There's no denying that a solar PV system can be a great method to generate electricity, but getting the right return on your investment through careful planning can be instrumental in not only paying for itself but also reducing the length of time it can take to achieve this
The Solar Sniffer enables you to view the actual solar energy your panels would receive and how many kWh's you could be generating before you've even fitted them!
With this information its easy to see when and how much electricity your proposed KW system could generate and just how cost effective it could be
In-order to gather the most accurate data, find a suitable location to install the small panel, close to where the final PV installation would be.
Fixings and brackets are not included in the kits and would need to be suitable for your application, roof, wall etc. Slotted steel and angle iron make excellent mounting brackets for walls and posts.
Each panel measures around. 34cm x 24cm each and is pre-drilled in the rear of the aluminum frame, kits are supplied with 5m leads per panel but additional longer leads can also be purchased
Choosing a suitable location for the monitor (e.g. loft), this should be out of external elements such as sun or rain, within Wi-Fi range and USB power
Note: The entire system is low voltage, cables should be protected correctly to prevent any disconnections or shorts
Using your smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC, You'll be able to wirelessly connect to the Solar Sniffer and review your potential solar kWh's as it gathers your data in real-time
