Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need To Clean My Solar Panels?
It is possible for you to clan the panels yourself without professionals cleaning them for you, but the tools professionals use mean they have the ability to get in spots that you may not be able to clean yourself. At Empower, we offer a maintenance package that means you can have your panels annually cleaned and electrically tested at the same time by our team of experts.
How Many Solar Panels Will My Business Need?
However, this isn't always the case because regardless of the size of the business at the end of the day it all comes down to the electricity consumption that business uses. For instance, a smaller business might require a bigger system because the field of work means it uses a lot of lighting, technology such as computers, laptops, work mobiles, tablets, etc whereas you could have a larger business that works with very little reliance to electricity in comparison and therefore doesn’t need anything too big.

Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough For My Charity?
Businesses often decide to invest in battery storage as a solution to combat the loss of solar energy. The idea of battery storage is that it stores excess solar energy that is generated by your system in the daytime available for use when the sun is gone in and your solar system is unable to generate electricity. Another efficient way to utilize battery storage is by using it in the daytime on a day when there’s little sun, knowing you’ve got the flexibility to rely on your battery storage as a backup would be very handy.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
Can I Go Completely Off Grid With Solar Energy?
Therefore, most people with this idea would then purchase a battery storage device to do exactly that. With this comes weighing up whether going completely off-grid would be the most cost-effective idea because you're not just adding solar but you're adding on a battery storage device to this as well. For any charity business that is looking to be independent and environmentally friendly, this could be an ideal option.
How Long Do Solar Panels Last?
Is My Charity Suitable For Solar PV ?

Not only will this highlight your system options, it will also show the estimated generation that you can expect from your system based on accurate details prior to installation, instead of averages and ‘best case’ figures.
