
The video gives tips to avoid when looking at buying a solar kit.
Two main considerations before purchase are:
1. Check your power consumption for the appropiate kit
2. Confirm if your house is single phase or three-phase
