For domestic customers, the 335 mono offers the following benefits:

  • Saves roof space – Compared to conventional 250W panels, the 335 mono has a higher efficiency per m2, meaning that less panels are required to generate adequate power.
  • Saves on installation costs – Because fewer panels are needed, labour costs will be less than an installation using 250W panels.

  • Maximises ROI – The highest domestic tariff for FiT is available for installations with a capacity of up to 4kW therefore, with just 12 panels at 335W maximum paybacks can be received, compared with the 16 standard 250W panels.
  • For commercial customers, the 3355 mono offers the following benefits:

  • Maximises roof/ground space – Businesses installing 335W modules will benefit from more power per m2, compared to those using standard 250W.
  • More potential – By generating more power in the same amount of space, it means that users can not only benefit from lower energy bills but can store any surplus power for later use which reduces grid dependence and increases self-consumption.
  • Waxman Energy is confident that latest PV offering from AUO-BenQ can provide the ideal solar solution for their growing list of customers. This, combined with Waxman’s high-quality design service and knowledgeable staff, will help to provide true value to their customers’ experience.

    Waxman Energy's First GoodWe Battery Storage Training

    ELLAND, UK: Last week (18.02.2016) we opened our doors and welcomed professionals from the solar industry in order to present the first of four battery storage training days, dedicated to providing further information about GoodWe’s latest offering. It was a great success with candidates from across the country coming away with valuable information about the technical aspects of the emerging technology. Held at our sister company, Waxman Training Academy, situated at our HQ in Grove Mills, Elland West Yorkshire, the training day helped people from various backgrounds in solar to become educated on PV battery storage and how it can help current and new users to benefit from solar, after FiT cuts.

    The large decline in solar PV subsidies means that installers are looking for new ways to ensure solar is a viable alternative to grid fed electricity. Without a favourable incentive from the Government, less people are inclined to take up solar, even though it is now more affordable than ever with far more benefits than the FiT alone, this is why battery storage holds a vital key for the future of solar PV.

    Once a pricy commodity, PV battery storage is now much more cost-effective with higher technological benefits to boot. GoodWe’s offering caters for new and existing solar PV installations with its BP retrofit and ES hybrid systems helping end-users become more self-sufficient and gain more control over the energy they use.

    In the training these products were introduced and further explained to provide installers, retailers and sales people with further knowledge as to the way they work, their installation and maintenance. The Training Academy was almost full to the brim with eager candidates and along with theoretical explanations, they benefitted greatly from the in-house dummy model for further hands-on experience.
