However, and it is worth checking with the local electricity supplier what they will pay for exported electricity. 4 How much energy can a system supply? The annual energy output can be estimated using figures for the total annual incident solar radiation for the location, adjusted for the tilt and orientation and the actual efficiency of the array. Solar radiation data are available from a wide range of sources including CIBSE Guide A: Environmental design(20). These are usually ‘average’ data and the actual performance of a system in any given year is likely to vary from the value calculated using such data due to the statistical variation of solar radiation.

Design qualification and type approval BS EN 61646: 2005: Thin-film terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) modules. Design qualification and type approval BS EN 61730-1: 2007: Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification. Requirements for construction BS EN 61730-2: 2007: Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification.

These documents were published by the Electricity Association (and now available from the Energy Networks Association), and are recognised by the UK electricity industry as best practice when considering the connection of embedded generating plant to the distribution network. The primary concerns when considering connection of a generator in parallel with the distribution network are safety and power quality. The main safety issue is the possibility of the generator continuing to supply power to a section of the network that has lost the mains supply.
